Happy Halloweekend, Y’all! The weekend is finally here. If any of you guys are like me, you probably waited until the last possible moment to look for a Halloween costume. Like most college students, we are all ballin’ on a budget. Your costume doesn’t have to be a cheaply made $50 polyester blend flapper dress from Halloween City, it can be clothes you already have in your closet! Here are 5 costume ideas that you can throw together last minute and still look fabulous!
Sandy from Grease
Grab those black jeans or leggings from your closet and pair it with a black top and a leather jacket! Do your hair up real big (beauty queen style) and throw on some red shoes, lipstick, and add some hoops. Viola! This could also be a rockin’ couples costume. Get your boo thang to dress up as Danny Zuko! Y’all will definitely be the best dressed and retro looking people out this weekend!
Rosie the Riveter
Denim tops are all of the rage right now! If you don’t have one in your closet I guarantee one of your friends will. Grab that denim top, a red bandana, red lipstick, some leggings and black shoes and you’re pretty much all set! Here’s a link to a hair, makeup and costume tutorial! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWyp65BND48
Throw on that black dress everyone has hidden in their closet and add a white collar! Part your hair in the middle and braid it. Simple as that!
All you need is a white dress (or sheet, even a tshirt would suffice), LOTS of gold jewelry, maybe some flash tattoos and a pair of gladiator sandals. Add smokey eye makeup and the look is set!

To get this look you honestly can use any dress. As long as you have pearls and a hair piece, or even a headband, the look will be complete! Pin your hair up and add a feather and you can’t go wrong.
I know you all will look amazing this weekend, I can’t wait to see pictures on Instagram and Facebook. I hope this gave a few of you some good last minute ideas! Stay fab and be safe, y’all!!
