Best Bollywood Halloween Outfit Ideas For This Season
The spookiest time of the year is here and you have to bring your A-game this Halloween. And if you are looking for some ideas, is there a better place than Bollywood to look for costume inspirations? Choose among these easy to recreate characters that suit your personality for your Trick or Treat evening!
The Spooky Manjulika –
Vidya Balan’s classical dancer alter ego in Bhool Bhulaiyaa is a classic cult character when it comes to Halloween. You can channel your inner Manjulika without having to spend a bomb. All you need is a yellow saree, red blouse, some dried-up gajra, and ghunguroos. Complete this look by smudging the makeup on your face and messy hair. If you are lazy and hate makeup and taking showers, this look is for you. Brownie points if you dance at midnight for no reason at all.
The Bollywood Hippie –
If you are a carefree person who loves traveling and often forget about the world around, you got to take inspiration from Bollywood’s iconic hippie look of Zeenat Aman in Hare Rama Hare Krishna. All you need are some big tinted glasses, a flower garland or beaded rudraksha mala, and finish the look with a red tikka. The best part is that the look is unisexual so pair it up with your friends.
The Hopeless Romantic –
Do you believe in the cliché romance and love stories or want to impress your crush who is a hopeless romantic? Then channel Shah Rukh’s ‘Mohabbatein’ with simple accessories. Wear a turtleneck and a cardigan casually hung over your shoulders with nerdy glasses. Don’t go overboard by challenging your boss at work or dean at college though.
The ‘Filmy’ Best Friends –
Do you have a best friend who loves Bollywood and loves the 90’s, then pair with him/her tonight to dress as SRK and Kajal’s unforgettable ‘Rahul and Anjali’from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. As Rahul, you can try on colorful oversized sweatshirts or printed shirt with pulled-back hair, retro silver lockets, and a clean-shaven face. For the Anjalis, wear any ill-fitting dungarees or denim and an athletic t-shirt with a big wide headband. Carry a basketball for the complete effect.
The ‘Bright’ Performer –
If you are a risk-taker, love the crowd’s attention, and want to brighten up your Halloween then this idea is custom-made for you. Remember Amitabh Bachchan’s Lightbulb suit from Yaarana in Saara Zamaana, steal the party’s thunder by sporting this look. Nowadays it shouldn’t even be that hard to re-create with LED light ropes from your neighborhood electronic shop. But we can’t guarantee the look to be a shock-free idea.
