Love the Tardis dress.

As a massive Doctor Who fan I love the Tardis dress, I would defiantly wear that, Halloween or everyday (such a geek, don't judge me). I do wish Halloween was a bit more of a bigger deal here in the UK though.

Those don't look like last minute hand made things to me. I'm not even sure if you are telling people they can order these at the "last minute", by which you mean at least 2 days in advance for shipping... or if you think the typical person who makes their own would have the right things on hand and can whip these together based on a few photos at the last minute.

A last minute hand-made costume is a "how to" for turning stuff in your closet or old linens in things like: hobo, pirate, mummy, Roman, femme fatale, etc, with nothing more complicated than accessories available at every drugstore in October.
