Female Film/TV Character Costumes for Halloween

We are SOOO beyond excited to do our very first Halloween Costume Round-Up!! This is one of our favorite holidays, and it is the absolute most fun to actually get in the spirit and dress up. Each year, we are drawn to costumes that take queues from film and television, so we’ve made a vow to have each idea come from one of the two for EACH of our round-ups. Honestly, this is more fun than hard work, and we truly hope you guys find some inspiration from one of our posts for your costume this year. This is the first of many categories, so you’ll wanna stay tuned. Trust us…and go ahead and subscribe to our emails below if you haven’t already. 🙂
