Halloween Costumes from Your Closet

There's nothing—nothing!—worse than a trip to the costume store the week before Halloween.

Battling rabid shoppers and scouring picked-over goods (what, you didn't want to be a slutty nurse, sized child's medium?) only leads to dropping $60 on something you'll never wear again. And, sigh, you could've bought a pair of jeans for that amount of cash .

But maybe there is something worse. Like having no costume at all, which, karmically enough, is often the exact consequence of bypassing the Halloween retail madhouse.

Except this year. We're determined to avoid both dismal fates, simply by doing something we do very, very often: shopping our closet.

Hence the below costumes, comprised entirely of pieces lurking in many closets already (no crafting involved, promise!). All you need to do is unearth them, then consider your Halloween costume done and done.
