Here are our Quick Fix Halloween Costumes Based on Movies

Because sometimes the best laid plans are last minute ones.

We all have the best intentions when it comes to Halloween: to organise our costumes early, and to either look like massive babes or look absolutely god damn hilarious. But, sometimes life intervenes and we find ourselves – like today – running around on our lunch break, picking up a wig and a couple of accessories from the dollar store around the corner that has hardly anything left, and going as a ghost or something. You're in the same boat, right?

Well never fear! Our fashion director Elle Packham is here to make your afternoon scarily (sorry not sorry) relaxing. She's scoured through some of our favourite horror, thriller and action films to find iconic characters whose costumes are dead (again, totally unapologetic about my terrible Halloween puns) easy to achieve.

Wanna be the toughest bitch on the block? Go buy a military boiler suit – and pick up a cat from somewhere – and get really sweaty, and bam! You're Sigourney Weaver in Alien. Want to do a group thing? How about each grabbing a white t-shirt, a little kilt, some knee-high socks and rosary beads and evoking The four corners Craft. Speaking of Robin Tunney, don't even have time to pick up a costume? Get home, shave your head and you're ready to roll as Debra in Empire Records and have everyone declare: "Sinead O'Rebellion: shock me, shock me, shock me, with that deviant behaviour". Finally, if you have Dax Wax – and a super car – at home, turn your luscious locks into dread locks and you're MEGA babe Angelina Jolie in Gone in Sixty Seconds. TOLD you that we had you sorted. You're welcome.
