Happy Halloween Chicas!
Whether you are having a huge bash, taking the kids trick-or-treating, or just staying at home watching scary movies, I have some great Halloween costumes for you to try. What’s even better? These options are budget friendly and allow you to test out your DIY skills!
Moira Rose- Schitt’$ Creek
Our first costume inspo comes from 2020’s 9-time Emmy Award Winning show, Schitt’$ Creek! Dress up as the eccentric matriarch of the Rose family, Moira Rose. Moira lives in black and white attire, so any combination of a white button down with a black skirt or dress layered on top will do this halloween. Just make sure to pair your ensemble with a skinny black bow tie, chunky bracelet, a decorative black necklace, and classic red lipstick and you’re good to go! Want to create one of Moira’s most memorable looks? Get your best short blonde wig, a white button down, and a black garbage bag to create her signature look.
The Ashley Edit SLAYED this halloween look. I know you ladies have some nice leopard print hidden in your closet. Well, it’s time to break the Leopard out of it’s cage for our next costume. First, grab your favorite leopard print top and pair it with a cute black skirt or black jeans and some tall black boots. Next, the makeup! Draw on some whiskers, a cat nose, a few leopard spots on your forehead, and your best winged cat eye. Finally, grab a pair of cat ears from your local dollar store or Walmart and your leopard costume is complete!
Every woman should own a LBD (little black dress). They’re great for dinner parties, weddings, and for our purposes, dressing up as an Audrey Hepburn classic, Holly Golightly. For this look you need to don your favorite LBD, put on a pair of big round sunglasses, and buy a fake pearl necklace from Party City if you don’t have a set of your own. Next, put your hair into a high bun to recreate this iconic look. Lastly, head on over to Starbuck’s to grab your favorite coffee drink and pastry to get ready for your night of Tiffany’s window shopping. This costume is super easy and the best part is you get to enjoy a coffee treat to pull the whole look together!
Sugar Skull/Skeleton Makeup
Our next costume is going to test your artistic abilities. Creating a fun makeup look is a quick and inexpensive option if you forgot it was Halloween. My favorite looks are the Sugar Skull and Skeleton.
For this costume you need to grab your makeup essentials and find a picture of Sugar Skull or Skeleton makeup on your phone to follow for reference. If you’re going the Sugar Skull route, find a colorful flower crown to complete the ensemble.
For the Skeleton look, put on a pair of black jeans and a black shirt to draw attention to your bone-chilling face!
Last, but not least, let’s finish off our DIY Halloween Costumes with a classic–a Scarecrow. I know you ladies own a flannel and most likely, some overalls. Put on your flannel, any color you have, underneath the overalls. Next, head on over to your local craft store to buy some hay and a straw hat. Stuff the hay underneath your overalls and into your sleeves and pant legs. Time to create the Scarecrow makeup look. Draw on an orange nose, orange circles on your cheeks, black stitching on either sides of your lips, and around your nose. That’s it! This look is simple, budget friendly, and sure to cause a scare, well with some crows at the very least!
