Last-Minute Costume Ideas
There's only one more day until All Hallow's Eve is upon us, and these last-minute, simple costume ideas I've pulled together feature items that are, for the most part, closet staples. Easy-peasy, especially if, like me, you're a fellow redhead! Let's have a look, shall we?
First up - a well-loved companion of "The Doctor" - Amy Pond. There are many options when dressing up as this particular character (as a quick google image search will show you), but I picked this simple, casual look from her final appearance in the series, The Angels Take Manhattan. All you'll need is a pair of jeans, rolled up at the cuff, a striped shirt, military-inspired jacket, black glasses and black flats, preferably oxfords, if possible. Just so people will have a clue as to your costume, print out a colour copy of the "Melody Malone" cover, temporarily affix it to a paperback from your shelf and you're done.
Next up, a simple, chic look from the lovely Joan Holloway from Mad Men. There are so many directions you could go with this, but I chose one of her simpler ensembles: a pink dress, matching lip, heels, a pencil necklace, and a simple gold bracelet. Top it off with a chic 60's beehive and you're set.
Last but not least, style icon Grace Coddington. Start with skinny black trousers and a basic white blouse. Add a sparkly necklace, black shoes, a dark red lip, a royal blue statement coat, and a copy of her memoirs (or a rolled up copy of Vogue) under your arm. Final touch? Curl up that hair into tight spirals, and then backcomb it out for Grace's signature wild tresses.
