Halloween is just around the corner and everyone is dishing about costume ideas. Here are our some of our top picks for non-typical outfit options.
In 2009 these spunky sisters replaced Sex and the City girls among friends playing the “which character are you” personality test game. Life-of-the-party drama queens can dress as Khloe. Seductive entrepreness types are a good fit for Kim. And subtle seductresses make fab Kourtneys.
Confident older women who love hot, young men are hilarious contemporary pop culture staples. Grab a pack of your fiercest girls and wear towering heels with sultry low cut dresses. Tease your hair, spray tan your skin and don’t forget to accessorize with a giant martini. Or, dress as an actual cougar! Rent furry digs from your local costume shop.
Honor Charlie’s late angel Farrah Fawcett with a bodacious tribute costume. Swayze fans can celebrate his contribution to entertainment by gathering an entourage decked out in Dirty Dancing finery. And MJ enthusiasts can remember the good days of the King of Pop’s reign with sequins and leather.
4. Game Show Contestants
Who didn’t love Supermarket Sweep?! Think pairs of friends in solid crew neck sweaters, high-waisted jeans, white Keds, large name tags, huge hair and blue eyeshadow. Push around a children’s sized grocery cart full of plastic foods for kicks.
5. Beauty Contestants Gone Wild
Great for large groups! Everyone in your party wears disheveled dresses with sashes that say things like “Miss Construe,” “Miss Diagnosed,” “Miss Behaving,” Miss Deameanor,” “Miss Conduct,” “Miss Communication” etc.
6. Empowered Female Athletes
Dress as your favorite real life female sports hero, or if your group is large, consider dressing as Rockford Peaches, the personality packed, fictional women’s baseball team from A League of Their Own.
7. Tired Ladies
Wear pajamas, robes, slippers, and sleeping masks over very messy hair. Let mascara run down your faces. Carry a coffee cup, a magazine in the pocket of your robes, and carry a pillow.
8. Robert Palmer Video Girls
The back up dancers in Robert Palmer’s iconic Addicted to Love video are the ultimate sex kittens in thigh-skimming skirts, killer heels and ultra smoky eye makeup. Grab four of your girls and recreate the magic.
9. Sunburned Tourist
Dress like a tourist with Hawaiian shirt, Bermuda shorts, cameras around your neck, black socks with sandals, etc. Use makeup and self tanner to give yourself a bright red sunburn.
10. Self absorbed
Ideal for the narcissist in all of us. This one is simple, just hot glue or sew standard kitchen sponges all over a monochrome outfit.
