In order to have a truly epic Halloween costume, you must be inventive, resourceful, and sneaky — because, no one can know you waited until the very last second to put it together. Morticia Addams is an obvious choice (hi, black maxi dress in your closet). Though, why not take the path less-traveled as Lana Kane from Archer, with that white turtleneck dress you've yet to don this season?
Half of the battle is finding a character that's both recognizable and easy to imitate; the other is doing so on a budget. All you really need are three key items to dress as your favorite cartoons — and we found six examples you can whip up in a flash. Tug at your nostalgic heartstrings as an animated Lizzie McGuire, or save the day in your underpants as Quailman. The clock is ticking, but these costumes are so worth that express shipping.
