I am so busy this year that Halloween is having to take a lower priority than I usually would give it. I go ALL out for Halloween and always do a annual Halloween party, make several costumes to wear to parties and work, and go crazy with pumpkin carvings and pumpkin patches (last year I bought 12 pumpkins from our local patch. I may have a problem). However, this last month I've barely had time to sleep, let alone do all that. I bought some mini pumpkins from Trader Joe's while doing the only grocery shopping I've managed all month and haven't even had time even think about sewing a costume. So this year I'm making my own "Lazy Girl's / Super Busy Girl's / Last Minute Guide to DIY Halloween Costumes. Because, "Ain't nobody got time for that!"

Most of these are all things you could put together from your closet or get from Amazon or by making a quick run to H&M, Target, or a Thrift Store if you are ambitious. You don't have to fight the crowds of last minute shoppers at Halloween Costumes Hell to find the picked over slutty costumes no one else wanted to wear. It's the perfect solution to flex your creative muscles while not having to take up time you don't have in your busy schedule right now. OR, if you are lazy (AND who isn't every now and again???), it doesn't have to take away from your time watching Halloween Wars and waiting for your delivery to arrive. Hope it helps you!

PS: This post was originally going to have these breakdowns as well as pictures of me wearing each of my own versions of it, however, somethings just have to give sometimes. #Priorities

Do you dress up for Halloween? 
Do you wear different costumes for work and for the weekend? If so, is it because it's more appropriate or because you just want an excuse to wear more than one costume this year (like me)
Do you have any of these items in your closet that you could throw together for a last minute costume?  
What are you dressing up as for Halloween?  
What last minute costumes have you worn before? (I've done Morton Salt Girl, Rosie the Riveter, & Holly Golightly)

  2. When I saw Wednesday Adams, I thought you'd go in the homicidal maniac direction like she did. I mean, hey, they look like everyone else.

    1. Nope, I tried to have a wide spread of variety for all audiences so anyone could find something they'd like. :)
