If you’re anything like us, you start thinking about your costume precisely two hours before Halloween starts. That’s when you suddenly realize that your costume needs to a) stand out from the crowd b) cannot be the same costume you wore last year and c) has to be totally memorable so it can live on in infinite Instagram glory. So what will you be? There are only so many times Waldo can be found, there’s nothing original about a cowboy or girl going for their umpteenth rodeo, and everybody is totally over Disney Princesses.
Luckily, these five costume ideas tick all the boxes for an epic costume to be remembered: they’re based on puns, you don’t need much to put them together, and you can totally pull any of them off at the last minute for virtually no dough. You’ll totally be winning the Halloween costume game! So get ready, because this year your costume will be the one that everybody remembers, and there’s nothing scary about that.
