Halloween Costumes for Every Kind of Occasion

Spirits to summon, enchantments to cast, Halloween arrives at last! As we cast our characters for October’s end, to masquerade is a must. This month, I have assembled a spellbinding team to brew some last minute costume ideas. Stylish souls, use this holiday to cast a spell on your ‘norm’ to conjure a disguise that tickles your inner ghouls or spirits.

Tradition Never Dies

Gender Splinter
Fracture your gender identity by dividing a men’s suit and a feminine frock. Gender is at odds by splitting two outfits in half.

Wind-Up Doll
Harajuku lovers, this one is for you. Create your own wind-up doll with a fun flouncy dress and a unique key to turn your crank.

Circus Freak
Go cirque berserk and channel Teatro Zinzanni because you cannot go wrong with compiling all styles found in your closet, plus an extra appendage.

Batman Villains
Wrangle friends to team up as one evil force of foes with characters green with envy (Poison Ivy), as cold as ice (Ice Man) and a cruel wise cracker (The Joker). Batman


Karl Lagerfeld
As the hardest working and most brilliant man in fashion, button your collar high, spray your hair white and throw on your shades to exude Chanel elegance and Karl attitude.

Donatella Versace
No need for lip injections or bleached blond hair… work your in- ner diva and your signature pose in a dazzling nightwear outfit.

Edie Sedgwick
Inspire to be Warhol’s muse with an eclectic sixty’s look with huge earrings, a leotard paired with knee high boots, a fur coat and don’t forget your free spirit.

Reading into it…

Tale of Two Cities
don’t have to pick your city tonight so dress-up in “the best of times and the worst of times” with Paris and London styles swirled into one.

Cat in the Hat
Be the cat in the hat, don’t be a brat-it is as easy as that! Halloween: No better excuse to live in the world of Dr. Seuss.

To be or not to be-there is no question. ‘Tis noble to fashion a collar and cuffs of thy faire coffee filters.

Speedy Assembly

Dinner Is on Me
Resorting to frozen meals weekly proves to come in handy as you save your boxes and attach the evi-

Little White Lie
Wear only the purest color (white) and attach post-its of common lies to symbolize a little “courtesy” when put on the spot.

  3. :38 Mark that down as a Down 94 91, Joe Johnson literally found Kevin Garnett inside the restricted circle and two feet away from the hoop. As Garnett caught the ball, Roy Hibbert came over from the help side and went straight up, forcing Garnett to push up a floater over Hibbert extended arm. The outcome? Complete air ball, the rock eventually lands out of bounds, and Pacers get the ball. Game effectively over Or not, because Paul George just turned the ball over.
