4. High Speed Internet

Last Minute DIY Costumes from Your Closet (High Speed Internet) | ThePrettyRelaxed.comThis costume makes people think you’re active, but you’re really just active at advocating your love for fast loading YouTube videos and Facebook feeds. Fake it till you make it, is what I always say.

What you’ll need:

• athletic top or t-shirt
• running shorts or pants
• running shoes
Google Chrome logo (printed/taped)
• water bottle (go CamelBak!), optional
fitness tracker or watch, optional

Additional Costume Idea: Chrome is my choice of browser, but if you’re more of a Firefox type of person, by all means fire up that fox! Meaning use that logo instead, if that wasn’t clear…

5. 2010-ish Justin Bieber

Last Minute DIY Costumes from Your Closet (Bieber) | ThePrettyRelaxed.comYou’re gonna need the Bieber cut for this one. But if you have long hair like me, just tie it up and pin it forward, securing it in your beanie. I may look more like a Kpop boyband member than Justin, but hopefully I still exude his boyish charm?

What you’ll need:

• white trimmed hoodie
• gray t-shirt
• dark jeans
• beanie
• oversized bball shoes
• watch, optional

Additional Costume Idea: This is a throwback to Bieber’s “Baby” days when his pal Ludacris revealed his first love was at 13… but if you’re looking for a 2015 JB costume, throw on an unbuttoned plaid shirt and hold a white piece of paper that says ‘Sorry’ (aka my new favorite jam). Or ‘What Do You Mean?’ whichever is your new favorite jam. Boom, done.
