The most iconic unibrow in the world is that of Frida Kahlo. And if there’s one thing we can learn from Frida, it’s to embrace your facial hair. Last year I dressed up as the iconic Mexican painter Frida Kahlo for work and won best costume in the process! If you have some eclectic pieces and flowers, this will be an ideal costume for you.

Halloween Costumes In Your Closet: Sandy from Grease

One of the most memorable on-screen makeovers of all time is Sandy Olsen in Grease. Once I had the blonde wig, it suddenly became obvious that an easy costume idea would be was Sandy from Grease. You can add this to the rank of easy black Halloween costume (Think Charlie Chaplain, Morticia Addams, Cruella De Vil, Wicked Witch of the West, Carmen Sandiego…) that require very little effort!

Costume Components

  • Blonde wig
  • Dramatic eye makeup
  • Big earrings
  • Black V-neck shirt or over the shoulder top
  • Leather pants or liquid leggings
  • Red shoes
  • Bonus points if you can rope your man into going as Danny
