Halloween is fast approaching—how is it already next week?!—and if you haven’t had time to put together a costume, take a deep breath, we’re here to help. We all struggle with the same, age-old conundrum right around this time, when you realize Halloween is a week away and you don’t have time to put together an elaborate look.
