Happy Halloween Everyone! I hope you either managed to celebrate this past weekend, or have some spooky plans to celebrate the holiday tonight! If anything, I wanted to make sure you had the opportunity, at least, to enjoy some Halloween spirit via this post.
FABULOUS HALLOWEEN COSTUMES
1. Lauren Conrad as Mary Poppins
I mean, any costume that you can incorporate a Chanel bag is absolutely brilliant. Dressing up as Mary Poppins is not only original, but so adorable and clever! The next night, she chose to go in another costume direction… dressing up like an insanely creepy and scary ghost. (photos courtesy of LaurenConrad.com and The Examiner)
2. Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie as Skeletons/Dios De Los Muertos
I love how they dressed up as skeletons with a different cultural holiday influence for halloween. Still spooky and very creative. The face paint on Hilary Duff is fierce! (photos courtesy of ATRL.net and Entertainment Wise)
3. Shenae Grimes as Frankie Stein from Monster High
Not only does this costume encompass halloween entirely, it’s funky edge and oh, custom made. Yes, this costume was designed by Project Runway Alum Chris March exclusively for Shenae to wear. (Images courtesy of Teen Vogue and Google Images)
4. Jessica Alba, Cash Warren and daughters Honor & Haven (not pictured) as the Incredibles
This is just cute. That’s all. (photo courtesy of Huffington Post)
5. Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough as Bonnie & Clyde
Anytime you can cleverly incorporate your pets into your costume, you’re winning points with me. I also have to give this duo kudos for looking identical to the original Bonnie & Clyde. (photos courtesy of Us Magazine)
Sarah Hyland created a costume as Spinelli from Recess, Stacy Keibler dressed us as the Black Swan (that costume will never get old), and Liam Payne (from One Direction) sported a pretty intense batman costume.
SPOOKY HALLOWEEN TREATS
If you choose to stay in or go out for halloween, it’s always fun to cook halloween-themed treats. From “Mummies” to “Eyeballs” with some “Worms & Zombie Brains,” and “ghosts” for dessert, a fun themed dinner is the perfect way to get into the spirit of halloween! (And if all else fails, you could always just drink
“blood” — wine for adults, cranberry juice for kids.)
Another great way to get into the Halloween spirit (and equally freak yourself out) is to watch a halloween classic movie like Hocus Pocus, or a scary one — Paranormal Activity 4, anyone? If you know you won’t be able to sit through an entire scary movie without having a heart attack, or start crying– Here’s the trailer to watch and then you can call it good.
Hopefully now you feel like you’ve gotten to experience some of the halloween spirit– but, really the best way to celebrate halloween is to wear a costume while watching a scary movie, munching your delicious halloween-inspired snacks (or drinking your blood) and staring at that ah-mazing diamond Damien Hurst Skull featured on The Coveteur (and in this post’s featured image).
Happy Halloween! XX
