plus size halloween

This may come as a surprise to you, but as much as I love dressing up everyday, I hate dressing up for Halloween. I think the pressure for me comes from never knowing exactly what I want to be until the last minute and scrambling to make it happen. Over the years, I've been everything from Miss Piggy (duh), Snooki (also duh) and a contestant on Guts, but when you're plus size, Halloween brings the added stress of having to scramble to find things that are readily available in straight sizes. 

So this year, to avoid the stress of it all, I went with a cheeky plus size Halloween dress from Boohoo and the styling was inspired by a hybrid of Drusilla from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Big Ang. But basically, I went as myself in "Bite Me" dress. If you don't really feel like doing the costume thing, plus size Halloween dresses are an easy way to be festive for the holiday without putting too much effort in. And right now, everything is 50% off at Boohoo with the code "CELEBRATE50" so if you want the dress or any of the other plus size halloween garb, this is the time to grab it! 

I'm also wearing plus size fishnet thigh highs from Curvy Girl Lingerie. I am wearing the size C which fits up to a 30" thigh. The size D fits up to 35". They feature a silicone that helps them stay up but they are still delicate so I advise being careful when you put them on.
