Affordable, last minute costumes that requires minimal effort.
Halloween weekend has approached us quickly, and many are still trying to think of clever costumes to wear. Well think no more! We came up with our favorite, easy costumes that you can find at home.
To create this look, throw on a pair of old jeans, tease your hair, find your comfiest flannel shirt and WALAH, you’re a scarecrow. To spice up your look, use some eyeliner to add scarecrow-like markings on your face. You also can’t go wrong with a pop of color on the lip.
Too busy to buy werewolf ears? No problem! Try wearing your hair half up, half down. By splitting the top section in two, you can make two buns and pin them to your head. You’ll need some black eyeliner and brown eye shadow to create the wolf-like makeup.
White Button Down Shirt
Having a white button down top is essential to keep in your closet, and if you don’t have one, get one! You can pair this outfit with anything including black shorts, spandex, leggings, or pajama shorts. Finish the costume with some tall socks, tennis shoes, and a pair of your favorite sunglasses. No need to get too technical on this one, it’s simple, fun, and cute!
Mia Wallace (Pulp Fiction)
First step is to watch the movie. If you haven’t already, watch it, it’s a classic. After seeing it, you will want nothing more than to be Mia Wallace for Halloween. All you will need to do is pin-up your hair up in a short bob, create a smoky eye, add some red lips, and you’re ready for the night.
Layer your white button down shirt under a black dress and you will instantly transform into Wednesday Adams. Braiding your hair in pigtails and wearing eerie makeup can complete this costume. For a more ‘tired’ look, add some black eye shadow to the bottom creases of your eye. This will add some spook to your costume!
Sandra Dee (Grease)
Cleary Gigi Hadid as Sandra Dee is going to be hard to top, but having a leather jacket is the first step to getting on her level. All you need is black leggings, a black top (crop or regular), high heels, and of course your leather jacket. Instead of buying a wig, try curling your hair in small sections and then pin it up by layer. Don’t forget that fire truck-red lipstick!
Cat woman is a pretty sassy character, but we can make it chill by wearing a leather jacket instead of a leather body suit. Adding makeup is going to be key to this outfit. You can either have a simple cat-like look, or you can add a black mask to make your costume more mysterious.
Black and White Stripe Shirt
The robber costume is the perfect go-to for a chilly Halloween night. You will need to start breaking out your winter clothes by taking out your gloves and beanies. If you don’t want to buy a mask, create your own! Find an old black shirt that you don’t want, and cut it to make the perfect robber mask.
No need to have the gloves or burette, especially if you have good face painting skills. White face makeup can run very cheap, but if you have sensitive skin, just make your normal makeup more dramatic. You can even add designs by using black liquid eyeliner.

THE DAILY SENTINEL – It was literally a crowning moment for 21-year-old Lauren Roush of New Haven Sunday, as she was chosen Miss West Virginia USA 2017.
With approximately 45 close family members, friends and sorority sisters in the crowd cheering her on, they watched throughout the two-day pageant in Morgantown as Roush was named to the top ten, final five, and was finally crowned.
Roush described the winning moment as an “out of body experience.”
“I remember falling to my knees, and then feeling very loved and supported as fellow contestants surrounded me, helping me up and congratulating me,” Roush said. “I remember pointing up, giving all the glory to God, and looking out at my family. It was all so surreal.”
Roush and other contestants competed in three categories – interview, swimsuit and evening gown. Once she was named to the top five, those contestants were given on-stage questions. Roush said hers was concerning social media and how she would use her account as Miss West Virginia USA. Her background had prepared her to easily answer. Roush speaks to middle school girls in a program she created, and told the judges and audience she would use the account to promote female empowerment.
After being crowned, Roush said it was a whirlwind of activities. She and the winner of the Miss West Virginia Teen USA pageant, Olivia Hutchinson of Huntington, were taken into a meeting with the pageant owners. The royalty, along with their parents, signed contracts and were given information about the year ahead. Then there were photo shoots with the pageant owners, former royalty, family members and other officials.
Roush said she and Hutchinson were placed in a motel room for the night, and spent Monday in photo shoots both together and separately. One of her first official events will be Sunday, when she attends the Miss Indiana USA pageant.
