A majority of the time, we take Halloween costume inspiration from our favourite characters in film. But what about the characters who’ve dressed up as others themselves? As we approach the big event in the next few days, we’re looking to some of Hollywood’s best Halloween fancy dress as last minute inspiration.
The Movie: Mean Girls
The Character: New girl at school Cady clearly didn’t get the memo when she decided to dress as a scary ‘ex-wife’, fake teeth and all.
How to Get the Look: Grab an old gown and add a veil, letting the scary parts do all the work- we’re talking a jet black wig, false teeth and dripping blood.
The Movie: Mean Girls
The Character: IT girl Regina George is all about looking sultry for Mean Girls’ main Halloween party.
How to Get the Look: Less is more for Regina with her glittering bodysuit, giant rabbit ears and knee-high boots, all trimmed with faux fur.
The Movie: Hocus Pocus
The Character: Vibrant and oh-so appropriate for fall, pre-teen Dani Dennison is all about making her witch costume colourful.
How to Get the Look: Ditch the all-black outfit in favour of a rich red and orange palette, complete with sun prints.
The Movie: Casper
The Character: When Kat and her father move into a haunted house, she embraces her surroundings by throwing a Halloween party.
How to Get the Look: Kat’s inspirations are predominantly Victorian, so think decadent lace with bridal touches.
The Movie: Donnie Darko
The Character: Donnie is a disenchanted teen who is looking to explore what it means to be alive, after surviving a freak accident.
How to Get the Look: Get your hands on a skeleton print tee.
The Movie: E.T
The Character: Probably the most notable alien in Hollywood history, E.T dons the perfect ghost disguise for Halloween.
How to Get the Look: Grab an old sheet and cut-out some eye holes to nail the look.
LILY AND JARROD'S SHARK AND EAGLE
The Movie: Eagle vs Shark
The Characters: Lily and Jarrod are a pair of misfits with a unique sense of humour. While Lily opted for a shark suit, Jarrod crafted himself an eagle outfit.
How to Get the Look: Head down to your nearest fancy dress shop for some animal-inspired ensembles.
