A play on "It's Raining Men" is particularly perfect if you're newly single.
If you waited until the day before Halloween to pick a costume, fear not. There's still time to assemble the perfect look. These ideas are simple, inexpensive and quick to DIY — the perfect combo. (Need something for the kids too? We've got you covered.)
Who doesn't love a good play on words? And if you have kids, you can dress 'em up as adorable baby bees to go trick or treating.
Retro Flight Attendant
Got a solid shift dress in your closet? You're only a couple accessories and a sharp cat eye away from a '60s stewardess costume.
Bob Ross and a Happy Little Tree
While this couple costume may look complicated, it's surprisingly simple and is super cheap to make — and very on trend since The Joy of Painting is now on Netflix. Bonus: If you have a little critter of your own, you can dress him or her up as Bob's squirrel Peapod.
Here's a cheap thrill: The only thing you need to buy for this Sia costume is her signature two-toned wig. You can get it on Amazon for less than $10, then wear whatever black and white ensemble you have at home. Bonus points if you get a friend to dress up as Maddie Ziegler.
Spaghetti and Parmesan
Celebrate your love of pasta with this anything-but-cheesy costume. Get a green jersey dress and glue on the parmesan label, then use pom-poms and yarn for your spaghetti sweater. Top with a colander and pasta "hair" — we recommend angel hair.
You can use leftover Harry Potter glasses from past costumes, monkey animal ears, and a yellow pullover sweater to recreate everyone's favorite cartoon aardvark. Plus, you'll score major cool points with all the teens in your neighborhood for this relevant costume.
Elaine Benes from Seinfeld
Grab your favorite floral dress (ideally a tiny print), a blazer and your most awkward dance moves, and this '90s icon is instantly recognizable. Don't have the outfit or the curly brown hair? Believe it or not, there are now readymade Elaine costumes ($31, walmart.com).
Dancing Girl Emojis
Dressing up as emojis has become a big costume trend for Halloween, and the simplest way to do it is to use clothing you already own. A black shirt and black shorts make up the clothing portion of this dancing girl emoji pair, while black card stock attached to headbands serves as bunny ears.
Pink Shirt Girl Emoji
If you're not up for even that level of effort, just find a pink shirt. Then strike a few familiar emoji girl poses every time someone asks what you are. Bonus points if you bring a pair of scissors to recreate this favorite.
You don't need a giant self-grown beard to dress up as these mountain men — all this costume requires is a pair of sunglasses, a headband, and a tolerance for yarn going in your mouth.
One of the year's hottest Halloween costumes is surprisingly simple — and you can even dress up your little one to match!

Wilma and Fred

If you forgot to buy a costume, look no further than this easy Instagram cutout — social media is the ultimate inspiration source, after all. Just make the battery a little more charged than this DIY-er did — that 37% is stressing us out!
If you wore a dark midi skirt and blazer with a white button-down, it might not look like much of a costume; add a red ribbon around the neck, however, and you're clearly Mary Poppins.
Whether you copy last Sunday's puzzle or come up with your own (impressive!), this costume is as clever as it is easy to create.
50 Shades of Grey
This hilariously G-rated version of 50 Shades of Grey takes the title literally. Simply layer as many different gray items of clothing and accessories you have in your closet.
Rosie the Riveter
Nothing says "girl power" quite like Rosie the Riveter. The best part of this costume: you probably already have the jeans and denim shirt, so you're more than halfway there.
What you'll need: red and white polka dot bandana headband ($8, amazon.com)
Tulle, tulle and more tulle is the bulk of what you'll need to create this funky loofah costume. A pearl string and a cute little rubber ducky "hat" complete the look.

This classic DIY costume never goes out of style. Plus, you can get really ironic and drink wine exclusively all night!
