30 (More) Last Minute DIY Halloween Costume Ideas


So we all know I've been excited for Halloween pretty much since the 1st of September... but somehow it does always seem to creep up on me and every year, without fail, I seem to have to rush over to YouTube to look up some last minute Halloween costumes because I've left it so long! This year I actual don't have anything to dress up for, which makes me incredibly sad (any excuse to dress up and I'm there!) but that won't stop me from browsing Pinterest until the early hours of the morning coming up with costume ideas for the Halloween party I'm not going to, haha! So yeah, this post is for all of you out there who always leave their costumes to the last minute and need a quick DIY costume for that party on Tuesday night! Hopefully you find something quick and easy from my list, but if you need more ideas I actually wrote one of these last year so you'll find 30 more ideas over there! Also, feel free to share your own ideas in the comments - I would love to hear them!
