Eight Last-Minute Celebrity Halloween Costume Ideas

Are you struggling to come up with a good costume for Halloween this year? Worried that it’s a little last-minute to run to your local Halloween pop-up store only to find all of the prepackaged mummy and sexy kitten costumes are sold out? Well, don’t cut holes into your white sheets quite yet. I’ve got eight great ideas for you, and they are quite affordable!

All you need is a printer, some paper, scissors, and double-sided tape. Voila! Your friends are going to be sooooooo jealous. (Also, I taught myself Photoshop yesterday.)

Here’s everybody’s favorite friend Matthew Perry!

“Get your hands off my candy corn, you dirty ape!” It’s Charlton Heston!

Bernadette Peters is 63! Can you believe that?! Spooky!

Phylicia Rashad!

(Bonus tip! If you go with a friend as Bernadette, you can make him or her leave the room every time you enter it and always reference the fact that Rashad replaced Peters as the Witch in Into the Woods. OBVIOUSLY.)

Abraham Lincoln! What a hero you’ll be!

Fozzie Bear! Wocka wocka wocka!!!

Telly Savalas, baby!

Dame Edna! Remember her?

OK, just kidding. I’m taking Dame Edna for myself.
