Somehow, summer is already over, fall is picking up steam, and it’s time to talk about Halloween (and rhyme while we’re at it). It’s hard to believe that we’re already discussing costumes, but ladies and gents, the time has arrived for planning. While we know you’ll always have a cat headband in your closet as a back-up plan (and probably some little devil horns as well) it’s always good to have some creative juices flowing to figure out a couple of other costumes that you can DIY – with a little bit of help from some makeup of course.

We’ve compiled a bit of inspiration for you, from pop art to spiders to that creepy clown thing from “Saw,” that can all be made with just a few beauty supplies. Click through the slideshow above and let us know what you’ll be rocking this Halloween – and of course which other costume ideas you have!
