Last-minute Halloween costumes don't have to be completely lazy. Just work what you've already got in your closet, nail down a character or person, and rock it like you've been plotting the idea for months. Here are 15 ideas to get you started.

Archer 


Pull out your go-to dark suit, a white collared shirt, a tie, and a tie bar.

Bansky Painting 


Wear a backwards hat, a black hoodie, a bandana across your face, and carry around a bouquet of flowers. Maybe don't throw them at anyone. 

Barry


Double down on a T-shirt under a henley, your favorite pair of cargo pants (we know you still have them), and pair with black gloves. Skip the gun for blindingly obvious reasons. 

Sleazy Justin Bieber 


Sleazy Justin Bieber is a lot, but he's honestly fun to replicate. You get to wear a sweatpants and a hoodie! Just hike up the pants, wear high socks, and break out your chunkiest sneaker for quick success.  

Sleazy Pete Davidson

Or, channel sleazy Pete. A Thrasher tee, Adidas track pants, and socks and sandals are all it takes.

Post Malone 


Throw that hair up into a bun and go to town with a Sharpie. 

Paddington 


Grab a bear ears headband and a floppy hat. Maybe add a camel shearling coat if you're really going for it. 

Pre-Queer Eye-d Guy 


Take an old T-shirt and write this exact phrase on it. The people will know. 

A Character from Fortnite 

Cargo pants and armor. Bonus if you have a (fake) sword around.

Vampire Jack Dorsey 


Fake a standing collar by ironing a collar up. Pair with vampire teeth, blood, and a social platform that's rapidly descending into a (sometimes very entertaining) hellscape. 

Walmart Yodeling Kid 


Get some use out of that bow tie you've only worn once, and learn how to yodel. Or not. 

Weed-Smoking Elon Musk 


Some headphones and a joint—the ultimate last-minute move.
