My pumpkins are carved, the temperatures have dropped, and warm apple cider has become a nightly staple of mine (screw the glass of wine). October is coming to a close (tear) and November is creeping around the corner, which means, holy hell, Halloween is in one week. Have you given any thought to your costume? I have a party to make an appearance at this Saturday and the last thing I want is to be Snooki, The Situation, or Lady Gaga. So this past weekend, I rubbed a couple of brain cells together and came up with three costume ideas, ones that might require thought at first but after the impersonation is figured out, are creative, different, fun, and sarcastic.
Mary Quant, inventor of the mini dress. All I would need is my shortest dress and my highest heels. And I would avoid prints. A color-blocked look would be best.
Princess Beatrice, cousin of Prince William (who attended Kate and William’s wedding wearing this absurd ensemble). I’d probably have to make such a gigantic and ridiculous hat but the impersonation would be oh so clever.
Sylvia Weinstock, master cake baker. I love her style and must admit that if I found glasses similar to hers, I might be guilty of wearing them not just for Halloween.
