Costumes I’m DYING to get

It’s my favorite time of year.

The weather changes and becomes cooler.

We start gearing up for the holidays.

AND there’s Halloween, only my most favorite holiday of them all.

The algorithms over at Facebook are having their hey day with me, showing me all sorts of costumes and accoutrement for Halloween.

Here are a few stand outs from

Ruby from the Fifth Element. Because I can’t fit in a LeeLoo bandage costume.

Ludo from Labyrinth. Because I really love Labyrinth and I already have a Sarah costume.

Lil Kim purple catsuit with matching nipple pasty.  Because I love modern pop culture costume references.

Ace Ventura.  Because he’s the best and it looks like an easy costume to pull off.  Love you Jim Carrey!

Claire from The Breakfast Club.  Once again, LOVE pop culture references.  Does it come with a John Bender accessory, I wonder. . .

Sarah from Labyrinth.  I already have a quinceañera dress I wear as a Labyrinth costume, but this one is so much nicer.

Beauty School Dropout costume from Grease.  Because I already have a Hot Sandy costume.

Another good source of women’s costumes is Fashion Nova.

Here are a few outstanding costumes:

A knock off of Jennifer Lopez’s famous plunging green Versace gown from the 2000 Grammys.

Madonna’s Take A Bow costume.  Because we’ve already established I’m a sucker for pop culture references.

Take this all with a grain of salt.

I won’t be ordering them all.

But I plan to pick up a few for my closet.

Now if I could just arrange for a party!

More nerd-ish costumes

Apparently, Velma is a REALLY POPULAR FETISH that some people have.

The response to my post has been swift and arousing.

Who knew that a nerdy little brunette in glasses could have SO MUCH APPEAL?

I thought I was the only one.

So, in no particular order, here are some other cosplay ideas that have been bouncing around in my brain.

Sarah from Labyrinth:

I’ve discovered quinceańera dresses are quite suitable for this.

Claudia from Interview with the Vampire:

Please allow me to introduce myself. . .

I love this costume:

Sexy Stormtrooper.

Only because I saw Blackheart Burlesque put on a show that made my jaw drop.

Gotta love any costume that begins with a bodysuit:

Snow White.

Personally I love a Steampunk Snow White:

But that’s just me.

I also have a thing for Mary Poppins, Merida, Madeline and a BIG THING for Marie Antoinette (we share the same birthday), but that’s a MUCH larger post for the future.
