LBD is always appropriate and stylish. With a few tweaks it can become of the Halloween costumes for these classic characters. Do it on the budget, add some makeup magic, and you won’t have to splurge and will still look stylish.

LBD Halloween Costumes

Wednesday Addams

It’s not entirely black, I admit but it’s a technicality

Wednesday Addams

Wednesday of Addams family has a pretty straightforward style. She’s a schoolgirl who wears black. Add a bit of eyeliner and light foundation and don’t forget to braid your hair. Your LBD might require a white collar but that’s not difficult to do and you can easily keep warm with this look too wearing black tights and long sleeves.

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

Elvira also wears a bodysuit

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

Elvira might have a sultry approach to clothes but you can take it down a notch and accentuate makeup and hair although sex appeal is sort of her special thing. Still, hair, makeup, and long pointy nails will give people all the clues about who you are.

Cruella De Vil

Cruella De Vil

Cruella De Vil is a classic antagonist. She is so mean, the bad spirits are scared of her. You can have fun with accessories but Cruella’s look reminds me of a rich socialite after a long time filled with alcohol, parties, and total lack of sleep. She’s still pretty luxuriously dressed so keep that in mind. Maybe consider a fur jacket as an alternative to a coat if that’s too much for you.

You can also have a lot of fun with the hair. You can tailor-make your own character simply using makeuo and an LBD. There are many more general characters like vampires, ghosts, and flappers to go as but it’s always more interesting to have a weird little story to tell people to either scare them away or start a conversation.
