The best part of prom? Definitely picking out and wearing your gorgeous gown. The worst part of prom? Never finding a time to wear it again and having your dress sit in your closet for years and years. But what if I told you that you could wear it again? Halloween is the perfect time to have fun with your costume and reuse your prom dress. Since you already have a dress as the base of the costume, all you have to do is get a few accessories to really go through with that look. You’ll look fabulous and save money by wearing something you already own! We came up with a few creative and simple ways of how to turn your prom dress into a Halloween costume so that your beautiful dress can be worn more than once!
You felt like a princess at prom so why can’t you actually be one on Halloween? This look is so easy and you’ll feel beautiful no matter what. Take your prom dress, preferably pink like style S7760, add a crown, and you’re ready to go! For the beauty look, add some makeup and pink lipstick and you’ll be the belle of the ball (or Halloween party).
Who hasn’t dreamt of working it on a pageant stage? All eyes will be on you when you take your glitzy prom dress, maybe style 7331, and add a sash and tiara. Finish this look off with a glam makeup look and an updo. You’ll definitely score highest with the judges if you go with this one!
This is the perfect costume if you wore a white dress to prom, like style 7774. Simply add some gory make-up, a wedding vale, and you’ve transformed into zombie bride. If you’re never going to wear your dress again, maybe even add some rips or red paint to the dress to add to the effect. Or you could skip out on the gore makeup altogether and just go as a bride!
This costume would be great for a dark colored prom dress, such as style 7540. Simply add a witches hat and you’re ready to cast spells! You could go for a darker beauty look with a smokey eye and heels to finish off the look.
You’ll put your sparkly prom dress, such as S7719, to good use with this one! S7719 is also a great style for this costume because it’s a two-piece so you can wear a different top or bottom if you want to! If you decide to just wear the top, pair it with a fun tulle skirt to add to your magical look. You’ll twinkle the whole night away when you complete the look with fairy wings, a wand, and glittery make-up.
