Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Tina Belcher

Easy enough to find the simple pieces in the back of your closet, and then all you need to add is the swagger.

Jen Barber

Many ladies already have work clothes like Jen, and the vest is nice but not absolutely necessary since she does not always wear it.

Max Black

Max has a very awesome and easy to put together wardrobe. The main things are including a stretch belt, cat eyeliner, and red lipstick.

Clara Oswald

Another awesome everygirl character, Clara wears a lot of dresses, tights, and a cross-body bag.

Peggy Carter

This is basically nice work clothes and styling your hair and makeup for the 1940s.

Mackenzie McHale

Classic well made pieces, blazers, and express things with your hands while trying on your British accent.

Gwen Stacy

Simple, elegant, with a little bit of 60s thrown in. Pull out the darkest widest headband in your stash and you are mostly there.

Jemma Simmons

Collars, sweaters, ponytail, and an enthusiasm for science.

Garfunkel and Oates

Cute best friends costume, bonus points if you can get your hands on a Ukulele.

Pitch Perfect

Each of these ladies is amazing, and this would also be a fun group costume.

Once Upon a Time

So many fairy tale characters to choose from, this show provides inspiration to shop our closets and come up with something fun for Halloween:)

5 Fandom Friday: My Favorite Alfred Hitchcock Films for Halloween

I am not so big on scary Hitchcock ( or really scary anything ), so for Halloween I count any of his films as appropriate to watch in honor of the holiday.

Thelma Ritter steals every scene she is in, and is one of my favorite character actors.

Claude Rains is a Nazi ruled by his mother, and this makes him so much more creepy.

Michael Redgrave proves here that he would have been an excellent choice to be one of the faces of The Doctor on Doctor Who.

This is an odd one, even for Hitchcock, and I love it.

Cary Grant and James Mason have a battle to determine who has the most charm.

5 Fandom Friday: Characters I’d Love To Dress Up As For Halloween

Since the beginning of October, I have resolved to put together and share a cosplay/costume a day until the end of the month. There are so many awesome characters out there for us ladies to dress up as for Halloween instead of the uninspired and generally ultra sexed up choices found at the costume stores. My frustration at the limited selection available to us made me realize that if I can share a better class of costume, which are infinitely more comfortable and fun to wear, than I shall do my best to put them out there. These five selections are my favorites of the series so far:)

Lady Halloween Cosplay – Tess McGill from Working Girl

Dress, Necklace, Shoes, Clutch, Hose

I was inspired to put this Tess outfit together after seeing the season premiere of Bob’s Burgers which features musical versions of Working Girl and Die Hard. It was excellently and hilariously done, and I love the original movies as well. They truly are 80’s sister movies! Now I need to work on a Holly McClane cosplay.

Lady Halloween Cosplay – Flora Poste from Cold Comfort Farm

Blazer, Shirt, Vest, Barrette, Beanie, Belt, Henley, Skirt, Gloves, Shoes

Cold Comfort Farm is one of those gems that never gets old. Kate Beckinsale,Rufus Sewell, Ian McKellen, Stephen Fry, and Joanna Lumley go about being incredibly British and quote-worthy. “I saw something nasty in the woodshed.” “Seth, drain the well, there’s a neighbor missing.”
