Halloween Style Doubles

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

There are two types of girls – the ones who spend hours painting, crafting, and sewing a beautiful Halloween costume, and the ones who use their cheap eyeliner to draw on whiskers and throw on a pair of cat ears.

I’m not ashamed to say I’m the cat.

It’s not that I’m lazy (I am), or don’t want to spend the money on an outfit I’ll wear once (I don’t), or even the fact that I’m not creative enough to come up with a unique costume (probably am not) – it’s just…. All of those reasons combined.

Halloween was a time to pretend to be something you’re not, whether that was a princess, a superhero, or whatever – but now you know what I like to pretend to be… rich, and I can’t pretend to be rich while spending dolla dolla billz on the cheap table cloth piece the local costume store is selling in hopes it’ll make me Marilyn Monroe for the night.

Pinterest has really helped over the years with all the DIY costumes. You’d be surprised what some old dance makeup and costumes could make, but it’s time to be original, and I want pieces that I can re-wear when Halloween is over.

In my quest to find this year’s Halloween costume on a budget, I have kept in mind the desire to be able to wear these spooky pieces again in the day light without looking like I’m Halloween’s number one fan.

Super Villains:

HUGE fan of all the super hero and villain shows/movies/costumes. I love the dramatic makeup used, and how you really can get creative with outfit choice (stop being Harley Quinn, we are over it).

The Joker:

Famous for a color combo of green and purple, don’t be afraid to mix it up with a bold red lip and some green hair dye. We’ve got the thigh high purple boots the Joker wishes he had to destroy Gotham in.

Shop Thigh High Purple Boots

Not a fan of heels on Halloween? Maybe switch to water. KIDDING. Try the mesh two piece set in purple, and deck your face out in makeup. Both of these pieces can be worn again in a going out setting, or mixed and matched with other pieces in your closet.

Even if you’re not a fan, you have to respect that they literally dictate the fashion world. The girls have style, so why not try it for yourself. We’ve got a few looks that’ll take you to celeb in no time.
