Do we ever lose our desire to dress up for Halloween, really? Do we ever stop liking candy? Heck, no. Halloween can be as fun to celebrate as an adult as it was when you were a kid if you and your friends are in on it together. Round up your most enthusiastic pals and get into the spirit with one of these costume ideas.
Britney through the ages
Pay homage to the iconic Ms. Spears as she pushes on into the twenty-something year of her prominent career. Think: the Toxic green snake getup, the Baby One More Time schoolgirl, the Cirus ringmaster, the Oops I did it again intergalactic jumpsuit … the possibilities are endless when it comes to Ms. Spears.
The witches from Hocus Pocus
Is there any family of witches more memorable (and lovable) than Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy in Hocus Pocus? Re-watch this nostalgic fantasy horror comedy and study the sassy, scathing, and dim trio's uber vintage wardrobes for costume inspiration. It's all about the hair and lips for this one.
Mythological creatures are fun to wear and easy to create. All you need is a white sheet, some rope, sage leaves, a bunch of grapes and your goddess 'tude. Choose from Aphrodite (Goddess of love, lust and beauty), Gaia (Goddess of the earth), Nike (Goddess of Victory) or whichever one speaks to your inner goddess.
Your favourite boy band
The Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync circa '99 had a pretty distinctive aesthetic. A group of 5 good humoured ladies would make an excellent tribute band. Just be willing and able to belt out a tune and choreographed dance or two. Halloween carolling, anyone?
Kristen Wigg and her less-than-put-together co-stars of Bridesmaids make a simple and unique costume for a crew. Go for super tacky Pink taffeta gowns, dishevelled hair and picked apart corsages.
