Grunge rock star

Got plaid? Pair a flannel button-down with an oversized tee and slightly dirty jeans. No need to wash your hair and the longer the better. Carry around a guitar if you really want to go all out, but it’s the rebellious attitude that’ll pull this one together. Looking for a group costume idea? Go as a whole band like Pearl Jam or Mudhoney.

Quarterback proposes adhering a quarter to your back as a literal quarterback. This would work for men and women alike, and it’s about as easy as instant Halloween costumes get. The only drawback is you’ll probably spend the whole night pointing to the quarter on your back and hoping no one grabs it otherwise you’re a former quarterback.


Wear white tights and a long-sleeved white shirt on a cool night. Then drape a preferably stark white sheet around yourself in the style of a fierce Greek goddess. Grab a bendable stick and tie some gold and red leaves around it as your crown and be Demeter, goddess of the harvest.

Spa Addict

No need to hide your vices on Halloween, especially if hitting up the spa is one of them. And why shouldn’t you take advantage of the one night a year when it’s socially acceptable to wear a mud mask, hair wrap, and fuzzy slippers in public?

Athlete or Superfan

On this night of choosing your own adventure, choose to be either a star athlete or a team’s craziest super fan. The first requires your best gym clothes and maybe a sweatband around the head for good measure. Being a super fan calls for at least a team jersey and bonus points if your wear a team hat and serious team-colored face paint.

50 Shades of Grey

Whether you’ve read the book or not, this is one of the instant Halloween costumes bound to elicit plenty of intellectual groans. Yay for bookish funny costumes! Pull every grey accessory and clothing article from your closet and find a way to wear as many as possible. Paint each finger a different shade and don’t forget about grey eye makeup and silver jewelry.

Target practice

A solid black shirt and pants are the best bottom layer for this one. Use three different colors of masking tape to create three concentric circles with a black circle in the middle. Congratulations, you’re a walking bullseye. Beware of flying arrows, chocolates, and anything else all the Katniss Everdeen will be tempted to send soaring your way.
