The month of October is always an exciting one because not only is fall in full force, but it also means that Halloween is around the corner. Months ago, we did a “Get The Look” series on Jennifer Lawrence, and our Katniss Everdeen feature was so popular, we just had to share some of our other favorite costume ideas with you all so you can look fierce and fabulous this Halloween.
Katniss has become the heroine of 2012 and we have an inkling that the Hunger Games’ protagonist will be a very popular Halloween costume this year. Check out our picks so you can get her look and be the “girl on fire” this Halloween.
**Get The Look – Katniss Everdeen: J. Crew t-shirt, Kendra Scott Lex Stud Earring in Black, Kendra Scott Sommer Ring in Black, Think Geek Katniss replica arena jacket, Northface pants, Disney Brave Merida archery set, Mockingjay pin, Frye combat boots
What girl hasn’t longed to be a princess at least once or her life (and has likely dressed up for one as Halloween)? Take this fairytale fantasy to another level this year and dress as a real-life princess – Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. While Kate’s wedding look will be a popular choice, we also love the dress she donned when she announced her engagement. Just put on a big blue sparkler and a look-alike royal blue dress and you’ll be as regal as the future queen herself. What’s even better is that you can keep the classic, chic dress to wear for everyday. And of course, no princess is complete without her crown. Try a Royal Wedding replica crown to channel your inner-Kate!
Let your sassy redhead out this Halloween and embrace your inner Joan from the hit series Mad Men! We love Joan’s mix of classy with a hint of sex appeal as she struts her stuff through the advertising office, giving Don Draper a run for his money. We’ve picked out some essentials to get the look of the hottest redhead on TV. Simple yet sophisticated, rock this outfit and everyone will be wishing they had your poise and confidence this Halloween.

Her look is simple to get with a long pendant necklace like our Rayne Necklace and tassel earrings like our Laurel Earrings (which are on sale).

Looking for a costume that’s a bit more sinister this Halloween? With all of the buzz about Angelina Jolie starring as the villain herself in Disney’s Maleficent (premiering in 2014), we think this costume will be a magnificent choice this year. We found a costume that matches Disney’s most famous villain perfectly and a staff with an identical crow included. Just accessorize with a mysterious black stone ring and black horns and you’ll be as menacing as the dragon-queen herself.
If you’re going to dress as Disney’s most infamous character, you’ll need some serious makeup to complete your look. We found this mock-up of Angelina Jolie as Maleficent and were inspired! Here are our picks to get Maleficent’s makeup look. If you want to really get creative with your Maleficent costume this Halloween, check out this awesome Maleficent makeup tutorial we found. Your friends will be green with envy as you strut your stuff as the villain everyone loves to hate.
