Since getting over my concern of Pennywise and Chucky (the Horseman nonetheless haunts me), I’ve come to understand Chucky because the ironic character that he’s: a menacing psychotic pressure trapped in an harmless kids’s toy.
Chucky’s look is, for an absence of a greater phrase, infantile. Since he’s possessing a toy, he is among the horror villains with the brightest colour scheme and essentially the most relatable look.
For my Chucky outfit, I wore a pink and white striped t-shirt and a pair of medium-wash overalls.

Chucky rocks a pair of lovely pink sneakers. For my sneakers, I placed on my high-top pink Converse. For a bonus Chucky vibe, I didn’t do my hair in any respect and simply let it get messy.
This was a enjoyable one. I favored the nippiness vibe of the look and I felt actually comfy with it. I do assume a sweater might’ve appeared higher, however the t-shirt was excellent for the most popular a part of the day. I threw on a pink denim jacket later within the day, as a result of I used to be a bit chilly.

Recreating Casey Becker’s outfit was each straightforward and difficult. The straightforward half was the bottom of the look. I put collectively a cropped sweater in a creamy colour with a pair of off-white denims.
The difficult half got here with the sneakers. Casey is barefoot via the entire scene, so I didn’t know if I ought to go for a pair of nude mules or white sneakers. I ended up selecting the white high-top Converse, since I believed they’d be extra ’90s. Lastly, I placed on pink lipstick to match hers.
I adored this look! It was so cute and ideal for fall. Personally, I actually favored utilizing lighter colours at a time when each merchandise of clothes appears to be actually darkish or jewel-toned. It was comfy, however the sweater was a bit thick for the precise climate we’re having.
If I ever put on this one once more, will probably be through the winter, when it’s so much colder exterior.

It’s a distinct lower, however I believe that it’s a good combine between Carrie’s extra conservative outfits and her satin promenade costume.

I beloved this look! I felt tremendous fairly all day. However, I used to be additionally chilly all day lengthy. I had a date that evening, so I needed to change the search for one thing higher suited to the climate and plan. I might’ve worn a coat, modified the heels, and worn tights; however I actually needed to be comfy and have the ability to stroll and sit freely. I repeated Casey’s look as a substitute.
One in every of my favourite issues to do is to learn horror novels, and watch horror movies and TV sneakers. Naturally, I at all times love doing my yearly Halloween put up. This time, it was a bit simpler to decide on the characters I needed to cowl, since I spent a number of time this 12 months watching horror movies.
