10 Last-Minute Halloween Costumes You Can Make With A Sharpie (Photos)


Halloween is tonight, and if you haven’t picked out your costume, you’re basically screwed.

Based on my experience trying to track down a Frank Serpico costume late last night, you’re going to wait a minimum of 30 minutes to get into any store that sells anything remotely related to costumes, meaning that you’re probably going to have to think outside of the box a bit if you don’t want to be a Halloween Grinch (but not an actual Halloween Grinch. That costume is far too involved).

However, if you can manage to track down a black Sharpie some time during the day, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll be able to get enough material together to make a costume that says “I didn’t really feel like dressing up, but at least I tried.”

Some of these are a bit more involved than others, but you should be able to find something if you’re desperate.

A 404 Error


This is probably the most “that guy” costume you can wear, but it’s better than going as nothing.



Hopefully, people will be so impressed with your optimism they don’t realize you barely put any effort in.

Black-Eyed Peas


Either the band or the vegetable. It’s really your call.

Booze Light Beer


If for some reason you don’t have a spare Buzz Lightyear costume in your house, this probably won’t be practical, but if you do, there’s really nothing else you’re allowed to be.


You can tell people you’re actually going as Jim from “The Office,” but everybody knows the truth.

The state of Wyoming


I made this three minutes using Photoshop, but I doubt it’s that hard to do in real life.

The state of Colorado


You might be thinking “Isn’t the the same picture?” and the answer is “Yes.” It still counts as its own costume. The accessory is optional.

Shia LaBeouf


You technically need a tuxedo if you want to be super accurate, but as long as you have a paper bag on your head and some fairly presentable clothing, people should get what you’re going for. If you want to have a “2014 costume” without any real work, this is easily your best bet.

A nudist on strike


You’re not to going win Best Costume with this because it’s barely a costume at all. But it’s something, and that’s really all that matters.

The Gingerbread Man


This made an appearance on the list of pun-related costumes from a couple of days ago, but it’s one of my favorite pictures on the Internet and I’m not going to let an opportunity to use it go to waste.

You need red hair and a bunch of bread to make it work, so while it’s probably the most involved costume on the list, I think it’s worth the extra effort.

Every Halloween This One-Legged Guy Makes A Halloween Costume. He Just Revealed His Newest Idea

Josh Sundquist was diagnosed with cancer when he was nine years old, and was told he had a 50% chance of surviving. He lost his left leg, despite chemotherapy, but by thirteen he was cancer-free, and by sixteen, he was ski-racing. Now, Sundquist is a motivational speaker that’s become famous on social media for his clever, amputation-incorporating Halloween costumes.

“I’ve always dealt with the social discomfort of my disability by having a sense of humor,” Sundquist explains. “But now I’m more comfortable with who I am and what I look like, and I guess with these Halloween costumes you could even say that I celebrate what makes me different. Which may be either weird or refreshing, depending on your perspective.” He explains the inspiration for his costumes below:
