If you still don’t know what you or your kids are going to be/wear for Halloween, here are 26 easy, breezy ideas from A to Z—just in the stitch of time.
A simple base for starting these and many other costumes is to use tights or leggings and a long sleeved t-shirt in appropriate colors-- i.e.use a purple base for the bunch of balloon grapes.
B. Blackhawk Player
D. Doctor, just a stethoscope and a white coat should do the trick, OR with a little more effort, Darth Vader
E. Elsa from Frozen or the Easter Bunny complete with Easter Basket to be used for collecting Halloween Treats
F. Frankenstein or a Firefighter
G. Ghost--just a white sheet and a black marker and you're good to go--oh wait, make sure you cut out eyes, nose and mouth...
OR with a little more work and a lot of balloons you (or your dog) can be a Bunch of Grapes
H. Hobo--a retro blast from the past or Hello Kitty (who turns 40 this month)
I. iphone--you're on your own on this one

R. Rat or Ratatouille
S. Satan or Snow White
T. Tightrope Walker--just don't try this between skyscrapers
