We have mad appreciation for the people who've had their 8-person Halloween group costume meticulously planned out since July, but that's really not us. So when we were trying to come up with some costume ideas this week, we asked ourselves what would be cheap, timely, and easy to make.

If you need a last-minute Halloween costume that feels very Chicago, you've come to the right place. We present 11 relatively quick to pull off Halloween costumes that we're hoping will earn you at least a little street cred around your neighborhood block.

Think of a Chicago-themed, last-minute costume idea that we missed? Let us know in the comments, please!
