Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

Posted by Kenzi Didericksen on

Halloween isn't Halloween without a costume. It's a great excuse to dress up, play with makeup, and eat lots of candy. If you don't have a costume planned yet, we came up with ten last-minute costumes you can put together with clothes you already have in your closet! We have also linked some options we have in-store for inspiration or if you need to get some last-minute shopping in.





All you need for a scarecrow costume is a flannel, overalls, and some makeup. Top your costume off with a straw hat. The best part? You can make this costume as spooky as you want! Add some friendly face paint to be a scarecrow pal, or get imaginative with creepy makeup and props for a costume worthy of a haunted corn maze. Stuff your shirt and pants with straw and hay for the ultimate finishing touch!

Pair together your favorite flowy, colorful, and bohemian pieces, and you'll have the cutest hippie Halloween costume. Here at ROOLEE, we're suckers for soft, wide-leg pants, and those match perfectly with the hippie vibe. Pair your wide-legged pants with chunky heels and long jewelry. Throw a thin headband over your forehead or top your hair with a floral crown. After this Halloween look, you may be convinced to dress like a hippie full-time.

If you want to feel fancy and beautiful in your costume, dressing up as a Princess may be your look. This costume would be a great excuse to wear your old prom dress one more time. If the old prom dress isn't your vibe anymore, replace it with your favorite floral dress and make yourself a flower princess. Add your favorite heels and a tiara and you're good to go. Based on the color of your dress, it's easy to add props to become a specific Disney princess if you'd like to put in some extra effort. And, let's be honest, you're already a queen, so this is hardly dressing up.

Little Bo Peep

Little Bo Peep is the cutest costume for girls of all ages. You can improvise this costume by wearing a blue and pink dress or skirt that is decorated with polka-dots or flowers. Top it off with a cute bonnet, head scarf, or bow. Bonus points if you have your kids or pets dressed up as sheep!

Virtually any black dress paired with black boots will work for this costume. If you can find a particularly witch-like stick outside, you can use it as your magic wand. Rummage through your cupboards to find a large black pot to use as your cauldron and a broom to fly on. You might even consider going the extra mile and filling your pot with dry ice or a green liquid. Lastly, almost every store and household has a witch hat during Halloween, but you can always stick to your wide brim, as long as you get your hands on some kind of hat!

Kim Possible

We're all superheroes in our own right, so embracing the Kim Possible persona would be a perfect fit. All you need to rock this look is a pair of cargo pants, preferably green, black combat boots, and a tight-fitting black shirt. If you have a black fanny pack, throw that on as well. You'll be set and ready to save the world from its villains in no time!

Minnie Mouse

Dressing up as Minnie Mouse is as simple as Halloween costumes can get! Put together a red or pink polka dot dress or skirt, and top it off with the mouse ears from Disneyland. If you're short on the polka dot styles, a solid red or pink dress will do the trick! If you only have skirts, pair it with a black or neutral long sleeve shirt.

Big Bad Wolf

The Big Bad Wolf would also be a simple costume that takes minimal effort. Put together a brown, black, or gray monochromatic outfit and match felt ears glued to a headband with the color of your look. A fuzzy sweater on top would mimic the fur of a wolf, so that would be ideal. Pair your look with boots to make your wolf costume a full fall vibe. To go all out, paint on a nose and whiskers.

The Tourist costume has been a fan favorite and trusty look for years. All you need to master this look is your favorite pair of sunglasses, a button-up floral collar shirt, khaki shorts, and maybe some binoculars and hiking boots. Summon your last ounce of summer spirit for this look. If you need an excuse to splurge and get yourself a spray tan for the occasion, this is your chance!
