Movie Bad Girl Inspired Costume Ideas

Halloween is so close I am already doing my make-up…okay maybe that is an exaggeration. Are you still trying to decide what to wear to that party? Even if you have your costume for this year, you can file away one of these ideas for next year. Here are some fun suggestions based on some of my favorite movie bad girls…and boys I have remembered you in this column too. I love Halloween and the chance to wear a costume. I love costumes so much I think that may be the entire reason I entertain as well. Here is a list of some fun gals (and guys) you can be for Halloween night.

My favorite little animated diva: Boo from “Monsters Inc”

It is so simple to bring this little tyke to life and you probably have the entire costume already sitting in your home.

Everyone’s favorite prom date: “Carrie” (if you are going out with the boyfriend or spouse dress him up like Tommy Ross)

Keep in mind to be careful with the fake blood. It can get messy.

How about a true classic and a character that is kooky and scary as hell: Baby Jane

For added effect brush up on Baby Jane's song "I've Written a Letter to Daddy", then sing it badly.

Speaking of kooky and scary, layer on that frumpy clothing as Annie Wilkes from “Misery” and don’t forget the sledge-hammer.

Don't forget to tell people "I'm Your Number One Fan"

Pam Grier took bad ass women to a whole new level as “Foxy Brown” and the character is the epitome of Movie Bad Girls of the 1970’s.

This is a fun retro look. Pull out your 70's funky finest and show them that a woman can be stylish and tough.
