Hair Themed Halloween Costumes

Hair Themed Halloween Costumes
by Kenny of Skinny-Kenny

Halloween is upon us everyone. I wanted to know if anyone was going to wear a Halloween costume which will feature natural hair? Maybe someone will dress as Diana Ross or Erykah Badu… or go for something historical like Nefertiti. I honestly can’t think of too many costumes which feature a woman’s natural hair @_@. Maybe you guys have thought of something clever that I haven’t!?

As for me, this year I think I am going to be Forest Whitaker’s Left eye!

CN Says:

I’ve got nothing. *kanye shrug*

But I’m definitely taking suggestions for Boog so we can pass out candy. If you recall last year, I had good intentions but ate all the candy a week before the big day… no one got to see the Angry Little Lady Bug but y’all. Not this year though… I’m not going candy shopping until Sunday 😉 Live and learn.

Need costume ideas, check out NaturallyCurly’s ideas, HERE and HERE.

    I was Mel B aka Scary Spice from the Spice girls. "If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my hair…" lol

  • Hxyzyn says:

    LOL, I'm going to be myself and probably just jump out of the bushes to scare kids that approach the house.

  • KinkyKK says:

    I agree with Foxy Brown, but my original fave is Tamara Dobson as Cleopatra Jones! Those yellow bell bottoms, that purple midriff top and all. that. hair!

  • Veronica says:

    Yesterday was the Halloween Carnival at my school, and I went as Beyonce, equipped with a fake pregnant belly, long gorgeous dark purple evening gown, killer heels, and of course my natural curls! I'm so glad my hair is now long enough so I can pull that off, I've been wanting to do this Halloween costume for a while.

    Dressing like the group LMFAO would require two people but natural hair would be also required as would shufflin'.

  • Kenya V says:

    I am dressing as Venus the Love Goddess – my hair is in micro braids, so I'll have flowing locks to match my outfit!

  • Sabrina says:

    Last year I was Foxy, but this year I'm gonna try the Janelle Monae pompadour!

    Pam Grier's Foxy Brown! DAYYUUMM hot!

    I was thinking of going as myself, though- that's scary enough!

    But, I was shopping in the pharmacy a few weeks ago and came across some Halloween eyelashes- long (like 2 in.) black with orange polka dots.
    I bought em and have been srtuggling to decide what to wear them with to create a costume. Lol!

    Perhaps I'll just ear all black and be some sort of insect/ bug.

  • Curly Film Chick says:

    I'm going as Frida Kahlo. I'm going to incorporate my natural hair for the costume so that counts right? =)
