Best Costumes of 2011
Buy: Pan-AmThe show may have gone cold, but these super-cute flight attendant costumes are still red hot! The little blue dress is just the right amount of sexy without roaming into the slutty territory.
Make: ZombiesYou heard it here first: zombies are the new vampires. We could not be more obsessed with The Walking Dead and it’s easy to recreate the undead look. Find worn clothes then tear, shred, rub with dirt, and cover with red blood-like paint. Cover body with gray face paint, walk slow with a limp, and voilà!
Buy: Black SwanChannel your inner prima ballerina with a serious side of darkness and dive into this naughty costume. We love the sexy little tutu and feather details.
Make: Mad Men and WomenClassic suits, thin ties, and slicked back hair for the guys. Girls should hit the thrift shops for ’60s style dresses with cinched waists and poufy skirts. Finish the look with pearls and heels.
Buy: Arnold and the MaidNeed a couple’s costume? Take a cue from the headlines with this tabloid-y duo. Have your guy pair the mask with a muscle suit and cigar and pick up a sexy little black and white maid outfit for yourself.
Make: ’80s Dance DivasThe ’80s comeback is still hitting us hard which means it’s easier than ever to put this costume together. Find inspiration from Flashdance, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, and Footloose (the original of course). Grab your leotards and leg warmers and let the big crimped hair take over.
Buy: Sexy PeacockYes, birds are hot this Halloween. This has been a favorite costume of celebs like Audrina Patridge and Tori Spelling and it’s still flying high on our adorable meter.
Make: Rachel ZoeThis costume is sure to be bananas! Wear hair wavy and part down the middle. Find your biggest pair of shades and pair with a faux-fur vest, chunky jewelry, and animal print baggy dress. Make sure to carry a gorgeous bag and a baby doll!
Buy: Charlie Sheen and His GoddessesGot a group? Grab your girlfriends and one lucky warlock for this costume. We are digging the Two and a Half Men-esque bowling shirt for him and gorgeous sexy toga dresses for the girls.
Make: The KardashiansThis is another great group costume. You’ll each need long, black, straight wigs – parted down the middle or slicked back in a pony. You can look through photos to emulate each K’s style but if it’s tight and leopard print and you put a pillow inside the back of your pants, you’re on the right track!
