You Should Wear a Classic Costume!


Your everyday style is timeless and always occasion-appropriate. That’s why you should totally wear a classic Halloween costume this year!

Some people might think that classic Halloween costumes are boring or predictable. However, this definitely doesn’t have to be the case!

When picking a classic costume like an angel for Halloween, there’s actually plenty of room for creativity. Whether you buy a new costume or use pieces from your wardrobe that you already own, you’ll have the opportunity to customize your look and make it unique to you, (while still being classic).

Create the costume:

For a classic angel costume, opt for a white satin mini dress (this one features a trendy bustier design) and some white feathered wings (or DIY them yourself!).

Of course, you can go a non-traditional route and pick any other color scheme you fancy. And if dresses aren’t your thing, you can swap the dress out for pants and a blouse – like I said, classic costumes truly are customizable!

Here are some more classic Halloween costume ideas to inspire you: Any kind of cat (black cat, cheetah, leopard), superhero, cowgirl, devil, Disney princess, cheerleader, any classic movie character.

You Should Wear a Scary Costume!

CARRIE Halloween Costume + Makeup Tutorial! ASHTOBERFEST IV

You live for a good scare, and you think that Halloween is the perfect time to channel major spooky vibes.That’s why a scary Halloween costume is the perfect option for you!

When it comes to scary costumes, there’s a wide range of options out there, from slightly spooky to full-on frightening. It’s up to you just how scary you want to look!

Consider Carrie White from the classic horror film Carrie. This costume involves wearing a prom-inspired look, like a light pink satin maxi dress and rhinestone tiara.

Create this costume:

Sounds sweet, right? Wrong! The key to this scary costume is lots of fake blood. For a scary Carrie costume, fake blood (buy it on Amazon here) should be all over your dress, body, and even a part of your makeup look. This gives me chills just thinking about it!

Here are some more scary Halloween costume ideas to inspire you: Creepy clown, zombie, demon, character from American Horror Story (think Rubber Man or Countess Elizabeth Johnson), Annabelle the doll.

You Should Wear a Funny Costume!


Who says Halloween has to be all about the creepiness factor?! Not you, that’s for sure! That’s why you should definitely go for a funny Halloween costume.

Costumes involving puns or a play on words are a clever way to show off your sense of humor – plus, they make for a great conversation starter at a Halloween parties. Everyone will want to try to figure out what your costume means!

For example, take the proverbial phrase: “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” You can turn this saying into a funny costume by wearing a yellow outfit or a lemon print dress, doing lemon eye makeup (like in the YouTube video above), and if you want to go the extra mile, toting real lemons around.

Create this costume:

This lemon printed dress and beaded lemon clutch bag are perfect for this costume, not to mention, fashionable! You’d totally be able to wear both of these items beyond Halloween, too. To complete this costume, be sure to wear a sign or name tag that says “Life.”

You can also go the funny character route by opting to be a cartoon character or recognizable character from a TV show or movie.

Whatever you decide, just remember that if a costume involves making fun of or stereotyping someone’s race, sexuality, gender, age, or culture, it’s definitely something you should pass on! This is true no matter how light-hearted or silly it might seem to you/your friends.

Here are some more funny Halloween costume ideas to inspire you: Holy cow (put on a cow costume, along with a pair of angel wings and a halo), raining cats and dogs (stick a bunch of cat and dog pictures to your outfit and carry an umbrella), Bee-yoncé (dress partially like a bumblebee and partially as Beyoncé would), Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick Star, Troll dolls, Minions.

You Should Wear a Glam Costume!


You aren’t afraid to be a little extra, and love an opportunity to get glammed up. That’s why a glam Halloween costume is ideal for you!

When it comes to glam costumes, everything from your hairstyle, makeup, and accessories play a big role in your overall look. This is your chance to really do it up, with glitter, heels, hair extensions – you name it!

A Bratz doll is the perfect example of a glam costume, and is especially on-trend this year, considering how popular Y2K-inspired fashion has become.

Since Bratz dolls have a “Passion for Fashion,” opt for Y2K clothing with fashionable flair like rhinestones, glitter, and/or faux fur.

Bratz dolls are also known for their cool accessories and chunky platform shoes, so some bold platform boots and rimless shield sunglasses are a must!

Create this costume:

Be sure to have fun with your makeup look too, since Bratz dolls are known for their glossy lips and fun eyeshadow shades.

Here are some more glam Halloween costume ideas to inspire you: mermaid, flapper, goddess, historical queen, “diva” celebrity (real or fictional), Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.
