Happy October 1st! As we all know, Halloween is coming up very soon! Now if you’re anything like me, you’re probably running around looking for a costume to wear on this fun holiday. And while costume shopping can be fun, it can be extremely frustrating as a plus size woman! Especially in a small town like Gainesville. A lot of costume stores don’t cater to full figured women and the costumes they do make in larger sizes tend to fit awkwardly.
Minnie Mouse is a particularly easy costume for those who live in the Sunshine State because chances are, you already own a pair of Minnie Mouse ears. You could do this costume a couple of different ways. First thing you’ll want to do is pull anything black and red (or pink and red depending on what color the bow is in your Minnie Mouse ears) out of your closet. Because dressing up as Minnie Mouse can be done in various ways, it’s up to you to decide what you want to pair with what. You could wear a black top with a red skirt and throw on some yellow or black heels or booties. If you own a red/black dress, pair it with yellow pumps and red lipstick and you’ll be good to go. Those are just a couple of ideas but I’m sure once you start trying different things on you’ll find what suits you best.
