I adore this cute + easy Minnie costume! I'd definitely have to add tights and a cardigan, though.

|My novelty purses sure come in handy at a time like this! I thought going as a sweet treat might be a fun idea. The blue dress (which has a print of shells, seahorses and fish) would be great for a mermaid or even the ocean -- or if you're a redhead, you could be Miss Frizzle! All the red dress needs is a blonde curly wig for a Goldilocks costume!|

|Our theme here was Myths & Monsters! I decided to be Monster Energy Drink. I loved my headband!|
|Our senior year Waggies theme was Drink of Choice - mine was the Mudslide (and again, my favorite part was the hat!).|
|We dressed up as Looney Toons/Hanna-Barbera cartoons one Halloween, and I chose Hong Kong Phooey.|
|Sophomore year Halloween was candy-themed. These were all pieces I already had, and I think I even made the York logo out of a blue plastic binder cover and White-Out! We were robbed in the costume competition!|
|Our Waggies theme was the United States one year, and my mom and I made this Declaration of Independence dress out of an old bed sheet. I did all the lettering by hand, which was fun. This was probably my favorite costume idea!|

What I liked about both of these costumes is that, like the ones at the beginning of this post, they used existing clothes in my closet and used them in a different way to create a costume look. I wish I had had a little neck scarf (and better hair) for the sock hop look, but it'd work in a pinch! I love this cupcake dress by Nishe, and I found a headband in a Storenvy shop that worked perfectly with it. I already had the white tights and shoes as well. I already spend a fairly substantial amount on my wardrobe, so it seems silly to me to spend a lot of money on a Halloween costume when I have a chance to use my wardrobe in a creative way! Plus, I have a ton of quirky pieces that really lend themselves well to being part of a costume.
What about you? Do you like to buy a new costume every year, or do you like to create one from pieces you already own? Tell me what you're being for Halloween so I can live vicariously!
Have a great day & a spook-tacular Halloween!
