1. Halloween Impaired 

Need a costume? Have nothing bought or planned for? Well visit the PV Times and read the article on Emergency Costumes for the Halloween Impaired.

It’s OK Be Prepared have them for you. Visit their site for emergency supply ideas for safety, decoration and warmth. It’s a very practical guide to what you’re going to need for Halloween and there are some ideas in there that are going to save your bacon. Use emergency supplies as decorations, grab anything that glows and put your husband behind a door to moan at passing strangers.

4. Emergency Halloween costume

About.com is not my favourite place, but every now and again they hit on an idea that is worth the hideous page design and SEO spam. This is one such time. They will talk you through making an utterly simple and clever emergency Halloween outfit for your child that shouldn’t cost you much to make and you will likely have most of the bits lying around at home already.

5. Involve your pets

Fluffkins feeling left out? Wooffles is ignoring you? Involve them in your Halloween preparations and take the edge off the insanity. Let’s face it, if you can get one cute pet thing done right, people won’t notice that you are using last year’s tomato juice as the fake blood in the punch bowl.

6. Adult Emergencies Resolved

The Huffington Post, as ubiquitous as ever, has decided to show you how your Halloween costume is actually already in your closet. All I can say is that if it moves and groans, run away, it is a creature of the undead and is more likely to eat you than allow you to wear it. BOO!
