//1// Beauty Queen
This one works for women of all ages. Find the fanciest dress in your closet. It may be a military ball grown, an old bridesmaid's dress, or a dressy cocktail number. Pair your dress with inexpensive crown (try your local Claire's or scavenge for one in your favorite kiddo's dress up box), and a rockin' pair of heels. Make a sash from extra wide ribbon and top it off with a bouquet of fake flowers.
//2// Where's Waldo?
The children’s book character makes a great costume for adults — gal or guy. Start looking in your closet for a red and white striped shirt and jeans or navy blue pants. Next, you’ll need accessories: a camera to hang around your neck, a red knit cap, a walking stick or cane, and Waldo’s signature black eyeglasses.
//3// Biker Chick
Who hasn't heard of the TV show Sons of Anarchy?! Jump on trend and into the motorcycle gang with gear straight from your closet. All you need to make this ensemble work is leather! Also think boots, black, skulls, a black jacket, white tees or tanks, and vests. You’ll look sexy and tough for your party.
//4// Rosie the Riveter
She was a symbol of the 1940s. Just look through your closet and pull out your chambray or a navy blue long-sleeve button-up shirt. Roll up the sleeves to just above the elbow. Find a red bandana or red scarf and wrap it around your hair. Add some bright red lipstick, and you’re ready to head to the that Halloween party!
