The problem with Halloween is that it comes right during midterm season, leaving those of us too preoccupied to find a costume. But, never fear! Listed below are some quick costumes that you can put together using household objects or possessions. Some below are even taken from T.V. shows, so stay tuned to see what genius costumes I have included in this list.
1. Three Hole Punch:
This costume is great not only because it is very simple to make (just cut out three black circles from construction paper and tape/glue them to a button down shirt) but also because it is a reference to one of the best shows ever: The Office!

2. Nudist on Protest:
For this costume, you can literally wear anything you want. Just wear something. And, if you want to spice up this non-costume, you can even make a protest poster. How easy is that? You might even get an eye roll when someone asks you what you are. And, isn’t that the best marker for how good a costume is?
Despite the name, this might be the darkest costume on this list. Halloween is a time to dress up like something you’re not, right? So, throw on some brightly colored clothes (heck, tie a balloon to your wrist) and tell people that this year you decided to be “happy”. And look at how believably happy those people are!
4. Miscellaneous Animal:
This is a favorite among sorority girls. But, hey, if it ain’t broke… Anyway, you can make your animal as sexy or as lifelike as you wish, but animal ears are always a must.

Instead of being a really awesome emoji (like the devil one or the dancing red lady), you could dress up like one of the emojis that just look like people doing weird poses. For instance, to dress up like the emoji below, just wear a long sleeved purple/pink shirt and make an X with your arms all night (or just when someone is confused about your costume).
But, there you have it, 5 last-minute costumes that require minimal effort. Who knew dressing up for Halloween could be this easy?
