___________THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS___________
It is Halloween already and of course you don’t have any costumes because a) you’re sick of dressing up every year (not applicable for me since this is going to be the second year I’m celebrating it) b) you ran out of original costume ideas (see previous paranthesis) c) you couldn’t find a decent, non-tacky party to attend d) you don’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on clothes you will never wear again or e) you thought you didn’t care about halloween until right NOW.
As an outsider to the parade I always coveted people (couples, to be more accurate) who came up with contemporary ideas (that Florence and The Machine duo is, to this day, my favourite) so instead of dressing up as a somewhat scary or slutty individual I prefer channeling an iconic look – mostly because even if you screw it up people would get it aand yeah it’s the cheapest. Actually it may also be the most expensive option so you have to play the odds and find the look that suits your wardrobe the most. Case in point: decided to be Sandy Olsen – turns out I don’t have ANYTHING in my closet that is remotely similar to her bad girl outfit so I’m out a lot of money and in exchange I now own a bunch of stuff I will never wear again until 70’s make another definitive comeback and a horrible wig. I really should have gone with Annie Hall…

And this one comes because I assume you already own a lot of 20’s stuff: flapper dresses, rhinestone headbands etc…
