11 Easy Last Minute Halloween Costume Tutorials You Can Whip Up At Home — VIDEOS
Every year Halloween not only includes a fun night of dressing up in whatever you want to be for the night, but also the pressure that comes with finding a cool and trendy costume that will be different than everyone else's. Sometimes it can be hard to find a group of adult friends who actually enjoy dressing up for Halloween, but if you have found that group, you definitely won't want to miss out on a good costume party — even if it includes finding a last-minute Halloween costume.
If you're pressed for time this year, luckily you have literally millions of YouTube tutorials at your fingertips to help you find an easy costume to make at home with items you can just pull out of your closet (warning: some sewing and DIYing might be included in some of the tutorials). Even if you have just a day before your party or before Halloween and have time to stop by a craft or fabric store, normally you can get all the materials for a DIY costume in one stop for half of the price it would be to buy one at a Halloween store.
