Halloween costumes can be chic. For instance, take the example above (balloon work by Rie Hosokai via Fabric Magazine). If I liked Halloween, had no children, had all kinds of extra time on my hands, was more crafty than I really am and had the body of a little boy, this would be my Halloween costume. And I would be ‘champagne’. I’d probably use blush colored balloons and go for more of a pink champagne. I’d make people call me Piper or Veuve and I would prance around the neighborhood like a bubbly goddess. But that ain’t happening.
This look is way more practical. I do not like dressing up so being able to wear something that resembles a normal every day outfit is essential. By simply adding this amazing paper mache lion mask or something similar you can take you carpool outfit right in to trick or treating.
But this isn’t going to happen either. For me, I will most likely be dressed in some sort of a legging, some sort of a flat super comfy shoe and a nondescript mom tunic. What about you? Do you dress up to take the kids trick or treating?
