Halloween Outfit & Costume Ideas


Halloween is right around the corner and even though I don’t celebrate the actual holiday, due to beliefs, I do still love the idea of dress up being acceptable. I always love creating outfits and even as a child I loved dressing up as a princess, which is why for Halloween I prefer to choose the less spooky options for my costumes. Black cats for Halloween can be deemed as a bit scary, but as I’m very much a cat person and adore them, I don’t see it that way in the slightest.

Last year, I dressed as a cat for my Halloween costume, and this year I was deciding between four different looks. A cat again, but with different accessories, Tinkerbell, Belle or Jessica Rabbit. If I could, I would definitely choose Tinkerbell or Belle. It’s always been a dream of mine to dress as these two characters and I am hoping when I eventually get to go to Disneyland I might be able to! I haven’t been able to find a costume that looked good enough to qualify as these two characters though and I don’t think I would suit Jessica Rabbit since I’m blonde, so I decided on being a cat again. Unlike my last outfit though where I just wore a pair of ears with a black top and skinny jeans, I’m actually going all out and wearing the look I created above! I’ve ordered the tail, gloves and bow tie to go with my shiny leggings, knee high boots and faux leather peplum top. I’m also planning on having red lipstick and cat like eyes. I have to say I am most excited by wearing a tail though, ha ha! I’ve always thought they were fun!

What are you planning on dressing as for Halloween? I know a lot of people end up leaving it last minute like I did last year, but I decided to be prepared this time. If you are looking for some Halloween costume inspiration, there are tonnes of ideas around or you could check out the seasons costume suggestions here, as I often find it good looking at individual pieces to start with, like wigs and then choosing your outfit around that. It can be a great source of inspiration! Do any of you like to dress as black cats or are you thinking about doing a Disney character this year for Halloween? Comment and let me know!

    I already did my Halloween dressing up last weekend. I’m always more of a Marvel, DC, tv shows/movie girl if it’s about dressing up. So I did Harley Quinn this year! (which was actually for a convention but that doesn’t matter haha) I really like the cat costume you got together, even though you don’t celebrate!

      Lol! That’s funny because I was thinking of doing a game/superhero character. How did your outfit turn out as Harley Quinn? Good?

    I’m not one for spooky costumes either and in fact, I usually dress as something boy-ish LOL. This year I don’t have any plans so while I hand out candy, I’ll probably just wear my Black Milk Muscle & Bone catsuit with a t-shirt.

    I like to be able to incorporate my Halloween costume pieces into my every day wardrobe. A few years ago, I was a ringmaster and scored an awesome Asos tailcoat from your side of the pond! πŸ˜‰ So, I think I will plan better for next year and go as a VINTAGE Barbie!!!

    The cat costume IS a classic but I can totally see you as a Disney princess!!
