Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Eva Amurri Martino shares a list of last minute Halloween costumes you can copy using clothes you already own.

Happy Halloween! Welcome to the spookiest day of the year, and if you have yet to figure out what you’re dressing up as this year, you are not alone! Because everyone’s lives are super busy, and kids oftentimes take center stage when it comes to costumes and prep– adults can get left in the dust costume-wise.  But that doesn’t mean you lost out on celebrating! Today I thought I would share a list of simple, last-minute Halloween costumes you can put together from things you already have in your closet or around the house.  Anyone can do it!

I decided to pull out some pieces and do some specific makeup to turn myself in to Wednesday Addams for this shoot…nothing better than a pregnant Wednesday. LOL. I can’t wait to hear if you try out some of these costume ideas!
