Halloween is here, and 99 percent of you probably don’t know what you’re going to dress up as. And don’t say you’re too old. No one’s too old to dress up for Halloween. If you’re stressing to find a costume, here are some great last-minute ideas.


Rosie The Riveter

A simple costume is Rosie the Riveter. Rosie the Riveter was a cultural icon in World War II, representing women who worked in factories, producing ships and ammunition for the war effort. To make this costume, all you need is a denim shirt and red bandana. Fold in half and tie the bandana around your head.


The robber has been a classic Halloween costume for generations.  A black-and-white striped shirt with a black beanie will suffice. If you want to go to the store, get a mask while you’re at it. If you don’t find one, grab a random bag. Just make sure the neighbors don’t get suspicious.


The nerd is a timeless costume that requires little to no effort. Some suspenders, glasses, and a calculator at your side will do the job. Get into character and let out a snort every once in a while. Halloween is a time when you can be anyone besides yourself!

Dancing Girls Emoji

The dancing girls emoji is one of the most popular emojis used today. Simple black shorts and a t-shirt will do for this costume. Bust into a dance routine every once in a while and do the Macarena. Don’t forget to bring a friend and have them join too!

Marty McFly

Marty McFly, the beloved character played by Michael J. Fox in the movie “Back To The Future,” is an all time favorite, loved by many people of all ages. Marty McFly can be remembered for driving a time-traveling Delorean back to 1955. To be Marty Mcfly, you’ll need a red puffer vest, a denim jacket, a casual button-down shirt, jeans and sneakers.
