While this costume isn't exactly made from items sitting around my house, I'm absolutely in love with the idea of doing a sort of 60s-esque futuristic costume. That's why I went with the big, round shades and the turtleneck! I'm definitely going to have to be this for Halloween next year... Unless I get my hands on a holographic skirt by Saturday
I am in love with this novel and movie. I first read it last year around this time, and I just recently reread the book. In fact I was Alex DeLarge for a party last Friday, and it turned out wonderfully. Granted no one knew who I was, which was a downside. I kept hearing,"Did you forget to do one eye of makeup or something?" Sigh. Anyway, if you haven't seen/read A Clockwork Orange, I completely recommend it. Whether you're a malchikiwick or a young devotchka, get together with your droogs and just put together an all-white outfit at the heigth of fashion, a black hat upon your gulliver, a black staff to hold your nozh, and don't forget your black boots to take part in a little of the ultra-violence. ;)
This is not your typical witch outfit. This is inspired by the new season of American Horror Story; Zoe wears something similar to this in the first episode, and I fell in love with her outfit the first moment I saw it. Wear all black with a pointed booty to pull in the witchy vibe, and don't forget your wide-rimmed, black hat and smoky eye!
So this one may seem lackluster compared to the other four, but I promise it isn't! It's a dual costume. You can be either an elf or a hippie, depending on your preference. A hippie would add maybe a head wrap and sandals, whereas an elf would add a cape and elf ears. It's adjustable to your preferences!
These are some different costumes I put together that you can create with things (mostly) out of your closet. I hope it helps some last minute people like myself! I'll talk to you guys soon. :)
