#Halloween: so today's the day- still not got a costume?
Never fear, we know the panic. You don't want to have the same costume as anyone else buutttttt... you've left it too late and even amazon prime won't deliver in 6 hours- so what do you do? You chill.
There are plenty of DIY costumes that won't force you to compromise on having the best costume - and there's a good chance you'll own most of these already.
1- Wednesday from The Addams Family
The Addams Family is old but gold - and the perfect last-minute halloween costume. If you can, braid your hair - if not, try find a wig! Sling on a school shirt and sweater, splash a generous amount of your mum's palest powder on your cheeks and you're ready to go!
P.S. Ensure you look grumpy at all times.
2- A Ladybug
Find yourself a red jumper, cut out some circles, wear a black t-shirt underneath and you will have transformed into the most aggressive, carnivorous, notorious being in the animal kingdom. Perfect for Halloween.
3- A promoter of Flower Power, man
Got a floral shirt? Dad got a floral shirt? Dog got a floral shirt? Find one, wear it, add some sandals, backcomb your hair, and paint a peace sign on your cheeks.
4- Pop art character
All you need for this one is some block colour clothing and face paint.
5- Arthur from Arthur
Got a mustard jumper? White shirt? Blue jeans? You're sorted! Get dressed, cut out some ears and prepare to pose for fist-clenching memes.
6- Army Troop
Yep, we knew those camo trousers would come back around one day- thank you, 2012! All you need for this costume is one item of camo print/ khaki clothing and something to paint your face with.
So, if you can't get your hands on a full camo suit, just find a black tee, and camo trousers, and paint some eyeliner-stroke-warpaint across your cheeks and a generous helping of fake blood- it is Halloween, after all. Job done!
7- An older version of yourself
Take some inspo from Heidi Klum, clean out your grandma/ grandad's wardrobe and surprise everyone by turning up as an 80 year old.
8- A Hairy Biker
Someone in your house is bound to have a leather jacket, after that all you need is jeans, a stained white top (...probably not hard to find) and, if you don't have a great big bushy beard, you can either draw on a beard, try find a fake one, or grow one in the next few hours.
9- Cowboy or Cowgirl
Come on, everyone has a checked shirt. Team it with a pair of jeans and some boots and you're done! To go the extra mile, try find a lasso.
10- Donald Trump
Suit? Red tie? Fake tan? Awesome! You're sorted.
11- A pig in blanket
Paint on a snout, cut out some ears, wrap yourself in a blanket and you're sorted. Comfy and irresistible. Mmmm.
