Find yourself running into a last minute Halloween crisis? Never fear-Spanx is here! Whether you’re in need of a creative costume to chaperone a Trick-or-Treating trip, a ghoulish get-up to wear to a spur of the moment post-work candy and cocktail party, or just want to get into the spirit for the kids who ring your doorbell, as always, we’ve got your butt covered!
(Note: to save time—and same-day shipping costs—all of these items are available locally at Dillard’s, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. We do, however, recommend calling ahead to be sure your size is waiting for you!)
The Kardashian Klan
This pop culture savvy look is great whether you’re keeping up with a group or flying solo. Pick your fave member of the famous fam and find your tightest black dress. (Bonus points if you’ve got a leopard look in your closet.) Worried about the lack of junk in your own proverbial trunk? A pair of Slimplicity Booty Booster shorts with built-in butt-lets should do the trick. Be sure to top it off with some signature long dark waves (of the natural or wig variety) and call everybody “doll,” and just like their reality show, you’ll be a hit!
Baby on Board
Bey-Bey On Board!
Some of our favorite celebs currently fall in the mom-to-be category: Beyonce and Jennifer Garner to name a couple. Dress up as one of these **** mamas and you’re sure to wow your friends—and freak your boyfriend or husband out juuuuuuuuust a little bit. Don’t have a baby on board? No problem! Pick up a pair of Mama Spanx and fill the expandable belly with batting. To get Jenn Garner’s chic look, pair the bump with a tailored shift dress and low heels. To match Bey’s flirty vacay before bebe style, bare your “belly” in a crop top or (if you live in a warmer climate) bikini top. And don’t forget the belly chain!
The Walking Dead
Walk Like an Egyptian!
Mummy’s the word! Looking for a simple costume that’s sure to impress your friends (and require very little conversation)? Throw on your favorite Spanx bodysuit like the Slim Cognito Shape-Suit or the Hide & Sleek Slip Suit (for modesty purposes), grab all of the SPANX pantyhose, sheers and tights you can find in your drawer and wrap your entire body. The result will be a sleek, stylish and oh-so-scary mummy!
Come On Ryan Light Our Fire, er, Lantern.
Don’t worry boys, we didn’t forget about you. Superheroes are a manly—and trendy—costume option for the fellas. But the pressure to look good in the Green Lantern’s snug lime onesie or Captain America’s bulging bicep-baring fatigues can haunt a happy Halloween. Enter SPANX for Men. The Zoned Performance shirts have their own body-flattering seams, but create an even more muscular look by going up a size or two in the shirt and wearing it over a plush body suit or plastic chest plate (both available at your neighbodhood drugstore or grocery…unless your neighbors read this before you did. And if you want to load those guns, steal a pair of your wife/girlfriend/female roommate’s SPANX pantyhose or In-Power Line Super Shaping Sheers and stuff them with batting. Encircle your arms with rubber bands every few inches to create a bulging bicep look. And remember to immediately replace the hose the next day. An unhappy lady left without her SPANX makes for a very unhappy November first.
