This one’s hella comfy, and it may be easier to create than you think. Just grab your favorite oversized sweatshirt and sneakers, and you’ll basically be ready to go. If you choose the right outfit, the Ariana Grande look can be super simple. All you need to remember  is to always put your hair up in a ponytail.

Simple T-Shirt


This is for the people who just don’t give a … 🙂 … and who can afford to overnight a package. You don’t have to do anything extraordinary for Halloween — all you need is the perfect T-shirt. If you go with a simple tee, you’re guaranteed to be super comfy. Plus, Betches has a ton more shirts to choose from, so you can basically be anything you want.


Giddy up! You don’t have to be from the South or the West to love this Halloween costume idea. Grab your favorite blue jeans, boots, and flannel, and you’re basically set to go. If you have cowgirl boots or a hat, the better off your costume will be! But, don’t worry, they aren’t necessities for that perfect Halloween look.

Prom Queen


Are you looking for an excuse to break out your old, fancy ball gown from your senior prom? Well, today is your lucky day! Dust off that long dress, and buy a cheap tiara from the nearest party store. You’re sure to steal the show with this outfit! And, if “polished prom princess”isn’t your style, throw some fake blood on the gown and some dark makeup on your face. You can transform yourself into a zombie prom queen!

Regina George or Damian from Mean Girls

If you’re feeling daring, be Regina. Take a white tan top, and cut two holes right where your boobs are. (Make sure to wear a cute bra because everyone will see it!) Pair the holey tank to with a cardigan, a miniskirt, and a pair of heels. Then, strut your stuff.

But, if you’re not feeling having your bra hang out all night, be Damien! Grab a sweatshirt and a pair of sunglasses. Be sure to put your hood up and tighten it around your neck all the way! This costume will be even better if you make a sign that says “She doesn’t even go here.” You don’t have to get one professionally done, either. Just grab a piece of paper or cardboard and a Sharpie to create your Halloween masterpiece!

Victoria’s Secret Angel

Don’t worry; you don’t have to run around in a thong and see-through bra all night to be a VS Angel. All you need is a pair of angel wings and some sort of robe. It really is that simple!  (This is also a great couples costume!)



Baseball, football, soccer, and basketball are all amazing costume inspo. Pick a sport, and be one of the players! Your parents, siblings, cousins, or friends may have a jersey that you can borrow. Just pair the jersey with a pair of sneakers, and your look will be on point. Oh, and don’t forget those sporty black lines under your eyes!

There you have it,  eight easy, last-minute costumes for all you procrastinators. There really is no need to spend a lot of money on costumes… unless you really want to.
