7 Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

Great fun and easy costumes for everyone that don't look like they were thought of at the last minute.

Halloween is Monday and you still don't have a costume... What to do!!! While you could go to the pop-up Halloween store in the mall and rummage through whatever is left, we found some great costumes for all ages that will ensure a spooktacular Halloween.

A Little Bearded Garden Gnome - Your kids may already have the clothes. You'll just need to make a simple hat and beard.

Bag of Jelly Beans - You'll need a clear trash bag and set of strong lungs to make this sweet costume

Catch of the Day - This is a "reel" easy costume to put together.

Quarterback - This punny costume is quick and easy to make.

Spaghetti and Meatballs - Use a red and white tablecloth and a pot to make this saucy costume.

Lego - This costume is easy to build using a cardboard box, paper bowls and spray paint.

Baby Octopus - A great way to use those mismatched socks left in the dryer.


Remember, when your costume is all done, send us your child's photo to enter in our . You can win a Grand Prize which includes a trip to New York City or Los Angeles, a meet and greet with Heidi Klum and a donation of $1031 to your favorite charity.

Here's another easy one: Smurfs are big this year. Wear a blue shirt, blue leggings/pants/sweats, put white boxers or shorts over (or a white dress to be Smurfette), quickly sew up a white hat and voila!
