Fashion Friday: Lazy Halloween Costumes pt. 2

child dressed as a ghost

Halloween always seems to creep up on me, following me silently until it's two weeks till and I have again failed to assemble something resembling a costume. After taking a peek in my closet and realizing I have exactly one costume, I decided that I probably wasn't dressing up again this year (alas, I'm too lazy even for lazy costumes). I may have resigned to my fate, but you don't have to choose this path, dear reader, for born from my cheapness and penchant for simplicity comes another slew of "technically-passing" costumes for Halloween. Or cosplay. Really, whatever floats your boat, I don't care.

Stylish Freddy Krueger

Freddie Krueger Inspired!

Pair with dark, dramatic makeup for maximum stylishness, and maybe buy one of those Krueger claw gloves from the nearest Halloween store. The Monster is a cute idea but only if you're prepared to explain a dorky pun all night.

Mako Mori from Pacific Rim

DIY: Mako Mori

Becoming a badass mech pilot is easier than ever! Just get a wig and throw on your "today is laundry day and all my other clothes are dirty" outfit, and BAM. You're Mako Mori in the middle of a training sesh.

Lois Griffin from Family Guy

DIY: Lois Griffin

Button downs are great for most occasions, so if you don't already own a few, you should probably get on that. The same goes for khakis. And flats. Really, I think Lois is just practicality personified.

A Minion from Despicable Me

Despicable Me DIY Halloween Costume

Overalls are back in fashion now, and I can't think of a better reason to buy a pair than this costume. Honestly, how much cuter can you get? Hint: NOT MUCH.

A Titan from Attack on Titan

DIY: Titan

Okay, this is neither cheap nor lazy, but it's genius idea. Alternatively, you can opt for a less expensive muscle morphsuit, or if you'd rather be a regular run-of-the-mill Titan, a nude unitard.

Be sure to check out the other installments of Lazy Halloween and my DIY Halloween collection on Polyvore for maximum inspiration. Do you have an idea for a costume? Tell me about it in the comments!
