Some of the most popular and stylish Halloween costumes for women this year are those we see frequently on TV or movie screens.
First of all, what could be more trendy than a Lady Gaga costume? No matter what your age, you can have loads of fun dressing in this new celebrity’s flamboyant style.Many stores are selling Halloween versions of her eclectic clothing and accessories. However, an appropriate costume is simple to make.
Take a flowing dress, tear or cut it in strategic places to show legs and other body parts. Get a cheap eye mask, cut it in half, paste on some glitter and wear it that way. Find or buy a pair of shoes with very high heels, add glitter and try to get around in them on Halloween events.
You’ll need a banded hat with as many large, colorful feathers you can attach, and under it, the largest, most flamboyant blond wig you can find. If you’re very, very daring, wear a brassiere on the outside of your dress. And don’t forget to glue more glitter all over.
For women between the ages of 18 and 98, there are other instantly recognizable show business stars to copy. Those from yesteryear who are instantly recognizable by their typical costumes could be fun to imitate. Consider Marilyn Monroe, Mae West, Judy Garland in Dorothy’s Oz costume and Shirley Temple in her role from “On the Good Ship Lollypop”.
A military uniform can be very trendy this year. If you have a loved one in the service now or relatives who spent time in the military in earlier days, a costume is waiting for you to proudly show your support for our men and women serving today.
It would be fun if you can get uniforms from WWI or WWII, or even great great grandpop’s Civil War gray or blue. You may prefer the fake uniform that’s common to all services today, the camo outfit. Dress it up with a camo hat or helmet and combat boots. Add all the rank stripes and brass you can find, as well as unit patches, pins and campaign ribbons.
There’s an almost limitless choice of the trendiest Halloween costumes for women this year. Whether you decide on a currently-hot celebrity or a past or present GI.
