This is the comfiest and best last-minute Halloween costume for those who love being comfy. Embrace your lazy-self by wearing your pajamas on Halloween. This  DIY costume can actually go three ways. One, you can be an actual sleeping beauty. Wear your favorite cute pajamas, but do a full face of makeup with your hair done. On the other hand, you can simply be a kid in pajamas. This allows for more fun options, especially those feetie pajamas you’re dying to wear out. Put your hair in pigtails and grab a stuffed animal, and you have everything you need. As a last resort, if your feetie pajamas happen to already be a cartoon character or animal, simply wear it and go as that!

Try to find a brown sunhat or straw hat laying around, and pop that right on your head. So you don’t get mistaken for a farmer or cowgirl, apply simple stitch makeup to your face. You probably won’t get to scare anyone, but at least you now have a costume!
