four examples of fall fashion that will be made into halloween costumes

How to Make a Halloween Costume from Fall Fashions

Make a Halloween costume out of clothes from your favorite stores to wear those pieces again during the fall and winter.  Here is some inspiration.

It makes more sense to buy a costume you can wear more than once. Look for items from the clothes and accessories section that can be fashioned into a Halloween costume of sorts.

Since it’s Slut-o-ween now might be a good time to pick up a new piece of lingerie. Or layer over a scandalous cocktail dress that leaves little to the imagination. The more you accessorize the realer it looks. If it’s cold outside wear an oversized statement coat that fits the costume.

Here are four examples of Halloween costumes you can wear throughout autumn as styled by Slutty Raver Costumes. Click on the links to learn where to buy each product.

Teddy Bear

Keep it cozy in a teddy bear coat with animal ears. You could substitute the faux suede dress set for an actual teddy, if you are hardcore enough. Over the knee boots in a neutral color suit many other fall outfits. The headband keeps hair out of your face while you apply makeup.

S&M Pumpkin

This Jack O’Lantern is a creepy and cute. Layer a faux leather harness over a latex dress for a look that is sadomasochistic. The velvet beret is perfect for fall and winter. These platform booties are made by the same brand that designed platform sneakers for the Spice Girls in the 90’s.

Candy Corn Queen

If you buy this men’s candy corn shirt two sizes up it will look like an oversized tee for less money. Look for yellow bottoms, such as hight waist skinny ankle jeans in yellow. This sequin candy corn crossbody is perfect for Halloween as long as you don’t mind using your own kind as a handbag.

Feminist Witch

The witch is the most popular Halloween costume for women every year. Not only is it easy to pull off with a little black dress, but it has deep significance in the history of the feminist movement. The witch costume represents our fear of powerful women and the unknown.
