Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Halloween has always been my holiday. For as long as I can remember, I've been making my costumes from scratch, which have notoriously taken weeks of planning and long nights burning the midnight oil alongside a sewing machine. Nowadays, it seems I hardly have enough bandwidth to create one costume, let alone an entire family's! Why does this Halloween always seem to sneak up on me? In recent years, I started creating semi-homemade costumes where I'll buy a costume, or parts of a costume, and then tweak and tailor it to make it unique and distinct. But I'm also loving the idea of creating costumes that can be reworn or repurposed after Halloween night. It cuts down on waste . . . and time!

I'm excited to have partnered with Zappos to recreate some of my favorite, most iconic fictional heroines. Not only is every element of each costume from Zappos (that includes clothing, accessories and shoes), the costumes incorporate wardrobe staples that can be worn year-round. We all need a teddy coat, trench and leather jacket in our outerwear repetroire, am I right? This is just proof that you can actually looked pulled together versus thrown together on Halloween, even if it's super last minute! If you've procrastinated and still don't have a costume (I can relate), you can simply place an order via the handy Zappos app and get everything delivered the next business day - just in time for trick or treating. I hope that the looks I've created will give you some inspiration. No excuses! And now, can you guess who these characters are?
