The best Halloween costumes are either singularly clever and original, meticulously homemade, or both. Given that you landed on this article—probably because you googled “best Halloween costumes,” and we just used that exact phrase twice in the first two sentences—mere days before Halloween itself, it’s safe to assume you’re out of clever ideas and haven’t been toiling over a sewing machine every night since August. In that case, the smartest course of action is to pull together a kind of boring Halloween costume comprised of stuff you already own, alongside a couple of stylish new things you’ll keep on wearing long after your stash of leftover candy runs out. Why blow $80 on some Sexy Teletubby costume you’ll toss out immediately, when you can turn this into a half-logical excuse for copping wavy new menswear instead? We don’t know either. Here are seven ways to pull off the latter.
