ITS FINALLY OCTOBER! Aside from Christmas, I put my 110% into Halloween. From decorating to baking and movie marathons to dressing up Halloween is incorporated in all of them. With that being said this month I am sharing two halloween costume ideas each week leading up to October 31st.

This weeks theme is TV SHOW CHARACTERS and I picked none other than the infamous Rachel Green from Friends and Serena Van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl. I picked these two iconic characters because not only were they my favorite characters during the airing of the shows but they represent a strong independent women. These costumes were very easy to put together and I guarantee you will have half of the pieces hanging in your closet somewhere. I think I only spent about $15 dollars for both costumes combined. See below how I came up with the look and try and recreate them yourselves!

Happy Halloween!

RACHEL GREEN – Friends Tv Show

This look was so easy and I bet you could recreate with things you already have in your closet. I simply found a black dress, stocking, heels and a white apron. For props I printed out the logo of the “Central Perk” coffee shop which Rachel Greens character is known for working at during the show and pinned it to my apron (this is a very inexpensive alternative instead of buying the apron online). Another prop I used which I feel completes the look is holding a coffee pot which she is seen many times holding as a waitress on the show so I thought it would be fitting to include it.

This was another easy look to throw together! I actually had a green plaid/tartan skirt from a previous costume years ago (but if you don’t I linked some inexpensive ones below). Then just grab a black tie (odds are your brother, boyfriend or Dad will have one) and a white button down shirt. In Gossip Girl, Serena is known as the rule breaker so instead of going to school all polished and neat – I left my shirt untucked and messy which is the mood she conveys throughout the show. If you want to go that extra mile for your Instagram photo I used props like fashion books, a coffee cup and a designer handbag/book bag to complete look.

I love these TV shows and so it was really fun to be creative and put together looks that I think best resembled my favorite characters. I suggest you pick your favorite TV show characters and create looks/costumes you think they’d wear! Let me know if you try my costumes out in the comment section below.
