Last Minute Halloween Costumes You Can Half-Ass

Another year, another Halloween. As the minutes count down to your impending costume-required commitments, the question looms - what will you be this year?

While some of our friends will scour Craigslist and every Goodwill in town for the perfect costume, some just aren’t that dedicated. Not all are as creative as Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., who walk around year round kind of-posing as Nascar drivers because they feel like it.   

Lucky for you, we’ve put together a last minute guide to Halloween costumes you can create - with minimal effort! That way, you can ditch the stressing and focus on the true meaning of Halloween - ogling others with a way better imagination than you! Read on.

Riff Raff

(or James Franco pretending to be Riff Raff.)

Girls
Any button-down top or garden party chambray works. Pair with a high waisted skirt of your choice (prints encouraged) and flats. Lastly check out this DYI fake bangs tutorial - which is actually interesting regardless of whether or not you want fake bangs. You are:

Jess from New Girl. Minus the fake bangs, this also doubles as Frances Ha; 1/2 the cast of GIRLS. 

Guys
A button down shirt, khaki bottoms and a look of sad desperation. You are:

With just an oversized t-shirt, you are (easily):

Guys
Your non-designer jeans. A black tee. Now is also your chance to get a move on that Movember goatee. Walk around with your face or a pizza in your palm; you are:
