Halloween is this weekend!!!!! Do you have your costume?
If you don’t, that’s OK! Here are some really quick fandom costumes you can put together with pieces from your closet or easy finds at a local store!
Femme 11th Doctor; Matt Smith had some of the hippest costuming in Doctor Who history, so of course, his outfits are some of the most recreated for cons and Halloween. It helps that it is easily translated for us ladies! All you need is a white button down blouse, a pair of shorts, red suspenders and a red bow tie, topped with a fez! And if you are a good Whovian, you already have your Sonic handy. Easy peasy!
Lumpy Space Princess; God I love this character! She sends me into a fit of hysterical laughter each time and dressing up as her is so immensely easy! All you need is a purple dress or purple top and purple skirt. Basically: find all the purple things. Get a purple wig and slap on a big foam yellow star to complete the look. And, of course, bring your best LSP attitude – lump off!
Sailor Moon; I am really loving the every day cosplay trend because you can grab any of your dresses and play them up with accessories for the easiest costume! Living Dead Clothing has the most adorable Sailor Scout dresses that you can pair with corresponding earrings, tiaras, etc. to complete the look. I especially love this bestie duo rocking the femme Tuxedo Mask!
Hogwarts Students; By far the easiest costume to put together on a budget and time crunch. I definitely rocked this look one Halloween when I was a broke grad student! Did you go to private school? Score. You just got your Hogwarts uniform. I used an old school blouse and skirt from my high school uniform and snagged a cheap gray V-neck sweater from Walmart. To add some special touches, I painted the collar in Gryffindor gold and red with fabric markers. Although, you can skip the sweater entirely like the ladies above and just rock the ties (c’mon, you know you have 1, 2 or 10 in your fandom collection).
