But I always put off buying materials for my costume or take the time to put an appropriate one together and then, before I know it, it's the night before Halloween and I'm scrounging through my house to see what I could put together.

Well, if you turn to the internet and want some last-minute Halloween costume ideas, there are plenty of good ones for you to steal. And if you're somewhat of a cosmetics fiend, well, you might want to check out this pixellated makeup trend that basically turns you into a real life video game character.
