How to Make a Last-Minute Halloween Costume

Sure, you have great plans for an elaborate Halloween costume for that special party, but what happens when you wake up Halloween morning and realize that the day has come and the costume has not materialized? Here are some great last minute Halloween costumes that can be made with a minimum of both time and energy.
 
Step 1:

Halloween

The good old toga costume. Everyone has sheets, so just wrap a sheet around you toga-style and pin it in place. Wear sandals - gladiator sandals if you have them - and cut a branch of some type of leaves from the garden for a wreath of "laurels" on your head. Just make sure the plant you pick isn't poison oak or this last minute Halloween costume will leave memories for a while!

Step 2:

Incorporate bathrobes. For men, wear pajama pants and a bathrobe and carry a martini glass around: you're Hugh Hefner! For women, try pajamas or a nightgown, slippers, and maybe a bathrobe, put your hair in pigtails, and you're a baby. These are two very easy last minute Halloween costumes.

Step 3:

Try a pun. Some last minute Halloween costumes can be witty. Use makeup to create a black eye and pin a big white letter "P" on to a black shirt and -- voila -- you're a Black Eyed "P." Get a rubber pig snout from a party supply store and wrap yourself in a blanket and you're a Pig in a Blanket.

Step 4:

Halloween Jack Grinning

Be a load of laundry. A great last minute Halloween costume for anyone who owns clothing: gather up some of those clothes which are lying all over your floor anyway and pin them to the clothes you are wearing. Add a couple of dryer sheets in random places and you're a load of laundry that just came out of the dryer.
