The next item up for migration is a title on making Mardi Gras costumes on the quick. Of course, if you needed a simple Halloween costume quickly, any of these could serve that purpose as well.
Read on to find out how to make up a quick costume at the last minute, even if you don't actually have the time to make something from scratch, or the budget to shop at a thrift store. All it really takes to come up with something suitable is a little ingenuity while you shop your own closet.
