We admire them, we want to go to parties with them, but we can’t all be those people who plan their costumes eight months in advance. So, what to do when Halloween party season rolls around and you’re completely unprepared? You can rush to the nearest costume store and drop $50 on whatever is left, or you can make efficient (and creative) use of what you have.
Wear black pants with a bright blue shirt. Put star stickers all over your legs. Spin a hula hoop (or three) around your waist.

Assuming you’re awesome, you already have this gear. Wear muddy jeans with a muddy shirt, tall rubber boots and a respirator. Pull on some rubber gloves and high five everybody.
Wear all black or all white, and make yourself a mask out of a T-shirt. No black and white? Be a floral ninja. Be a gingham ninja. Work it.
Dig out the aluminum foil and go nuts. Cover half your body. Cover just your arms and legs. Have one metal hand. Make antennae. Draw buttons and dials on the foil with a Sharpie.
Inflate green balloons and pin them to your shirt through the ties. Only have white balloons? Add a shower cap: You’re a bubble bath.
