Halloween is almost here! Are you dressing up this year? Whether you’re attending a virtual Halloween party from our apartments near Humble, TX, going out to a local Halloween event, or you’re just watching The Nightmare Before Christmas and other spooky flicks in your Halloween finest, now is the time to put your costume together, if you haven’t already! After all, just because you’re social distancing doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the spirit of the holiday! Luckily, if you’re not already prepared, there are plenty of costumes you can throw together last minute with just what you’ve got lying around at your West Lake Houston apartment. Keep reading for inspiration!
Cat Out of the Bag
Cat costumes are popular for Halloween, and not just because black cats are spooky and cute. Any cat costume is pretty easy—just grab some cat ears, or make some yourself out of a headband and some construction paper or felt cut into rounded triangles. Then draw some whiskers on your face with a bit of makeup or even magic marker in a pinch (just make sure it’s not permanent marker).
To make this a punny “cat out of the bag” costume, just tape a paper bag to your shirt and you’re good to go.
If you’re going to be within 6 feet of other people while wearing this costume, an all-black cotton face mask with white whiskers on the front makes an excellent on-theme addition.
A Luca Character
Perfect for folks with curly hair, this costume idea is easy to pull off because if you don’t already have everything you need in your closet at home, you can easily find it at pretty much any casual clothing store. To pull this off, all you need is a striped T-shirt, blue beanie, and denim culottes (or rolled up wide-leg jeans) for Giulia, blue shorts and a light-colored button-up for Luca, or brownish shorts and a yellow tank top for Alberto. Other characters from this movie like Giulia’s dad Massimo or the bully Ercole are also easy options.
For bonus points, using some blue and green eyeshadow, lipstick, or face paint can help you turn your Luca or Alberto costume into a mid-transformation seamonster version. Body glitter can also be used to look like scales.
Ghost costumes are ubiquitous for a reason! All you need is a white sheet, tablecloth, or other fabric you’re willing to cut some holes into, or that’s thin enough to see through already. If you don’t already have some, you can easily pick up a used tablecloth or white sheets at a thrift store for a few dollars. We recommend also using a belt of some kind just to keep the sheet where you want it, otherwise, you’ll be adjusting the fabric all night long.
If you prefer, you can also easily turn your ghost costume into a punny ghostwriter costume by adding a notepad and pen to the ensemble. What could be easier?
The Bernie Sanders Mittens Meme
Got a brown winter jacket, a face mask, glasses, and some very cozy mittens? Then you’ve got what you need to transform into the viral image of Bernie Sanders sitting at Biden’s inauguration. If you’re attending a gathering or other Halloween event, you get bonus points if you photobomb everyone else’s photos in an homage to the way this image was meme-ified by the internet earlier this year. You also get bonus points if you maintain a vaguely grumpy expression and cross your legs whenever you sit.
All you need to be a scarecrow is a pair of denim jeans or overalls, a flannel shirt, and some black eyeliner or face paint (again, a magic marker also works in a pinch, just make sure it’s washable). A stitched smile, patch nose, and blush marks are easy to paint on your face, even without much practice, or you can let the face mask do the work by buying a themed mask ahead of time or adding the patchwork nose and stitched mouth to one you already have. For bonus points, patches can be cut out of extra fabric or even paper and added to your clothing. A wide-brimmed hat will go a long way too. For even more bonus points, grab some paper straws or cut out paper strips and attach them to a hair tie or rubber band, then wear around your wrists and ankles to approximate your scarecrow’s straw filling.
