So I'm looking to either combine things I have or make something for a Halloween costume. My dilemma is that I want to look cute and/or sexy for going out with my friends and boyfriend that night but I'm also a teacher in a school for 3rd- high school so I can't go too revealing. I'm willing to put on some pants under a skirt if it ends up being short but I'm looking for help on this one. Any suggestions would be great! Thanks in advance!!

Last year I went as Minnie and wore a strapless dress with black tights. During school (I'm also a teacher) I wore a tight black shirt but it was because I couldn't complete a matching shrug in time.

This year I made a zebra romper. Basically a hoodie and shorts sewn together. I got many compliments for both so far, but the romper is so far my favorite!

Interesting idea, Thanks for the advice, I'm not sure if my school does Halloween yet since I'll start in about a week and a half, but i don't want to be caught with just revealing things in the costume closet. Plus I want to dress up for me anyway!

You will probably find more help on our Halloween Board. Minnie sounds like a good, family friendly idea. Or other childhood characters such as Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz.

If you choose a costume with a hat that has a very well-defined character to it, the hat alone can stand in as a costume. For example, spending your money or time making one really good cone-head, bunny, cat, or princess hat allows you to wear regular clothes and yet still be understood to be 'in character'. It has the added benefit of being able to take off the costume if you need to go somewhere where you don't want to wear it after school or wear comfortable clothes if you need to do things that a costume would be very clumsy would make difficult. Finally, having the one good piece will last you though many impromtu parties that you don't know what to go as or didn't have time to make a new costume if you keep it and you can continue to upgrade the rest of your costume or modify that piece into different costumes. For example - This year in school you might just wear bunny ears and to the party later you will go as Jessica Rabbit from the 'Rodger Rabbit' movie but at Easter you will be a cute white Easter bunny and somewhere down the line the ears may end up on your boyfriend's head - Silly Rabbit! Trix are for kids!
