There's nothing worse than having to get dressed up in costume when you haven't had the time to really put in the effort that is required to come up with a good, creative costume. It takes all of the fun out it.
Here are a few easy, last-minute and awesome Halloween costume ideas for when you realise that you have very little time left to pull something together:
1. Anna Wintour - a slip dress, a big coat, glasses, fur - you're ready. Grab a Vogue to assist those less in the know.
3. Daft Punk - suit and tie, gloves, boots and helmet. Done. Although, this one really involves a buddy.
4. Other great character costumes - Cher from Clueless and Margot Tenenbaum from The Royal Tenenbaums - two of the best cinematic female characters and also very easy to pull together.
5. Google Maps - I don't know why, but this costume appeals to my inner nerd, and it doesn't look like it would actually be that hard to make.
