Create The Perfect Costume In 60 Seconds

Calling all procrastinators, this one's for you. If you waited 'til the last second to figure out your Halloween costume and all the holiday stores are cleaned out, don't stress. You do not have to be a zombie nurse for the third year in a row. We're here to show you how to make up a costume with just your everyday wardrobe and a little creativity.
With our makeup partner-in-crime, Maybelline, we launched a new video series called Style Throwdown, where senior style editor Annie Georgia Greenberg challenges a guest to make a complete look in less than 60 seconds. This week, she takes on editorial assistant Samantha Yu. The two go tête-à-tête to assemble their best Halloween getups from the rack behind them — and the results are hilarious. Hit play above for some fast and furious costuming that will inspire you to dig deep into your own closet this Halloween season. That last-ditch ghost costume doesn't stand a chance.
