It’s October, which means that, despite the pandemic, Halloween is very close, and you need to come up with an idea of a costume. If you live on a budget and don’t have much money to spend in a costume shop or just lack time for preparation, you will definitely appreciate our ideas of effortless and last-minute costumes for guys and girls in 2020. Let’s get started!
What can be easier than putting on some formal outfits and print a fake FBI ID badge? Of course, it’s much easier to become a Scully for an evening if you wear red bob, but you can find a cheap wig at a local shop.
Scully and Mulder usually wear black or dark-grey blazers paired with matching trousers and white shirts. You can also add some forensic accessories like gloves or a magnifying glass to make your costumes even better — no need to say that this is a perfect idea for a couple or two friends.
Unicorns are cute and funny. What you need for a unicorn costume is some white or holographic clothes, a little bit of glitter to put on your face and hands, and cardboard or paper to make a horn (golden or silver preferred). You can add as many details to your costume as you like – there are a lot of variations of make-up to pair your costume with.
Another perfect costume idea for a couple is an iconic duo of Sandy and Danny from Grease movie. All you need to achieve this look is a pair of leather pants, a black t-shirt (a shoulder-off top for a girl’s look), and a black leather jacket. It’s a good old classic that looks very stylish and also doesn’t require much effort – chances are you have something similar to the characters’ outfits in your closet.
Don’t forget to copy the hairstyles of this famous couple, and you are ready to rock!
Another classic movie character is Kevin McCallister from Home Alone. And though you don’t look like an 8-year old boy, you still use this character to create a funny and recognizable look. Just wear a pair of light pants and a knitted oversized sweater. Clap your hands to your face in a scream for that well-known movie shot.
If you don’t have any time for preparation at all, then this costume idea is just for you. You can wear your everyday clothes – everything you like, for example, a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. All you need to do is to add a headset with a microphone to become a sports commentator or a game streamer. It’s possible that you will be asked a lot of questions about your costume because it’s not very obvious, but you will definitely have fun.
If you want to use your existing clothes and don’t want to buy anything new specifically for Halloween, you can become a Sims character. You can use any of the clothes that you have in your wardrobe and add a mood crystal (plumbob) on top of your head. You can easily craft it using some paper or cardboard, a marker, a piece of wire, and a headband. You can also choose the color for your crystal instead of going with classic green as there are multiple shades of mood that a Sim character can experience.
All you need for this look is some tight black clothes, a mask made out of some black fabric to cover your eyes, and a black beanie hat. You can add some details to your costume, like a pillowcase full of “cash” or some “gold bars” in your pockets. This is a classic comedian look that is very easy to replicate.
