Wicked Costumes
Looking for an original costume idea? Browse through some looks from the Polyvore community. You can DIY an awesome Halloween outfit from what you already have in your closet. The community has tips on how to put together looks featuring flappers, Katniss Everdeen and even classic characters like Minnie Mouse. For a fast-and-easy approach, you can always buy an amazing ready-to-wear costume on Polyvore as well. If you’re not into playing dress-up, you can still get into the spirit of All Hallow’s Eve--try an orange graphic sweater with a black leather skater skirt, festively funky tights and black boots.
Bewitching Beauty
Now’s the time to bust out some playful nail art--cobwebs, candy corn, and pointy black nails are some favorites. You’ll find nail polish, nail accessories like stickers and press-on nails and manicure recommendations. You can recreate the looks at home (or take nail inspo photos to your local nail salon). Halloween is also the perfect holiday to rev up the drama in the makeup department, whether you’re taking a walk on the goth side with black lipstick, pale powder and dramatic eyeliner or playing up color in a big ‘80s sort of way. For something a little different, consider Day of the Dead looks which manage to look pretty, artistic and appropriately on-point for the haunted holiday.
Devilish Decor
Some people think All Hallow’s Eve should be year-round! Indulge your orange crush by incorporating it into your home decor. Pumpkin-hued curtains and throws can bring warmth to your living room for the whole fall season. For the bolder decorator, a statement piece like an orange couch can add personality to any room. For holiday-specific accents, take your pick from stylish to ultra-kitsch. Glossy white ceramic pumpkins and autumnal candles are lovely at an elegant soiree. For a more quirky and playful vibe, go batty with decorations featuring witches, monsters and skeletons. There’s no end to fun party supplies: paper straws, cupcake liners, candy molds, linens and serveware are just a few of the touches that will make for a memorable party. Trick or treat? We’ll choose treat, thanks!
