BOO! Borrow your neighbours crocs and socks cause it’s October and Halloween is just around the corner!
For anyone who knows me personally, they know that Halloween is my favourite time of year. Over Christmas, Valentines Day and even my own birthday, Halloween takes the cake. Who doesn’t want to be someone else for a night and dance like nobody knows you? Sign me up!
With Christmas coming up, I thought I’d do two halloween posts. One for those who are saving for christmas presents and holidays and don’t want to spend much on their costumes, and the second post which will be released very soon about how to put in a little extra effort this halloween. So I’ve got everyone covered, the die hard halloween lovers and the ‘holy crap, Halloween is this month?! I need costume inspiration!’ type person.
So let’s get started.
Who would have thought sequins could be so edgy! Throw on a party dress or something sparkly and mix it with a leather jacket, grunge boots and even a painted on tattoo and you’re ready to rock on!
The Retro Housewife
With a fit and flare dress and a duster or wine glass, the Retro Housewife costume comes to life. If you’re good with styling hair, try some victory rolls and add a winged liner (this looks best before wine) and a bold lip and you’ll look like little betty homemaker!
The Ringmaster / Cabaret Dancer
A black and white ensemble can give you an array of costumes, but with a little sparkle and a hat you’ll look like a Ringmaster or a Cabaret Dancer! Throw on some stockings, a skirt or pair of shorts with a white shirt and black jacket as a base and add props like a cane, lions whip, top hat or moustache!
Not only will you be in comfortable dancing gear for the night but you’ll be Instagram ready in your coolest activewear! Throw on your runners and a matching workout wear ensemble and for extra effect, write some hashtags on your body!
How amazing would this halloween costumes list be if I didn’t include my own style icon, Blair Waldorf? Not very! Mix some prints, pile on the accessories, use your phone as a prop and don’t forget your resting bitch face!
The great thing about this costume is that you can pretty much wear anything and you only have to focus on the makeup. You could be any type of vampire too, a traditional vampire, a hipster vampire. a cheerleading vampire or a nurse vampire! The possibilities are endless.
