An American in Paris
For Lise, find a yellow dress at a thrift store and throw a petticoat on under it. For Jerry, use a blue button down, with rolled sleeves, a pair of slacks, and some classic wingtips. Now… work on your choreography!
Red is a HUGE color this season! Sounds like the perfect time to bring Kinky Boots back into style.
Okay, so Halloween isn’t on a Wednesday this year… But it looks like you’ll be wearing pink anyways. Don’t be fetch. Grab the pinkest outfits you can find for this group costume idea!
Grab your best sequins! You’ll need a silver sequin theme to pull of Roxie this Halloween, and black for Velma.
You’re definitely going to need every bit of costume jewelry you own for this dynamic pair. For Elizabeth, try using soft pinks and gold metals. For Helena, a bright blue midi skirt, and lace top. Grab those t-strap characters heels, too!
This costume is sure to serve up a win at any couples contest. Grab some blue slacks, a navy pullover sweater, and navy slacks for Dr. Pomatter. Is Jenna in your future? Look for a short sleeved blue dress with a white apron! Don’t forget the “Perfectly Pumpkin Pie.”
Dear Evan Hansen
This Tony winner is an easy to pull together costume and you MIGHT just have these items in your closet! For Zoe, use your best medallion print blouse and blue jeans. For Evan, khakis and a striped polo are perfect. +10 for you if you make a paper mache cast.
