6 Fandom Inspired Halloween Costumes

Halloween is just around the corner and one of the best things about it are all the costume parties! Thus, I spend probably 80 % of the year thinking about various outfits I could pull off come next Halloween. However, I rarely do the Halloween costumes I really want to try because they are too demanding.

Nonetheless I wanted to show a few options for Halloween costumes.

6 Fandom Inspired Costumes

The first three more demanding ones inspired by Lagertha for Vikings, Amy Pond from Doctor Who, and the Evil Queen (aka Regina Mills) from Once upon a Time.

Lagertha is a strong warrior so comfort is key: pants and long sleeved shirt are comfortable and keep you warm in the chilly October weather. A faux fur vest is reminiscent of the ancient warrior people in Norway. Round the whole outfit up with Celtic inspired jewelry, comfy boots, and braided hair and you’ll be the most impressive viking at the party!

Amy’s look is also all about comfort – but with a mini skirt! A soft flannel shirt and a leather jacket and you’re ready to kick some dalek ass! If you have a chance, get a red wig to give the costume the final touch.

The Evil Queen is formidable yet sultry: she favors blacks and deep reds with a fair amount of bling. Black faux leather pants pair nicely with a fancy red top and chunky statement jewelry. Furthermore, it’s an outfit you could even wear to a party around the year. Remember a sleek hairdo and red lips!

If you are in a hurry and want an easier costume, here are a few options. Combine black leggings with a black top and add a headband with cat ears. Voilá – you’re a witch’s familiar!

The Queen of Hearts only needs a voluminous red dress and a little crown to be recognizable. But you can also grab a heart scepter or make one yourself if you want a little addition. And don’t forget to yell “off with their heads” a lot!

The final outfit is inspired by Disney’s Little Mermaid. Ariel’s bra can be faked with a fun sea shell top. Add a starfish barrette in your hair and some mermaid leggings you’re good to go!

What costume are you planning on wearing for Halloween?

Halloween OOTD: White Rabbit + Starbuck

I wanted to quickly share my Halloween outfits from last weekend. I went to two parties: our English student organization’s party and my friend’s party, which was so close by that I was able to attend for a little while even though I was supposed to work on my thesis. (Now I AM working on the thesis full time, hence the quick post.)

To the English students’ party I dressed up as Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrace from Battlestar Galactica, which was a costume I managed to make out of old clothes I already owned. My friend drew Kara’s tattoo on my arm with my black eyeliner. My budget this year was a big fat zero, so I was forced to be inventive, which I think turned out okay.

The second outfit, to my friend’s party, was the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. I already own a pair of bunny ears so it was a matter of putting together other items that pulled the look together. You can’t tell from the photo but I’m actually wearing a necklace with a watch and a little bottle saying “Drink Me”. Appropriate, don’t you think? ;)

Hope you all had a great Halloween!

Let me know what you dressed up as :D
