Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas From That One House Party We Had.

This may come as a shock, but Halloween is tomorrow. And just like my past costumes, I’ve waited til the last minute to post these awesome photos of that one house party we had. It was epic. Halloween, or party-wise, I might have peaked at 23. Back in 2011, those were the days when we still had some original 4 Loko left over to throw in our mostly-vodka punch, and we still survived the next day. Today I’m okay with drinking red wine (or just eating some Halloween candy) instead and reminiscing with these sweet photos. So let’s see if we can get some last minute Halloween costume ideas out of this post.

Dead girls. Recipe: buy Halloween makeup kit, paint face white, blacken eyes, and apply liberal amounts of fake blood.

Left: Remember when Kim Kardashian got married? To kick it up to 2013, go as pregnant Kim. Right: There are no last-minute Blacks Swans, so put down the feathers and just give up. This costume takes tons of prep.

Left: Jesus. Recipe: longish hair, beard, sarong, sandals, and the crown of thorns if you’re the type of person to take it that far. Right: This guy is Mr. T. You’ll see more later.

Goldilocks. This costume is dumb, but it follows a long tradition of me throwing on things from my closet last minute. My husband went as a bear, so with him around it made more sense. Recipe for Goldilocks: blonde hair or wig, girlish dress. I doubt you want to carry around porridge all night.

Let’s take a second to admire these test-tube drinks. Pretty!

Ahh, some of my faves. Left: Albert Einstein. Recipe: crazy wig or bleached hair, crazy mustache, pizazz. Right: Wilson from Home Improvement. This one is genius. Recipe: Fisherman’s hat, flannel shirt, and some fence. If you’re scared of Home Depot, cut out some cardboard in the shape of a fence.

You could always go as your favorite beverage, Pabst Blue Ribbon. Recipe: Wear white, red sash, blue ribbon, cut out letters with felt our write with a fabric pen. Far right: A traffic light. Recipe: wear all black and cut our felt circles in red, yellow, and green. PS: that guy in the background with the blow-up doll on his head went as Planking. How amazing is that?

We set up a photo booth by setting up a tripod in front of a cool backdrop. We made this mug shot style background out of a tablecloth, black electrical tape, sharpies, and red dye.

And last but not least, Deadmau5! Also, a really gross picture of me. But I’m too lazy to go back into Photoshop and replace it with another photo.

  1. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however ,
    I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading
    links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My website addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly
    benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested
    feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from
    you! Fantastic blog by the way!

  2. You are so awesome! I do not think I have read through something like that before.
    So good to find somebody with some genuine thoughts on this topic.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This website is something that is required on the web, someone
    with some originality!

  3. Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Bless you!

  4. It is a great way to keep your kid occupied and engrossed in an activity.

    You can have the bunny holding a gift basket in place of the egg basket for a real easter treat for moms, grandmothers or even a thoughtful
    easter hostess gift. This one has already found its way on some top toy lists and we think girls
    will enjoy moving the furniture around and really playing with this new toy.

  5. Hoover C2401 cleaner contains somewhat dome-like lid as well as a locking hose that allows you to examine the waste that the vacuum assembles
    in the clean up process. Also, upright vacuum cleaners area less expensive and are much easier
    to store. For bagless vacuum machines, check the compartment where dust is stored.

  6. Aw, this was a very nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to produce a top notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole
    lot and never manage to get anything done.
