It’s already October. (What? How? I need to speak to the manager. This is an outrage!) This being October means we only have a few more weeks of procrastination before we try to slap together a last minute costume for our geeky selves.

As was our tradition last year and the year before that, we’re collecting a roundup of costumes even lazy geeks like us can make on a reasonable budget. That last picture on the second page is totally my look for this year.

When you’re done with these, you can also check out some of our other Halloween costumes:
