Halloween Costumes

Halloween.  Scary times!  Scary mostly because I can never seem to come up with a good costume when I need one (halloween isn’t just for kids, afterall!).  Figuring some of you are also in the same boat, I’ve done some research.  Here are a few frightful, ingenious, easy or inventive costumes:

Love this clever jellyfish costume idea.

Matt Lauer dressed as Paris Hilton.  Cropped skirt, barely there top, blonde wig, oversized purse and a small pooch.  Done.  And the likeness is a little frightening, I have to say!

Pregnant?  Why not dress as a Mummy?  Jessica Simpson pulled this off really well.  Love the frizzed out hair.

Perhaps not as topical as at it would have been for last year’s Halloween, but Kathy Lee Gifford and Hota Kotb’s Princess Beatrice & Eugenie costumes made me laugh!

Super simple, Nicky Hilton does Halloween as Holly Golightly. Grab a short black shift dress, throw on some pearls, some 60-inspired shades, drop earrings and you’re away.  If you can find yourself a cigarette holder and long black gloves, even better!

Some other ideas I’ve come across:

Fashion Victim: open your closet and dig out the oldest and most out-of-date stuff you can find.  Mix it all together for a crazy mish-mash.  Come on, I know you’ve got some good & horrifying bits in that closet of yours.  Or someone you know does!

Ugly Betty: Heavy rimmed glasses.  Bad hair and fashion. Look complete.

Gold Digger: Cover yourself with gold clothing, shoes, hat, etc., and layer on the gold jewellery and carry a shovel or wear a gold miner’s hard hat.  I’m leaning towards this costume myself this year.

For the Men.  Mark Zuckerberg: jeans and a hoodie and a facebook logo.

Where’s Waldo: Red and white striped shirt, black hat, a camera and big, black-rimmed glasses.

Quaterback: Yup, you guessed it, stick one or more quarters to your back! or…

Quarter Pounder: Take a quarter and a hammer with you to the party!  Thank you to Coupon Sherpa for some of these ideas.

What will you be wearing this Halloween?  Will you go the easy route or throw your heart and soul into planning and making your costume?  Tell me all about it in the comment section below.
