TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

In less than 48 hours, trick or treaters will be walking around in their best costumes.  There is still time to buy one or even make a costume.

There are a number of shops in Tucson where one can get a last minute costume, or if people would rather be creative, make their own.

According to Parade.com the top five ‘simple and easy' costumes for those do-it-yourselfers are:

  1. Duck dynasty – dress up like a character from the show, head to a sporting goods store and pick up some camouflage.
  2. Breaking Bad – get a yellow hazmat suit, goggles and blue gloves
  3. Turn to a local thrift shop.
  4. Be a favorite superhero
  5. Don't over think the costume, get a trench coat and fedora and be a private eye or detective.

Have you ever done a ‘do-it-yourself' costume?  Tucson News Now would love to hear about it and see it.  Head to the Tucson News Now facebook page and post a photo and a short description on how you did it. Download a photo here - http://bit.ly/1cl9KKf.

    Dozens came from as far as Flagstaff to Nogales in honor of the thousands of children waiting to be reunited with their parents. They may have been a small group, but they had a big message. "We want to make sure that those kids still get back to their families," said Christie Black, who traveled from Mesa for the vigil. Black and Julie Jorgenson never met in person until Saturday.
