Halloween is the time to put on a masquerade. A masquerade party, by definition, is a party where everyone attends wearing a mask. Well, on Halloween, that’s a definite given! Masquerade parties allow you to adopt new personas. As per their 15th century beginnings, they allowed people to wear clothing they wouldn’t normally wear. Enjoying yourself while remaining anonymous is what makes these parties so alluring.
But if you’re running late or found a party to go to last minute, a masquerade costume is so easy to make! Literally, all you need is a mask, and boom – masquerade!
There’s no reason to be boring about it, though! Use this time to wear an outfit you wouldn’t normally wear! Just pick your favorite color and GO!
Start with a satin lace up corset in your most favoritest color! From there, find a pair of shoes that match, like these red peep toe crystal encrusted heels! You’ll definitely need something to carry your car keys in, but not something you want to worry about holding the whole time, so this red satin rose wristlet with rhinestone handle is perfect for dangling on your arm without being too big to think about. And its rose design looks like part of your costume! Add a long ballgown type skirt and a red chiffon scarf to keep your shoulders warm, too! Last, but definitely not least, a tiny top hat for the crowning finish!
Sometimes you want to be sexy, but not show too much skin! There’s definitely a place for subtle sexy elegance on Halloween! All it takes is one inherently sexy item in your costume arsenal! The CORSET!
If you’ve been paying attention to our posts, you’ll notice our beautiful corsets taking center stage in all of our costume ideas! But you don’t have to show as much skin as we’ve been indicating in most of our posts! You can absolutely be sexy and still be covered up! You THINK it’s the outfit, but it’s really your attitude! Confidence is sexy!
By now you’ve pretty much seen a TON of DIY Halloween costume ideas from us, and believe me, they are so much more fun to make than buy readymade at the store! I truly believe that the most fun of Halloween is at the getting ready part! Some of the costumes we’ve put together have been fun, sexy, silly and like our last post, pretty hilarious. If you’ve learned anything by now, it’s that you can make anything sexy. You can even become a sexy Donut by wearing a pair of beige or brown leggings, a gold or yellow corset, and wrapping a pink chiffon scarf around your neck that you’ve bedecked with tube beads to look like sprinkles. Voila, sexy donut! And hilarity ensues!
This costume is one we haven’t yet come up with (don’t know how this one got missed!) but our Emerald Green Satin Corset can be paired with the popular “mermaid leggings” but instead of seashells in your hair, add a couple of spikes or dragon headband and boom you’re a dinosaur! Or lizard! Or dragon! Long nails, lizard-y earrings can complete the look. All you need is a green sequined embellished clutch and a pair of sequined black heels and BOOM you’re a magical reptile!
Okay, let’s admit it. There are times when we get invited to a party and we already make up our minds that we aren’t going. Maybe you have to work early the next day or the people there are just blah. So you make plans to Netflix and chill at home by yourself, put a bucket of candy outside the door with a sign that says “Please take one!” and hope the neighborhood kids don’t just grab the bucket and run, leaving your front door a target for fresh eggs! Then your best friend calls an hour before a GREAT Halloween party and somehow cajoles you into going! Well, you can’t just show up as NOTHING, can you? But how can you pull off a costume at the last minute? HOW?
Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Here’s how!
First, grab a sexy top to wear, like a satin corset. Next, find a silly bottom garment to wear, like a grass skirt! Of course, you have to somehow tie the two pieces together, so a floral lei that matches the corset can bridge them together. A rose wristlet can carry your essentials while still looking part of this costume. And of course, if you’re going to go full crazy, may as well dig out a pair of wings from LAST year’s Halloween party and crystal stiletto heels (that you chose to go to, incidentally) and boom, there you are! A Flower Fairy Hula Angel!
Now this is just one example, but you can absolutely create your own type of crazy costume based around any one of Chicastic’s satin corsets!
Looking for a sexy, yet hilarious Halloween costume? Take a cue from America’s favorite underwear company and dress up as a sexy bunch of grapes! Instead of a body suit, pick up one of these purple satin corsets and tie a TON of purple balloons around your waist! (but wait till you get to the bar or you’ll never fit in the car!). Carry a green crystal clutch, wrap a green chiffon scarf around your neck and finish your look with a pair of purple crystal heels!
How much fun would it be to be a celebrity for a day? Lucky for you, Halloween is just around the corner and your favorite celebrities are always fun costume options! Here are a couple of ideas to kickstart your holiday!
Kim Kardashian is seriously the IT girl of this decade. Her fame and notoriety has outlasted last decade’s IT girl and former boss, Paris Hilton. Kim is known for her gorgeous black hair, which can be mimicked easily with a luxurious wig. Her eyelashes are iconic and if you aren’t as lucky to be blessed with lashes like hers, falsies can easily solve that problem.
Nicki Minaj is also another celebrity known for her exaggerated curves and multicolored hair! Sporting a very different look than Kim Kardashian, Minaj is known for brighter colors. Highlight your inner Minaj with a pink satin corset. With dramatic lashes of her own, a pair of false lashes can really play up your look. A pair of gold rhinestone heels can really kick up this costume!
Last but not least, Caitlin Jenner was another celebrity hot off the tabloids. Fresh from the cover of Vanity Fair, you can recreate this look with a white satin corset, a pair of white boy shorts and a pair of silver rhinestone crystal high heels. Carry your essentials in a matching white satin clutch purse, and you’re ready for your own magazine cover!
If you were a kid during the 90’s, chances are you were familiar with the Japanese cartoon Sailor Moon! It’s about a group of extraordinary teenage girls who fight evil by the light of the moon! The song was real catchy, too! If you aren’t familiar, check it out HERE!
Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts costumes are SO easy to make! You may even be able to put one together with items from your own closet, if you’re in a pinch! Of course, a little more sophisticated and grown up, of course! Why not?
First, start with either one of Chicastic’s White Satin Corsets or White Lace Corsets (the material doesn’t matter, it’s how you style it that will get your point across!). Add a short blue skirt (for Sailor Moon – the other Sailor Scouts wear different colored skirts). Attach a bow to the front of your corset, and attach smaller matching bows to the arms of white satin gloves. Instead of the iconic red boots, wear a pair of crystal red rhinestone heels! Carry a neon yellow clutch to mimic Sailor Moon’s hair and her moon symbol! Wrap a blue chiffon scarf around your neck to symbolize the sailor collar and you’re done!
The best part about Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts costumes is that you can modify certain pieces to represent each of the girls, creating one epic group theme costume! Match your scarf, skirt, and clutch to that of your favorite Sailor Scout and there you go!
Frida Kahlo is one of the most influential artists ever to live. Her art documents her physical and mental anguish after a bus accident left her permanently disabled. Some of her paintings also detail her relationship with artist Diego Rivera. Her signature look is her own homage to her heritage, of which she was very proud.
Make em’ howl this Halloween with this super sexy Black Wolf costume! After finding this gorgeous mask, we HAD to create a costume around it! Pair one of our sexy satin corsets (available in Blue, Navy Blue and Sky Blue) with a matching blue crystal heel. Wear some faux fur booty shorts, and add fur leg warmers to finish the look! Carry your essentials in one of our knuckle duster clutches for added awesomeness!
For an alternative costume, try a horse mask or horse head for a “Sexy Clydesdale” look. Any animal mask would work, really, as long as the corset you choose pulls the color from the mask or makeup you decide on. Luckily for you, Chicastic has an amazing selection of satin corsets in various colors!
