For curvy women on Halloween, finding the perfect costume can be tricky. You go to the shops and see rows and rows of amazing costumes in small through large, while somewhere in a tiny corner in the back of the store are a dozen outfits in anything bigger. Or at least... that used to be the case. Now, designers are embracing more than just regular, everyday plus-wear, they're embracing plus Halloween costumes, too! Behold.
Honestly, who doesn’t? Plus-size Lucy costumes have been around for ages, but they’ve always given off the “this is what Lucy would look like if she were frumpier and fat” vibe. This ensemble, on the other hand, has that subtle sex appeal we all loved Lucy for.
So if you’ve ever secretly wanted to be the ring master of a circus or a dark traveling poetry troupe, now’s your chance. You can have a corset, a riding crop and a top hat — aka a dream come true. ($75, hipsandcurves.com)
The Classic Cat
Cliché, maybe. Done a million times, perhaps. But the classic cat costume just never goes out of style.
We all know the Christmas music is going to hit radio stations the second Halloween is over, so why not freak people out by being a Christmas elf a few months in advance? It’s going to happen sooner or later, anyway.
