Go as a Roy Lichtenstein painting Turn yourself into Sixties pop art by painting your face in contrasting dots and exaggerated shadow lines. Pair with an early Sixties hair style (or wig) and a simple wiggle dress.

Reply Dina October 23rd, 2013 Great ideas! However I have to add one note. Frida Kahlo always wore a floor-length skirt. Reply Hannah October 23rd, 2013 I believe Tipi Hedren’s dress was green, not grey or blue. Still a marvelous list though 🙂 Reply Adrianna October 24th, 2013 Love these, especially the silent movie star! I created my “witchy” outfit with a few pieces from my closet, check it out here: http://aakinal.com/im-not-a-witch/ Reply Melissa November 1st, 2013 Love the silent movie outfit – perfect combination of vintage spooky! x Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
