You know my least favorite thing about Halloween? It’s those stale, cheap looking Halloween costumes. You know the ones that come from the Halloween supply store. They never fit right, there aren’t enough varieties, and the materials look cheap! They are no bueno.
On the flipside, one of my favorite Halloween hacks is to use vintage clothing as a Halloween costume. We even wrote a blog about it here. It’s the perfect way to step out of the box with fun and unique costume ideas.
But if you want to go a step above and beyond to the most lush, amazing, swoon worthy Halloween costumes, you should definitely hop on over to Etsy. There are MANY shops dedicated to perfectly assembled, interesting costumes, that are of the best quality you will ever see.
I collected some of my favorites into this blog of 12 different Halloween costume ideas. All of them feature handcrafted gorgeous costumes that are of so fun! Check it out.
