Here at Karmaloop we’re pretty comfortable spending money on some crazy things; hamburger beanbag chairs, slime covered Litas, and bras with gold spikes are all totally valid and awesome purchases. However, with that being said, I still have trouble spending anywhere from $50-$200 for store bought costumes like a sexy nurse, sexy fairy, or sexy devil, really anything you can imagine with “sexy” added to it. I am literally never going to wear barely there scrubs or a tutu any of the other 364 days of the year and that’s frustrating. Then I realized I can have the best of both worlds (RIP Hannah Montana), I can get a rad costume AND have rad clothes I’ll enjoy long after October 31st. Below are just a few examples of costumes you can rock this Halloween available at Karmaloop.
Forget “Versace, Versace, Versace” it’s all about “Gucci, Gucci, Louis, Louis, Fendi, Fendi, Prada.” Don’t lie; we all have moments of wanting to dress like Kreayshawn, well here’s your chance. Over the top cat eye eyeliner is a must.
Unlike media hermit Kim Kardashian, Nicki has yet to have a butt x-ray confirming her natural curves; so it’s totally fine for you to add some padding to these insane jumpsuits. Grab a giant pastel wig and maybe Lil Wayne will discover you too.
Pack on the white powder to achieve Wednesday’s pallor and of course don’t forget those signature braids. I mean come on, this dress is called The UNIF Wednesday Dress, it’s practically begging to be your costume.
“Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!” Conjuring Beetlejuice in real life is almost that easy with this costume. Use black eyeliner or shadow to create large circles around your eyes and use our green hair chalk at your roots to get that perfect undead look. As Internet memes have I’m sure already informed you, this costume can also double for Robin Thicke at the VMAs, grab a friend who can’t stop to be your Miley.
No, not Sabrina, go a little darker and a little more satanic with these cool looks that will look mystical-witchy-cool way after Halloween (I still love you Sabrina). Black lipstick and nails will bring you even closer to your inner witch, and why not grab a broomstick while you’re at it?
These cool pieces + this tutorial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVn0AFXTsHc) = you good to go with an unforgettable costume. ~bonus points for being super warm and comfy~
Warning: if you run into Azealia Banks, be prepared to be accused of stealing her aesthetic all over Twitter (I’m looking at you Rihanna). Wear your hair in two buns and look for some gems or a bindi to stick to your forehead.
The grunge trend is EVERYWHERE, but take it to the next level by wearing it head to toe and boom you’ve got a costume. Add to your look with vampy lips and unwashed, unkempt hair. A flannel on your body as well as tied around your waist is highly encouraged. If you want to be train wreck/one of my all-time girl crushes Courtney Love, smear red lipstick on and around your mouth and throw on a disheveled tiara.
P.S The Jeffrey Campbell Mulder Platforms are obsession worthy and worth centering any costume around. Shout out to “The X Files.”
Like grunge, punk is everywhere. With this costume you’ll have tons of pieces that go from cool streetwear separately to a kickass costume all together. Swap out your stud earrings for safety pins and pile on the black eyeliner and there you go, you’re Nancy Spungen.
Make cool Halloween costumes not war.
High times and high points for this costume. Be inspired by legends like Spicoli and Cheech and Chong. Just be mindful of the visibility of your costume through the inevitable cloud of smoke around you.
