5 Easy DIY Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas | 2017

As we all know, Halloween creeps up on us so fast (pun not intended) & before we know it it's too late to go search for a costume, or you just don't want to throw away money on a costume that you'll only wear once.

With these DIY halloween costumes, you can have a costume for Halloween & have some wardrobe staple added to your closet!

Nancy Wheeler

Stranger Things

Now I love Stranger Things & I am so ready to start the new season, so of course I had to do a Stranger Things character. I chose Nancy because I LOVED her style in the show & with shearling trim jackets coming into trend was the perfect way to have this trendy piece of my own & be able to do a costume!


- shearling jacket

- flannel

- sweater to layer over the flannel

- dark wash jeans

- combat boots

- scrunchie

- baseball bat (to kill the demogorgon, duh)

Now this costume has a lot of layering, so I will suggest to delayer if you live in a warm climate.

Rachel Green


Again, another character from a TV show that I absolutely LOVE the style of. A Rachel look is really simple with 90's styles being VERY on trend!


- mock neck style top

- jean vest

- black mini skirt


- DIY Central Perk apron

- Coffee Mug (I love my Friends mug from my awesome Brother & Sister-in-Law)

Rosie the Riveter

Every girl should have a classic chambray top in her wardrobe! This is probably one of the easiest looks out of all of these & if you are on a crunch for time to find a costume this is the perfect one for you!


- chambray top

- jeans

- red bandana

French Mime

If you have a striped shirt in your closet, this is a very easy look to throw together. If you wanted to be even more creative, you can look up some mime makeup looks on Pinterest to make your costume more unique!


- striped top

- black jeans (or any jeans )


- beret

- mime makeup

- suspenders

Audrey Hepburn

Breakfast at Tiffany's

I'm sure most of you already have a little black dress in your wardrobe but if you don't, no worries! You can find a simple black dress ANYWHERE!

I absolutely adore this classy Hepburn look, what about you?


- little black dress

- pearls

- oversized sunglasses

Be sure to check out my video on these costumes!

I hope you got some inspiration if you needed a last minute costume. I can't wait to see what everyone dresses up as this year! Make sure to have a fun & SAFE Halloween!

Lot's of Love
