Halloween Costume Idea #2: Penny Lane
Who can resist sighing when they hear that sexy, low voice, saying, “Never take it seriously, you never get hurt. Never get hurt, you can always have fun. And if you ever get lonely, you just go to the record store and visit all your friends.”?
Those words personify the elusive cool of Almost Famous’s Penny Lane. And that, perhaps, is the most important part of this costume – the attitude. Of course, a great outfit helps too. Find a pair of high-rise, true-blue jeans, and an airy bohemian top. Crochet or dreamy lace embodies that hippie Band-Aid attitude perfectly. You can’t go wrong with lots of texture – fringe, bulky stitches… the Band-Aids embody an eclectic, chic style.
Worried about freezing in that chilly October eve? Even when the temperature drops to the 50’s and 60’s, you can throw on a heavy shag coat or a shawl with lots of fringe. So curl your hair and become Penny Lane, and don’t forget that low, slow voice. This idea can also be extended to a group; if your friends are at a loss for Halloween costumes of their own, gather them up and form a group of your own crazy cool Band-Aids.
