I wanted to title this “Five Clever Halloween Costume Ideas” but it’s extremely difficult to think of original costume ideas. Seriously, I went through a cup of coffee per costume to make this piece. However, I think that these three costumes are easy, fun and chic! I know you all are busy doing whatever boss lady, important business that you do best so you don’t have time to sit around and think of the perfect costume idea. No worries, I did the work for you and I promise these outfits are winners.
The Cat’s Pajamas
Slapping some cat ears on and a black body suit is the oldest trick in a girl’s Halloween handbook. This costume is a bit of a twist that won’t cost a penny. All you need is some cat ears, your cutest pair of pjs and maybe even slippers if you feel like it. The cat’s pajamas is the perfect last minute costume that appears to have more thought into it. It will definitely get a laugh out of other party goers, plus, it gives you the excuse to wear pajamas to a party (need I say more).
2. Pumpkin Pi
Pumpkin Pi is another clever costume that people will get at first sight! All you need is to take a basic pumpkin costume (I used stencils and black paint on an orange tshirt). Then, using gold glitter paper, cut out a Pi Sign and either tape it to your shirt or wear it around your neck with a ribbon! This costume will make you stand out from other pumpkins and will be a conversation starter at parties.
3. Eleven (and Mike?)
This last one is a couple costume and while it isn’t original, I promise that it’s so fun and easy. This was my costume of choice for my boyfriend’s halloween party and everyone loved it. All you need is a pink dress, white socks, converse, a white collared shirt, a rain jacket, waffles and fake blood. This idea isn’t as easy as the others but the only thing I wasn’t able to find in my closet was the Eggos (which was actually a shock to me). I felt awesome in this outfit because you only get to be a character as wonderful as Eleven on Halloween. If you haven’t watched Stranger things, you aren’t living.
I hope you all enjoyed my ideas! (Sorry there weren’t more). I hope that you all have a killer Halloween. Whether it’s spent at a party (what I’m probably doing) or watching scary movies and stuffing your face with chocolate (what I will wish I was doing). Stay safe ladies!
