Flappers were the fun girls of their era, and this costume may have you kicking your heals up. Your dress should be sleek, a shift dress was in then and so was lots of fringes. Add lots of embellished gold jewelry to this costume for that expensive 20’s look. Don’t forget the feather headpiece!

Ballerina

  1. I think anyone can whip up a witch costume pretty easily! Thanks for the other great ideas.

  2. This is so creative! I often, as an adult, have to go to a Halloween event last minute and never have anything to wear. This just might come in handy!

  3. What a fun idea to just go into your own closet to get something for halloween. We usually don’t dressed up, but its fun to do it every once in a while.

  4. So many great ideas! I just now need my BFF to live near me to see if I can whip something up quickly!

  5. Ha, ha, ha… I love it. All great inspirations for Halloween. I actually have a few of those pieces inside my closet. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Love the witch costume! I think it’s great to be able to put something together at home. No need to spend/waste money on purchasing a costume that you’ll only wear once.

  7. I love these costumes. My kids are still deciding on what they want to be this year. We love to dress up and hand out candy to all the little ones.

  8. There’s so many costumes you can make out of clothing you already have if you’re creative about it!

  9. There are 2 that are my favourites. The gypsy and the flapper dress. I love the skirt from the gypsy costume and the flapper style is great.
