Halloween Costumes For The Christmas Obsessed

As much as I enjoy October 31, I'm pretty loyal when it comes to my favorite holiday. I am nothing short of obsessed with Christmas, and I'll take any chance I get to show some love for the most wonderful time of the year (IMO.) Here are four Halloween costumes for Christmas lovers, because if you really can be anything for one day a year, why not channel your favorite Yuletide icon?

For as long as I can remember, I've been kind of a Christmas addict. As much as I adore December 25 itself, though, it always has sort of a melancholy undertone for me, because I know the Christmas season is almost over. I love everything leading up to the holiday — the baking, the weather, the traditions. I keep Christmas music on my iPod year-round (seriously) and follow Christmas countdown accounts on Twitter. I like to get my Christmas cheer started as soon as possible so I don't feel so bummed out when it's all over, sad as that may sound.

If you can relate to any of this, I suggest you get your holiday spirit on a little early this year by choosing a Christmas-inspired Halloween costume that lets everyone know that it's a different holiday that really owns your heart. Whether you choose a classic symbol or your favorite character, here are TK ideas to consider.

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

Start with brown leggings, a brown turtleneck, black booties (for hooves, y'know?) and, of course, antlers.

Makeup is a biggie for this one — time to grab a red lipliner pencil and work some Christmas magic.

For a finishing touch, string a few bells on a red ribbon for a necklace/collar.

Cindy Lou Who

This is the best excuse to literally wear pajamas to a Halloween party.

Although the pajamas are super low-maintenance, the hair is what will make this costume recognizable. Here's a tutorial:

Absurdly long false eyelashes are also a must for this one.

Santa's Elf

Whether you want to get specific (like Jovie from Elf) or stay more general with you Santa's helper costume, the red and green will show people you're serious about your Christmas spirit.

And remember, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.


You'll be the cutest snowman anyone ever did see.

For the finishing touch, pin black felt circles on the sweater for buttons.
