Halloween has been called the fashion holiday and I agree. As my friends well know, Halloween is actually my Christmas. I know not everyone feels that way, so I wanted to offer some last minute Halloween inspiration. If you’re the only one without a costume, don’t worry. Here are a few last minute suggestions that you can find around your house, or at one desperate trip to your closest thrift shop.
I’m speaking exclusively to women here, so you guys are going to have to fend for yourselves. Something tells me you’re just going to go as “Gangnam Style” star PSY or Ryan Lochte though, so you hardly need my help. (*I heard tin foil can double for a mean American Flag-themed grill though, just saying).
It’s my ladies I’m concerned about. I’m trying to help you avoid the predictable “sexy-anything” Halloween curse that can often be scarier than anything else you’ll find during All Hallows’ Eve. I’m offering some easy-to-create Halloween costumes that pay tribute to some of our most beloved femme fatales and all around cool chicks. I promise to have you turning heads, but not in that weird nip-slip kind of way.
Wednesday from The Addams Family (or any witch)
What you’ll need: black clothing, a black wig, a bad attitude.
Honey Boo Boo (or any Toddler in a Tiara)
What you’ll need: princess dress, insane ambition, crazy makeup and a Momager
Cher (or any random hippie)
What you’ll need: flared pants, long brunette wig, a vest, a guy named Sonny.
Heather (or any schoolgirl/mean girl)
What you’ll need: pleated skirt, dress shirt/sweater, school books, 1990’s Christian Slater
Warning: if you turn up the heat with this one you’re Britney Spears in Crazy so be careful, unless that’s what you’re going for.
Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction
What you’ll need: a black bob, white shirt, black pants, a great bra for that great Intracardiac injection heroin scene.
Nancy from Sid and Nancy (or any grungy rock and role couple doomed to fail)
What you’ll need: skirt and top, ripped tights, leather jacket, a bad boyfriend
Edie Sedgwick (or any Mod girl)
What you’ll need: black tights, dramatic 60’s makeup, chandelier earring and Andy Warhol
Jessica Biel Timberlake (or any celebrity bride)
What you’ll need: an over the top poofy pink dress, a frozen camera smile, an over the top photo bombing fiancé in a tux.
