Hey everyone, and happy Fashion Friday!! I know I said I was going to post this on the 30th, but I’ve got a million and one things going on this weekend, so I’m posting the rest of these adorable costume ideas from Julia today! Stay tuned next week for the second half of the 2 part series on Little Red Riding Hood! Now, I’m handing it over to Julia with her costume ideas coming straight from your closet!!
1. Jessica “Jess” Day — “New Girl”
Who’s that girl? It’s Jess! Jess from “New Girl” is adorkable and perfect for a last minute costume. You need a colorful dress and some shoes in a contrasting color. If you don’t have bangs like me, create some faux ones using an online tutorial. Top off the look with some big glasses, and make sure your eyes look BIG!
Optional: Sing alllllll night long
2. Hermione Granger — Harry Potter
Harry Potter is ALWAYS relevant. This costume is recognizable and easily assembled. You need a white oxford shirt, black shoes, black or gray skirt, and either a sweater or a sweater vest. Tease your hair all over to make it big and frizzy. If you don’t have a wand lying around your house, venture outside (ugh) and find a stick.
Optional: Make a Gryffindor pin from red cardstock and a print-out hot glued to a safety pin
Bonus points if: You wear a red and gold striped tie
3. Violet Baudelaire — The Series of Unfortunate Events
The Series is coming back in a big way – as a Netflix original series. Beat the onslaught of Violet costumes that are right around 2016’s corner and show that you are one with the times. I LOVE this costume because the only thing you HAVE to have is a bow in your hair. I am wearing a plain gray dress and blue oxford shirt underneath, but any kind of outfit that includes a dress or skirt in muted color is perfection. I am carrying The Unauthorized Biography of Lemony Snicket just to make the costume more recognizable.
Optional: Find someone to play Olaf or Klaus!
4. Holly Golightly — “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”
Who doesn’t want to be Audrey Hepburn? Don’t lie to yourself. This Holly costume strays from your typical tiara-and-pearls nonsense. You only need one item! A trench coat. Use a lot of hairspray to bump up the front part of your hair and curl two cute pigtails! Retro makeup is a must!
Optional: A ginger cat named Cat. (My cat is named Audrey. She’s neurotic.)
5. Luke Danes — “Gilmore Girls”
“Gilmore Girls” is my all time favorite show. I’ve been in love with Luke Danes since I was very, very young. You need a plaid shirt, jeans, and a backwards baseball cap. Carry a coffee cup or coffee pot and shoot everyone looks of disapproval because Halloween candy is VERY bad for you.
Optional: Luke’s Diner merchandise.
Thanks so much again to Julia for putting together these awesome costumes!! She’s the coolest, am I right?! Hope y’all have an AMAZING Friday!!
❤ Abbie and Julia
