Halloween is quickly approaching and our friends over at GreatGets.com seem to be getting back into one of the many things they do well – putting together fun & creative Halloween costume ideas. Today they posted these fabulous Orange is the New Black Group Costume Ideas. We especially like that all the Orange is the New Black Halloween costume ideas are so simple yet work so well together as a group. Plus, they fit any and every woman no matter her shape, size, or age. Think orange scrubs and tan scrubs, work shoes, and ID badges.

Every once in a while I come across a picture or a photo that inspires me. This one popped up on my Facebook feed. Admittedly, I am extremely biased but my niece's gorgeous piercing blue eyes staring out from behind that incredible Venetian blue and gold mask made me wonder if this Halloween rather than donning the usual scary costume or sexy fantasy costume we might consider more refined, almost elegant Halloween attire. I must admit, after my truly scary Halloween experience being stalked by a crazy dressed in a Clockwork Orange costume, I get a bit freaked out by Halloween. Sometimes I believe Halloween is used as an excuse for people to “try on” behaviors and personae that are unacceptable in every day life. But I digress.
The point of this post is to suggest switching it up this Halloween – rather than spend a fortune on a one wear costume, raid your closet or better yet buy yourself that long coveted cocktail dress you can wear again and again and add a stunning Venetian mask. You can even create a couples Venetian mask that is both easy and fabulous or join forces with your girlfriends and together make a jaw dropping entrance. (This would make a great teen costume too especially if all of your friends wore different but coordinating masks!!) Elegance is forever chic and always sexy!
