Friday Favorites #108: Halloween Costume Inspiration

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday; not only is it right around my birthday, but are you surprised that I love a day that's all about playing dress-up? This week's Friday Favorites post is all about Halloween outfit inspiration. I love being able to take pieces already in my closet and make a unique costume from them!

Although I'm usually much more drawn towards the '50s and '60s, this year, I'm going '20s! I'm totally obsessed with Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, and this year, I'm being Phryne Fisher for Halloween! You'll see my actual costume here on the blog soon, but in the meantime, here are some of my favorite flapper pieces:

Storybook characters are probably my favorites for costume ideas, which is what made me think of this simple (yet effective) Alice in Wonderland idea. I'd probably use all of these pieces on a regular basis, which makes it even better!

Since I had a nod to Cinderella in my last post, I thought making an actual costume out of the same dress would be fun! It only needed a few small tweaks, really.

I love this Birthday Barbie costume idea!

When I first saw this Dee Dee colorway, I immediately thought of Dorothy Gale – so why not use it for a Wizard of Oz-inspired get-up?

Or if you're not into wearing a costume but still want to get into the Halloween spirit, here are some fun options to try!

And finally, some spooky + kooky bags!
