They say we can’t party ‘cuz of COVID, but who says we can’t dress up? Why not spend this Halloween with a couple of your closest friends and family and dress up in some of your favourite movie characters or artists from Tiktok or Netflix? All you need are some quick and easy Halloween costume ideas–that won’t break the bank.
Here are 10 easy last-minute Halloween costume ideas for you:
1. LED Light Up Stick Costumes
What better way than to light up this Halloween with a fun and easy Light Up Stick costume. All you need is a dark outfit and some LED lights of your choice to create a stick figure.

2. Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Make your favourite TikTok star/childhood movie come to life. This easy Willy Wonka costume only requires a black top and bottom with some white framed shades you can find at the thrift or dollar store.

3. Violet from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Continue the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory theme with a Violet Beauregarde costume. All you need is a blue jumpsuit, maybe a blonde short wig with bangs, and color your nose blue!
4. White Lie
Spill the tea with a little white lie. Get a white shirt and write something about yourself, that’s obviously “true”.

Get the Look: If you really want to make your mark, steal you Ex’s shirt, otherwise, Uniqlo has some great ones.
5. Early 2000’s Vibes
Let’s take it back a bit to the early 2000s. Ladies, don’t forget those low waisted jeans and a cropped crop top. Gentlemen, you can’t forget those jeans that are two sizes too large and some chunky shoes.
Get the Look: Just go hunt through your mom or dad’s closet.
6. Controversial Ghost
Probably one of the easiest, but definitely the most adorable costumes out there. Find some white sheets, pop some eye holes, maybe add some sunglasses, and you’re all set. Maybe even have a photoshoot!

Get the Look: Head over to Homesense or Winners for some bedsheets.
7. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (as in Sabrina the Teenage Witch) 😉
Who doesn’t love a witch? Get yourself a red dress or a patterned skirt, add some black tights and maybe an icy blonde wig with a headband. You got yourself a teenage witch!
Get the Look: Little Red Dress
8. Money Heist Costume
Inspired by one of the most popular Netflix shows, Money Heist (La Casa de Papel). Don’t have a red jumpsuit? Just find an oversized red sweater and top it off with a mask!
Get the Look: Red hoodie from H&M
9. Sandy & Danny from Grease
For anyone wanting to go a bit more retro, why not bad Sandy or Danny from Grease? Just find some leather pants, a black top, red shoes, and top it off with some curly hair.
Make it a couple’s costume by doing BOTH!
Get the look: Leather Pants
Buy Black Leather Pants
10. Emily in Paris
Why not spend this one-day dressing in Emily’s colourful popping outfits? Put together some of your most flashy and glamorous pieces or even do some last-minute shopping to replicate her looks.
