Last Minute Halloween Costume

Are you planning on dressing up for Halloween on Wednesday? Usually I don’t, but this year I needed an easy costume that I could put together quickly for an event and I absolutely love how it turned out. I convinced my son, Ethan (5 yrs old) to be a part of it too, which was so fun. If your husband is anything like mine….he was not too thrilled to dress up, so I bribed my son to do it. Haha! This costume is perfect for anyone needing something fun and fast. You probably already have 99% of the supplies in your closet.

If you couldn’t already tell, I am Sandy, from Grease (and Ethan is Danny). It’s a pretty recognizable costume which I like. Who wants to spend a ton of time and effort on a costume that everyone is confused by? Here is the breakdown of the key pieces I needed for my Sandy costume:

Black OTS Top

Faux Leather Leggings

Red Heels

Black Stretch Belt

Gold Hoop Earrings

Red Lipstick

Curly Hair

Leather Jacket (optional)

For Ethan’s costume, I grabbed a pair of black denim, a white t-shirt, and converse type shoes from his closet. I did purchase this adorable black faux leather jacket that was only $28! He looked so handsome! I actually love that he was my “Danny” instead of my husband. I think it “up’d” the cute factor. Don’t you think? 🙂

In case you don’t have some of the items for this costume, I’ve found a ton of options for you that should be in stores that will work perfectly. All of them are very budget friendly.

So what are you all going to be for Halloween? I never used to dress up, but the past couple of years my kids have been asking what I am going to be and they seem to love when I have a costume. I’m not one to go out and spend a fortune on a silly costume I’ll wear once, so if you’re like me in that department, this is the costume for you!

Happy Halloween!
