13 Last-Minute Halloween Costumes You Can Make Out Of Stuff You Already Have

It's that time of the year again! Usually, I try to plan my costumes way in advance, but I always end up needing a last minute costume idea. These costumes are so easy you can pull them together in minutes while still looking like you totally tried this year. Hopefully, you'll have most of these staples in your wardrobe, if not you can always shop around in a roommates closet and make something work. No one wants to wait on the Party City line the entire week of Halloween so best wishes coming up with one of these costumes.

1. Rosie the Riveter

We can do it!

All you need for this last minute costume idea is a blue button up and a red bandana. How much easier could it get?

2. Wednesday Addams

I'm not perky.

Although the black dress with the white collar is her iconic look, anything all black with braids will do.

3. Eleven

She's our friend and she's crazy!

Have a pink dress and navy sweater, that's a brilliant last-minute costume.

4. Lumberjack or The Bounty Man

Timber!

A flannel and jeans is the most versatile costume.

5. Sim

I only speak Simlish.

This is the best last minute costume idea ever. All you have to do is print out the plumbob from this pdf, tape it together and stick it to a headband. Look at you! Such a creative costume in seconds.

6. Damian from Mean Girls

She doesn't even go here!

Every single person has a blue hoodie and a pair of sunglasses in their closet. This costume is basically just pjs.

7. Hippie

Peace out man.

This last minute costume idea is a little more on the complicated side, but with a few key pieces you should be able to pull it off.

8. Victoria's Secret Angel

What's my secret?

Robe + cute bralette = sexy model costume.

9. Maid

Cleaning services!

This costume requires an apron, so you might have to go out and buy one piece, but its adorable so its worth it.

10. Boo

It's scarin' time.

This last minute costume idea can literally be pulled from thin air. Its just a pink shirt and pigtails.

11. Scarecrow or Cowboy

Yee-haw!

Again, a flannel and jeans is a great costume. If you have a hat wear it and you're a cowboy, if not with a little makeup you can be a scarecrow.

12. 80's Workout Girl

Party off the pounds.

Bodysuits are super in right now so everyone has them. Add a pair of colorful or patterned leggings and you got yourself a look.

13. Some sort of animal

I'm a mouse, duh!

If all else fails put on some ears and draw on an eyeliner face.

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
