Halloween Costume Ideas for the Ladies
Spooky nights are fast approaching and you might be thinking what costume you should wear on the upcoming Halloween party. If you can't find the exact outfit for the character you have in mind, not a problem. With a little mix and matching of your regular or normal clothes or a quick online shopping, you can definitely come up with a decent outfit!
Get that Look
One of the most important thing in attending a Halloween party is to be able to get the look of the character you are portraying. You want other party goers to recognize what character you are playing with just one look at you. Who knows you might just bag the award for the best Halloween costume.
Here are some characters that you can easily find a costume or outfit for:
Daenerys despite wearing a blue gown looks fierce, not someone you wanna mess around with. To pull off this look you can search for plain blue maxi dress (like the one shown below) and match it up with gold accessories.
Look for wide gold belts (like obi belts) that you can put around your blue maxi dress. It will definitely add up spice to your outfit. If you don't have a blonde hair, look for wigs that are already styled according to Daenery's hairstyle. See below for the ebay link.
Even though Sherlock is a guy, a girl can also pull off this look. I think this is an easy costume idea for you especially if you have a lot of coat and slacks hiding in your closet. Pair it with a top hat and you're ready to play the role of detective. But of course you'll also need some props for you to really be in character. What does a detective need to solve a case? A magnifying glass! And if you still have a budget, add up a smoking pipe on your props.
Katniss is another character that is easy to dress up as because of the simple outfit that she have. One important detail if you want to look like Katniss is her famous side braid. If you don't know how to do it, there are lots of video tutorials on Youtube that can guide you. After you master the art of braiding, it's time to you to look for similar outfit and props that can help you be the girl that most girls would like to be.
If you will refer on the picture on the right side, Katniss is wearing a hooded jacket, a boots (combat boots) a black shirt underneath and a military pants.
