It's almost Halloween! Whether you are going trick-or-treating with your kids, to an adults only party, or just feel like dressing up for the fun of it, here are some fun and fabulous ideas that can be put together last minute!
1) Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's

What you need: Little black dress, black elbow length gloves, black heels, stack of faux pearls, hair in a bun. Tiara Optional. (Skip the cigarette holder, ladies. Smoking is never pretty)
2) Marionette/Doll

What you need: Any flouncy dress/tutu will work. Here, Heather repurposes an Alice in Wonderland costume; add cute tights, elbow length gloves and heels. Curl hair, and fluff it out; add a headband, red circles on cheeks and red lips.
3) Joel Goodson (Risky Business) - Great for Men or Women

What you need: Simply, a long-sleeved men's button down shirt, white socks, and sunglasses (optional). (Add shorts underneath for modesty)
4) Got face paint? When in doubt, be Batman.

What you need: A long white t-shirt (nearly knee length is a great option), white/yellow/or orange tights, yellow and orange paint, and a sponge or paintbrush. Don't worry about actually tie-dying. Simply create the ombre effect by painting the colors with a sponge or paintbrush.
