Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Don’t have the money or time to put together an elaborate Halloween costume? No worries, the Northside Blog is sharing ideas for last-minute costumes so that you can have something to wear to the Halloween parties you will be attending around Richardson, TX this month.  

A Mummy

Breakout the toilet paper and start wrapping! This is a quick and easy costume that anyone can pull off. Plus, if you don’t want to converse with people, just stay in character and start moaning like an actual mummy.

Flight Attendant

This is an easy outfit to put together and you probably already have everything that you need in your apartment. A nice blouse, a pencil skirt, flats or low heels, a scarf, and a small rolling suitcase are basically all that you need. Don’t forget to put on your best fake smile!


Throw on some suspenders over a white t-shirt and wrap some white tape around the center of thick-rimmed glasses. Bring along a calculator because you never know when you might need to calculate an equation to maintain your image.

The Bachelorette

Throw on your fanciest dress or borrow one from your roommate, grab a bouquet of roses (real or fake), and go around the party asking people if they will “accept this rose.” If you are a guy, you can pull off the bachelor by putting on a tux or your nicest suit and doing the same.

Brawny Man

This costume works great for men. Grab a roll of paper towels (preferable Brawny brand), throw on a plaid shirt and a pair of jeans, and you are golden. You could also swap out the paper towels for a fake axe and be a generic lumberjack instead.

Movie Theater Floor

Dress in all black and attach popcorn, old movie tickets, and empty candy wrappers all over your outfit to complete this theatrical look. Bonus: If you spill something on yourself at the party, it won't matter!
