IF (LIKE US) YOU'VE ALREADY GOT DECADES OF HALLOWEENS BEHIND YOU, COSTUMES POSE SOME MAJOR CREATIVE ISSUES.
You've cycled through all your most original ideas—crazy cat lady (2005), Tippi Hendren in The Birds (2009), that unfortunate year your whole office dressed as, well, The Office (too recently)— and the thrill of buying an ornate, ready-made, spandexed costume has long worn off.
But here we are, another year of pumpkin spice lattes almost behind us and Halloween conveniently on a Saturday—and you've got nothing to wear.
You may plan to tell everyone you're "just going to stay in," but after copious texts from friends, you'll probably falter. Cue ripping apart your closet at 9pm at night, desperately seeking anything with sequins.
Before you default to the predictable, like Rocky Horror, a Game of Thrones character (because join the club), or just plain "grunge," here are some ideas for last minute costumes that don't require major commitment but still make a statement.
Because we're tired of all the sexy cats, witches, and nurses and we've all got an inner #girlboss just waiting to come out.
