Last minute Halloween

We here at Rockabilly Pinup are all up in a tizzy over Halloween!  We've been racking our brains for days trying to decide on the perfect Halloween costume, but we have been so spoiled for choice! We also wanted to have a costume that we could put together from our own closet, and look stylish in, so we sat down and came up with 4 costume ideas from classic to the more unusual and are now sharing them with you.

We can't think of a more appropriate Halloween costume than a witch! The novelty print dress is full of seasonal spirit, but if you are a Rockabella of a creepy bent, you can wear it the year round. If you don't have a Halloween print dress on hand, a simple black dress will do. All this outfit really needs is a small witch hat. The broom is entirely optional.

The Mime is always a very easy last-minute costume to put together. All you really need is a striped top, a beret and a bandanna. You can even forgo the white face paint and opt for a more toned-down look.  You can swap out this dress for a pair of capris and one of our striped tops for a more authentic look.

Alice in wonderland is a great example of a small white cocktail apron doing wonders (we refuse to apologize for this pun).  Any dress in a solid blue or teal colour will do, and if you don't have a pair of queen of hearts heels, you can always make do with a pair of flats. Tuck a pair of playing cards in the waistband of the apron and tie a white ribbon as an Alice band, and you're good to go!

We left the Little Red Riding Hood for last. The owl and forest themed dress, paired with a wicker basket and a red hooded cape may not be the easiest costume to pull together last minute, but any of our pretty  patterned dresses combined with a red hood will do. Now all you need is your big bad wolf!
