There are still plenty of options available for a last-minute Halloween costume before October 31 — from fan-favorite characters like Winifred Sanderson from Hocus Pocus to Pennywise-themed dresses and more. If you, like us, waited till the last minute before Halloween to find the perfect costume — and you want something that doesn't cost an arm and a leg — then this list is for you.
All that you'll need to top off these Halloween costumes is perfect makeup, and there's so much inspiration out there for the most over-the-top beauty look.
A true classic, dressing up as a witch on Halloween doesn't have to be basic. Pair with a totally professional makeup look or hairstyle to up the ante on this costume trope. This black-and-green dress comes with a tall pointed hat to look just like the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz.
This Wednesday Addams–themed look is just like the character's dress in The Addams Family. Braid two plaits with a middle part in your hair, and put on ghostly pale makeup and add dark circles under your eyes to get the look of the pessimistic preteen.
Pennywise in It is one of the most popular costumes this Halloween, so try on this creepy clown dress. Of course, there are tons of clown-makeup inspiration out there to complete the ensemble. Plus, props can be key here; get a red balloon if you're going for a Pennywise-inspired costume.
Everyone's favorite boss witch, Winifred Sanderson of the Sanderson Sisters in Hocus Pocus, has a stunning and affordable dress option on Spirit. You'll need tons of hairspray or a wig to match the bouffant style Bette Midler sports in the film. And if you need extra inspiration, Freeform is airing Hocus Pocus as part of its 31 Nights of Halloween nearly every night this month.
Riverdale fans will recognize this look from the season one dance-off between Veronica, Betty, and Cheryl Blossom. The cute cheerleader uniform looks just like the Vixens' on the show. Pair with a bright red lip or a super-high ponytail.
A creepy-cool look, this jumpsuit would be easy to throw on and make a statement at any Halloween party. There are multiple styles on Amazon, including a floral skeleton and a celestial one. It's not as size-inclusive as other options on this list, though, and only goes up to a size XL.
In plus or standard sizes, this jersey dress is a comfy-cute option for the scary holiday. Looking for something easy to throw on while trick-or-treating or going to a haunted house? This spider web dress is it. Dress up with artsy tights or a creative makeup look.
Dress up as any kind of butterfly you can imagine in one of these butterfly wing capes — there are tons more styles on Amazon, including peacock wings. This costume can be dressed up to the extreme or worn on its own depending how creative you're feeling this year. Pair with a simple black dress and let the wings soar.
Another easy costume that makes a statement, this flamingo rider costume is surprisingly affordable. All you'll need to complete this ensemble is a bright pink tank to match the flamingo beneath you, or dress up as a zookeeper who could be wrangling the escaped bird.
