Cindy Lou Who Costume

How cute is Cindy Lou Who in the Grinch cartoon and in the movie? She is also so recognizable because of her hair so I knew it would be a popular costume. This wig is so character specific that it can’t be used for other costumes but you can wear it again in December! Wig and shawl linked below!

*I found that the Amazon reviews about this wig being small were unfortunately accurate. The wig is more on the snug side and it never felt like it was *on* my head tight enough. Luckily, I only needed for a quick photo but if you are wearing this out and about for a costume, give yourself some time to receive and make sure it fits you*

Ace Ventura Costume

2021 is definitely the year that I embrace all the male characters. For my 4th (but not final) male character I went with the iconic Ace Ventura Pet Detective. I recently watched this movie and it still holds up as hilarious nearly 30 years later. It’s hard to find good “bag costumes” but I was pretty impressed with this one. I love this costume because it came with everything, including the wig (no boots but any black combat style will work. Be sure to check out Goodwill if you don’t own any).

Marilyn Monroe Costume

Few images and people are as iconic as Marilyn Monroe in her white dress. I knew  I worked with California Costumes last year and I was so excited to team up with them again. My Marilyn dress and wig are both from California Costumes which I have linked below. I have a few more in queue for 2021 featuring their characters but in the meantime take a look back at last years – Cruella, Poison Ivy & Evelyn’s Little Mermaid.

California Costumes has an Amazon store now, making their costumes even easier to get in time for Halloween!

Marge Simpson Costume

The Simpsons is considered not only one of the best cartoons ever but is also the longest-running American sitcom ever. Marge Simpson is such a iconic character that literally people of all ages know, even if they don’t watch the show. Since I had to transform into a yellow cartoon, I enlisted my makeup artist extraordinaire, Britney, to create this look. I didn’t know how this character would translate into real life but she nailed the makeup and I was so happy with the costume pieces, which by the way are all from Amazon. Shocker. Everything is linked below!

The Joker Halloween Costume

The Dark Knight is one of the best Batman/Joker films ever. Due largely in part to Heath Ledger’s incredible performance. I knew last year I wanted to add the Joker to the lineup this year. The costume is incredibly functional and comfortable. All items are from Amazon and the makeup is best sloppy and messy so literally anyone can recreate this look.

Coraline Halloween Costume

Raise your hand if Coraline still kind of freaks you out? When I first saw this film I thought it was going to be a fun family movie but I was very wrong. Random fact but so many people attribute this movie to Tim Burton because of its creepiness but it’s not a Burton film at all.  Even if you haven’t seen Coraline most people know the character and this is an easy one to recreate. I bought everything off Amazon, linked below!

Wayne’s World Costume

Wayne’s World is such an easy costume to recreate for couples, friends, siblings … and the characters seem to be relevant with every generation. I knew this easy costume would be super iconic and resonate well with followers. I enlisted my Halloween loving friend, Loren, to stand in as the roll of Garth and she understood the assignment! She made the perfect Garth and I think I pulled off Wayne pretty well! You can shop both of our costumes below! Party On!
