Halloween is a favorite holiday for people all across the country, from little kids who get to run from house to house collecting candy, to adults who use Halloween parties as an excuse to express their inner kid and dress up in funny costumes.

However, now that All Hallows Eve is only a few days away, many people are scrambling to put together last minute costumes for parties and trick or treating.
