With trick-or-treating time only two days away, you might be desperate enough to try one of Ellen's last-minute Halloween costume ideas.
Careful not to oversell them, she explains: "I'm not saying they're clever. I'm not even saying they're good. I'm just saying that they're last-minute ideas that you can put together for your children." But her pop-culture inspired getups -- like "Daft Pumpkin" and "The Walking Dead" (Grateful Dead T-shirt required) -- earn points for pure resourcefulness in our book.
