Halloween Hotness

No, not that kind. I mean, not the dress-up-as-skanky-as-possible looks. When it comes to Halloween costumes, it's sometimes easy to go from looking like the lady of the night to a lady of the night.

I've picked out a few that I love. First up, is the stylish yet adorable Nutcracker. If I were dressing up, this would be my first choice. Not only because that military/marching band jacket look is super in right now, but I've always wanted to wear a big furry hat.

As an equestrian, of course I love this dressage-inspired look. I'd carry a longer whip though!

And I give top marks to Gwen for just having fun with her fried egg look below. It's quirky, kinda nerdy and totally cute.
Some other ideas I love but didn't find any pictures worthy to post are: Mystique from X-Men, a dead ballerina and thanks to my friend Amanda, a fallen/dead trapeze artist.

What are you dressing up as this year and do you love or loathe Halloween? Is it a way to mask who you are or does it actually reveal a window into the psyche?

Equestrian and Nutcracker costumes can be found on

Whoa, that Nutcracker costume is hot! You could probably even use some of the elements for every day wardrobe ;-) I love Gwen Stefani's costume... I wonder if Gavin Rossdale went as a strip of bacon?

Halloween isn't as popular over here unfortunately. I'm not quite sure the Parisians here would consider it chic to dress up like a croissant, although I might try to start a new trend...

Ugh, I have NO idea what I am going to dress up as. Actually I'm probably not going to dress up this year... got to save money for the party coming up :)

Can't wait to see what you dress up as!

I love all the looks- but my favorite is the fried egg- haha! Too great!
I'm going as Lady Gaga for Halloween- not for the skankiness (I too am not a fan of that side of the holiday), but because I think she is completely awesome ;)

ps- I'm short too and was worried about the thigh-highs making me looks shorter, but I think it helps to wear them with black leggings- they would look great on you!

Gwen S's costume is just plain odd! An egg? :x
