Closet Costumes Using: A Beige Skirt

Next up on Closet Costumes (episode numero one here), I present to you...costumes using a beige- or cream-colored skirt. The most basic of basics but so handy when it comes to last-minute costumes. This time, the costumes are definitely ranked from most favorite to slightly less favorite but, as always, they were all brainstormed, created, and photographed in 30 minutes or less. Shout with any more ideas using this skirt! 

If You Need One: Midi Beige Skirt, Suede Beige Skirt, Tulle Skirt


1. Claire from Jurassic World

Similar: Cream Blouse, Lavender Dress, Nude Heels

Look at this bad bitch. I know there was a lot of controversy around it, but Claire in Jurassic Park owned running in heels...away from a T-Rex. Seriously, if you haven't seen Jurassic World yet, please add it to the top of your list this year. It's not the best movie you've ever seen, but you can never say "No" to epic dinosaurs beating the crap out of each other and being glorious motherfuckers. Also, Chris Pratt.

Also, the outtakes from shooting this costume are just horrible and brilliant at the same time.


2. Bubble Tea

Similar: Nude Bodysuit, Nude Sandals

I now have an immense craving for Bubble Tea. If you've got some extra construction paper around (seriously, that stuff is gold so buy it in bulk and keep it around), cut out some black circles to be the tapioca and pick any color to be your abnormally large straw. If you cut the end of the straw into little strips, you can bend them flat against your head and pin them down with the magic of bobby pins. Now the only danger is going into the world looking so damn delicious and making it back home alive.


3. Ice Cream Cone

Similar: White Crop Top, Peach Suede Sandals

I could not be more excited about this costume because I look like such a butt. Like, bobby pinning a felt tomato on your head...upside-down...does not make it a cherry to top your pitiful looking ice cream cone costume. But somehow, it kind of also totally does. Looking stupid becomes okay once you own looking stupid. You know who did think this was a stupid costume though? Bubba. Why? Because I bought him an x-small banana costume which only covers 1/3 of his large, fluffy body, and I tried to get him to be a banana split with me. Happiness did not ensue and Bubba spent the rest of the day pouting at me. But then again that might have just been his face.

Anything items you want to see featured next? Anything from my closet? Girl, tell me what you want, what you really really want.

  5. oh my god, you're adorable. Ice cream cone has to be my favorite <3! What can you come up with using a traditional little black dress?

    1. You could always go for the classics (witch, cat, batman/woman) but you could also go for things more obscure, like adding a white stripe down the back of the dress and being a skunk (and spraying perfume on people haha). Or if you cut out a red felt heart and attach it to the front, you could be the queen of hearts! Just buy a pack of cards to make a collar. Or put stick-on sequins all over you and be the night sky. :)

  6. the bubble tea is so creative! would've never thought of that haha

  7. Running in high heels, indeed! A lot of people who badmouthed her didn't seem to realise that. I mean, at the end of the movie - after the euphoria of seeing dinosaurs beat the crap out of each other - I realised that she was STILL wearing her high heels, running from all kinds of Rexes. That is! Btw, thanks for the costume ideas ;)
