FAB UP YOUR LIFE
Crafty costumes: Vintage villains
Queen of Hearts
Be the ultimate up-to-no-good gal, the Queen of Hearts this year. Before you hit the store, check out your closet (and yeah, your sibs’ and your buds’) for a statement-making red piece, like a fab dress or a cool coat. Glue a tiara to your thrift store topper (or create one using a glitter-glue pen or a metallic fabric marker) and add the trademark card to the brim.
Hunt for…a top hat (and anything red). Accessorize with…the queen of hearts, natch!
Play the once-upon-a-time card, but this year, toss the crown! Instead of dressing up as goodie-two-shoes Cinderella or animal-whisperer Snow White, glam yourself up as an evil stepsister en route to the ball. It’s even better with a bud!
Hunt for…an out-there prom dress. Accessorize with…a few grotesque warts and huge hair.
Think you can top Helena Bonham Carter? You’ll want to channel your inner goth for this get-up, girlie. Get in character by re-reading the books or watching the movies. Stupefy!
Hunt for…a Victorian-style black dress. Accessorize with…crazy hair, witchy boots and a wand.
Big Bad Wolf
Who says the BBW’s gotta be a guy? Help the furry fella get in touch with his—her—feminine side this Halloween. Go casual with dark-wash jeans and a simple tee, but do practice your very best “the better to see you with, my dear!” impression.
