This post is all about last minute college Halloween costumes.
BEST LAST MINUTE COLLEGE HALLOWEEN COSTUMES:
1. Power Puff Girls
This mummy costume is one of the easiest last minute college Halloween costumes. Either use white athletic wrap or even toilet paper to wrap yourself up like a mummy. You can really design this costume yourself and make it fit any way you want!
If you want the wrap to look a little more spooky and used you can brush on some dark makeup powder or eyeshadow.
3. Angel And Devil
Angel and devil costumes are a classic for Halloween parties. Both of these costumes can be put together fairly fast and easily if you have a party store near by. Before buying, make sure to ask around because there is a good chance one of your friends already has wigs or horns.
I love the idea of adding a red wig for the devil costume! This makes it really cute and a little more original. You can either order a wig form Amazon or look for one at the party store.
4. Football Players
You most likely have a football jersey in your closet somewhere so this costume would be so easy to put together last minute. Add some black face paint and matching tennis shoes to complete the look.
Even if you are afraid of clowns this "It" costume is really cute. Put together a white shirt with a red tutu and some clown makeup. If you really want to make the costume great you can carry around a balloon. Everyone will get the reference I promise.
6. Velma And Shaggy
Scooby Doo characters are always a great last minute college Halloween costume idea because you can wear stuff right from your closet that matches the same color clothes the characters wear. If you have a group of friends it would be really fun to dress up as the whole gang.
Firefighter costumes are super easy to put together last minute but still look great! If you want to make this costume a little more "college" you could wear a white tank or crop top and black shorts paired with suspenders.
It would also be cute to have a friend dress up as a Dalmatian!
8. Euphoria Theme
Euphoria is one of the biggest shows this year so it only makes sense to recreate a bomb Euphoria outfit. And, the best part is that a great Euphoria costume can be put together without a ton of effort.
There are tons of Euphoria makeup ideas on Pinterest but really all you need is glitter and bright colors. As far as the outfit goes, anything bright or neon will do. Let your makeup be the focus of the costume!
9. Risky Business
Risky business might be the easiest last minute college costume to put together because literally all you need is some socks, sunglasses, and a long sleeve button up.
If you don't have a button up already ask a guy friend because they will most definitely have one you can borrow.
10. Four Loko
I feel like everyone has that one bad experience story from a night they drank Four Lokos but the drink aesthetic is totally there. These camo pants are pretty trendy right now so there is a good chance you or someone you know has them sitting in their closet.
Now, all you have to do is pair your bright camo pants with a Four Loko t-shirt and you have a costume that will bring back that Four Loko experience without the hangover the next morning.
11. Alvin And The Chipmunks
Alvin and the Chipmunks is a perfect Halloween costume theme to do with a group of three friends. If you don't have time to order the actual chipmunks shirts you could always pick up green, red, and blue t-shirts from Walmart and cut out the letter with construction paper.
If you want to put together a last minute 80's themed costume together all you need is neon clothing and some scrunchies! Check you local thrift store for cute windbreakers to make the outfit!
Recreate this last minute college Halloween costume:
Hippies is a classic outfit you could put together in no time. Everyone has a DIY tie dye t-shirt somewhere so all you will need is a flower crown to go with it!
If you are good at makeup this skeleton costume is the way to go. All you need to wear is black clothing, so you don't need to buy a costume, and then let the makeup shine!
I am pretty sure a cat costume is the go-to last minute costume. But, nonetheless it looks really cute every time. Wear all black and paint on some whiskers and a nose for a Halloween costume that will only take minutes to put together!
16. Glow In The Dark Masks
If you can get your hands on a glow mask for the night you really don't need much else! You could wear all black or add a bloody white shirt like the girls above to add a little extra Halloween feel.
Even if you can't find a mask for the night you could wear the same costume and DIY some scary makeup.
17. Space Cowgirl
Space cowgirl is a huge costume right now and it looks super cute. Really wearing anything sparkly or metallic works for this. Add a cute cowboy hat and your'e good to go!

Bratz are super iconic and this costume is great if you need one last minute. Pastel colored clothing makes up the outfit. If you have time, iron on the Bratz logo onto a tube top or t-shirt to make sure everyone knows what you are!
19. Three Blind Mice
All you need for this last minute costume idea is a few accessories that you can buy easily from Amazon or the party store. Grab your two besties and recreate this costume this year!
20. Music Festival
I absolutely love these sparkly costumes! This outfit gives me major music festival vibes and I love it. Throw a sparkly cowboy hat over it and call it "space cowgirl."
You could also design your cowboy hats to have different alcohol logos on it and color coordinate your outfits to be a group of your favorite drinks!
21. White Claws
22. Ski Lodge
This last minute Halloween costume is perfect if your Halloween nights that are a little colder. Ski lodge is a super cute and colorful costume that you probably already have laying around.
This will keep you warm all night but the layers will also allow you to shed off a few which is great if you're going to be inside at a crowded bar or house.
23. School Girls
If you wore a uniform in high school you pretty much already have this costume in the bag. This school girl costume is a classic college Halloween costume that looks hot every time.
24. Baseball Players
This baseball player costume is really simple to put together but still looks really cute! I love how the girl on the right tied her baseball jersey! Pair some striped high socks and maybe even carry around a bat to complete the look.
25. The Incredibles
The Incredibles is a classic movie and a super cute Halloween costume to recreate. If you have the time to buy the full body costume, that's great! But, if you are in a pinch for time, this costume is just as cute!
Put together a red skirt or leggings and pair it with an Incredibles shirt. If you can't get your hands on a shirt with the Incredibles logo you can just buy iron on transfer paper for dark fabrics and iron it on in no time.
How fun is this DIY popcorn costume?! I have never seen food look so good as clothing! You could also easily DIY the popcorn headband with some construction paper or pens.
If you want to recreate this costume without ruining a shirt, you could wrap clear wrap around the top and glue the popcorn onto that. This way you can just take the clear wrap off at the end of the night and it wont ruin your top.
27. Black Angel
This black angel costume is super hot but can also be put together without needing to plan weeks in advance.
If you have time to order everything off Amazon, that's great! If not, head over to your local party or Halloween store. They always have angel wings at these stores and other accessories to make this costume really good.
28. Rock And Roll
To make a last minute rock and roll costume, all you need is some black face paint, black clothes, and maybe some fishnet tights! Someone you know is bound to have a KISS shirt or another famous band you could wear for the night!
29. Frat Composites
Talk about last minute! You can literally put this costume together the night of! This is so funny and so original - I have never seen this done before! If you can get a hold of some extra composites of your fav frat, make it into a costume and head over! Everyone will definitely love this costume.
