6 Last-Minute Halloween Costumes That Double As Cosplay

You waited until a week before your event to come up with a costume, but here are plenty of ideas to help.

6 Last-Minute Halloween Costumes That Double As Cosplay

So, you are reading this because you either need a costume for Halloween or a convention. And, obviously you waited until last minute. It's okay, don't freak out. Breathe in and out. I have 6 suggestions to help you cleverly come up with a easy costume for your upcoming event.

1) Any cast member of Bob's Burgers.

They all wear basic clothing, you would really only have to worry about certain accessories for some of them like glasses or Louise's amazing hat. You can find most of these items at stores, though. And, you may even have some of the clothing items already.

2) Any cast member of Adventure Time

So many of the characters in Adventure Time have costumes based in regular clothing. Well...the main characters anyway. Raid your closets friends! I'm willing to bet most of you have a blue t-shirt. If your favorite character is something a little more intricate like LSP try finding a purple dress and wig. Draw a pretty star on your forehead and slay like she would.

3) Mario and Luigi

Guys, really, all you need are some overalls and a red or green long sleeved shirt. You can buy the Mario and Luigi hats on for a fair price. If you're more crafty you can buy a hat and make the M or L out of white craft foam. Super easy and fun.

4) Resident Evil Characters

I realize that some characters are harder than others. Nemesis would be crazy hard, but Jill, Claire, Leon, and most of the main characters have clothing that's easy to piece together. Hit up amazon or an army surplus store for tactical gear. If you have a few days before your event I made tutorials on how to make a Claire Redfield cosplay.

5) The Queen of Halloween - Wednesday Addams

If you have a dress with a peter pan collar you're set. If you have long black hair, you're even more set. To make this even more simple most stores sell peter pan collar necklaces for under $15. If you already have a black or dark colored dress you're all set. This is easily one of the cheapest and most recognizable costumes you could do.

6) Homicidal Maniac

Maybe you just weren't digging any of my ideas, or maybe you just don't have time. You could always quote Wednesday Addams. She speaks the truth. You could also check out Rachel Zimmaro's 11 Last-Minute Halloween Costumes for more ideas.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
