Glam Updates Classic Costume Ideas: Minnie Mouse


If you haven’t already gotten your Halloween costume figured out, you might be quick to throw on a bunch of black and top it off with paper triangles stapled to a headband for one of the most clichéd costumes out there. Though some people view these overdone getups as a Halloween cop-out, we believe that there’s always a way to transform a lame idea into a unique one. Our first attempt at glamming up a run-of-the-mill getup involved mouse ears – what else? It goes to show that if you take a few cues from fashion (and ditch the pre-packaged ensembles), there’s no chance your costume will be perceived as boring. Not to mention the fact that by wearing real clothing items as opposed to ill-fitting frocks, you’re bound to look good. The best part is that once you’re done with these Minnie Mouse-inspired pieces, you’ll be able to incorporate them into your wardrobe for future use.
