Camp Counselor

A simple costume that you can always keep in your back pocket is a camp counselor. Throw on a tie-dye shirt, a pair of khaki shorts, and your most comfortable pair of sneakers, and you’re all set. Step it up your game with a pair of binoculars that you can throw around your neck, and you’ll look ready to head out on a great camping trip.

Never been to summer camp? No worries. Another quick and easy costume that involves a pair of khaki pants is a zookeeper. All you’ll need to add to those khakis is a green shirt. Though a button-down shirt might look more professional, a t-shirt will do the trick, if you’re in a pinch. If you don’t think that’s going to be enough, pick up a magnetized stuffed animal that will sit on your shoulder so everyone knows you’re the cool zookeeper that all the animals like.

In a pinch? Pick up an orange shirt and a black fabric marker. Simply draw a jack-o-lantern face on your orange shirt, and voilà.  It’ll work great in a pinch.

Grab your favorite flannel and beanie and you’re pretty much done, if you choose to dress up as a lumberjack. Assuming it’s too late to grow a beard, you can always buy one, or just use face paint or eyeliner.

Shark Attack

It’s definitely not beach season, but for this last-minute costume idea, you’re going to break out the bathing suit just one more time. But wait, what’s that in the water? It’s coming right towards you . . . it’s a shark! (Okay, so maybe it’s just a shark sock, which is something you’ll need on one of your hands  to complete this costume.) Add your favorite beach accessories like sunglasses and a hat, and you’re ready to hit the party.
