Top Ten Best Last Minute Scary Costume Ideas Websites

Updated on November 29, 2015

My Last Minute Hub On Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

You need a Last minute Halloween Costume idea? Don't worry, there are plenty to choose from. What you can accomplish last minute will depend on your resources and ability. Most of these last minute ideas are easy enough, but the quality of the finished product will be up to what you have available to do the job and of course how talented you are at putting together a scary ensemble.

Last minute, generally means you're running out of time, so it is wise to be selective in which Halloween Costume project you choose. If you choose a project that is overly involved or extremely elaborate, you may just run yourself out of time to accomplish it.

It only makes sense that if you are looking for a last minute Halloween costume you are probably in a bit of a hurry and clicking on sites that promise great last minute ideas only to find advertisements for expensive costumes that either need to be ordered or need additional supplies that are not easy to get can be frustrating.

This Top Ten list is purely subjective, however I'll try to stay on target with this mission in mind: "This lens is dedicated to making a link list of ten websites that promote last minute costume ideas. The criteria are that they can be easily fabricated, made of items you should already have available or can obtain with a quick trip to a local store."

If you have a last minute costume idea you'd like to share. please leave it in the comments section below - "Happy Trick or Treating"

Two Tips For Any Last Minute Halloween Costume Project

Get your mind right before you begin and if you keep these two thoughts the project will go much smoother:

1- Pick a project for which you already have the resources available. If you need to go all over town to find the items needed to put the costume together it's probably not a good last minute idea.

2- Don't worry about perfection. If this is a last minute project you are lucky to have found time to do it at all. If you have to improvise a bit for the sake of time , then trust yourself to do it.

      Thanks for the list! I should have enough time to prepare my kid's costume for Halloween that's why I bookmarked your lens.

      I like your advice about a mask - or fangs. I'll add the idea of a hat, which can really go a long way towards a last-minute costume. Easy-peasy!

      I loved seeing the old sheet - that was always our costume. I like the idea that with a very little you can get in the Halloween spirit. Blessed and pinned to my Halloween board.

      The Wind blown lady costume is my favorite. You could easily adapt it to other windblown ideas -
