1. 1. A Bag of Jelly Beans
  2. What you need to do: Get a clear trash bag, cut holes for your arms and legs to fit through. Print the nutritional facts on the back of the costume, just like what you see on the backs of candy bags. Fill up the bag with colored balloons for the jellybeans, and tie up the trash bag near your neck with a ribbon. (Photo Credit: Brit.co)
  3. 2. A Stick Figure
  4. The hardest part of this costume will probably be creating your “stick figure head,” which can be made out of white foam board and black paint. The rest is pretty self-explanatory. Dress in white and use black electric tape to create the “stick figure.” (Photo credit: CreativelyChristy)
  5. Bonus: Step it up a notch and become a “glowing” human stick figure.
  6. 3. A movie theater floor
  7. I assume there’d be no better excuse to buy the extra big packages of candy and king size candy bars than to say you have to have them for your Halloween costume.
    Use something such as double-sided foam sticky tape to adhere the “garbage” to your shirt and pants. And cutting out the bottom of a Solo cup should allow you to easily slide it over your arm. (Photo credit: RayGun/Buzzfeed)
  8. 4. Identity Theft
  9. Both super cheap and quick, all you need for this costume are some name tags and a marker.
  10. 5. The Glowing Gown
  11. In the original tutorial, the woman sewed her own dress. Since we’re talking about last-minute costumes here and for the sake of time, I’d use something you already own that you don’t mind turning glow-in-the-dark, or purchase inexpensive attire while picking up the glow-in-the-dark paint.
    Here’s a summary on how to achieve this look from the tutorial:
    1. “The real star of the show was TULIP glow-in-the-dark fabric paint. I used a little under two bottles of the stuff, and I got it at my local JoAnn’s. After I sewed the initial garment, I painted the cotton broadcloth with two coats of the stuff and let it dry.
    2. Then, I overlaid the now-glowing cotton dress with a covering of tattered cheesecloth. Into this cheesecloth, I wove glow-in-the-dark thread. I ordered mine online, but I have seen it sold in stores since.
    3. After painting it with glowing paint and weaving in the glowing thread, I added a few frills to the gown. I made some rosettes out of the leftover fabric scraps, made them glow also, and attached them to the bodice and neck strap.”
  12. 6. A Dust Bunny
  13. This costume can easily be put together using brown and white tulle glued to a gray shirt. Add some bunny ears, that you can either make or buy, and you’re ready.
  14. 7. Straight out of the game Operation
