Halloween is almost here! Do you have your costume ready? Whether you’re hosting a Halloween party in our new apartments in Tulsa, OK, or you’re trick-or-treating in the area, now is the time to put your costume together, if you haven’t already! Luckily, if you’re not already prepared, there are plenty of costumes you can throw together last minute with just what you’ve got lying around at our luxury apartments in Tulsa. This post is here to outline just a few for our residents who need the inspiration! Let’s get started, shall we?

Cat Out of the Bag

Cat costumes are popular for Halloween, and not just because black cats are spooky and cute. Any cat costume is pretty easy—just grab some cat ears, or make some yourself out of a headband and some construction paper or felt cut into rounded triangles. Then draw some whiskers on your face with a bit of makeup or even magic marker in a pinch (just make sure it’s not permanent marker).

To make this a punny “cat out of the bag” costume, just tape a paper bag to your shirt and you’re good to go.

Iron Chef

If you’ve got an apron or a chef’s hat, you can throw together an Iron Chef costume. There are two easy ways to go about this. This first is to bring a clothes’ iron with you (we recommend strapping it to a cord or belt of some kind so you don’t have to hold it in your hands all evening). The second is to simply cut out the letters “Fe” (the atomic symbol for iron) and affix them to your costume. For bonus points, add a spatula, wooden spoon, oven mitts, or other kitchen tools you’ve got lying around your luxury apartments in Tulsa.

Ghost

Ghost costumes are ubiquitous for a reason! All you need is a white sheet, tablecloth, or other fabric you’re willing to cut some holes into, or that’s thin enough to see through already. We recommend also using a belt of some kind just to keep the sheet where you want it, otherwise, you’ll be adjusting the fabric all night long.

If you prefer, you can also easily turn your ghost costume into a punny ghostwriter costume by bringing a notepad and pen with you. What could be easier?

Chip On Your Shoulder

You may have noticed that many of the costumes on this list revolve around puns, and this one’s no exception. Literally, all you need for this costume is a bag of chips and something to stick it to your shoulder with, like a large rubber band or some duct tape. And as a bonus, you’ve got a built-in snack if you get hungry. Perfection.

Smart Cookie

If you’ve ever graduated from somewhere and you’ve still got that graduation gown taking up space in your closet, you’ve got the foundation of a super simple Halloween costume. You could simply throw on that cap and gown and be a graduate for Halloween, or print out a picture of a cookie and tape it to your chest—voilà, you’re one smart cookie.

That’s it for our last-minute Halloween costumes! Hopefully one of these is perfect for you.
