Whether you like it or not, Halloween is in full swing and you're going to need a costume if you plan on going out this weekend. Some people spend all year planning the ultimate themed getup, but if you were too busy living your life to think about that until now and are lacking inspiration, it's best to go back to basics. See how easy yet still embodying the full holiday spirit can be with classic characters from childhood.

Wearing only a Spirit Hoods animal hat doesn't count as a costume so just go with the full-blown Care Bear or something.

Alice, The Queen, and Mad Hatter still need a Cheshire Cat and White Rabbit!

Meeeeowww. Baby animals are always a safe bet. Did he have to go to Long Island for that leopard vest?!

'Sup, Waldo?

Minnie Mouse is a great option because you can still be a cute Disney character and make it really slutty if you don't want to miss out on the opportunity this fine Holiday presents.

Wonder Woman and her zombie friend? Sure, why not.

Old school Tim Burton and Johnny Depp bring back fond childhood memories. And when was last time you actually ate a Cheeto?!
