Still looking for the perfect Halloween costume? Don't fret! Hollywood Crush is here to help!

So before you resort to cutting eye holes in your favorite sheets, check out our suggestions for awesome Halloween get-ups!
The second season of "Jersey Shore" may be over, but with Halloween just six days away, the real fun is about to begin. You don't have to be a genuine guidette to get your GTL on this weekend—follow Hollywood Crush's instructions for total Snookification and you'll out-pouf the pickle queen herself!
Step one: Tan. Tan. More tan. It’s already October, which means any semblance of your summer tan has probably vanished. Snooki would never, ever be caught dead with skin any shade lighter than orange. Try Jergens Natural Glow Medium to Tan Skin Tones Express Body Moisturizer ($9 at drugstores), then bronze your face like it’s nobody’s business.
Step two: Short and sweet. The formula for the perfect Snookers ensemble? Cleavage + short hemline – modesty – restraint + garish = Snookalicious. Think deep v-necklines, mini skirts, animal prints, lace, cutouts, and anything one size too small. Didn't your mother always tell you that less is more?
Step three: Pouf. Snooki would not be Snooki without her signature 'do: the pouf. You can always simplify things by purchasing a Snooki wig ($18). If you want to be more adventurous, give Bumpits a try, or go completely rogue and style the pouf yourself by teasing strands with a fine comb. Remember to use lots of hairspray to keep it all in place! I'm a big fan of Garnier Fructis Style Full Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray ($4 at drugstores).
Step four: Accessorize. Complete your Snooki getup with giant hoop earrings ($7.80 at Forever 21), super-high heels to add to your less-than-5-foot frame ($140 at Steve Madden), lots of smoky eye shadow (Stila, $20 at Sephora) and pale lips (L’Oreal Paris, $10 at drugstores). When it comes to accessorizing, forget what your momma said. More is more!
Step five: Juicehead. Now that you’re tanned, skankified, poufy and blinged-out, you're just missing the final Snooki essential: man candy! Preferably of the Italian, six-pack abs, shellacked hair variety, but any boyfriend—or boy friend—who's willing to get his GTL on for the night will do.
