creepy costumes: black is back

For the next part of this costume series, I figured I'd show you some ideas for costumes using a little black dress in contrast with the LWD post I did on Sunday. First off is a costume I think is a classic and one that I see every year, but on a very limited number of people, making it a good choice! That costume is: Wednesday Addams! Start with a long sleeved dress, wear a collared shirt under it, pair with black stocking and combat boots, and top it all off with those famous middle-parted pigtail braids, and you'll be saying that murder is on your mind in no time! *Alternatively, some dresses already come with white collars & cuffs! A personal favorite costume of mine is one of Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's (go watch it right now). I think it's timeless, classy, and extremely elegant, not to mention easily recognized and cute! If you have a floor length blackdress, use that, but if not, start with a spaghetti / thin strapped black dress. Add long white gloves, a small tiara pushed in your hair, a thick strand of pearls, and almond toes heels. Finish with a big pair of black shades and a thin, long cigarette and you're (movie) gold. The final costume I have to show you today is a referee! This one is very simple as well, making it a good last minute choice. Start with a body-con or tight dress and simply add a striped (either vertically or horizontally striped, though vertical makes it look more obvious) blazer, a pair of white with black stripes knee socks, comfy white sneakers, and a whistle and you're done. Complete the look with any accessories you think would work well i.e. a hat, penalty cards, and a sports ball.

Which of the LBD looks are your fav? Planning to try any of them out this season? Let me know in the comments below!
