Apple & Moses
Why: Fresh produce and the Bible are both good for you and should be imbibed whenever possible. Plus, it's pretty hilarious, if you ask me.
How: A red apple costume will make you look like, well, an apple, and a long white robe cinched at the waist with a rustic rope belt, shepherds crook and piece of stone with the ten commandments written on it will have you moses-tastic! Oh, and don't forget the overflowing white wig and beard. Best of all, if you have a third person, he or she could go simply as goop.
Simon Doonan & Jonathan Adler
Why: Doonan's new book, The Asylum has him at the forefront of pop culture. Plus, it's always the right time to celebrate the first couple of design.
How: Doonan favors paisleys and kooky prints and always seems to be wearing a smartly tailored sports coat. Jonathan loves colors and cashmere; think bright pinstriped button down peeking over the collar of an even an brighter sweater. Throw in a few telltale accoutrements, like a copy of The Asylum and one of Jonathan's signature pots or pillows, and you're good to go!
Adèle & Emma
Who: Blue is the Warmest Color's lead characters Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) and her lover, Emma, a blue haired art student (Lea Seydoux).
Why: Despite all the buzz (lesbian sex scene, oh my!), this Palm d'Or winning movie doesn't yet have a scheduled release date in the States, which means you'll be way ahead of the curve in this costume. And isn't that what being hipster is all about?
How: Since the movie isn't out yet, you can't really go wrong with the costume. For the ingenue, Emma, channel French teen, as she is only 15 when the film starts. Obviously, a short blue wig is in order for Emma, along with artsy denim-filled layers.
Miley & (INSERT NOUN HERE)
Who: The latest in the line of Disney princesses to hurt our achy breaky hearts by going from Hannah Montana to hella mad crazy.
Why: Yes, Miley is low-hanging fruit this year, and we've already maximized our fruit intake for one post; however, there are some clever possibilities. The key to the Miley Cyrus costume will be creativity and depth. How imaginative can you go?
How: Miley and Robin Thicke or a Miley and giant foam finger is obvious. Try doing Miley and her wrecking ball, Miley and a tongue or even Miley through the years, from Hannah Montana to Liam to today. This costume goes way beyond two people. If you want to win the war of the omnipotent Mileys this October 31, form an army of Ms.Cyrus' and her trademark looks, accessories and moments in time.
