5 Halloween Costumes That Need 3 Items Or Less


I'm a firm believer that last minute costumes can be just as great as ones that are planned out. All you need is a little bit of creativity, or, in this case, a few props and you'll be on your way. Whether you're looking to dress as something classic or a trending pop culture character, these three-piece Halloween costumes are perfect.

All Hallows Eve is right around the corner, which means you're probably scrambling to find a costume if you didn't plan well this year. If that's the case, you're in luck! There are tons of last minute costumes that are just as great as any other look out there. From TV characters to movie icons, there are many different ideas out there that don't require elaborate makeup or expensive outfits. Odds are you probably have most of what you need hanging in your closet.

These aren't your typical cat ears and a bunny tail type dress-ups either. All of them are something that you'll actually be proud to wear out. If you really want to spice them up, you can always add the perfect makeup look, but the three items will be the bases you need to look the part. Here are some quick and easy costume ideas that you've completely overlooked this year.
