Modest Halloween Costume Ideas
There are a lot of reasons that this Halloween you might want to cover up more than the average costume allows. Maybe you don't live in the Florida Wetlands where it's fun to wear a miniskirt at the end of October. Maybe your personal style or morals mean that you're more comfortable when you're showing less skin. Or maybe you're just looking for a way to stick out from the crowd or to do something a little different this year.
Whatever your reasons are, dressing on the modest side for Halloween can help keep you warm and confident as the night goes on. Here are some costumes that cover a bit more skin and still make you look beautiful.
Little Red Riding Hood
Still fun, still flattering, all without baring much skin. And that cloak will keep you extra-warm on a chilly night.
Mary Poppins is the epitome of classy, and no one will wonder why you're covered-up. Plus, how great is that bag? You could carry that long after Halloween's through.
Channel your inner Audrey. Bonus points if you put your kid in that dress and put the droves of Despicable Me Minions to shame. (You can put a black sweater and some leggings/tights on her to keep her warm and more covered, if you like.)
Rosie the Riveter
Powerful women can wear whatever they want on Halloween, skimpy or not skimpy. Show your support for all women while wearing what makes you comfortable by dressing as a seriously awesome feminist icon.
King and Queen
A great, embrace-the-cheesy couple's costume.
Here's great inspiration for a modest mermaid costume.
How cute is this? And it's perfect for chilly weather.
Wicked Witch Costume
Okay, so it's not the most original idea, but as long as you paint your face, no one can say you didn't commit. Plus, there's definitely a thrill in being something genuinely scary for Halloween, and with the Wicked Witch of the West, you can scare, cover-up, and look good while doing it.
