Lemon Squeezy Halloween costumes

Halloween is just around the corner! For all you procrastinators out there (join the club aha), I searched up some cool Halloween costume ideas. For Halloween, i don't like to have a costume that i will only wear for one day and then never again, so I usually opt for the costumes that use pieces from my closet. So i scoured the internet, and here is what I have found. Introducing some easy peazy Halloween costumes!

1  Mary Poppins


I love this, i think most of the items here dont need to be looked for at a party store. Its just a
white shirt, black skirt, black tights, red belt, black shoes,black umbrella, and a big bag. I think the hard things to find are just the gloves, bowtie, and the hat. I love how you can just wear normal clothes as a part of your costumes with a few accessories, and the best part is that after halloween, each costume piece can be worn in other outfits. 


2  Lady Gaga
I think that this look is great, especially fun to make for the make up gurus. The best part is, that you can just wear all black and people can instantly recongnize you!

3  Nesthead

This is such a simple but amazing idea! I am certain that all of the components can be found in the dollarstore, just glue everything together and tada! The best part is, your costume is only a hat, so wear whatever you want!

4  Malcolm McDowell



I've never seen clockwork orange, but i do like the simplicity of this costume, wear white clothes and a bowler hat!

5  Audrey Hepburn


This is such a chic costume! and you probably have the costume pieces in your closet already! black sunglasses, large pearl necklace, long black gloves (this you might need to buy) and a sleeveless black dress.Just put your hair up in a bun and instant hepburn!

6  Leslie Knope 


I love parks and recreation so I had to include this! This is such a simple costume as well, with just some basic clothing pieces, black tuxedo jacket, white shirt, and black pants. This is so creative!

7  Scarecrow

This is a very easy to make costume, a trip to the dollar store should cover every accessory, like a hat, some straw to stuff in your boots, and the flowers. Then you just need a flannel shirt, jeans and boots. I think that for a special touch, you should get one of those plastic birds from the dollar store and just pin it to the hat.

8  Marilyn Monroe


Got a white dress that flares out? pair it with white heels and pin your hair into a bob. Instant monroe!

9  Bruno Mars/Bouncer


This was originally supposed to be a Bruno Mars costume, but i think it could also work as a security staff or a bouncer! Its so simple, but a great costume, and if you already have a suit, it wont cost a thing!


And there you have it! Some simple costume ideas! if you are still stuck after seeing these, i think that the best go to is just to draw a scar on your face with eyeliner, or wear pink and be a "mean girl". lol i hope you enjoyed seeing these and that they helped you a little bit!
