It’s that time of the year again: HALLOWEEN! Ghost and goblins rule the night, Hocus Pocus plays nearly every single day on ABC Family’s 13 Nights of Halloween (not that I’m complaining), and children and adults alike dress up in costume to celebrate All Hollow’s Eve.
1. The Sanderson Sisters: Speaking of Hocus Pocus, put a spell on anyone who sees you by grabbing two of your friends and dressing up as Mary, Winifred and Sarah for Halloween.
2. Mermaid: Whether you dress up like Ariel from The Little Mermaid or maybe even the siren on the Starbucks logo, a mermaid is a cute and classy costume that we don’t see very often. You can’t go wrong with the extra glam from Lauren Conrad’s mermaid costume.
3. Mime: A black and white striped shirt, a beret and a temporary vow of silence is all you need to mime your way through Halloween. Practicing your charades is a must.
4. Movie Inspiration: Taking a cue from summer’s blockbuster hits like Jurassic World gives you the opportunity to dress up as a dinosaur, while Avengers: Age of Ultron will unleash your inner superhero.
5. Mythical Creature: If it’s good enough for Taylor Swift, it’s good enough for me. Dress as a Pegasus, unicorn or even a phoenix.
6. Bubble Gum Machine: This DIY costume certainly pops!
7. Roller Disco: Halloween falls on Saturday this year, so catch a little Saturday Night Fever by taking your costume to a roller disco.
8. Disney Princess: With so many characters to choose from, you and your friends could each take on a princess! For an even more interesting group, try to do different versions of the same princess.
9. Throwback: Pick a decade, any decade. Bring out the fringe and the flowers for the 70s or the combat boots and plaid for the 90s.
10. Get Social: We spend all day on it, so why not dress up like our favorite social media channel?
Still need more ideas? Check out last year’s post. And remember, when planning a costume be mindful of choices that could be racially or culturally insensitive. Even if something is meant in “fun,” it still may be offensive to others. Keep it Kappa Classy!
