Simple and hilarious last-minute costumes that'll save your Halloween

BeFunky Collage.jpg

We get it, you've been busy dealing with your emotions after watching The Walking Dead premiere, you don't have time to think about your Halloween costume, which is why you've left it until last minute.

But don't give up, you still have time to pull this off. Don't reduce yourself to turning up to a party in a Scream mask and your regular clothes, because the 50 fit girls dressed as Harley Quinn are going to think you're a right mug.

Instead, go for one of these easy and literal Halloween costumes that can be pulled together in no time at all.

Cereal killer

You get to eat loads of cereal and come across as a comedy genius without putting any real thought in whatsoever. You're living the dream.

Ginger bread man


GET IT?! Hahahaha! Hahaha... no...? okay #ginger #gingerbreadman #punny #pun #ilovepuns #toofunny #hilarious

The rise of the red heads continues. Now they have a ready-made Halloween costume by adding just a few loaves of bread. Pass me the hair dye.

Bat man


Would still rather watch this guy in a movie than Ben Affleck.

For an extra Halloween scare use a real chicken and threaten everyone in your proximity with salmonella poisoning.

Get pissed easily and want to make it until the end of the night? This outfit will allow you to carry a baguette around with you all night as a snack, and you won't look like a complete weirdo.

Edgar Allan Ho


This is truly terrifying. No one wants to see a long deceased iconic writer slut dropping on a dance floor, which obviously means you definitely have to do it.

Alice in chains


Combine your love of niche American rock and classic Disney into one inappropriately sexy costume.

The band might be absolute trash, but this simple t-shirt is an absolute treasure.

Kevin Bacon


Anybody? No? #punnyhalloween #bacon

To really get into the character of Kevin Bacon, sell your soul to EE and tragically act in a series of annoying adverts.

Fantasy football


Bloody Americans (*shakes fist in frustration*) and their incorrect terminology for football. Replace that pigskin bullshit with an actual round ball and your outfit will be on-point.

Excited for the world's most depressing band to headline Glastonbury next year? Then get your Art Attack on and draw a radio on a bit of cardboard and stick it to your face.

Horn dog


A costume that makes a great excuse for when you start drooling everywhere from the excessive amount of Jagerbombs you've ingested.

50 Shades of Grey


Jamie Dornan, what were you thinking? The Fall made you one of the most exciting young actors in the world, then you had to go and be sadomasochistic for a bucket load of money. Which I don't really blame you for, I'd sell my morals for £5 and a bag of chips.

Pot heads


It gets harder to smoke weed when you grow up, because the level of munchies you get makes your arse jiggle for a month, but this is a safer way to be a pot head. As long as you don't walk into a busy road or anything with your newly impaired vision.
