A Cruella costume is a great idea if you want to be instantly recognizable. The white faux fur coat, black maxi dress, and red stilettoes can definitely be worn to other events. The red gloves and cigarette holder can be reused for future costumes.
This Lara Croft Costume is a great last minute costume and you may already have some of the pieces somewhere in your closet.
You can never go wrong with a Black Widow costume. This one requires a little bit of DIY work. A black utility belt (or a plain black belt) can be worn as her first belt. You can use the Black Widow emblem pin and a piece of elastic to make Black Widow’s second belt.
Space Cowgirl costumes will probably be big this year. I included three different looks with pieces you can mix-and-match. This is a great costume idea if you want to do something with a group of friends.
Both the Catwoman costume and the Batman costume resemble the costumes from “Batman Returns” (1992). These costumes are ready to wear so you will not have to worry about finding a lot of extra pieces to complete your look. This is definitely a show stopping couple look.
This Harley Quinn costume I put together has two replica pieces, a belt and boots. If you want to add to your costume, you can always put small tears in the shirt and draw a heart on your cheek.
I put together two different angel looks. Both are great last minute costume ideas that will be popular year after year.
This little devil costume has pieces you can add to your closet. The straps on the bralette may come up close to the neckline of the top, but any cute bralette will work for this look.
Playboy Bunny costumes will not go out of style. Similarly, to the Space Cowgirl costumes this is a great group costume idea. This costume is complete and ready to wear.
This is another great last minute costume and you may already own pieces like these. I put together three looks that you can model your costume after. All you have to do as add cat ears for a complete look.
The Harry Potter series has a special place in my heart. I just had to add a Hogwarts student costume. I included links to the items you can put together to form your perfect Hogwarts costume. What’s your Patronus?
There are so many directions to go in with witch costumes. I ended up putting together four different looks, but there are so many possibilities.
These Minnie Mouse costumes are family friendly options. Both of the dresses are vintage inspired and if you enjoy retro style they will make a great addition to your closet. This costume is another great couple costume idea. I included links to items that can be worn for a Mickey Mouse costume.
Bonus Mickey Mouse
Alice (Alice in Wonderland)
Similarly to the Minnie Mouse costume, I found a cute retro inspired dress for the Alice in Wonderland costume.
Velma & Daphne
Velma and Daphne costumes are a great idea for a dynamic duo. If you have an additional friend, they can dress up as Fred.
Wednesday Addams is actually one of my favorite characters. I even dressed up in a Wednesday Addams costume one year for NY Comic Con.
Here are two incredibly cute ready-to-wear Wonder Woman costumes.
Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Be- This Beetlejuice costume will make you stand out at your next costume party.
Dr. Ellie Sattler
This Dr. Ellie Sattler costume is another look you may have the pieces for already.
You can always dress up in a super cute Tinman costume. A little bit of DIY work is needed for the funnel. You can try to hot glue it to a headband so it stays on your head all night.
I will admit… I am into with all things Dalmatian print right now. This Dalmatian costume would look so cute in a group, especially if you have a Cruella.
This referee costume is a great last minute look.
If you love Arrowverse as much as I do, you will love this ready-to-wear Supergirl costume.
This Jessica Rabbit costume is pretty dressy and you can definitely re-wear this dress. This is a great wedding guest dress.
This is a super easy and comfortable costume idea.
I would totally wear this assassin costume.
These fuzzy two-piece sets are super cute and they look very comfortable. I think this makes the perfect bunny costume.
Mario & Luigi
These Mario and Luigi costumes are another duo costume idea.
Minions are super easy costumes to put together and they make great group costumes.
80s Jazzercise costumes are so fun and vibrant. There are so many possible combinations.
These flapper costumes are so cute that I wish I could throw a “Roaring Twenties Party” right now! There are three flapper inspired looks to get you started. I also added two additional 1920’s costumes so you can coordinate with a larger group if you want to.
Bonus 1920s Look
Bonus 1920s Look 2
Everyday Girl 1970s
I actually might buy something like this. I am in love with this 1970s inspired look. For this outfit, I pulled inspiration from photos from the 1970s. I added a 1970s inspired companion look.
Bonus 70s Look
This costume requires a bit off DIY. You will have to attach strips of the trim to your arms and legs. If you want to leave the catsuit unaltered so you can use it for other costumes, you can try attaching the trim with a small piece of Velcro or try to make straps using some black elastic.
This police officer costume is a super cute last minute costume.
This cheerleading costume works well in large groups of friends.
This garden fairy costume is fun and whimsical. It is also super easy to put together.
This convict costume is another easy last minute costume. It also goes well with the police officer costume.
Lily (Jungle Cruise)
This Lily from Jungle Cruise Costume uses pieces that you may already have in your closet.
Wanda Maximoff has a style I really like. I gave you guys two options for Wanda costumes. The first look was inspired by her look in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and it includes items you can always wear again as separates. The second look is a complete ready to wear option based on her “Captain America: Civil War” look.
This is another great last minute costume. You might already have some of this stuff from college lab classes.
