Last week we did our best to get you in the Halloween mindset with ideas for decor and leaf peeping. We may have been a little too absorbed in getting into the spirit, because we just now realized: Halloween is but a week away! And really, the best Halloween parties are going to happen on the weekend before Halloween, which means we basically have like, two days to figure out what we're wearing this year. Luckily, we have Pinterest, the bottomless pit of constant inspiration, where ideas for Halloween costumes flow like water. We choose to forgo the expected "sexy" costume for ladies and instead go for the witty, the fun, the creative. This year we spotted all sorts of fun, quick DIY ideas. Do we want to dress up like candy, an animal, or some of our favorite inanimate objects this year? We're not telling until the party—until then, click through for our picks.
You can seriously never go wrong with the classic witch costume. This one is stylish and well, convincing.
Biggest Candy Corn Ever
If there's one type of candy that just screams Halloween, it's candy corn. This costume looks simple enough to craft but is also super cute.
No Deer-in-Headlights Here
Step away from the sexy-animal look with a realistic take on a deer, as seen here.
We always love a costume that incorporates huge, potentially dangerous 3-D elements, don't you?
This Halloween accessory idea is so classy and simple, we're a little big annoyed we didn't think of it first.
Cutest Nesting Doll
This Russian nesting doll costume is adorable on this tiny child, but will still look super-cool on an adult lady.
Cotton Candy Queen
Same for this one! A costume that completely masks your body shape is a seriously fun way to do Halloween.
Most Coveted Snow Globe
We love collecting snow globes, but it looks like there's one we're missing.

A video game character brought to life!
Halloween Is Going to the Dogs
And don't forget to dress up your pup! Seems the more miserable your canine pal looks, the funnier it is?
