Last-minute Halloween costumes

In a pinch to find a Halloween ensemble? Here are three ideas that take minimal effort and cash.

Not everyone wants to dress like a slut on Halloween.

In college, it’s expected that most girls will dress up as some variation of cat, cop, witch or any current pop culture reference that allows them to wear the least amount of clothes. In October.

In Syracuse, the common sight is half naked girls (and guys) strutting the streets shivering and shuffling to the next party just to warm up. Guys and girls: if you’re searching for a last minute costume, here are some options that will save your dignity and keep your body temperature up.

The adorkable girl next door

 Zooey Deschanel’s hipster persona — both on TV and in real life — is quite possibly the perfect last minute Halloween ensemble. And there’s a good chance you have everything you need already in your closet. If not, head to a thrift store or an Urban Outfitters.

What you’ll need:

1. Polka dot dress

2. Hipster glasses

3. Bangs

4. Girly flats (preferably with a bow)

5. Colorful tights

6. Headband

Workout Paul Ryan

 It just wouldn’t be Halloween without an ironic political costume. Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s workout routine has been the source of as many discussions as his views on abortion. Make your costume extra clear if you can get your hands on a Romney Ryan 2012 poster.

What you’ll need:

1. Grey t-shirt

2. Gym shorts

3. Sneakers

4. Red baseball cap (worn backwards)

5. Dumbbells

Kate and Pippa Middleton

Couple up with a girlfriend to dress up as Britain’s most popular sisters. Their look is pretty simple: prim and proper dress and a crazy head accessory. Head to the craft store to buy a glue gun and all the tulle and flowers you can handle.

What you’ll need:

1. Wrap dress

2. Nude pumps

3. Perfect hair

4. Headpiece
