That’s right, it’s that time of year again. A magical time when cosplay isn’t reserved for the nerds in line at Comic Con. Each year you try to out-do your Oh-So-Clever DIY OITNB costume, but it’s getting harder and harder! You have less time and waaaaay less energy to fight the lines at Party City for a tube of fake blood. We hear you.
Rather than come up with a brand new oh-so-witty costume that most people won’t get, why not reinvent an ol’ faithful and crowd pleaser? That’s right. We’re talking Disney.
Here are a few ways to reinvent your favorite Disney characters without having to squeeze into a child’s costume:
1. TOY STORY - Buzz Lightyear or Woody
To infinity and beyond! Do Halloween Old Skool with Vans’ newest Pixar collaboration and keep it a comfy and casual night.
2. THE FOX AND THE HOUND - Todd
We’ve all been haunted by the final scene of this movie where the old lady releases her pet fox back into the wild and drives off alone. But this Halloween, let everyone’s childhood hopes be assured, Todd survived his reintroduction into the wild! ASOS’ collection of tails (you did hear that right) will have you looking foxy the whole night.
3. ALICE IN WONDERLAND - White Rabbit
We all have that friend who’s always late. Ok fine, we’re the ones that are always “running behind schedule”. This year, embrace it! Dress as the White Rabbit with these awesome white Pom-Pom sneakers by Here Now Shop - just remember to be extra late to everything that night.
4. THE LITTLE MERMAID - Ariel
This one’s easy...remember the part in the movie where she grows legs, dresses like a human and just doesn’t talk? EASIEST. COSTUME. EVER. Want to take it one extra step? Here is something that’s sure to get you noticed. Perch yourself up on this Seashell Floaty at your table in the club and watch the tinsel-wigged mermaids gawk.
5. THE JUNGLE BOOK - Baloo
Halloween is always cold. We all pretend it’s a warm fall day, but in actuality, it’s just a few hours before November’s bitter start. This Halloween, be Baloo, the beloved best friend of everyone’s favorite fire-wielding ‘man-cub’! This faux-fur jacket from Urban Outfitters will keep you warm the whole night while you hunt for honey-coated sweets!
Or if Halloween really isn’t for you, we’ve still got you covered with our favorite Disney character, and we will be channeling her the entire weekend: Sleeping Beauty.
