Closet Costumes Using: Black Thigh-High Socks

With all the Halloween costume panic vibes that the majority of people around me are giving off, both at work and outside of work, I can't help but feel the same anxiety as I start ravaging Pinterest for ideas. But then my wallet starts getting a little nervous as I scroll through ideas that require me to get either too elaborate or spend too much money.

So, I present to you, Closet Costumes. A series of costume ideas that revolve around one item in my closet, starting with my beloved black thigh-high socks. Everything featured was pulled from things I already owned and each costume was brainstormed, created, and photographed in 30 minutes or less (for you lazy bastards like myself). YOU CAN DO THIS TOO, YOU HALLOWEEN WARRIOR.


--------------------------------------

1. The Classic Mime



Is it cheating if I swap out one black thigh-high sock with a white thigh-high sock? No? I didn't think so. But being a mime is such an easy costume to pull together, even if you decide to avoid the white face paint altogether (like my lazy self), since you can interpret it any way you want. There's also something exciting about putting make-up on your face where it doesn't usually belong. Plus, you're also fulfilling your scary quota since mimes are really scary. What are they thinking? Do they feel real emotion? Who are they? But also, you can avoid talking to people at Halloween parties because you're a fucking mime and you have to stay in character.

2. The Instagram Obsessed Style Blogger



So I can't even really qualify this as a costume because, I mean, come on. Come on. This is pretty much me on a daily basis if we're being honest with ourselves. But the only extra effort required for this costume is creating an orange Instagram notification bar, which I just cut out and glued together using some leftover construction paper. You can even go the extra mile and attach it onto a headband using some skewers so your arm doesn't get tired all day. This can really work for an Instagram obsessed [fill in the blank here]. Instagram, YAS!

3. Wednesday Addams



So this costume was quite honestly the easiest thing to put together. It helps that I have black hair, but seriously, it's pretty much at the 5% effort level and it gives you an excuse to be a pessimistic, badass bitch the entire day (not like you need an excuse). But since there's not much else to say, let's take some time to say, "HELLO, JEN'S FOREHEAD." I know you should love everything about yourself, but this forehead...sometimes we just don't quite get along. It's not too big, it's not too small, but there's something about it that rubs me the wrong way...which could mainly be because of the fact that it's been hiding under my bangs for almost a decade. It's like when you're in the dark movie theater for hours and then you emerge to the horrifyingly bright sun and fall to the ground from like you're Dracula or some shit.

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