It’s time to start putting our heads together and coming up with Halloween costume ideas before it’s too late! There’s nothing more irritating than waiting until the last second to come up with something and then looking like a half-baked Cookie Monster. Luckily, our televisions can provide all the inspiration we need to come up with easy yet spectacular-looking costumes. You can go sexy, funny, or scary — whatever floats your boat! It doesn’t have to be an impossible search, either. You needn’t look further than your friendly neighborhood mall to put together a fairly accurate and fun TV character-inspired costume!

Check these ideas out!
