What are some cheap, last minute Halloween costume ideas?

Asked by Harrow185 (298points) October 30th, 2010

I want to go as something that I could just wear normal clothes but have a twist with them. For example; going as a nerd or a geek, because all it involves is a button up with a tie. I have no time to go out and get a costume, so I was thinking of making something at my house. Costumes along the lines of a nerd, ninja..etc. I want something original. Be creative! Thank you very much for your ideas! :)

Go as a hobo. Old clothes, old hat, belongings tied up in a hanky that is carried on a stick.

Wear bluejeans and a white T-shirt with Fe written on it in sharpie. If anyone asks what you are supposed to be, tell them you are Iron Man.

Identity Crisis: Wear regular clothes with a bunch of “Hello my name is” name tags with different names on them

Ceiling Fan: Shirt that says “GO CEILINGS!” and a big foam finger

Road: Completely black clothing with yellow duct tape going down the center of you, and glue match box cars to yourself

Static Cling: Wear a sweat suit with socks, underwear, slips, bra, hankie, etc. attached to it by thread or pin.

As I said yesterday when I answered someone’s question, go as Hannibal Lecter. Make the mask yourself!

Go as an invisible person. Wave your hand in front of your face and say “you can’t see me.”

Rip up some old clothes, have runny makeup and go as a zombie lol

Bunch of grapes: Blow up a bunch of purple balloons and pin the tied—off ends to your clothes. Get some really good hair product and slick your hair straight up into a stem, then spray it green with some of that temporary halloween hairspray.

Umbrella Bat They explain it better than I do, but basically, start with a black umbrella and hoodie. Remove the handle from the umbrella and cut the rest of the umbrella in half, then sew it to the hoodie to make wings. I went as this last year.
