Oh dang! Halloween is only about a week away?! Have you thought of a costume yet? It’s not quite enough time to whip something complicated together and you know that all the good stuff in thrift stores have been scooped up already. So what to do? Well, at the start of the month I mentioned some socks that make a costume, but now it’s time to bring in socks that are a costume (or most of one).
No, don’t worry, we’re not suggesting you wear just socks. It’s cold this time of year. But to be a ninja, all you need is to wear all black and the Ninja Knee Highs from Gumball Poodle.
And to be a bee takes just the Fuzzy Stripe Leg Warmers in Black & Yellow and, if you’re feeling adventurous, the Striped Over the Knees in Black & Yellow turned into arm warmers with the know-how from the Arm Warmer Basics DIY.
Still stumped? We’ve got a couple more ideas after the jump! Read more »
Just like the pair of knee highs that pull an entire outfit together, there are key socks for certain costumes that make people go “perfect!” instead of “who?” We’ve gathered some of our favourites for you to start out this month of costumes and disguises.
Now, when you see someone in a sharp suit—maybe with leather jacket—a fedora and patent black dress shoes, you might be thinking that’s one well-dressed fellow but how’s that a costume? But add a pair of white socks like the EG Smith Socklings in White (and make sure the hem of those pants is just short enough to show them off!) and you know it’s the King of Pop, Michael Jackson!
(If you’re going for Billie Jean video accuracy, you’ll want a pink sock to match your shirt, like the Bastia Comfort Top Crew)
A dark red pleated skirt, orange sweater and thick framed glasses is just nerdy-cute, but add cuffed orange knee socks like the O Rayon Flax Blend in Carrot or the O Basics in Sherbet (whichever matches the sweater best) and you’re Velma Dinkley of Scooby-Doo!

Halloween is so close I can almost taste the candy! If you’re still searching for the last key elements of your costume we’ve got a list to help you out.
If you love face paint, you may want to try rocking the La Calavera Catrina look, a classic Dia de los Muertos costume and image. Some face paint, any sort of outfit, and a pair of the Harajuku Long Bones Arm Warmers and the Kawaii Skeleton Over The Knee.
More costume fun after the jump!
