Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas


It's getting scary-close to Halloween, and if you're anything like us, you probably still have no idea what you're wearing out next weekend. Never fear — here are a few of our favorite easy-to-throw-together costumes for Halloween 2010.

For the TV Junkie:

Snooki: The pint-sized Jersey Shore leading lady may have decided to dress like a pickle for Halloween, but for the rest of us, she alone makes the perfect costume. Go for a fitted, black mini-dress with a plunging neckline like this one (though leopard print works, too). Don't forget to tease that hair into a Snooki poof!

Sookie Stackhouse: More into sexy vampires? Try this sweet, True Blood-inspired costume to get those handsome vamps drooling. After all, nothing says Halloween like a friend of the supernatural.

For the Celeb-Wannabe:
Lady Gaga: This one's sure to be everywhere this year — you'll be able to find a huge variety of Gaga costumes, not to mention all the wigs, masks, and jewelry she's inspired. Just check the Gaga page at Ricky's for a few ideas.

Lindsay Lohan: It seems like only yesterday we were donning the Britney and K. Fed Halloween costume sets, but this year Miss Lohan has taken over. Looking for a costume on a budget? Here's a chance to dust off your skimpiest party dress, put on some heels, straighten your hair, and call yourself LiLo.

For the Classic Costume Lover:
Witch: If dressing up really isn't your thing, going as a witch can be a great option. Try a full-on outfit or simply buy a pointy hat and wear black. No one will question you.

Naughty Nurse: We're not huge fans of the "Slutoween" tradition (although non-sexy sexy costumes are hilarious — slutty Abe Lincoln, anyone?), but if you must, there's nothing like this classic nurse ensemble.

For the Couple:
Alice in Wonderland & the Mad Hatter: Dying to wear a big, princess-style dress but can't find a good reason to? The Alice in Wonderland look will let you do just that and give you the chance to play with some of your most vibrant makeup colors. You and your Mad Hatter will look simply magical in your fairytale garments.

The Plug & Socket: Not all couples are ready to embrace the cutesy "his and hers" outfits just yet, and for them, there is the plug and socket costume. The highly suggestive innuendo is just a bonus.
