How We Wore It: Halloween Costumes

Hello, friends! Hannah here to help with your Halloween costume search. It can seem like a daunting task to find your perfect Halloween costume. The struggle is so real.

With 13 days left until Halloween, the Shaped By Style girls are here to share with you our favorite non-store bought costumes from Halloween pasts. Hopefully they will inspire you to dig through your closet and see costume potential in your everyday clothes.


Kristina dresses with such whimsy in her everyday life that it makes sense for her costumes to be filled with just as much fun and imagination. Her take on the Queen of Hearts, from Alice in Wonderland, is such a scream!

It’s simple to recreate for yourself with lots of fanciful red clothes and killer hair & makeup skills.

Get a closer look of Kristina’s costume on her blog, if you dare.


Hannah took inspiration from something we probably look at everyday – tv! This costume was inspired by the ’90s super villain Carmen Sandiego of Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego fame.

Wearing a bold red lip wasn’t much of a departure from her everyday outfits which made this costume easy to put together.

Track down this costume on The Outfit Repeater.



Skye has an eye for weird & wonderful clothes which is why it makes sense that her costume is the Mad Hatter. (Her and Kristina should trick’or’treat together, eh?)

She completely captured the over-the-top personality of the Hatter and was still true to her personal style.

Deer Lyndsey, your makeup skills never cease to amaze us. Signed, everyone.

You know what makes this beautiful deer look better? The fact that Lyndsey made a step-by-step video tutorial so you can get this same face. Watch the full video on Dressed in Mascara.
