Fashionable Halloween Costume Ideas!


With Halloween almost upon us, it’s time once again to rack your brain and raid your local thrift store in an attempt to come up with an amazing costume to wow your friends and neighbors. If you’ve ruled out going as Harry Potter or a sexy nurse, then why not go as your favorite fashion world figure? With fashion insiders themselves often straddling the razor-thin line between glamorous trendsetter and Zoolander-esque parody, this would appear to be a ripe area to exploit for an attractive yet humorous costume.
If you grab a couple of friends and some black Goth wigs, the MisShapes should be easy enough to pull off. With a powdered ponytail, loads of fake rings, and dark sunglasses, you could own Karl Lagerfeld – just make sure to suck in your cheeks and speak with a bad accent all night. Unless you already have a figure like one of the “girls”, attempting an Irina L. or an Irina K. may be ill-advised however…

  • Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t you go to Sweden to take photos of Swedish fashonistas? When are you going to show them? My friend was one of them.

  • Hey – well I love Swedish fashionistas, but I haven’t been there lately. You may be thinking of another blog perhaps? Hmm…Sweden…to shoot streetstyle photos…that sounds like a good idea!

  • That’s strange, because my friend was photografed last friday, and she got a card wich led us to this sight…

  • lol you have inspired me to go as anna wintour this year! thanks so much! i was at a loss at what to be!

  • maybe i’ll be anna wintour for halloween… thanks for the inspiration!

  • I think going as Anna W. is an amazing Halloween costume idea – I flipped out when I saw this “Anna” above! Have fun guys. Please note – I think the above Anna is actually carrying a copy of British Vogue – a serious costume faux pas. I’m sure I can count on you guys to do this one better.

  • Hi – yes I shot photos at that party…but then decided I was over Halloween…so I never posted them. Sorry to disappoint…
