We are now about a week out from the Halloween weekend, which means two straight nights of party, puking and smudged makeup for some, and stress and heartbreak for others who procrastinated and can't figure out what to be for the increasingly ridiculous holiday.

BOO!: Top Ten Totally Lame Last-Minute Halloween Costumes

SCARY!: Top Five: Lame Halloween Costumes

OOKY!: Awesomely Lame Halloween Costumes You Can Make At Home

The Houston Press has been helping you with last-minute costumes for what seems like a decade, or at least the better part of the last one. Each year around this time, you will find Press employees walking the halls in makeup and barely-there costumes on the way to a photo shoot in the corner. Some are lucky to be wearing more clothes than others.

And some of us get turned into memes. Ahem. I never thought all that blue would ever come off.

Here is our annual Rogie's Gallery of last-minute Halloween costume ideas. Of course, we use the words "idea" and "last minute" extremely loosely.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
