OUR HALLOWEEN LOOKBOOK IS HERE!
Halloween can be a fun and hilarious season where we get to try on new avatars, express ourselves through costume, or enact our favorite puns in clothing form. It can also be a wasteful time of year that contributes to the damage fast fashion is already doing to our environment. That’s why we put together our lookbook of costumes made entirely from Temple Ro, items you probably already have, and a few pieces from a thrift store. And if none of our suggestions sound interesting, we suggest writing “Dave” on a name tag and keeping it simple before you spend a ton of money on a costume you’ll only wear once. (Unless your name is Dave, in which case we suggest Delilah.)
Ruth Bader ginsbug
Our favorite super hero, The Notorious RBG! Items for this look:
Robe - The AFE Robe in Black
Glasses - our designer already owned these
Earrings - found at Community Thrift in SF, a non-profit where sales benefit over 175 charities
Dissent Collar - we cut this off the bottom of an old shirt. A doily would also work!
Badass stand for women, equal rights, and the constitution - we’re guessing you already have these
a car wash
Group costume idea! We couldn’t stop laughing at this one! Wash random cars on the street, wash people at a party (get consent), or carry around a toy car and wash it all night long. LOL. Items used for this look:
Dad joke costume! We couldn’t resist this pun. Items for this look:
Earrings - Community Thrift in SF
Lock - we used a bike lock from a friend, but a padlock, a diary lock, chains with a lock, or any combo you happen to have would work
Nothing don't mean nothing, honey, if it ain't free! We had to do Janis with our Gold Sophies. We hope she’d approve. Items for this look:
Scarves - vintage scarves we already had on hand
Crochet vest - found at Buffalo Exchange on Haight Street. We’ll wear again!
Round glasses from Wild Feather on Haight Street in SF.
Faux Fur Headband - our designer received this as a gift years ago, but there are other great faux fur hats out there like the one Janis rocked.
Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to honor our favorite visionary and musical genius. Items used for this look:
Sophie Bells in Royalty (the Royalty Jumpsuit would work too!)
The Coco Vest (back in stock in a slightly different fabric next week!)
Cuffs and Ascot - Parts of an old shirt that we cut and pinned
Sunglasses - Wild Feather. They also carry the three lense third eye sunnies he made famous!
You may have to look twice to catch this one! We suggest quietly lieing down behind people and letting them discover what you are. Trust us, it’s funny every time.
Items for this look:
The Snap Sweater in Black
Paparazzi Visor - from Saint Chic
