I know the Bebe costumes from the other day were a bit pricey, so I surfed Forever 21 to find some cheaper last-minute options.
If you were inspired by Jim’s Three Hole Punch Paper costume from The Office, here’s another (low maintenance) paper-related costume.
Paper in a shredder. An even easier costume than Jim’s since you don’t have to find a way to get construction paper to stick to your shirt. Seriously, this is a step above the “Hi My Name is ___” sticker in terms of costume difficulty.
Loved the bear costume from yesterday but can’t afford it? Here’s a great alternative.
This coat would be perfect for a Sexy Chinchilla costume. Why a chinchilla costume, you may ask? Because chinchillas are awesome. They take dust baths and can jump really high. Plus, they’re made of soft. The only downside to this costume is the risk of strangers trying to pet you and/or use you as a chinchillow (a chinchilla pillow).
Feeling antisocial this year? Are you being forced to go to a party with a bunch of people you don’t like?
Stop by Forever 21 and get your very own People Shooting Hat. Feel free to stand in a corner all night mumbling about how the party is full of phonies.
It’s a little predictable given the popularity of Glee, but if you’re looking for a last-minute Rachel Berry costume you need to go to Forever 21 asap.
I can’t think of a more Rachel outfit than a high waist full skirt and a prim button down. The only way it could be more Rachel is if the top had a giant bow on it and you could also buy a tall doofy boyfriend and two really supportive gay dads.
If you have a lot of big beaded necklaces, dangly earrings, big rings, and tons of bangles, this is a costume that can incorporate all your accessories. No, really. This costume will require all of them.
Layer these tops over the leggings. Yes, I am suggesting you wear leggings as pants. If you have a brightly patterned scarf, throw that on. Then put on all your jewelry. Congratulations – you’re Vanessa Abrams. I suggest you spend your entire night judging people for being elitist. If you’re at the same party as Holden Caulfield up there, go to his/her corner immediately to find a kindred spirit. You can both talk about the plight of the ducks in Central Park.
If you do not have rings on at least seven fingers and bracelets up to your elbows, you do not have enough jewelry for this costume.
