This costume is dynamite!
Coming Up For Halloween
You’ve been asking for Halloween costumes and I’m finally delivering! Throughout this month I’ll be posting costume ideas you can easily DIY and thrift on the cheap. Included are costumes from different decades and genres and I will also create a round-up of past 1980s looks from my blog for inspiration. There will be something for everyone!
My first costume is inspired by the 2004 movie Napoleon Dynamite which has always had a soft spot in my heart. One thing that I love about it is it’s pseudo nod to the 1980s. Nobody embodies that more than Deb (Napoleon’s sorta girlfriend) and her collection of Caboodles cases. Just think of all the candy you could hoard in these Caboodles cases!
This is probably the simplest of all the costumes I’ll be posting – 5 minutes flat – but with more time I would have made some lanyards to hand out to be all official.
What I Used
- Pink collared shirt, $1.23
- Light wash skinny jeans, $1
- Fanny pack, .25 cents
- Reebok sneakers, $19 (as seen in my BTTF Jennifer Parker costume!)
- Caboodles cases (as seen in my Caboodles collection video)
- Necklace/bangle, $1
This would also be a great addition to a group costume if you got some friends together to be the cast of Napoleon Dynamite. Or you could just go solo – like me – and ask to take glamour shots for anyone who’s interested.
Please feel free to Pin this and share it with your friends on social media. And if you have a Halloween costume suggestion you’d like me to try, leave a comment on this post. I’d love to hear your ideas!
Great easy, DIY costume!
Hahahaha! This is brilliant!
Love the costume and the movie! The photoshoot scene is a favorite. I also like The Promise the song played during the credits. As for your costume suggestions maybe a lady version of Bill and Ted.
Hahaaaaa I love it! I can’t wait to see more of your costumes. This is one of my favorite things about October. All the fun costume inspiration!
What did you use for the holder of the caboodle cases?
