So your best friend’s Halloween party is in a few hours and you have yet to put together the perfect costume. Trust me when I say that we’ve all been there. I’ve made plans in the past to craft an elaborate costume weeks in advance, only to be scrambling to put something together the night of. While my party animal costume last year was a pretty easy last minute outfit, today I thought it would be helpful to give you five costume ideas that you can whip up in a pinch. That way you won’t be feeling the pressure when your Halloween festivities roll around. From Netflix’s latest hit to classic movie royalty, these five costumes will have your friends wishing they had taken a peek through their own closets. Keep scrolling to see five Halloween costumes that you can easily throw together this year…

Eleven from Stranger Things costume

1. Eleven from Stranger Things
I had to include everyone’s favorite leading lady on this year’s costume roundup. If you haven’t seen Stranger Things, I recommend buying yourself a Netflix subscription and getting cozy for a spooky night in.

 Vivian Ward costume, Pretty Woman

2. Vivian Ward from Pretty Woman
When I said classic movie royalty, I meant it. Why not strut your stuff this Halloween dressed as Vivian Ward, Julia Roberts’ iconic ‘90s role in Pretty Woman? I’m sure most of you already have the over-the-knee boots to accompany the outfit…

3. Olympic Gymnast
Dressing as an Olympic gymnast this Halloween is sure to win you some costume contest gold. Take a tip from the Final Five this year and break out your favorite bodysuit. Scrunchie not included.

 David Bowie costume

4. David Bowie
This next costume idea is for the makeup enthusiast. David Bowie had some of the most recognizable face paint in the business, so put that electric eyeshadow to good use. Don’t forget to tease your hair into a faux mullet and you have yourself a costume for the decades.

Margot Tenenbaum costume

5. Margot Tenenbaum from The Royal Tenenbaums
I’ll take any excuse to break out my LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection Faux-Fur Coat! This Margot Tenenbaum costume has to be easiest and most recognizable outfit out of the bunch. Be sure to have a movie marathon with The Royal Tenenbaums beforehand to get you into character.
