So, if you dropped the ball on Halloween this year or just haven’t had time or the money to wrangle everyone up and take them to the costume store, this post is for you! Or, if the Halloween stores in your town are anything like mine, they closed on October 24th! Panic mode – what kind of Halloween store closes the week before Halloween? There aren’t many other places that will provide the variety that most kids need when they are searching for a costume. Here are some cheap, easy, quick, and unique last minute costume ideas if you’re in a pinch!
