Halloween Glam: Cruella de Vil

Ah, yes, it's that time of year again! Halloween is just around the corner, and if you're anything like me, you didn't start planning early enough...and are now feeling a bit strapped for time. Time to start searching!

I've always loved being creative with my costumes, incorporating both new and old elements together to create my vision. I usually go with a few ideas in mind when I start searching, and this year, my top costume ideas were Cruella de Vil, The Contessa from American Horror Story Hotel, and Liv Moore from iZombie.

So I headed over to Value Village (of course- you know this is my usual shopping sweet spot) to see what I could find! I always start by looking through the thrifted clothes first, and then follow up with a look through their brand new Halloween items to fill in the blanks with that I couldn't find amongst the thrifted clothes. I found the perfect vintage fur coat that fit the bill for Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations, and a LBD and red heels to match...then I headed over to the new Halloween section to find a cigarette holder, red gloves, and a wig. There wasn't a half white half black wig, so I also picked up a can of hair spray colour in black for a little DIY hair 'do. And voilĂ ! A fabulous fashion-forward costume ready for Halloween.

If you're looking for a costume on a budget, your best bet is to check out Value Village- it was absolutely packed when I was there on the weekend! Need some costume inspiration? I'd recommend browsing their new bagged costumes- sometimes these will spark an awesome idea, and then you can search the thrifted items to re-create it!
