DIY Costume Round Up

26 Oct

All right dolls, Halloween is just 5 days away and we want to make sure you are all prepared for the big event. While many people joke that Halloween is just a chance for women to let their inner sex kitten out, we at JBR Clothing disagree! Halloween is a great reason to shop for dual outfits! There is nothing better than buying pieces for a Halloween costume that you can recycle for a different purpose after the holiday.

With this thought in mind, our resident buyer Rachel, has been putting together some costume ideas based off your favorite JBR dresses! We will give you a round up on what you might have missed!

This is of course one of the most iconic women of all time, Mrs. Jackie Kennedy Onassis! You can recreate this look with the Stop Staring! Flawless dress, pearls, pointed tow pumps, and the over sized sunglasses. If you want to take the look a little further, don’t forget a pill box hat and a large purse.

This is for those women who love Alice in Wonderland. You can turn yourself into The Queen of Hearts with Hell Bunny’s Poker Face dress! This dress is a fun twist on the Queen of Hearts, the dress has a deck of cards scattered all over. Add a crown and scepter and you are ready to make heads roll! If you want to take this dress a little further, go to your local gardening department and buy a pink flamingo to use as a croquet club.

Here we have a look inspired by one of the sexiest cartoon characters to ever hit the big screen, Jessica Rabbit. Take the Stop Staring! Gathered Ava in Red, add a pair of elbow length purple satin gloves, a flowing red wig, and some high pumps and you will be beating off the men all night!

You can also be one of our all time favorite Batman villains, Poison Ivy with the Stop Staring! Moda dress. Instead of trying to find a green unitard (totally scary on some!), swap out our dress and pin vines of ivy. Add a face mask, pumps and gloves, and take over the night. This could be cute if you have a die hard Batman fan in the family (think of pairing this with your son/husband/boyfriend) it could be a hit at any party!

I am sure most of you can guess what costume idea this is, the wonderful Breakfast at Tiffany’s Holly Golightly, played by Audrey Hepburn. This is most definitely a dress you will wear again, because what woman doesn’t need an LBD? Get this look with the Stop Staring! Love Fitted dress in Black. You will HAVE to have some great costume jewelry and a high and tight bun with a tiara. If you want to add a little more, be sure to carry a small white bag with a donut and a cup of coffee.

Our last costume idea is one of America’s biggest sweethearts, Miss Minnie Mouse! You can get this look by taking the Hell Bunny Cutie Pie dress, adding a pearl necklace and earrings, mouse ear headbands and black or yellow pumps. If you live somewhere that is going to be cold, you can layer with a black long sleeve and black tights to make the look more authentic.

We love all of these dresses on their own, but if it gives us a reason to make a purchase for Halloween it is even better! There is nothing worse than wanting to get into the holiday, but then ending up with an outfit you can never use again. I mean, how many of us really want to wear the same costume a few years in a row?

Be sure to share with us your Halloween DIY costume ideas! You can do this by tweeting us @vintagerevblog, or if you are creating a DIY costume based off a JBR dress, snap a photo and tag us on Instagram! We love being able to see how you get creative. You can tag us on Instagram @jbrclothing.

Have a safe and fun Halloween!

Love,

Your Vintage Revolution Team at JBR Clothing
