10 Easy Halloween costumes ideas to try this year
First things first, let’s figure out what kind of costume would you want to wear this time. Are you doing a couple’s costume? Or you and your bestie want to plan something together? You want to go solo for this year’s Halloween? Another thing you have to consider, since the costume is last minute, is what you have in your closet that you can use. Like that, you are going to make things very easy for you. If you have a wig from last year, why not use it? You can just change the hairstyle. With these 20 ideas that you are going to see, your Halloween costume will be effortless, but still amazing!
1. The one and only – Morticia Addams
Why not dressing like the icon itself – Morticia Addams? If you think about iconic movies, or characters related to Halloween, one of the things that will probably pop in your head will be Family Addams. You can get so many costume inspirations from the movie. Here, you are going to need a long black dress, long black wig and a rose. I think this is simple, but it will make you look absolutely remarkable!
2. The Red Riding Hood
The Red Riding Hood is not a Halloween classic, but still a classic. You are simply going to need a long red cape, a basket and comfy shoes. If you want your costume to be a bit more elegant, you can put some heels on.
3. Mad Max from Stranger Things
If you want to be trendy, but there is no time to prepare, check out Max costume from Stranger things! It does not require much – denim shorts, a t-shirt and a skateboard. If you are not a redhead, you might need a wig as well. If you want to do it the scary, spooky way, you can do Max costume from the scene in season 4, where she is levitating. You will need all white contact lenses and let the scares begin! If you want your house to match your costume, check this Levitating Max Halloween decoration!
4. Easy Halloween costumes – Emily in Paris will give you inspiration!
Speaking of trendy TV shows, there is no way you missed the viral series Emily in Paris on Netflix. The character was living almost every girl’s dream. She has so many looks on the show for you to choose from. She was iconic for making crazy color combinations, but somehow it worked! Oui, oui, mon cheri!
5. Harry Potter themed costumes – Expecto patronum!
There is no Halloween that has passed, without me watching Harry Potter movies! It became such a tradition that we make a movie marathon with my friends, and we even bought wands. We love being extra, when it comes to Harry Potter. Put the Sorting Hat on and tell me, which house would it be – Slytherin, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw?

7. Kim Possible
We all wanted to be Kim Possible when we were little kids. She is one of my all-time-favorite character fighting bad guys. This is a very simple costume that does not require much. If you already have a pair of parachute pants, use them to turn into Kim! You will need a black crop top and a ginger wig. If you want to include your bestie, she can be Shego – Kim’s enemy!
