Why dress up like Heidi Montag for Halloween? Because it’s so simple, fun, and cheap–just like Heidi herself! (Sorry, I had to say it.) First, buy yourself a hideous Heidiwood-esque garment. Her collection isn’t available online, but Wet Seal, always a reliable vendor of garish wares, sells fabulous imitations. Particularly evocative of Montag’s–um–unique style are this zebra halter top ($22.50) and foil animal print dress ($22.50).
Then, add some simple black pumps — get an affordable version that you’ll also be able to use at the office, like these Kenneth Coles ($40). Accessorize with an unattractive metal-studded plastic purse ($14.50) and an over-the-top pendant necklace ($8).
Don a honey-blonde wig from Ricky’s Costume Shop ($20), apply lots of dark eyeliner, and BINGO! You’re Heidi. And not that semi-fictional Heidi from The Hills, but real life Heidi in all her glory – the gal who thinks patent leather is all the rage and animal prints are haute couture.
