Inspiration: Halloween Costumes

7

Tis the season to use your abundance of creativity to create some epic costumes for Halloween! While there are the classics getups that will always have a presence every year, there are also some really interesting and innovative costumes. Here are a few of OUR favorites!

Pixel Girl Costume

Remember those terribly (unintentionally) grainy pictures from our flip phones? This pixel girl reminds us of a simpler time before DSLR cameras and smart phones. We may not be able to handle the pixelated look in the digital world, but the costume rocks!

Lego Figures Costumes

Take your average costume up a couple of notches by Lego-fying it. Let us introduce to you the Lego theorem:

Cop Costume + Legos = Lego Cop and Cop Costume < Lego Cop Costume. Always.

Beetlejuice Family Costume

Beetlejuice is an 80s Halloween classic! This family costume was perfectly creepy, and also totally adorable. Although I don’t remember Beetlejuice being so cute!

Where the Wild Things Are CostumeThis costume has become much more popular since Maurice Sendak’s children’s book, Where the Wild Things Are, became a live action movie. This costume is perfect for a family, just make sure YOUR Max can handle the scary wild things.

Green Army Men Costume

Do you remember playing with these army men toys as a kid? These little green guys are the perfect group costume for kids at heart.

Did our list give you any new ideas? Leave a comment, and tell us what you’re going to be for Halloween! If you’re looking for more inspiration, we have a ton of suggestions on our Trick or Tricks page!

    I was in a big Hindu wedding this summer, and still have the beautiful Sari, so I’m going as a bollywood zombie. I don’t have to spend money, I want to wear the sari again, and it’ll be fun!

      Oooh sounds pretty and scary at the same time! Sounds like the perfect costume to us! It’s great when you get more than one use out of a bridesmaid’s dress, right?

    These costumes are so cute and creative! I’m currently stressing about what to be for Halloween – I can’t decide between a zombie or a cupcake! I want to be something really funky and creative, but I have limited time, resources, and money to do so!

    • M&J Trimming says:

      What about a zombie cupcake? Now that’s DEFINITELY not a costume you’ll find in the store. Our tip is to re-purpose something you already have at home, and give it new life as a costume!
