Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

A few last-minute costume ideas that are so good, it’s almost scary. The bonus of shopping for your custom costume kit at SWELL? Your kit will end up in your closet, not the costume box.

Rig an elastic headband to a metal funnel (or spray paint a plastic one silver) and add it to your metallic base. Luckily, lamé is going to be a big trend this Holiday season, so you’ll get a new party dress and costume in one. Top with an axe.

DIY: Mason Jar Koozie

diy-mason-jar-koozie
The positive of using a mason jar as a mug: you can add a lid and boom, to-go cup. The negative: zero molten hot liquid to metacarpal protection. The solution: no, it’s not going out and buying a gadget to add a handle to your jar (put your money towards something better, say, a new pair of winter boots).  Our solution: a fresh pair of socks. Rather, a single sock. Start with a clean one. Maybe one who has lost its partner. Better yet, a fresh pair. Best yet, this palm tree pair from Stance. Clip off the bottom of the sock, or fold the excess under for a less permanent solution.
