Calling all procrastinators: These are the best Halloween costumes you can print

calling procrastinators best halloween costumes can print star wars all

To say we didn’t give you any warning would be a lie – at this point, you’ve had ample time to come up with a costume and we’ve done our fair share of reminding you. But being that today is October 31 and your procrastinating ways have caught up with you, it’s time for a last-ditch disguise.

Luckily, the Internet giveth (and taketh away … but in this case, it just giveth). All you need for these costumes is an Internet connection, some string or ribbon, a printer, scissors, and a guilt-free conscience (because for some of these, you’re about to waste a lot of paper). No more excuses, friend.

Cutesy eye masks

Celebrity faces

dk maskIn 2007, Forbes made its own masks for the year’s “most frightening people.” So, sure, you’re a little outdated, but beggars can’t be choosers. Also, any homage to Dennis Kucinich is timeless.

Star Wars characters

darth maskStar Wars has made some fairly intricate masks of Darth Vader, Yoda, an ewok (which I’m going to go out on a limb and say is Wicket because he’s my favorite), Leia, Admiral Akbar, and many more characters available for download. You can bank on these being recognizable. 

Orphan Black

Animal masks

red panda maskCanon has a slew of printable masks in its online Paper Crafts catalog, but the real stunners are the bear and moose disguises. Honorable mention goes to the red panda mask, because red pandas are adorable. This Women’s Day post also features some great animal mask downloads. Might I recommend the panda?

Grumpy Cat

Princess Kate

Disney characters

disney masksWhat if you’re going with a group, or want to throw together a last minute couples costume? Well first of all, this is a seriously procrastinated effort, and second of all, Etsy again has you covered. One creator has a bevy of Disney couple and group masks for you to choose from. It’s worth mentioning the same designer offers Hello Kitty masks

Ron Swanson

Full costumes

cutoutsIf you forgot to get your kid a costume (shame on you!) or are a diminutive person (no shame – I wore a child’s Boba Fett costume for three years in a row … including last year), then Cutout Costumes has you covered. You can print out these get-ups in full and decorate yourself in paper.

Kanye West

kanye masksHuffington Post has given the world this Kanye print-out mask, and we cannot thank them enough for it. Well done.


bane maskVulture found a designer’s orgami-mask homage to The Dark Knight Rises, which you can reappropriate – the best and most preservable option being Bane. Yeah, the movie came out last year, but Bane’s a bad guy (arguably – I don’t want to have that fight here … let’s move that to Reddit) and that’s always popular Halloween fodder.

Orange is the New Black 

oitnb masksBuzzfeed has graced the Internet with these Orange is the New Black character masks, and they are eerily accurate. 

Weeping Angel

angel maskCheezburger has you covered if you want to go creepy – a la this Weeping Angel mask

Andrew Luck
