Calling out the true lovers of Halloween… You know who you are, because you started planning this year’s party… last year! Well, just in case you haven’t made any final commitments to themes or costumes, we found some things that are going to thrill you! Lyst and Pinterest predicted some of the best “Costume and Décor Trends of 2017.”
Costumes are jumping right off the screens of television and film, with characters like Rick & Morty, Wonder Woman, Pennywise the Dancing Clown (yikes!), and of course the #1 costume this year (drum roll pleeeeeease)… Eleven from the hit Netflix Original “Stranger Things”!
Top 10 List:
Pennywise, the clown from “It” (double yikes!)
The kids from Stranger Things
Belle from Beauty and the Beast
Characters from Game of Thrones (my two favorites, Jon Snow & Daenerys)
Top 3 DIY Halloween Costumes
Sirens (Half woman half bird creature luring sailors into danger with their enchanting music)
Unicorns (This one also made the top 10 store bought list)
Creative Graphic Tees (How creative can you be with a t-shirt?)
While shopping for costumes can be spooky fun, making your own costume ensures you're not at risk of running into your twin at any party! (Unless you want to be a twin at your own party). Trendsetters say “keep it light this year.” You will hit it out of the ballpark if you add some flashing bling and turn down the gruesome creepy. Fairytale creatures are taking over and they are bringing sparkle, rainbows, and bright colors with them! (Oh my!)
Top 3 Must Have Party Trends
Candy Colored Skulls (in pastel colors these will be a big hit)
Pun-kins (i.e. “Witch better have my candy” or “I came for the boos” written on pumpkins)
Realistic Bugs (bug lovers, this is your chance to shine)
A great costume is a good start, but to be the hostess with the mostest, you've got to get your Halloween Décor (#DIY or #DIE), on board with this year’s colorful trends! Pink and purple have always been an alternative Halloween fav, but pastel colors is where it’s at this year! Spray paint a variety of real or artificial pumpkins in Easter pastels and you'll get a fun twist on the classic orange pumpkin! #colormecandy
