      Little details make a big difference - Small, creative touches can take your outfit from average to awesome in a matter of seconds. It could just be a tattoo or actual ivy leaves for your Poison Ivy costume (non-poisonous of course). https://au.pinterest.com/pin/361413938824078591/

      Use what you have - Simple ideas are often the best. When we reach for something too complicated we can become unstuck. Look for things around the house that can inspire you or what you already have in your wardrobe and go from there…

      Make life easy and buy one - When the party has been sprung upon you (or life just happened) and you need a last-minute costume idea, simplicity and ease are definitely the way to go. Buy a ready-made costume as a base and then use accessories to bring your idea to life.

      Don't forget your friends - Choose an idea that works with you and your companions. I.e. if you have a young baby try to find a costume that works with them. How about a baby burrito or a oompa loompa? https://au.pinterest.com/pin/527061962631392832/
