Halloween is like New Year’s Eve to me, in that it always seems so fun, but it ends up being more stressful than anything else. You need to figure out your plans, put together outfits, and coordinate with your friends. Seeing this in writing doesn’t sound like much, but believe me, it’s stressful.
Luckily for us, each year seems to get more and more out of balance, which, while not ideal for everyday life, ends up making for some fun Halloween costumes. We’ve found 15 nifty costume ideas you can get from Amazon – that’s two-day shipping. We’re looking at all of you trying to put together a last-minute Halloween costume.
This list includes pop culture moments, favorite characters, and individual and couple costumes. Good haunting!

Skelly is our Halloween king, and dressing up as the big monster is super easy. Just get a skeleton jumpsuit and stick some googly blue eyes in the sockets for Skelly’s off-putting signature LifeEyes™.

I still don’t know what’s in Pink Sauce, and frankly, I don’t want to. What I do know is that this makes for a simple and smart Halloween costume that – dare I say – might even be a little sexy.

Wordle really was That Girl this year, and if you’re a do-it-yourselfer, you should pay homage to Miss Wordle this Halloween. Start with a simple black outfit, cut out gray, yellow and green squares and glue them to your body Wordle style. You can even get creative and come up with a fun five-letter word to display on your costume like SCARY or PARTY.

Squilliam Fancyson is our favorite rich asshole. (Sorry, Elon Musk.) He’s got style, he’s got talent, and he’s got a gorgeous monobrow. You can replicate his look with a fancy dress, a purple ascot, a sticky mustache that acts as a unibrow, and some turquoise face paint.

We’ve all seen the pictures of Christopher Meloni’s dump truck butt. The man is clearly doing his squats. This look is so easy to recreate – you just need pants, a button-up shirt, a tie, and some padding for your booty. Maybe even increase the size of the pants to make room for all that extra cake.

Before winter, the bears of the Katmai National Park and Preserve turn into absolute units. And we all get to see them gain weight and vote for the best big bear. For Halloween, you can become a Generic Big Bear or the 747 Champion Bear of 2022. We love a comfy costume.

Chris Pine was in the mood among the don’t worry darling Venice drama. He had his little disposable camera, was in the middle of Spitgate and sat across Harry Styles calling the movie a movie. Get Pine’s glam-chic look with the following costume.

Rachel Sennott’s Alice was the real star of A24’s murder mystery. She was funny, she had an older boyfriend (played by Lee Pace) and she gave us the iconic line, “I mean, I’ve never told anyone this, but I have body dysmorphia.” Apply glow sticks and fake blood, and you’ve got an Alice costume.

Sheryl Lee Ralph was the first black woman to win an Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 35 years, and she looked absolutely killer as she accepted the award. Bling hair – a moment!

Mady from Euphoria saying “Bitch, you better be kidding” has turned into an amazing meme, and is an easy last-minute Halloween costume. Just make sure to say the line all night long.

Listen, Shrek and Donkey are already hot, but you can get them a little more excited for Halloween. We’ve gone for a more feminine approach to Shrek and a masculine approach to Donkey here, but of course you can change that however you like.

Ultimate Friends makes a great couple or friends costume. Don’t forget the felt, otherwise you’re just an ordinary platypus.
