Whether you’re a natural redhead, owner of a red wig or just looking for an excuse to dye your hair this Halloween, look to these famous redheaded characters for the perfect Halloween costume idea.
Anne of Green Gables
Create a Halloween costume based on the Canadian school girl, made famous by the classic book series by the same name. Wear your hair braided into two long pigtails and top with a straw hat. Wear a long jumper style dress over a long-sleeved t-shirt. Finish the look with tights and boots.
Look to Lucille Ball’s character on “I Love Lucy” for a Halloween costume inspired by the famous red head. Recreate Lucy’s short, curly red hairdo and wear a 50s style clothing. Think full skirts, aprons and short sleeved dresses. Browse photos from the show for more ideas.
Dress as the redhead from the German movie “Run Lola Run.” Lola has short, very bright Cherry-Kool-Aid colored hair. The ridiculously bright shade of red hair is important for this Halloween costume, since Lola’s grey cropped tank top and green belted pants aren’t too distinctive.
Dress up as the redheaded teen from the 90s T.V. show “My So Called Life.” Angela sports shoulder length dark-red hair and a grunge style. Pair a button down floral dress with an over-sized plaid shirt. Or try a loose fitting plaid dress paired with black tights and boots. Check out some photos of the show for more inspiration.
Become the rebellious and lovable girl of literary fame for Halloween. Pipi wears her hair in pigtails that stick straight out from the sides of her head. Go for plain red pigtails if this hairstyle proves too hard to recreate. Wear mismatched knee socks and a dress or skirt and t-shirt covered with patches.
Become famed redhead Daphne from “Scooby Doo” for Halloween. Daphne’s hair is orange-red, wavy and secured with a purple headband. She wears a short purple dress with matching purple shoes and a green scarf tied around her neck.
