With Halloween fast approaching, I’m sure you’re trying to think of what costume to do (as am I).
To help with this process, I thought I would share a few of my past costumes!
Pirate: Yes, I’ve had two tries at this but both were different! You basically just need some sort of scarf/bandana, belt, leather, stripes or a puffy white shirt/dress, and gold, vintage-looking jewelry. Other pirate accessories optional.
Nerd: This one is pretty easy, just get some Wayfarer-style glasses, a button-down, stuff the pocket with colored pens, get some suspenders, non-denim shorts, and either oxfords or tennis shoes.
“Little Town” Belle from Beauty & the Beast: Depending on which version you want to be (live action or animated) the shoes can turn to flats instead of combat boots but as for the rest: blue dress, white long sleeve, white bow or white apron on top, and a book!
“Baby One More Time” Britney Spears: Here’s proof you don’t need to be blonde for this one (plus her hair is darker in this music video anyway, right? 😉). Grab two different colored pink bows, a white button-down (see a pattern here?), a grey cropped cardigan, black mini skirt, and pink knee-high socks to complete the look!
Farmer’s Daughter/Cowgirl: If you haven’t done this costume before, here’s a quick way to do so: plaid shirt/flannel, daisy dukes/jean shorts, and cowgirl boots – freckles and bandana optional.
Chanel Oberlin from Scream Queens: Though this show has since been canceled, it’s still a fab choice for Halloween. Just grab a fur vest or coat, TONS of accessories, and some makeshift KKT letters.
Lemonade Beyoncé: Again, maybe a little less relevant this year but still a fab (and easy) costume choice for Bey fans! All you need is a black dress, black wide-brimmed hat, and a few blinged out necklaces.
Sulley from Monsters Inc.: This one’s one of my favorites – nostalgia, am I right? I used white pipe cleaners and twisted them around a thin headband to make the horns, did purple makeup for the nose and lips, and grabbed a big blue shirt and put purple pom poms on it for his polka dots. Bonus: my friends were Mike & Book, each with a big shirt (pink and green) and Mike’s shirt had his eye on it!
Now here are two new ones for this year: both last minute so you can definitely do these!
Lilo with Stitch: Since the big t-shirt worked so well with Sully, why not try another Disney character! All you need is a big red shirt, some felt or paper for the palm leaves, and maybe a stuffed Stitch if you have him…or make your SO or friend be him 😉
The Roaring 20s: Probably the most out of the box of the bunch…and it got a ton of compliments! Just grab a couple sparkly numbers (or make them with sparkly paper/fabric, a new year’s eve headband, and anything 20s or Gatsby-esque.
See you in the next post and happy early Halloween!
