Somehow we’ve already passed the midpoint of October, which means every second that goes by is one you’ve lost in planning your Halloween costume. You could always whip out a long black dress, some opera gloves and bouffant your hair up for a trusty Holly Golightly. But if you’re looking for a costume that’s a little more dramatic and you have some prep time, I’ve collected ten great YouTube tutorials for your edification and enjoyment. 

The tutorials range from the family friendly to the rated R for gore, so there’s a little something here for everyone’s tastes and ability levels. And share photos if you decide to try any of the tips collected below.
