If you’re reading this, it means you probably have once again waited until the last-minute to think of a Halloween costume. Fear not! There is still time to piece together the perfect costume, with minimal effort (and a little help from us). These ideas are quick, simple and can be completed with a quick trip to your local Lids and a little rummaging in your closet. So stop stressing, and let us do the work for you.
9 Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas
1. Fantasy Football
With your favorite NFL jersey, some fairy wings, a wand and BOOM- you’ve got a pun-tastic costume. If you’re a Seahawks die-hard- we think the 12th fan jersey really puts the FAN in Fantasy Football and makes this costume one of our faves.
2. Tom Brady
Dressing up like the 5-time Super Bowl Champ should be super easy if you’re a Patriots fan. Grab a Patriots Tom Brady Jersey, a Patriots Knit, and a football (inflated to any size) and just like that you’re Tom Brady. Finding a Gisele to complete the costume is up to you!
3. Bill Belichick
What to look like one of that greatest (or infamous) football minds of all time? All you need for Bill Belichick is a Patriots hoodie with the sleeves chopped off, a headset and a strong scowl. Grab a friend, because #3 on our list could easily be paired with #2 for the ultimate Brady/Belichick Patriots fan costume.
4. Jay Z
We get it, Halloween isn’t everyone’s favorite holiday. But, if you’re looking for the ultimate low-key Halloween look and you have a New York Yankees hat and a white tee, then you can probably pull off this costume. If a friend asks who you are, sell it with a good amount of swagger and maybe know a few of his songs?
A blank hat and our Lids Custom Zone + your creativity is all you need to make a last minute costume. We put a jack-o-lantern face on an orange blank hat to create this easy pumpkin costume. Choose this or many other spooky styles from our catalog of Halloween designs and you can have a custom hat just in time for Trick-or-Treating. Find your nearest Lids store that offers customization.
6. Ice Cube
We know the iconic Ice Cube has a lot of looks, but we’re fans of this retro script Raiders hat, so throw on some Raiders gear and maybe a gold chain and you’ve got an authentic looking Ice Cube costume. You’re welcome.
7. Thing 1 & Thing 2
Here’s another easy costume that you can create with help from Lids Custom Zone! You and another procrastinating friend can transform into the famous mischievous duo with a customized hat and a red sweater! This is perfect if you and a friend are looking for a quick couples costume! Bonus points if you can find and team up with a cat wearing a red and white striped stovepipe hat.
8. Movie Jersey Hookup
We’ve made the Halloween costume search easy for you this year with replica jerseys from your favorite movies and TV shows. From the Mighty Ducks to Hoosiers, we’ve got the last minute costume needs covered. Find all our cinema inspired digs here.
9. “This is my costume”
If the ideas you saw above are just too much work, or maybe you feel you’re too cool for Halloween, you can still stay in the spirit of the holiday and quiet the haters with a snarky “This is my costume” dad hat. People may think of you as a total bummer, but hey, you’re only going to the parties for the free candy.
