Every year at the beginning of October, I start getting anxious. It's time to start thinking about Halloween costume ideas, and I never know what to be. Well, actually, I take that back... I always have some grandiose scheme of what I could be. But, when push comes to shove, I'm usually left scrambling to come up with something (anything!) at the last minute.
I figure I'm not alone in this, so I thought I'd share a few of the simple Halloween costume ideas I use in a pinch.
First up, quite possibly the easiest and most comfortable costume you'll could ever wear: a robe, slippers, and (if you're feeling adventurous) a bowl of cereal. Tell your friends that you're "a lazy person, obviously." (Because, you know, all lazy people wear robes and slippers and eat cereal all the time.)
I stole this idea from Zach's sister Kara. She and her husband Tim came dressed in this getup at our Halloween party last year. Being a self-proclaimed lazy person myself, I was instantly attracted to the low levels of effort required to put this outfit together. You can basically wear your most comfortable Saturday morning PJs and call it a costume. That's pretty perfect in my book.
