… With pieces you’ll wear all the time!
Halloween is almost here! With all of its dressing up and spooky fun, you don’t want to miss out! But whether you’re going to work, making dinner, making your own kids’ costumes or are just busy with a crap ton of midterms (College kids, I’m looking at you); you can still take part in the festivities: costumed and as cute as can be! You may not have the time or funds to make an extravagant costume work, but you can still pull a costume together to be the belle of the ball! … Or, you know, the sexy cat woman stealing the belle’s attention.
If you are trying to find something for yourself and two friends to be, what could be more perfect than the Powerpuff Girls? All you need is a dress in your respective Powerpuff Girl color, a black belt and black flats! With that, you’ve got the perfect super hero trio costumes!
Holly Golightly. The perfect last-minute costume idea for a woman wanting to dress up and just be dapper! It’s such an easy costume to pull together… Every woman should have a little black dress anyway! The rest of the costume is either a staple (black flats, pearls and sunnies) or something you can get from your local Party City (the long cigarette filter, black gloves and tiara)!
Totally stole this Catwoman costume idea from my friend Brittany… If she weren’t in Tuscon right now, I’d share a picture of her in this costume with you because she looks so hot in it! It’s going to be such a fun costume for her, too. Honestly, if you’ve got the body; you can rock this! You may not necessarily have these pieces (Unless you’re Karly Kim and can rock leather pants on a daily basis like a BA
), but at least if you’ve got a little bit of time, you can get them and actually have a chance of wearing them again, unlike that grilled suit your boyfriend is urging you to get, so you can have a fight between a taco and a grilled cheese (prison rules, of course). Then again, I really don’t know your personal style, so if a grilled cheese suit does fit into your personal style? All the power to you.
Catwoman, the Powerpuff Girls and Holly Golightly are just a couple costumes I came up with! Of course, you could always grab an old prom dress and a tiara and say you’re a princess! Between thrifting and shopping your own closet (even your friends’ closets), I’m sure you will find a costume that will look amazing, save you money and hopefully save you a little time!
And if you’re looking for unique costume inspiration for your kids (or heck, even yourself, because I’d totally love to be Anna Wintour for Halloween), you’ve really got to check out these Homemade Halloween Fashion Icons! Here’s part one
