Where To Buy Last Minute Halloween Accessories That Will Get To You In Time For Halloween
The same thing happens to me every year: I have all of these amazing Halloween costumes all summer long (I wanted to be Barb before it was cool to be Barb!), and then once October hits I've got.... nuthin'. It's like I blink my eyes and all of a sudden its six days before Halloween and I still don't have a costume. Sound familiar? Thankfully, it's not too late: There are still some places that will deliver all the accessories you need before Halloween. So where can you order last minute halloween costumes?
Some expert tips when ordering late (I consider myself an expert because, as I mentioned, I am the queen of the last minute costume): Even though most places can overnight, order at least two days in advance in case there are any problems with shipping or delivery. Plus, the more ahead of time you order, the cheaper the shipping cost will be... things can get prettttty pricey if you wait to long (if only someone had told us how expensive procrastinating could be).
Here are five websites with easy accessories you can order now (err, before Thursday Oct. 27) and still get in time for Halloween weekend. And if all else fails, there's always the DIY route! My personal favorite is, and always will be, going as a ghost under a white sheet. No one can tell how old you are, so trick or treating is totally fair game. (True life: I did this senior year of high school and it worked).
