Picking out an elaborate Halloween costume that is worthy of winning all the awards at your costume parties is fun... but sometimes, it's just not practical. Who has the time to come up with a truly unique idea, search for all of the perfect items that are reasonably priced, and then potentially DIY most of the costume?! You have a job, a social life, and your own mental health to take care of, so if you can't seem to squeeze in time to make an epic Halloween costume, we honestly can't blame you. But if you'd like to wear something, and you find yourself down to the wire, you might start to panic. That's where the below super simple costumes come in: these are easy, last-minute Halloween costumes that you can make with just one item. It doesn't get much faster than that!
These costumes all feature one item that you just can't go without if you're trying to be at least a little bit legit about what you're wearing. You should own all of the other stuff that can go along with the costume, because most of it is pretty versatile. Okay, so maybe your costume won't be the most convincing one out there, and maybe you won't win any awards, but who cares? Sometimes you need the laziest option possible, especially when Halloween falls in the middle of the week.
Below are a few simple costume options that will only require you to go out and purchase one item that should be easy to find. Happy Halloween!
