Easy Retro Costume Ideas - an oldie, but a goodie

Hi friends! Last year around this time I was already past my due date with Lydia and larger than life so I'd decided I wasn't going to dress up for Halloween, but when the spooky day came and she still hadn't arrived so I decided it was a shame not to do at least a little something for one of my favorite holidays, so I whipped out my curling iron and my red lipstick and was a pretty great Rosie within about 10 minutes! 

That being said I've been getting many emails and requests for these retro styles from people that I think these oldies have been missed. So here they are in case you're on the hunt for a last-minute easy and fun Halloween costume, since mostly you just need your hair and a cat-eye to pull every one of these off!
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11 // 12 

I'd love to hear which of these is your favorite, and if you've ever done any of these tutorials or used them as inspiration, and also if you have plans to use one for Halloween or anything else in the future!

Thanks so much for visiting and reading, and I hope you have a great rest of your day!
