If you're going out tonight and severely procrastinated on planning your costume, you can probably muster one up out of items you already own. Costume ideas after the jump:

Glitzy top, leggings, ankle booties, fake blood or ketchup: fashion victim.

Fur hunter’s hat, flour on face and other exposed skin, a stuffed toy dog (or a real one): Iditarod musher.

Tweed jacket, scarf as ascot, pipe: absent-minded professor.

Princess-collar dress, wide-brimmed hat: Madeline in Paris.

Little black dress, updo: Holly Golightly.

Watchman’s cap, plaid shirt, log of wood: Paul Bunyan.

Shorts, T-shirt, visor, fanny pack, Crocs: Ugly American tourist.

All-white outfit with mismatched mittens, beer cans, potato chip bags pinned to it: Chicago snowdrift (hat tip to Lauren Viera).

Polka-dot scarf, denim or chambray shirt: Rosie the Riveter.
