Best Halloween Costume Ideas 2014

Can you believe it's already late October? Summer seemed to go by in a wink, and now that fall is here, it's time to start getting together Halloween costumes!

Flapper Girl

Someone said something to me the other day that absolutely blew my mind: In a few short years, it will be the 20's again! As in, the 2020's. This makes me think of the style and glamour of the 1920's - the Great Gatsby parties, prohibition, and of course flapper girl dresses! I've always wanted to dress up as a flapper girl for Halloween, and haven't quite gotten around to it yet.

Britney Spears

Because everyone loves a good Britney costume - straight from her first single, this schoolgirl outfit is so fun! Don't forget the pink scrunchies!

Maleficent

Let's be honest, Angelina brought back Sleeping Beauty this summer with Maleficent's side of the story. She's one of the costumes I expect to see a lot of this year. My roommates and I are going as Disney villans, and I chose Maleficent since I love the story of Sleeping beauty!

Ariel

Who hasn't wanted to be Ariel at one point or another? She's a mermaid! She can swim all she wants, and has gorgeous flowing hair. Yes please.

Marie Antoinette

From the big dresses to the big hair, there's just something fun about the extravagance of women's fashion during the French Revolution. The style is so romantic and feminine.

Cleopatra

After watching The Mummy Returns on tv yesterday, I have a newfound need to dress in everything that is Ancient Egypt - the snakes, the gold, the cats! Cleopatra was a strong woman figure before it was cool.

Princess Anna

As a Disney lover, I have to include a Frozen outfit in my Halloween post! I enjoyed Princess Anna's character much more than Elsa's - Anna was fun, quirky and relatable.

  1. I love these suggestions, especially the Flapper girl and Britney Spears. I dread buying costumes and not being able to wear the pieces again, so I prefer those that I know I can add to my closet. I never thought that we'll soon be hitting the 20s again!

  8. I'm keeping mine secret, but it's definitely not as elaborate as these! It's a tad generic, but I'll hopefully have a lot of make up fun. :)

  24. I love the Frozen one!! I can't wait to see your pictures from Halloween. I'm not a big Halloween fan, but I loved the idea of dressing up for a blog post and I love costumes that are home made and made out of things you already have in your closet.
