A very steam punk Halloween seems to be all the rage this season as the past and the future unite!  Think a savvy Sherlock Holmes and combine Victorian fashion with some charming gadgets and dash of attitude.

Get ready to feel like royalty! What better way to play pretend than as a prince and princess? The top couples costume of 2011 is by no surprise, William and Kate! Recreate the wedding of the century and celebrate yourself first hand.

Wild Things
Go wild and DIY by creating an animalistic inspired costume! Take your everyday dog and cat and transform into a fierce tiger or ferocious wolf! Or, go a bit lighthearted and dress up as a plush kangaroo, wobbly penguin, or foxy fox!

  1. Loved the costumes. Naturally, I chose Lady GaGa...though I
    would slice the neckline more in the direction of the navel. Navels
    have always been unrespected considering the life and death role they
    played for lots of months. Before they were sort of left just being
    a dumb dimple-hole, that is. Poor navels
