I feel like I dress up for Halloween everyday. I always have a theme in mind and usually some character reference. Costumes? Who needs them.
Here's my dress up repertoire:
Mimi from Rent:
My outfit inspiration was from Mimi in this pic and this post. Outfit inspiration only because I do not, repeat do not, want to be a stripper or look like one.
If I were to tackle this one on October 31st, I would rip the tights and add a leopard coat. Some smeary eye make-up wouldn't hurt, either.
School girl or Rachel Berry from GLEE:
A plaid skirt could give you a myriad of options. Bonus is that you can go as sexy or as demure as you like.
A Mad Men character:
In my case, I'd probably go for Trudy or Peggy. If you're redheaded or blonde, Joan and Betty are the obvious choices.
Add a hat and you're all set.
I bet if you think back, you play dress-up everyday, too. Add an accessory and even a Halloween-hater like me could have a stylish costume.
