If you're in the middle of a move, you probably don't have a lot of time to spend on an elaborate Halloween costume. Don't let that stop you from celebrating in style.  Take advantage of something you probably have a lot of – moving boxes!  Here are suggestions for last minute-costume ideas using boxes.

1. Voting booth

Some red, white and blue paint and you're set to celebrate Halloween – and democracy.  Add an Uncle Sam stars-and-stripes top hat and you're good to  go.

2. A perfect pair

Black and white construction paper  or paint can turn a couple of boxes into a pair of die, ideal for couples or siblings heading out for Halloween.

3. Get corny

Decorate a box as an old-school, red-and-white striped popcorn container and  attach crumpled yellow tissue paper as the popcorn.  Don't forget to make  a corny crown.

4. Hit the block(s)

Dressing as a family  of Legos is easy using rectangular moving boxes, paint and paper cups  for the knobs that stick out. Top it off with a small, matching box on  your head.

5. Robot

Silver spray paint can turn a  cardboard box into a shiny metallic torso. Visit Home Depot for the  silver accordion tubes that vent the air from clothes dryers to cover  your arms and legs (or add extra appendages).  Accessorize with tin foil.

6. Best vintage

Enlarge a copy of your favorite boxed wine label and slap it on a moving box.  You can even add a spout that dispenses real wine.

7. Real estate agent

Cut up a box to make a collection of "SOLD" signs, make sure your phone  headset is securely fastened to respond to clients around the clock and  you're ready to head out as a RE/MAX agent!
