A Frankenstorm Halloween: Last Minute Costumes

Homemade Halloween costume ideas from

Frankenstorm slamming into the east coast this week certainly did shake up Halloween plans for a lot of people. Some cities are canceling or postponing trick-or-treating altogether! (As a kid, this would have absolutely blown my mind, let’s be real.) So in the spirit of an atypical holiday, I rounded up a few last minute homemade Halloween costume ideas in case you didn’t get around to assembling your spookalicious attire in advance of Sandy’s arrival. Even if trick-or-treating is canceled in your area, you can whip up a costume and watch scary movies or go out to visit neighbors in your building or on your block in festive attire.
