Short on time and inspiration? Weve got you covered. Literally.

The bad news: Halloween is on a Monday this year. Oy.

The good news: You can make the most of your Monday Halloween by dressing up on the job!


We know you're busy, so we've put together a gallery of animal-inspired costumes that need only two (really!) items.

Cat ears + pieces of paper = Copy cat

Imitation is the sincerest form of cattery … or something like that.

Bunny ears + broom = Dust bunny

This one has us sweeping with joy.


Umbrella + pictures of dogs and cats = Raining cats and dogs

There's a 100% chance you'll be showered with praise for wearing this ensemble.


Robe + stuffed cats = Crazy cat lady

If you are a crazy cat lady in real life, this does not count as a costume. No cheating.


Dog ears + thermometer = Sick as a dog

Have you always wanted to be an ailing Akita or a nauseated Newfie? Pounce on this opportunity.
