With Halloween being only eight days away, it’s costume crunch time. Whether you have a party to go to, a work costume contest, or just want to dress up for the fun of it, making your own costume is a fun way to get hyped for the spooky holiday.  If you need some inspiration for costumes, look no further! These costumes are pretty easy to make, and are much more creative than the ready-to-go costumes you can just buy online or at Party City. There is a mix of funny, punny, and cool costumes you can make yourself. Find the one that suits you. The best part is they can all be made in a day, so procrastinators rejoice!

Here are the costumes!

Couples Costumes

Mike and Eleven from Stranger Things. The eggos are key with this costume. Be sure to add a fake blood for Eleven's bloody nose!

Alien and NASA scientist. NASA logo tee, a green wig, and neon/chrome clothes, and you are ready to go! Don't forget the glittery makeup. (You could also do alien and conspiracy theorist to make it even nerdier!)

Harry Potter and Golden Snitch. We've seen so many variations on the Harry Potter costume, but this one is a little different! 100 points to Gryffindor.

A firefighter always needs their trusty dalmatian! 

Ron Swanson and Breakfast.

“Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have… Wait. Wait… I’m worried what you just heard was give me a lot of bacon and eggs. What I said was give me all the bacon and eggs you have.”

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy save Halloween!

Group Costumes 

Fruit Salad! All you need is some oversized tee-shirts, paper cut outs, and some accessories. 

Shark Week. The fake blood is a requirement for this costume. 

Pac Man and the Ghosts!

Cards Against Humanity. Add as many card combos as you want to fit as many friends who want to join in on this hilarious costume.

The Seven Dwarfs. You just have to exhibit one character trait for the whole night. 

Pun Costumes

The news may be fake, but this pun is front page worthy.

How did green become the color of envy? As far as phrase costumes, this one is pretty clever. 

Holy Guacamole may be something you've only heard said by a grandmother, but it doesn't take away from this cute and clever costumes. 

50 Shades of Grey... paint. Just tape free paint swatches to a black tee-shirt. 

Cool & Cute Costumes 

Why not dress up as everyone's favorite type of kiss?

Terrarium Dress. The most trendy plant can turn into the most trendy costume!

Starbucks Frappuccino!
