Pictures of moms who take ‘hot mess’ stereotypes to the extreme make for a funniest and easy to throw together Halloween costume. If you’re looking for a last minute costume idea and have a big sense of humor, here are some ideas for how to achieve an unforgettable hot mess mom costume!
The “I woke up like this” Mom
For this hot mess mom costume, you’ll need just a few basic components to pull off the look. First, put loads of hair rollers in your hair and spray them with some hairspray so they’ll hold for a few hours. Throw on a chunky robe and slippers for that rushed morning look most of us know all too well. If you want to go an extra step further, you can wear some exaggerated makeup like a bright lip or smudged eyeshadow.
The “I can’t talk until my Starbucks” Mom
To be fair, this costume is rather relatable to all people in some way or another but caters to the stereotype of the mom who needs her daily Starbucks. This hot mess mom costume can be pulled off with a few key elements. Simple black leggings or pants, some UGG boots or slippers, and a funny t-shirt like this are the base of the costume. Twist your hair into a big messy bun and of course don’t forget the most important prop: a big Starbucks cup to carry around for the night. For an added element, carry an old Target bag to hammer in that ‘I can only run errands post coffee!’ look.
The “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere” Mom
This hot mess mom costume is for the mama who loves her happy hour! Keep it simple by pairing this funny “mama needs her wine” t-shirt with leggings or jeans. You can carry a tote or a cool macrame wine holder and have some empty wine bottles poking out. Or you could always hold a prop like this “it’s mom’s turn to wine” glass as part of the costume.
