Low Effort Halloween Costumes
The secret to last minute, low effort costumes is to take out all your clothes and get a big picture view of what you have in your wardrobe. You’ll make a giant mess in your room but it’s probably the easiest way to make a quick, feasible idea pop out to you.
1. A music note
Just cut out a music note with some black paper and tape it to your shirt!
2. Nametag costume
Jim, from the beloved show the Office, had some great low energy Halloween costume ideas. Like his nametag costume. All you need to do is wear a nametag sticker with the name “Dave” on it. This costume needs almost no effort whatsoever but fellow Office fans will still love and appreciate it.
3. A ninja
If you have a black shirt and pants then you already have the perfect ninja costume! You can add a sash on your belt and head to complete the ninja costume.
4. A burglar
Similar to a ninja costume, all you have to do to rock the classic burglar look is wear black, gloves, and make a makeshift burglar mask with paper, or by cutting out eye wholes in a blindfold.
Dead people and things are always popular as a Halloween costume. You can literally dress up like anything, then just use makeup to make yourself look more dead. Mess up your hair for good measure.
