Closet Costumes: Using a Yellow Dress

Yellow is mellow, but that doesn't mean you can't bring it out for Halloween (you can tell I'm a little brain dead writing this one). If you haven't already, the previous "Closet Costumes" posts are here: using plaid shirts, a beige skirt and black thigh-high socks. These were each brainstormed, created, and photographed in 30 minutes or less (with items I already own). Shout with any more ideas using yellow dresses!

If You Need One: Halter Yellow Dress, Yellow Shift Dress, Yellow Slip Dress

1. Hipster "Don't-Give-A-Fuck" Snow White

You want to keep my heart in a locked box? You talk to your own mirror? Evil Queen, you basic. The most important thing about this costume is your chill, bad ass attitude and your delicious, red apple. Oh, and if you fall asleep because you just a little bit too much Halloween candy, just hope no guys will even dare try to kiss you awake. That's just rude manners, you know?

Note: Poison not included with apple (and also not recommended).


2. Amy from Trainwreck

Similar: Paperbag for your shenanigans

The easiest costume. And it also allows you to keep your drink concealed in public areas so the party doesn't slow down no matter where you are. But this is by no means an endorsement to drink in public areas and be a debaucherous hooligan. I repeat, by no means.

And if you haven't seen Trainwreck yet, it's a pretty good laugh and a nice change of pace in terms of the usual comedy you've been seeing in Rom Coms lately. It drags on for a bit and gets a bit stale in terms of the plot, but I enjoyed it nevertheless.


3. Hot Mess Yellow Teletubby

Similar: Black Jelly Sandals

Because if a Teletubby is going to romping around on Halloween, you know it's going to be a hot mess. Just smack on a paper screen (bonus points if it's half dangling off your dress because, yes, that was intentional on my part...heh), cut out your fly head piece, and voila! You're all set to go do whatever it is that Teletubbies did.
