When it comes to figuring out a Halloween costume, I become an obsessive compulsive maniac. Blame it on my New York City roots, but I'm permanently stuck in the mindset where anything worth doing was already done 30 seconds ago. That being said, a good costume has to be a perfectly executed combination of 40% creativity, 10% obscurity, and 100% confidence (we're working on a 150% scale, you get it). If that's too much pressure for you, you can follow this basic rule:
Amazing animal print jacket + tousled hair + face mask and/or animal ears = fool proof retro '60s Audrey Hepburn-meets-Julie Newmar sex kitten. Remember to keep it classy (read: PUT DOWN the tacky-ass American Apparel gold lame' leggings, IT'S BEEN DONE) otherwise you run the risk of duplicating that unforgettable "Mean Girls" Halloween party scene. God speed!
