5 Insanely “Convenient” Halloween Costumes

|

Eek! Do you need a last-minute Halloween costume? No worries! We’ve got you covered. Check out these super-easy and fun costumes where you can purchase what you need to complete the look at your gas station’s convenience store!

CHIP ON YOUR SHOULDER

Buy a bag of chips, tape it to your shoulder and voilà…your costume is complete. This is the simplest costume aside from going as “yourself” which we don’t recommend! Show a little effort!

BREADWINNER

Be the main source of support for your neighborhood as you give out candy. Put on some athletic gear, grab your racing medals (or you could easily create a DIY medal with some paper, markers, scissors and a ribbon) and swing by your gas station’s convenience store for a loaf of bread. Crossing the finish line has never been more fun!

CANDY WRAPPER

Yo! Convenience stores are stocked with candy (and sunglasses) making this a super-easy costume to create. Just find some clothes and hat that make you feel like a rapper and adhere a bunch of candy bars to your costume with duct tape.

NETFLIX and CHILL

Movies at convenience stores are very affordable so this can be a low-cost approach to Halloween and, as a bonus, you’ll have movies to watch later! We grabbed a Chill Zone beverage from Cumberland Farms but you can also buy a bag of ice to carry around if there isn’t a Cumberland Farms near you.

SUGAR MAMA

This is probably not the Sugar Mama you were thinking of but that is why we love it! Pick up a bag of sugar and place it in a baby wrap or a baby carrier. You can stick sugar on your face and arms for optimal effect. Powdered is best. Spritz some water on your face and it’ll stick perfectly.
