It's here again and even though Halloween is an old (I mean really old) holiday, the stylistas are giving fresh advice for 2014.
Thank you to my BFF's S-I-Ls Rhonda and Sandy, owners of the L.A. costume shop that is popular with film studios,
for this costume outlook:
For girls: Frozen princesses
For boys: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
For everyone: Minions
For men: pirates
For women: scary, violent (zombies - ewwww)
My favorite: superheroes
Come on people, pirates and zombies have been making headlines for what, a dozen or so years? Let's think of something new for 2015.
The trends for decor:
monochromatic: black, white, silver and gray
If you must have color (I must), add:
citron green and purple to your orange melange
or autumn hues of red, gold, brown, yellow
Edgar Allen Poe (always)
Steampunk with gears, watches, spectacles
Dia de Los Muertos sugar skulls
bats, spiders, pumpkins and cats
Medieval castle (Macbeth) with heraldry, stone, urns,
plaid and tapestries instead of a torture chamber
You can still serve glow-in-the-dark punch
Don't forget to pick up your copy of
A Harvest and Halloween Handbook
And please join host Kim Power Stilson and me for a Halloween chat on BYU SiriusXM Radio 143 on
Wednesday October 29th at 3:00 p.m. Eastern.
See you then!
