Retro Halloween Costume Ideas

or copy the link

Halloween is almost here! Do you need a costume idea beyond a pinup girl (you probably rock this look on a regular basis) or the costumes found at the store?  Here are some clever ideas to get your imagination going.  If you dress up, send me a pic and I may post it!


Tippy Hedron in “The Birds”

I love this! This is one of the first “scary” movies I was allowed to watch, and while not “scary”, it did freak me out a bit as a kid.  I’ve even done a painting paying a little homage to Tippy and the birds. 😉


Black and white silent movie actors

All black, white and grey clothes, a little white makeup and you are good to go!


Jackie O

Raid a vintage store for an old coat or dress and a pillbox hat.  A square purse and some heels and you have transformed to the first lady!


Rosie the Riveter

Denim and a red bandanna – doesn’t get any easier than that!

We can do it!

Frida Kahlo

Use what you have – colorful skirt, peasant top, shawl, lots of chunky jewelry, and of course flowers in your hair and a little makeup to accentuate your eyebrow(s).  😉


Audrey Hepburn

A little black dress, a big black hat, sunglasses, blinged out jewelry and a cigarette holder.  Pretty do-able.


Wednesday Addams

The most important accessory for this costume is a straight face 🙂
