Classic Halloween Costumes by Allyson Dykhuizen

I love dressing up for Halloween! I always seem to come up with the best costume idea ever in April, which Ive completely forgotten by October. As a bar hopping adult the classic costumes just dont cut it anymore; youve got to be super clever or elaborate to stand out in the crowd. But its good to have some old standbys on hand! A witch, a cat, Frankensteins Monster, and a fishbowl astronaut are easy to put together and better than nothing! So if you find yourself scrambling for costume ideas on October 30th, look no further than your newly stitched Halloween decoration for inspiration.
