Halloween is just around the corner and let’s face it, figuring out a costume is probably top priority on most of our lists this month. I for one, have always taken Halloween very seriously, probably putting way too much effort into making the best, most original costumes. Now, I’m going to open the vault and share with you one of my favourite movie characters and how to design your Halloween costume after her.
This year channel the original mobster wife Mia Wallace from the 1994 movie Pulp Fiction. She is sincerely badass and has just the right amount of spook to fit into the Halloween spirit, considering her unfortunate (almost) demise. Thankfully the studly John Travolta was there to save the day.
WHAT TO WEAR:
For tops, all you need is a white collared shirt (preferably bloody) and a black blazer. Both items you can buy or easily be thrifted, considering the movie was in the 90′s – thrift store items would be perfect.
For your bottom half, go with a simple black pant and black heels.
A trench coat could also be an added piece to your costume, the more oversized the better.
As for makeup, besides a fake bloody nose and chest wound, stick to dark lips and dark nails, and of course a blunt bob wig with a straight across fringe.
Going with a partnet? Dress them up like Vincent Vega and you’re set.
