Freddie Mercury – Bohemian Rhapsody

Freddie Mercury

Light colored jeans, a white sleeveless shirt, a black belt and an arm band. If you’ve been growing your mustache for a while, then you won’t need a fake one. Revive the 80’s icons look with ease. If you’ve been feeling bold and extra confident, you can also sport some of the tight-fitting leotards he wore on stage.

Brawny Man Costume

Not much of a backstory for this “public image” since he’s not really a character but he’s gained quite some following these past few years. This iconic figure is an easy and simple look to copy. All it requires is a plaid shirt, brown belt, jeans, work boots and of course a bag of brawny paper towels for unmistakable reference. 

Han Solo – Solo

A leather jacket or a vest, white long sleeved top, jeans, belt and a leather holster.  If you’re a long time Star Wars fan and have wanted to dress up as one of the characters, then this is a winner. It’s an easy ensemble to pull off and near screen accurate. He’s a popular figure whose look is easily recognizable and you don’t have to worry about having to explain your disguise.

Regina George – Mean Girls

Who can steal the spotlight better than Regina George? This classic character from “Mean Girls” is all you need to channel as you head your way to the Halloween party. The character is still relatable, and it will always be cool to reference a line or two from the film’s dialogue. Plus, her signature outfit is almost guaranteed to be in your closet. All you need is nude pumps, black skirt, white tank top, pink cardigan and of course – the resting mean face.

Veronica Lodge – Riverdale

Her “New York Girl” fashion style, love for pearls and macaroons is the best new girl on the block outfit you can rock. She may always look super fancy but it doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to get into her character. Steal her look with a black hair wig, sleeveless tank top, plaid skirt, black heels, gold bracelet and pearl necklace. The great thing about this is that you can head over to the thrift store to buy some of the things you’ll need.

Wednesday Addams – The Addams Family

A black dress with white collar, black shoes, some hair braids is all you need and you’re good to go! As for her makeup, you only need to use a white base to make your face pale. A little dash of dark eyeshadow to create false dark circles under your eye area and perhaps go extra with black painted nails – another tribute to her favorite color.

Audrey Hepburn – Breakfast in Tiffany’s

If you feel like going vintage, then this look will never fail you. Dress up like this Hollywood icon and emulate her glam in the flick of a finger. An LBD, cat –eye sunglasses, black gloves, tiara, earrings, pearl necklace and some black heels is everything you need to successfully put this look together.  If some are not in your closet, you can raid your mom’s closet or visit your local thrift store as most of the items needed for this look are easily found.
