“All dressed up with no where to go” may be the mood this Halloween, but we’re dressing up, regardless.

Still brainstorming the perfect easy-peasy Halloween costume? Not to worry – our ever so creative team of SwearBy editors are sharing all of their secrets. From easy last-minute costumes to must-have accessories for any and all costumes, these products will leave you ghoulish or glowing (depending on the mood you’re going for, obviously).

Modern Women Famous Witches 3.0 Shirt

“Halloween is, undoubtedly, my favorite holiday. And while I do put a lot of thought into my costumes each year, I’m also all for a random October morning that calls for a spooky season-themed T-shirt. This design is one of my year-round favorites and I love wearing it around Halloween, too.” –Jayla Andrulonis

Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow

“I’m the queen of last-minute Halloween costumes, which means I usually need to compensate for my thrown together outfit with more exciting makeup. Whether I’m a cat, pirate, or witch, this glitter liquid eyeshadow is my go-to for a more exaggerated smoky eye. It’s highly pigmented, dries quickly, and stays put throughout the night so I don’t have to worry about smudging or running — I can just focus on the party.” –Stephanie Perry 

Women's Dog in Pumpkin Halloween Crew Socks

“To be honest, I’ve never really been a big Halloween person. It’s not that I don’t enjoy pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating, but I’m just often too busy to find time to plan a costume. So, when I get invited to the occasional Halloween party, I’ll pull on these adorable puppy pumpkin socks as a last-minute effort. These socks, printed with my favorite dog breeds including corgis and French bulldogs, are so cute that I’ll even wear them past October 31. They’re my go-tos when I want to carry some spooky cheer, without the fuss.” –Nina Huang

Handmade Breakfast at Tiffany's Sleep Mask Tassel Ear Plugs Set

“I’ve had this sleep mask and earring set inspired by one of Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic looks in Breakfast at Tiffany’s for years. If I’m ever at a loss for a Halloween custom, I slip the eye mask on my forehead, put on the earrings (a more practical version of Holly Golightly’s ear plugs), and throw on an oversized white button-down shirt. This handmade set makes the classic look affordable and easy to pull off.” – Christie Calucchia

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick

“As far as last minute Halloween accessories, there’s nothing quite as simple yet effective as black lipstick. October is probably the only time of the year I feel comfortable (and spooky) enough to wear as bold of a color, but I find applying the dark shade so fun whenever I’m in need of something in a pinch! Plus, this formula happens to be one of the best.” – Maya Gandara

990 Piece Set of Self Adhesive Pearl Stickers

“Euphoria was iconic for many reasons, including the costume design and incredible makeup that played such a big role they were basically characters. And while the makeup was over-the-top, it’s actually surprisingly easy to re-create at home with glitter eyeshadow and these self-adhesive pearls from Amazon. I use them all the time and people always comment how I look like I could be a character on the show. For that reason, they’re the perfect Halloween costume basic since all you have to do is cover your eyelids in them to resemble almost every character on the show.” –Tara Gonzalez 

Hue Women's Super Opaque Tights

“Not a Halloween goes by where I’m not scrambling for a last-minute costume. Thankfully, my favorite black tights always come in clutch. From my stint as Wednesday Adams to a night as a black cat, these tights have kept me warm and comfortable. I love the high waistband with its control top, as well as how well-made the fabric is. Three years and no rips!” –Katie Macdonald
