October is finally here which means that the spookiest night of the year, Old Hallow’s Eve, is right around the corner!
However, before you dive into piles of trick or treat candy, bob for apples, or start doing the monster mash, there’s one crucial question to consider: What are you going to dress up as for Halloween 2012? If you’ve spent countless hours wracking your brain for a brilliant and scary costume idea, then you’re in luck because we’ve got an easy and downright A-mazing option — A from Pretty Little Liars! (Check out pics from the PLL black hoodie party for inspiration on how to put a personal spin on this fierce and oh-so-menacing look.)
Here’s a quick list of what you’ll need to transform from a sane, pleasant person and into Rosewood’s most twisted mastermind:
Black HoodieIf there's anything you'll for sure to take on the role of Rosewood's creepiest lurker, it's a plain black hoodie. It doesn't need to be expensive nor fancy -- as long as it has a hood and drawstrings than you're good to go!
An Air of MysteryGot a secret? Then make sure you keep it. You never want to give too much away as A.
Always leave those pretty little liars guessing...
Black BootsA is sassy and nothing defines this attitude better than a pair of designer combat boots. Granted, not all of us live in Rosewood mansions where everyone's rolling the Benjamins, so a pair of sneakers, flats, or Oxfords will do just fine. Just make sure your shoes are comfortable because, as A, you always need to be able to run away from the scene of a crime. (And by crime we mean taking an extra piece of candy from a Halloween candy basket...nothing crazy now, you hear us?)
A Cell PhoneA's weapon, aside from his/her eerie yet enjoyable wit, is a smartphone. So whip out those suckers and get ready to text some anonymous notes to Aria, Spencer, Emily, and Hanna! (And to kick things up a notch, go ahead and block that number. Holla.)
Leather GlovesLeather gloves are a staple in A's wardrobe but if it's too hot outside, feel free to slip them off. Still, you don't want to leave fingerprint traces anywhere ---especially if you need to rifle through Spencer's room to sabotage her or if you have to buckle in a doll in Emily's car -- so we beg you to reconsider. Moreover, they look kind of chic so there's that element to consider as well!
Jungle Red LipstickWhether you want to plump up your pout for a femme fatale vibe or scribble on your best friend's mirror (which isn't the best idea -- that stuff's hard to get off, yo), jungle red lipstick will get the job done!
Be CleverGo wild with the punning and inside Pretty Little Liars humor. You're free to use the term "biotch" on this night only but if that feels too risque even as A, than get creative with the scandalous language. Some of A's typical terms of "endearment" include girlies, chickadees, liars, and pretties.
Black Hoodie with a ZipperIf it's warm where you live, we suggest a hoodie with a zipper so that way you can easily remove it when you feel yourself burning up.
A Fierce ExpressionDon't blink. Don't flinch. Don't you dare crack a smile. Crazy "A" is as badass as they come and all your homies better recognize. Just imagine that you're strutting down on a long runway with a vicious, hungry look in your eyes that says, "It's open season on Liars and I'm hunting, bitches."
Please do not actually hurt or terrorize anyone. Just look as though like you want to...
Black Skinny Pants (Girls)Skinny jeans are comfortable, stretchy, and they look great on all body shapes. Plus, you'll want to balance the baggy sweatshirt with something a little more tailored so these pants would be the perfect match!
Black Jeans for GuysThe pants should be fitted but not to tight. Think "motorcycle stud" or "Greaser" when it comes to donning A-inspired pants on Halloween.
Mona as an A team memberCan you be sexy, mysterious, and frightening all at the same time? Yes! And here to demonstrate how to rock a female A team member look is none other than Mona "Bitch Crazy" Vanderwaal.
