Easy & Last Minute Costumes Ideas in 2024

We’ve all been there: you told yourself you would get your outfit ready with plenty of time to spare but now the costume party is tomorrow and you have no idea what to wear.

That’s what these costume guides are all about. Quick and easy DIY costume ideas that you can make at home last minute and on a budget. With only a few everyday items and a couple of selective cosplay accessories, we can transform your dress-up nightmare into a cosplayer’s dream!

Easy Costume Ideas for Guys

Ah men, what are we like? Always leaving things until the last minute. There is no bigger crime than showing up to a Halloween or costume party wearing a football jersey or carrying a baseball bat because that was all we could put together in the eleventh hour. We are on a mission to put an end to all that here and now! With our super funny and easy costume ideas for men, you can still have one of the best DIY outfits in the room, no matter how much time you have to prepare. Sure, you might have muddled the whole look together only 20 minutes earlier but we won’t tell if you don’t.

Many of our most popular DIY male costumes are also the easiest to make at home. The best example is our South Park outfit roundup. Kenny, Cartman, Kyle, and Stan costumes can all be homemade with as few as 5 (mostly every day) accessories. With fan-favorite recurring characters such as Mr. Hankey and Towelie also included, this is a great group costume idea too.

The Simpsons and Spongebob Squarepants are two more beloved TV shows that are just stuffed with easy and cute costume ideas for men and women. From a classic Marge and Homer couples outfit to more unusual cosplays such as Dennis from the original Spongebob movie, this is the place to be for hardcore fans.

For Fantasy fans, our Game of Thrones ‘House Stark’ costumes are all designed to require 5 accessories or less and still make a measurably better impression than the final season. Or for the ultimate quick and easy costume idea, how about Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead? How many of us have a generic sherrif outfit gathering dust somewhere? Add some pazazz with his iconic jacket and a splash of zombie guts. Job done!

Easy Costume Ideas for Women

We have hundreds of cheap and easy costume ideas for women to suit any occasion. From mainstream TV shows and movie characters to more innovative and unique outfits, we’ve got your back ladies!

Get your girlfriends together with our cute and gender-bending DIY collections. Scooby Doo costumes are always among our most popular and we have guides for the entire cast. Of course, Velma and Daphne are staples but we also have female costume versions for Fred, Shaggy, and Scooby! There’s no better excuse to get all your best girlfriends together for the ultimate group costume. Not easy enough? There are few outfits as simple as our Three Blind Mice from Shrek or the Green Aliens from Toy Story. Perfect, for when you’re rolling with the whole squad.

We appreciate that a costume party is the perfect excuse to dress down and let your seductive side shine. While – of course – pushing the boundaries of what you can get away with as far as possible. That’s why our sexy costume ideas are made to put you on center-stage. Check out our Halloween outfit guides if you dare: Sexy Patrick Bateman, Beetlejuice, Ghostface, and Pennywise are some of our favorites. All are super easy costume characters to make at home and guaranteed to have you looking your very cutest. 

Even if you have no time, our super easy costume guides will save the day and have you looking your best.
