There might be a monstrously good costume in your closet right now.
Halloween is almost here, and that means you might be anxiously shuffling through your closet in a quest to make a creative last-minute costume. Though DIY-ing that detailed Game of Thrones costume sounded like a great idea a month ago, it might have turned out to be a bit too ambitious for your wallet and for your schedule — and that's totally OK. After all, there's nothing wrong with an easy Halloween costume.
At the end of the day, Halloween costumes don’t need to be super detailed and expensive to be fun and interesting, and this list of easy costumes you can make with clothing you have in your own closet is proof of that. Most of these costumes are made up of common clothing items like jeans, t-shirts, sweaters, button-down shirts, and a lamp shade (maybe that’s not a clothing item, but just give it a chance). The details these costumes do require, like sunglasses, a halo, or felt, are relatively cheap and you can usually get them online or at your local craft store. Check out these easy Halloween costumes, and then go dig into the dark, spooky depths of your closet.
