Just In: Halloween Costume Quick Guide

Large Editorial Image


October 25, 2007

It's already halfway through October! Time is running out on choosing your alter-ego for this year's parties. From coquettish to classic, storybook to superfly, there’s no end to the fun you can have on All Hallow’s Eve. Problem is, finding a costume takes time you probably don’t have, so here’s a quick-fix guide to some serious costume hunting: For the sexy, it should come as no surprise that Fredericks of Hollywood does it up for Holly-ween. From a smokin’ Native Princess Costume to amazing wigs (think Afro, Cleopatra-style, and that perfect volume you've always dreamt about.)

Henry and June also play up the naughty with everything from the Pirate Cutie to the Cuddly Lion (with hilarious, furry anklets). Have fun, it's the one time of a year where no one can call you out for dressing like a 'ho. imageIf a more classic approach to costuming is your thing, the Discovery Store has a beautiful selection of historical figures you can emulate from the Queen of the Nile to Woodland Faerie all priced under $100. And, let us never forget the secret gems one might find, scouring Ren sites for the traditional bawdy wench and ye olde Maid Marian wannabes. image

The Disney Store is an obvious choice. Favorites are Cruella DeVil (complete with wig and purse) and the eye-catching Queen of Hearts. Completely clueless on a character? Try Anytime Costumes literally has everything from Austin Powers to the Pink Ladies to Cowboys and Indians and superheroes (and they have plus sizes too). Target .com, Online Advertising And, of course– one must always accessorize. Sometimes, that's all you need to whip up something with clothes you already have. Target.comicon has the most comprehensive list of affordable (almost all under $19.99) swords, slippers, wigs, fangs and cloaks out there, not to mention some serious pet costumesicon. Women can shop by price point and size, they offer a good selection of plus sizes.

But whatever you choose to wear, BEWARE! You may experience death by trick-or-treat chocolate. And you single ladies, be safe. Halloween is the #1 night for one-night stands…
