With Halloween around the corner, you can find inspiration for last-minute, cheap and hassle-free costumes from some of our favourite movie and television characters.
Here are our top 10 favourite no-fuss Halloween costumes, as seen on television:
1. Picasso’s Blue Period
In the Star Wars-obsessed Fanboys, Zoe shows art can be the best (and easiest) Halloween costume, with her interpretation of Picasso’s Blue Period. All you need is blue dye and tampons.
2. Law suit
In the classic Philadelphia, lawyer Joe Miller fastened to what he knows. He stuck laws and bills onto his suit, becoming the ultimate law suit.
Creepy Creed from The Office might not have planned this blood-splattered “costume”, but it worked out pretty well.
4. White trash
In Celeste and Jesse Forever, Celeste goes to a party wearing a white trash bag and introduces herself as white trash, reflecting her down-in-the-dumps mood. Cheap, quick and effective.
5. Blown away weatherman
Laid-back Bobby decides to keep it effortless as a blown away weatherman in Cougar Town.
6. Three hole punch
Jim Halpert from The Office set the bar for no-fuss witty Halloween costumes. This is his homage to everyone’s favourite office supply item, the three hole punch.
A Halloween costume doesn’t get easier than this. Oz, the chilled out rocker from Buffy the Vampire Slayer complements his zen, all-knowing personality by going as God to Willow’s Joan of Arc. And if you don’t believe him, just check his nametag.
8. Facebook/Book face
Another Halpert winner – Facebook or Book face. Very easy to execute.
9. Ring girl
After a slight misunderstanding about costume genres, Annie from Community dressed up as the girl from The Ring. All you need is dirty hair and beige cloth.
10. Cereal killer
In Celeste and Jesse Forever, Paul dresses up as a cereal killer without much trouble. Awesome pun intended. All you need is a box of cereal and a knife or two.
