There are two people; those who plan their Halloween costume in January and those who wait until October 30th. I am one of the latter, and without fail, every year I spend the day before Halloween scrambling to put together a costume together. If you’re a fellow procrastinator, don’t worry because I’ve come up with a list of last-minute Halloween costumes inspired by my 2001 grape costume pictured above.
