How easy are we talking?  You can always go the all black clothes, ears and a tail cat look.

Otherwise, I’ve been pippi longstocking before.. just overalls (back in the day when they were “in style”) and wires in your braids.  Or black clothes, cape and witch hat… Or a cowgirl, or a doctor/nurse if you have easy access to a pair of scrubs.  That sounds comfy…

My mom had a card costume – ace of spades or something. Two white towels sewn at the top and sides with a neck hole and armholes and then black A’s and spade shapes cut out of felt and sewed on. You could glue them though.

i once was  a bag of jellybeans. you buy a pack of water balloons and a giant clear plastic bag. maybe it was several packs of balloons. anyway it was very cute and cheap, under ten bucks but really a lot of work.

I’m making a giant tulle skirt (like a kid’s tutu, but longer), and I bought a witches hat from Target for $2.50. Voila! Witch and it only cost me about 10 bucks!

You can buy an accessory and then wear clothes you already own. For example, you could buy some fairy/butterfly wings and just wear a cute dress that matches the color of the wings, maybe pair it with some tights and braid your hair. Or, buy a witch hat and wear a black dress (or black shirt w/ pants or skirt). Carry around a broom, which you probably already own!

a deviled egg – devil ears headband, white shirt with a yellow circle in the middle, white or black pants

hermione or other harry potter character is pretty easy- striped red tie, white dress short or collared shirt, grey sweater, black pants or black shirt, bonus points if you make a wand or get a robe (black graduation gown will do)

black shirt/sweatshirt and pants plus yellow ducktape for stripes = bee

I’ve gone as a christmas tree (green sheet with garland glued on, then hang decorations), Candyland game (white sheet with felt squares glued on), and stick figure (white sweatshirt and pants with black tape to make it look like a stick figure).

You can wear a big black garbage bag and glue giant paper eyes to it- a la the California Raisins

I was an artist one year, I just wore black leggings, and oversized button down shirt, a beret,  and carried a paint palatte I made out of cardboard.

I was a lion tamer once – using comfortable, work-like clothes: white blouse with safari scarf and khaki pants tucked in boots.  I wanted a safari hat but couldn’t find one.  Oh, and I carried around a stuffed lion!

Someone from the 80’s. You can always go through your older clothes and alter them to make them more 80’s. Plus a lot of stuff that’s in now has an 80’s vibe to it. (ie skinny jeans, leggings, oversized sweaters)

PS make sure you have some pretty fantastic 80’s hair do! lol always a fun thing to do
