Halloween Inspiration: 'American Horror Story: Freak Show'
Posted on October 16 2014
It's that time of year again! As many of you know, we take Halloween seriously—the chance to dress up and transform ourselves into something ghoulish, funny, or outrageous is just too good to pass up. So, dear Lille readers, join us as we once again countdown with our lingerie-inspired guide to the best costume ever! 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' is perhaps the best way to start us off this time around. Disturbing and twisted, but with a strange retro charm, it affords a number of costume opportunities, all with a sinister nostalgic twinge. We love the idea of the vintage-inspired ringleader: a top hat, blazer over a bodysuit like the Low-Back or Show-Off styles, plus fishnets or stay-ups, and a whip or crop to finish it off. A creepy clown is also fun (depending on who you ask, I guess): get creative with the face paint, then don a pair of striped pajamas like the Lounge Stripes or Sleep Chic set from Eberjey. Or, lastly, play the part of the captivating acrobat in a color-blocked suit like the Elmar One-Piece—get a sparkly headpiece and bring a hula hoop to show off your skills. Regardless of which part you choose, you'll be the star of your Halloween spectacle!
