Quick & Easy Last Minute Costume Ideas

Choosing a last minute costume for Halloween is more stressful than it sounds.

You think you have tons of time (why does October always seem so long?), and then three days before the 31st, you’re like “what am I going to be”? Fortunately, over the past few years, there’s been a HUGE influx of DIY costumes using things that you (probably) already own.
