Group Roundup: Halloween Fashion & Costumes

My favourite Hallowe'en costume was Snow White. I dressed up as her several years ago with a store bought costume, which I think is a bit too risque for here (and honestly, it's quite short and out of my current comfort zone). I love the idea of being able to pull together a costume from your actual closet, so this was my attempt at Snow White! Luckily, I still had my black wig handy!

I went to a Halloween party last night but haven't had a chance to go through pictures, so here's a flashback to last year when I was Mary Poppins. It was a pretty easy costume to put together- the clothes were thrifted and I made the bow tie out of red felt. Out of desperation, I bought the hat at a costume shop and glued on plastic daisies. I had to buy a new umbrella, but it's come in handy since :)

I don't usually dress up for Halloween, but a friend of mine had a birthday/costume party last night so I gave in.  I didn't want to spend any money on my costume so I dusted off my Minnie Mouse ears from Disneyland and went with it!  I used a plain black crop top with my Hell Bunny skirt and a full crinoline underneath.  I love that it's not far off from my everyday outfit ensemble (except for the makeup, of course!).

Halloween is the best. I mean, costumes and candy? What could be better? I usually make my costume or build one around something already in my closet. The Cat in the Hat is one of my favorites that I've put together. A couple of years ago, I needed something to wear to my work event. I had scored this awesome Modcloth tuxedo sweater dress in a swap and inspiration struck when I realized how cartoony it was. I DIYed a small version of the hat (glued to a headband with a cat ear) based on tutorials I found online. Then I made a giant bow pin for the sweater. Adding my 2D inspired Jump from Paper bag was a no-brainer, so I brought that along too. It was a delightful (and comfortable!) costume that was inexpensive and easy.

I've never been one to get really into Halloween. I'm usually the person who spends $5 on a nametag that says "Hi, my name is 'Life'" and a bag of lemons to be "when life gives you lemons" (like I did last year), but I decided to have a little more fun with it this year for a costume party and for work. Back to the Future is one of my all-time favorite movies, so when I realized how easy it would be to be Marty McFly, I couldn't resist. I only had to buy a white plaid button down from Goodwill and a red puffy vest from JC Penney, and I enlisted the help of my best friend to be Doc Brown. After all, why dress in a slutty costume when you can be dudes from an '80s movie? I don't know, Doc, this is heavy.


  1. These are all fantastic costumes and loving they are all from everyday clothing too.

  2. Ugh I forgot to add mine! You all look so great.

  3. I love all six of the outfits in the photos above. I love the Cat in the Hat, Mary Poppins, Minnie Mouse and Snow White. I would have LOVED to see some photos showing off that store bought Snow White costume but the Snow White outfit shown here is lovely too.

  4. So many bows! And everyone is so resourceful. Such great costumes, girls!

  5. You all look so adorable and all have clever ideas! I wish I could have joined in the fun but alas... I had no costume pictures and didn't have any time to pull anything together. This is so fun though!!! You girls are great!

  6. I love all of the homemade costumes!
