Uh-oh — Halloween is coming up, and you may not have your costume ready. Don't panic; we've got you covered. Below is a list of costumes that you can put together in minutes. Most of them can be created with items you already have in your home!
Crazy cat lady
If you're already a crazy cat lady in real life, you will probably have a bunch of cat plushies in your home. Stick them on you, wear a bathrobe, and do up your hair in curlers to instantly show off your crazy cat lady status.

Are you totally over costumes this year? Buck the trend by writing the words "Error 404: Costume Not Found" on a plain white shirt.
Take a cue from Jim from The Office for what might be the easiest costume on the planet.
The 1% or 99%
Go as the one percent by wearing fancy clothes and holding up an iPad that says one percent. Go as the 99 percent by making a cardboard sign and dressing in casual, more free-spirited clothes.
Party like a wild animal in your animal-print outfits! More pun costumes here.
Kid in Pajamas
Wear PJs, pigtails, minimal makeup, and slippers, and carry a stuffed toy.
God's Gift to Men/Women
This is such a no-brainer costume. Look really great, then tie a ribbon around yourself. Finally, attach a tag that says God's gift to men or women (depending on which gender you want to bestow your beauty upon!). You don't have to put yourself in a box; a gift tag is good enough!

If you want to be ghostly this Halloween, cut holes out of a bedsheet and throw it over yourself.
Static ClingSource: Instagram user chelseaarlene91
Go as static cling this Halloween. All you need to do is pin socks and bounce sheets on your clothes. Don't forget to muss up your hair!
Transform into a spider with black clothes! For the legs, just use three pairs of pantyhose, which you can either leave as is or add stuffing to.
Be a cute vintage homemaker with rubber gloves, a spatula, pearls, a floral apron, cat-eye glasses, and a dish towel. Betty Draper, you have some tough competition!
Get a bunch of purple or green balloons, blow them up, then stick them on your clothes. You can just throw on a green accessory for the leaves, or draw and cut out leaves from regular paper.
Take last year's Christmas tree decorations and drape them on top of a green dress.
You definitely won't scare anyone with this costume. Wear a plaid top, jeans, and a sun hat, and paint your face to complete the look.
Make unicorn horns by rolling up a piece of paper to make a cone. Wear pastels or white, and you have your unicorn costume!
Have a white dress and a veil lying around? Be a dead bride or bride from hell. Bonus: paint your face to give it a blue tinge.
Stick gummy worms (or toy worms) in your hair and paint on some dramatic eye makeup to turn into the monstrous Medusa.
Bring out your claws with this cat outfit. The cat ears are easy to make, and you can choose to make them with either felt or black paper. Then paint on a nose and some whiskers, and you're good to go!
