It may seem far off, but Halloween will be here before you know it. If you’re anything like us, you’re already brainstorming costume ideas. We’ve come up with some EDPR predictions on the costumes we think will be hottest in 2014. Be sure to check back for more updates leading up to the big day!
For the Creative: Katy Perry and Riff Raff paying tribute to Britney and Justin
Katy Perry and Riff Raff brought back Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears’ 2001 (ya.. it was that long ago!) infamous matching jean ensemble at this year’s VMAs. You and your sweetie could look this tacky with just a little extra effort! So hit up a Value Village and load up on jeans to make your gown, and hit up a craft store (Michaels is always a great option) for rhinestones and whatever else you want to add to this hilarious get up.
For the time strapped: Kimye
This one’s almost too easy.. dress monochromatic. Lots of makeup will ensure people know who you are. Oh yea, and don’t smile Kanye!
For the effortless: Prince William and Princess Kate (plus baby George)
For an easy costume that people are sure to recognize, dress as the most popular couple in the world! Wear modest clothes, make your hair look as perfect as humanly possible and for bonus points, carry around a baby. A crown wouldn’t hurt, either.
For the Creative: Sharknado 2
This one will take a bit of creativity and crafting, but with the recent release of the Sharknado sequel, it’s bound to be a popular pick. Check out this video tutorial for instructions.
For the time strapped: Rob Ford
Alright, we admit it. This whole Rob Ford mockery has gotten a little tired, but this mask is pretty hilarious. Malabar is selling Rob Ford masks for only $26, pair it with a suit and you’re good to go!
For the effortless: Tinder
If Tinder isn’t working out for you, maybe the app will work as a costume. Grab a cardboard box and some markers and you’re all set! A halloween party is a good excuse to mix and mingle, and this costume will make it clear you’re on the market.
For the Creative: Nicki Minaj
This year’s MTV VMAs serves as the perfect inspiration for Halloween, especially Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda performance outfit. This costume will take a bit of effort, but with the right materials we would be shocked if it didn’t impress. Materials required include green sequinned fabric for the shorts, along with green body paint or painted nude tights. You can use an old bra and layer the fabric on it to make the top — then just throw on a pair of black kicks! Maybe it’s time to start the Ab-Challenge now? If not, body paint can help you there too!
For the time strapped: The Chandelier Girl
This is quite possibly the easiest costume of the bunch. Grab a pink leotard, platinum wig and smear some blue marker on your hands. But remember, Halloween in Toronto is notoriously chilly — so plan to party inside!
For the effortless: Maleficent
Candy’s has a “Witchy Woman” costume that is absolutely perfect for Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent. Do some contouring, big red lips and green contacts and you’re good to go! However, no effort means you will pay for it, with this costume being $98.00.
