Last Minute DIY Halloween Costumes – From Zulily

Disclosure: This post brought to you by Zulily.

Halloween is only one week away…but have no fear because last-minute costume ideas are here. Online retailer zulily has compiled some fun and quick women’s DIY costume ideas, sure to bring uniqueness to any ghoulish or ghostly bash!

Sarah Ward, zulily’s Lead Editorial Stylist (bio below), has compiled some of her favorite costume ideas, utilizing items straight from you or your friend’s closets, to save both time and money during this busy time of year.

Deer: A faux fur vest with a neutral colored outfit make the best staples. To complete the look, add an antler headband created from foliage in your backyard or with artificial flowers.

Rosie the Riveter: A chambray shirt and jeans are all you need! To finish the look, just add a red bandana in your hair and top it off with some powerful red lips.

Sushi: An all-white outfit is the foundation for your “rice.” Tie a pink/orange ‘sashimi’ pillow with a simple black scarf around your waist. Add some green and pink flowers to your hair as “ginger” and “wasabi” and voila!
