Over 80 Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas ?

Hi there Kind Friends!

With Halloween being this weekend (holy crap) and many themed parties on the horizon, I’m here to share with you over 80 Halloween costume ideas that can be put together in a matter of days. The majority of these ideas come from a collaboration with Andrea’s Choice and Cook1emonster (linked below) on YouTube but I’ve also added some relevant links to similar tutorials you can use as well as costume supplies from Amazon Prime, since they are about the only place you can order from online this week and still get the products in time.

So, let’s get started.
