Believe it or not, some people don’t like dressing up for Halloween. In fact, quite a lot of people just aren’t into the whole costume scene. They enjoy the excuse for eating candy, the Halloween bar loops and the parties, but couldn’t care less about Halloween costumes.
Unfortunately for these folks, they are often forced into going to Halloween parties by well-meaning spouses, friends, roommates and/or co-workers. These well-intentioned interlopers operate under the misguided assumption that those eschewing costumes just haven’t been to the right party/pub crawl/haunted house. Nothing could be further from the truth. Since childhood, the anti-costume folks have been drug to these outings and thought growing into adulthood meant they could give up the totally ridiculous pastime of dressing up. The best-laid plans often fail though.
If you are someone who just doesn’t get what all the fuss is about, but you’ve got 7 Halloween parties to attend, try out these Halloween costumes for those who don’t do costumes. Most of these can be put together in the last minute from stuff you already have on hand because we know you don’t want to waste any more time or resources than you already have to.
