Halloween – Girly Costume Ideas and My Past Costumes


I love a good slutty costume and I highly encourage anyone considering it to go for it. There are some situations though where you can’t go full-out drag queen in her underwear (work, an “adult” party, when you feel too old but have to dress up).  Here’s a few ideas/tutorials to inspire you this year:

1. Elsa! If you aren’t sick of Frozen yet try out shaanxo’s Elsa tutorial which she describes as “easiest Halloween makeup ever!”

Ok I know we already went over the scary costume ideas, but I had to post this Frostbite Elsa since it’s so cool, plus Glam&Gore explains how to do the regular Elsa first:

And one more variation that might be cute, especially if you have a daughter going as Elsa:

2. Maleficent– Every guru did their take on the extreme contouring of Maleficent. Here’s one of my favorites Kandee Johnson showing you how it’s done:

3. An animal! You can dress this up or down or even go the Mean Girls route (“I’m a mouse, duh.”)

This CleoCatra by Chrisspy is super creative:

4. Girls make great super heroes. Loving this Wonder Woman tutorial by Kandee Johnson, she totally transforms!:

Or you can go for Batman who someone once told me has the best super power ever- a super human bank account. This tutorial will not break the bank though because she uses almost entirely drug store products:

5. The non-costume costume90’s grunge. This look is super popular right now. Bust out your chokers, ying yangs, brown lipstick, and flannel for this look. I wonder if Kylie Jenner brought this look back. Don’t forget every guru’s favorite lipstick of the moment Gerard Cosmetics in 1995. Here’s 100+ more Halloween Costume Ideas Inspired by the 90s including the Craft which is an A+ group costume idea for you and 3 of your friends.

Here’s Jaclyn Hill’s take on it:

Lustre Lux’s 90’s inspired look:

Makeup Geek’s- I like the “bad brow day” part because the other day I was feeling super Groucho Marx not gonna lie:

Still not feeling inspired? Check out my Halloween Pinterest board which includes links to 100 Couples Costumes and adorable baby costumes like this tiny little Sofia from The Golden Girls:

What’s that? You wish this post had more about me personally? If you insist… Here’s some pictures of my last few Halloweens. I will say that I’m super lucky to have a best friend who passes down her amazing costumes to me!:

This was actually not Halloween it was a birthday party where everyone had to dress up as something beginning with the letter "C"  so I chose Coco-T. That is a full bath towel rolled up making my butt look like that.

2010 I was a cute little French maid. Why did I leave this wig in Florida?! Did you figure out which fabulous friend I borrow costumes from? ;)
