It’s almost Halloween, can you believe it? I’m absolutely clueless as to what I want to be this year and my indecisive butt can’t just make up my mind. So, I figured I’d channel some of my ideas into a blog post and maybe help anyone else out there who might be struggling to come up with a costume as well! I really, really tried to come up with 13 different ideas but this is a lot harder than it looks. Anywho, find 6 Plus Size Halloween costume ideas below!
Dress / Shoes / Knee Highs / Skull / Black Lipstick
Everyone and their mother has done Wednesday Addams but there’s a reason for that. She’s a morbid but lovable character we’d all like to channel on the scariest day of the year. It also doesn’t hurt that dressing up as Wednesday Addams doesn’t break the bank either. Sidenote: If you don’t have black hair, check out this black wig here.
Dress / Wig / Socks / Shoes / Fake Blood
Everyone fell in love with Eleven from Stranger things and I’m definitely one of those people. I’ve felt the need to dress up as (and hopefully harness some of her badassery) her since the first season, but finding that iconic pink dress has been a struggle. Torrid came out with the exact replica IN MY SIZE and I’m obsessed. Let’s be real, I’d wear this dress on an everyday basis, but why not spend Halloween as Eleven, too?
Costume / Gloves / Shoes / Lipstick / Wig / Apple
There is a very, very good chance I’ll end up going as Snow White this year. I’ve always told myself I’d dress up as the classic Disney princess but the stars have never aligned. Snow White is such an underrated princess but one of my favourites. As I was putting this together, I realized how easy getting all the essential parts are. Now all I need is my Prince Charming..
Top / Necklace / Shoes / Pants / Wooden Stake
Who doesn’t want to be Buffy The Vampire Slayer? She’s the epitome of a complex, bad ass woman and I’d kill to have that for a day. There are SO many different ways to dress as Buffy, but I settled on her classic burgundy leather pants, cross necklace and black top. Side note: Use the blonde wing from Eleven to finish off the look!
Pants / Whip / Cat Ears / Mask / Bodysuit
I’m never been a huge fan of cat woman but it only seems like a right of Halloween passage to dress up as the notorious character. Something about Cat Woman seems so fun to portray and even putting together this costume made me excited about donning her whip on Halloween. Worst case scenario, I pick up some killer pieces I could use time and time again. Sidenote: any black heeled booties or boots would make the perfect addition to this costume.
Skirt / Shoes / Glasses / Cardigan / Top
Probably the easiest of the costumes to replicate for me, seeing as my entire wardrobe looks like this. However, people typically ask if I’m going to a special event or if I’m dressed in a costume when they see me out in public in my usual getup. Why not use that to my advantage of really play the part on Halloween? Sidenote: Use my velcro roller tutorial to achieve the 1950s hair, too!
