No doubt you’re aware, but the most exciting holiday of the year (HALLOWEEN!) is one week away. And whether you have an intricate costume planned or you’re anticipating a last-minute scramble, there are going to be some fun times ahead.

This also serves as a solid reminder to brush your teeth after all that candy.

Hopefully this has given you some suitably silly wardrobe inspo, because the whole point of Halloween is to have a great time in weird clothes (while eating lots of candy, obvi). And remember, you don’t have to splurge on a full-on costume, sometimes it’s even more fun to go DIY with a costume or accessory.

Whatever you choose, just make sure there’s an element of spook factor. As we’ve seen in the above examples, even a sandwich can be a little eerie.

Here’s a little ditty to enjoy while you’re testing outfits.

Happiest of Halloweens to you.
