All Hallows Eve approaches, and I know you all like to prepare a costume in advance right? Even if Halloween is on a Monday this year, bummer! Last year I did two posts about quick retro costumes you could probably pull at least 50%-ish of from an average retro/vintage gal's closet, and well-- I'm back again this year with 5 more ideas! (Last year's posts here and here).
Got some pink 50's clothes? Add a pink or strawberry blond (or any of her other hair colors in the film!) curly wig, and a pink ladies jacket too if you are dedicated :) I used to really love Grease when I was a kid, and when I watched it for the first time as an adult I was scandalized at how dirty it was having never realized of course in my naive youth! Still, Grease was probably my earliest exposure to 1950's style and I still love the stylized mid-century design. Any of the pink ladies are excellent options for Halloween, and it would be a super great group costume for a troupe of friends!
Agent Peggy Carter
I selfishly left Peggy off of my lists last year because, well, I was Peggy last year! I'll probably go as Peggy again this year too actually, she's one of my favorite characters after all. If you have got any 1940s suiting or separates you can totally put the agent Carter look together with ease. A button down blouse in silk with either a dark colored skirt or high waisted trousers work well too if you don't want to go for the full suit look. I made some fake SSR file folders and picked up a cheap plastic pistol for my costume last year and had tons of fun posing as Peggy!
So what are you all going as for Halloween this year? I'll be at work during the day so I'll probably just wear my Peggy dress for fun and handing out candy in the evening. I don't care if I am an "adult" now, I still love dressing up, so much so that I could never resign such fun to only one day a year ;)
