Halloween, everyone's favorite holiday is just around the corner and like every year, there are two kinds of people: those who have been preparing their costumes months in advance and have every little detail double checked. And then there are the ones who always wait until the last minute - you know who you are. This year, we've got you covered:

1. SIMS CHARACTER

The Sims have been around for what feels like an eternity and the little green symbol above their heads are universally recognizable. Get yourself some cardboard and a headband and you're good to go.

2. ERROR MESSAGE

This one is as simple as it is funny. As long as you have a white shirt and some black marker you're Halloween is saved.

3. WILSON FROM HOME IMPROVEMENT

Nobody ever saw his face but we all loved him. Tim Allen's wise neighbor Wilson. Get yourself a bunch of popsickle sticks, a fishing hat and your costume is done.

4. COPY CAT

Anything is fair game in the world of cheesy puns. Cat ears and a sign around your neck are enough to transform you into a copy cat.

5. A FORMAL APOLOGY

    • An old recital dress + printer paper + sharpie = formal apology.

6. IRON CHEF

This one's amazing on two levels. Kitchen lovers and chemistry buffs alike will appreciate your nerdy humor. Find an old apron and head outside.
