Okay guys. We pulled together all our recommendations over the years and plopped them all right here. Mostly because Megan is a total Halloween Scrooge (is that a thing?) and said “No more new costumes!”
So look, are any of these ideas super-relevant? Definitely not. Are they recognizable and pretty easy to pull from what’s already in your closet? Yes. And none of them are lame in that way where people can’t tell what you are, and then you have to explain it, which totally takes the fun out of the costume like having to explain a joke.
Below, all our SG-approved, last-minute Halloween costume ideas:
Do you own sweatpants? What about Converse sneakers? How about a winter beanie?
Then you can dress like Rocky Balboa running the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps.
Keith Richards is cool. And the Rolling Stones are impressively relevant in 2019. The band is still touring!
So stick an (unlit) cigarette in your mouth and skip washing your hair ’til the party you’re going to, and you’re already halfway there.
Be the science you want to see in the world with this nerdy chic Neil DeGrasse Tyson getup.
Okay, this one is a little more work because you have to figure out how to do the makeup. But….Bowie!
Why not go as everyone’s favorite high school football coach, Friday Night Lights’ Eric Taylor? You can take a shot every time someone says, “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose” when they see you.
…Actually on second thought, don’t do that. You’ll be SO DRUNK SO FAST.
But wait, there’s more!
You might need to buy a new hat for Indiana Jones, but that’s not so bad. You could even break out the Harrington jacket to go as James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause.
And don’t forget about Gabi’s hot take on wearing five different costumes incorporating overalls or a black suit.
