Halloween 2010!

With Halloween a little over a month away, now's a great time to start brainstorming for costume ideas.

Here's 3 great (and easy!) ideas for a DIY 2010 costume:

1. 2010 introduced us to a new type of pop-star, no longer feinging the innocence of teenage Britney Spears. Hello, Kesha. She certainly doesn't play be the rules and doesn't care what anyone thinks. She can't sing. She can't dance. And she loves garbage bags? For a super easy DIY costume try imitating Kesha's trashy chic attire by wearing non other than a garbage bag. Cut it, pin it, belt it, whatever you want in the shape of a tube dress to copy her VMA style. Re-create that messy slept in hair and smudgy eye-makeup look, add sky heels, and your costume is complete.

2. Spring 2011 is heavily influenced by 60s and 70s fashion...mod minis and eyeliner to boot. Stay on trend with a 60s or 70s influenced costume. Pick a simple silhoutted dress from your closet, play with dark black liner, keep your hair straight and parted down the middle, and add cute wedges.

3. Denim and chambray were a key trend this spring and summer, so why not carry that over into a halloween costume? For a cute western girl costume, pair your denim shirt with denim shorts of a different shade. Keep your makeup simple, braid your hair to the side, and try with a chunky belt and cowboy styled boots, for a simple non-gimicky take on the cowgirl costume.

Have fun with your costume! It's not every day we get to dress up in a crazy fun outfit and go to a party with people dressed in likewise fun and crazy outfits and eat candy corn. Soak it all in, candy and all.
