Sometimes Halloween creeps up on us, and it can be hard to come up with the perfect costume in time.

If you still haven’t gotten yourself a costume, here are some quick and easy ideas from Pinterest that you can make with things you probably have at home.


All you need for this cute costume is a red and white striped long sleeve shirt, blue jeans, and a red and white beanie. To top it off, a pair of black glasses, a cane, and a camera are the perfect accessories!

Darla (from Finding Nemo)

To look like this small, but mighty mischief-maker from Finding Nemo, you just need to resurrect that used headgear from beneath the bathroom sink, put on a plaid skirt, a purple “Rock and Roll Girl” shirt, pigtails and a plastic baggie with a fish (fake or real) in it. You could even add fake freckles if you really want impress!

Rosie the Riveter

Rosie the Riveter is the perfect Halloween costume if you’re looking for something super cute and simple! An old pair of rolled up blue jeans, a blue button-down shirt, a red bandanna, red lipstick, and combat boots are all you need to make this adorable costume complete. Flexing your lady’s bicep is optional.
