Halloween is coming fast! Are you ready for Halloween night?

I love this spooky holiday and usually give a lot of attention to it, but planning a costume can be a bit of chore if you are short on time.

As so often happens, you think that you have enough time to prepare your Halloween costume and then suddenly find yourself in a pickle.

Halloween has now arrived, but you don’t have anything to wear – you don’t have a creepy costume!

Don’t panic – There are many looks you can put together on the cheap or from stuff you already have in your closet at home.

1. Morton Salt Girl Halloween Costume

One of the quickest DIY Halloween costumes is Morton’s Salt Girl.

If you already have a yellow dress (or even a yellow coat), an oversized umbrella and a container of Morton salt, you are ready to create this iconic image.

Of course, it would be better if you add a blonde bob wig and rain boots in order to conform fully to the famous logo.

But even if you don’t wear a wig and boots, most people will appreciate your pretty costume.

Don’t forget to style two simple braids and complete this gorgeous image with a cowgirl hat.

3. Bank Robber Halloween Costume

You can really find everything you need for this costume in your wardrobe.

Well, you need a striped shirt or T-shirt (although it can be a black one), black jeans and black and white sneakers or just black boots.

Finish your costume with a black eye mask or go heavy on the eyeliner.

Don’t forget to put on a black beanie to be a real bank robber and take a money bag.

If you don’t have a dollar sign bag, take an old pillowcase and a black marker to draw a dollar sign on the front.

4. Real Nerd Halloween Costume

One more simple idea for a quick Halloween costume is a nerd as all you need to do is to look smart and a bit silly.

First of all, you should wear a high-waisted skirt or pants with a tucked in white shirt or blouse.

Then complete your look with suspenders and taped glasses, plus remember, your hairstyle must fit the look.

Choose pigtails or a neat bun to finish off this cute Halloween costume.
