Last Minute Halloween Costume {Roundup}

When I was a kid, my Dad was WAY into Halloween Costumes. It was sort of a creative process around our house. He would brainstorm with my sister and I to come up with something different and unique. I remember my mom staying up LATE the night before Halloween sewing my sisters costume together. That's what people did...they thought of something fun and MADE or pieced together a costume. 
Throughout my childhood I was Charlie Chaplan, PT Barnum's Bearded Lady (Dad had a tough sell on that one, but I did it)..that was the same year my sister was Martha Washington and before her notorious turn at Smurfette. 

Halloween is Friday.
Still looking for a quick costume? 
No problem, chances are you may have what's required in your closet. 
Check out these cool and easy, throw together ideas, that will keep the fun IN and the stress OUT of Halloween this year! 
{My costume is one of these, btw :) }

I love a good play-on-words costume.
One year, a LONG time ago,  I wore my favorite cocktail dress , which happened to be a vintage blue velvet number, to a Halloween party in Philly.
I wore a rubber chicken on a gold silk cord around my neck as a necklace. 
I was Chicken Cord on Bleu.
