I have once again been absent from the blogosphere for a little while due to illness but I'm trying to find the time/energy to blog and as Halloween is tomorrow I thought I'd return with a post of Halloween appropriate outfit ideas. I'm not actually going out for Halloween this year as I'm unwell so I will be spending my Halloween tucked up in bed with comfort food and my all time favourite horror films but if I did have plans I would love to dress up but as I'm a last minute kind of girl when it comes to planning I'd probably go for something fairly simple and easy to pull together. So without waffling on here are a few outfit/costume ideas I've put together:
First up we have a Halloween classic, a skeleton, now I thought about just going for one of the many skeleton onesies available at the moment but I've been eyeballing the skeleton sweatshirt from ASOS for a few weeks anyway and it glows in the dark making it perfect for a Halloween party and it goes perfectly with the skeleton leggings. I wanted a good chunky shoe to complete the look and I wanted to only include items I would wear again after halloween (I have too many random animal ears/wands/fairy wings cluttering my bedroom) so I went for a classic with some Dr Martens industrial combat boots. For finishing touches I'd add my new favourite skeleton gloves from ASOS and this adorable glittery bone hair clip.
If you're up to putting in a little bit more effort you could go for one of my favourite horror film characters Tiffany from Bride Of Chucky, I love all of the Childs Play films, I even have a life size Chucky doll, but I think Bride Of Chucky is my favourite. This is my favourite outfit and probably what I'd go for if I was going out this halloween, it's so easy to do all you really need is a leather jacket and a white dress, this ASOS one is great because it looks a little wedding-y. For accessories add some black lacy tights, a black choker like this Ebay one and a pair of chunky boots like these Dr Martens. For finishing touches add a good layer of black lipstick and place a heart shaped transfer tattoo on your chest and you're all set to go out and bag yourself a Chucky.
Lastly if you're feeling more strange and unusual you may fancy channeling your inner Lydia Deetz Beetlejuice style, again this would be a fairly easy costume to put together just throw on a long sleeved black dress and some black witch like boots, these ASOS ones are perfect, and accessorize with a vintage camera, spiky fringe and black lace veil. I added this snake earcuff just because it reminded me of the film and it seemed appropriate.
