Here's Everything You Need To Make A Unicorn Frappuccino Halloween Costume

We’re predicting that 2017 will go down in history as the year of the unicorn. For whatever reason, everyone this year has been obsessing over this mythical creature, and at some point rainbows became synonymous with unicorn style. From unicorn hair braids to unicorn makeup trends, beauty gurus alike have embraced the unicorn fad full-force. You know it must he huge, too, if Starbucks hopped on the bandwagon with its limited-edition Unicorn Frappuccino. Want to partake in all the unicorn fun? There’s no better time than Halloween. We rounded up everything you need to DIY a unicorn costume. Lots of glitter is involved.

First, you obviously need a unicorn horn. Because this trend is currently such a hit, you won’t have a hard time finding this necessary accessory. We picked out one from ASOS, but you can also get your hands on a unicorn horn from Spirit Halloween and Charming Charlie. Most come adorned with pretty flower decorations. You’re won’t be just a regular unicorn—you’ll be a cool, decorative unicorn.

ASOS Unicorn Headband ($16)

Now that you’ve got your appropriate unicorn headgear covered, let’s talk clothes. Our outfit selections for this costume were inspired by Cosmopolitan, which has created a “unicorn correspondent” Instagram page for your recommended dose of all things unicorn-related. Their correspondent wears a shimmery rainbow skirt and LOTS and lots of glitter. We love this metallic skater skirt, but it’s unfortunately sold out. You can still get your unicorn skirt bearings with this silver metallic midi skirt from ASOS for $48, or even with this cute unicorn-printed skater skirt from Poprageous for $49.

Poprageous Unicorn Blood Skater Skirt

Next, you need an equally shimmery or sparkly top to complement your skirt. This little sequin number from Tobi totally does the trick. Bonus—it’s even on sale! The color will pair perfectly with your corresponding unicorn skirt, and who doesn’t love a good sequined top!? Or, you can really go all out and find a graphic unicorn t-shirt, like this $12 Magic Moment Unicorn Tee from Nasty Gal. It even has a piece of purple tulle on the front! You can’t get much more unicorn-inspired than that.

Tobi Glitz & Glamour Silver Sequin Crop Top ($14)

Your outfit is just one piece of the puzzle—your makeup has to look the part, too. Cue unicorn-themed beauty products. For your lips, you absolutely need the Too Faced lip cream in the Unicorn Tears shade. They describe it as an “iridescent shimmer,” so it can blend in with your apparel. Plus, it’s marked as a fan fave! Make sure you also give your eyes the appropriate unicorn treatment with Hot Topic’s Blackheart Unicorn Blood Eyeshadow Palette for $8.90.

Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream ($22)

For the finishing touch, GLITTER. Seophora comes to the rescue with an entire line of easy to apply glitter from Make Up For Ever for $15. Just dab a wet brush in the product and apply it allllll over your body, face and all. You can even sprinkle it into your lip cream for the ultimate sparkly lip finish.
