Preparing for this Halloween thing can be kind of overwhelming, depending how "into" the holiday you are. On one end of the spectrum, you have committed types who live for concocting pop culture-referential or cleverly punny DIY costumes (cuz pre-packaged ones are for amateurs). And on the other end, you have the more passive participants who prefer last-minute all-black or super easy "sexy cat/witch/nurse" options. (Or, wait, you could just go all '90s.) Well, if you fall into the latter category, maybe consider these easy costume solutions that are both festive and low-effort for October 31-and totally cool to wear the other 364 days of the year.
