Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

From websites and magazines to movies and tv, I'm seeing costume ideas everywhere I turn. I've also helped create some awesome costumes at the vintage store where I work. This year, I decided to be a Pan Am stewardess. I mean, I kind of already dress like a sixties stewardess most of the time so it's not much of a stretch. I recently picked up a Pan Am bag and now I just need a hat to pull it all together. I might make one out of construction paper or felt. If anyone has any on-the-fly hat making tips though, let me know! 

I've had some fun costumes over the years. I thought I'd share some from the past, as well as inspiration of the year. Last year, I was Joan from Mad Men. I sort of have this hair color now so it's funny to see how real the wig looks! For details on how I put my Joan look together head back to my first entry almost a year ago!
Here I am in 2009 as Minnie Mouse. This was my back up costume for this year. 
At one point in high school I was Ringo Starr. 
At another point, I was a dark-haired Margot Tenenbaum with a friend as Ritchie. Eventually I re-did this costume in an awesome blonde wig though. Another year, I was Max Fischer, which was kind of hilarious. I guess I was pretty into Wes Anderson in high school.
