Three quick ideas for Halloween costumes you can whip up with a couple of truly amazing buys on Etsy!
1. Be a pretty unicorn lady!
Being a unicorn lady doesn't take much effort. Just toss on a crown with a horn like the one by Frecklesfairychest, a delicate white dress, and you're prettymuch done! If you want to go the extra mile, go ahead and splurge on the horn & ears piece by idolatre or get mysterious with the mask/horn combo by DragonsLairMasks. Whichever way you go, remember that unicorns are delicate creatures. Pastels and perhaps some pretty hair extensions will rock this look better than My Little Pony ever dreamed of ;)
2. Do the mermaid thing!
Being a mermaid is not for little girls! It's a look that can easily go from beautiful to sexy with just a few easy details. If you're looking for a school appropriate version of this look, try the leggings or the fishtail skirt by CoquetryClothing. Going for something a little more "college party"? AliciaZenobia's scaley hot pants have got you covered.
As for tops, it's really up to you. You can either go the DIY way or slip your tatas into something readymade. For beautiful & fancy, check out SeaGypsyGifts's shell top. If you're more about that sexy club scene, go for SXYfitness's metallic bandeau top.
Probably the best part about being a mermaid is all of that glitter! Yes I'm talking about body glitter, metallic eyeshadow, and pretty starfish hair accessories. Yes, that means it's time to pull out your favorite glitter nail polish too!
3. If you have a partner in crime, there's nothign more glamorous than Bonnie & Clyde
Let's start from the top. Unless you're the proud owner of a fabulous blonde mikado (bob), you're probably gonna need a nice sleek wig. Check! Next, there is no Bonnie without a fabulous white beret. There are many online, but this one is just the right style for wearing throughout the winter even after Halloween (think adorable snow bunny look!).
Top right is a pretty shawl in red. In the movie Bonnie's shawl is more of a navy blue, but don't be afraid to have fun with the look. Besides, the red can match your nails and shoes if you're into that;)
Do not forget to accessorize with this outfit, and that counts for the both of you! This outfit is absolutely killer with a pair of shotgun cufflinks and earrings. That's right, I said killer. Now fill in the gaps with a vintage sweater, pencil skirt, and a men's brown fedora and you are good to go. If you really want to go the extra mile, try showing off this gun garter belt by TheRitzyRose.
