October 2008 - AlwaysForMe.com’s Halloween Costume Solution Tips

THIS MONTH'S FEATURE: AlwaysForMe.com’s Halloween Costume Solution Tips 

October is a time of falling leaves, warming fires, and of course, Halloween tricks and or treats. Too often, Halloween is more trick than treat for plus size women. We tend to avoid the Halloween festivities because of the limited number of affordable plus size costumes available today. It’s near impossible to find a plus size costume that is comfortable, made from quality materials, or modest enough. AlwaysForMe.com has your Halloween costume solution with several suggestions that incorporate a great Always For Me plus size swim suit! 

The internationally famous Goddess plus size swim suit (style #K80516) is the perfect foundation of a great 40’s-style plus size pin-up costume. Channel Ava Gardner when you pair it with Mary Jane pumps, a 40’s bob, and bright lipstick. Go for the Marilyn Monroe cover girl look by pairing your suit with a colorful beach ball and tossing it alluringly. 

What do you get when you take Miraclesuit’s Plus Size Oceanus one piece (Style # 63188W), add a grass skirt, pretty sandals, a tropical lei, and a fresh flower in your hair (ukulele optional)? An easy to assemble (and affordable!) Hawaiian hula girl costume, of course! 

An easy plus size costume to create at home right out of your workout closet is a cat burglar in all black. Make Cary Grant want to chase you across rooftops with a pair of cotton lycra ankle pants (Style #4501),or boot cut yoga pants (style#3687) paired with a racer back tank top (style #3556). Add a black eye mask, black gloves and a watch cap and you’re ready to prowl. For even more fun, sling a black satchel over your shoulder and hold strands of rhinestone costume jewelry in your hand. If you want to be even more literal, tuck a stuffed animal cat under your arm! 

Another fun plus size costume you can make from your workout wear is a be-bop beatnik. Team your Danskin Capris (style #3451) with the racer back top (style #3556), add flat Keds , Ray-Bands and a scarf around your neck. You’ll be reciting poetry that doesn’t rhyme and discussing Kerouac with Halloween party-goers before you know it. 

Remember the days of the drive-in restaurant where the waitress rolled up to your window on roller skates? Relive those days in this fun, fifties inspired plus size car hop costume. Take AlwaysForMe's classic plus size swimsuit, the twist front swim mini (Style #67164W), and add a name badge to the front (apron optional). Then, don a paper hat, grab your order pad, lace up your skates and get ready to roll! 

Take the twist front bandeau one piece in black (Style #67163W), add a white menswear paper collar and cuffs, borrow the kids old Easter bunny ears headband, and slap a white powder puff on the back of the suit. Add the highest heels you’ve got and you’ll be ready to head to the Mansion for some fun!
