Do It Yourself: Make Your Own Costume

Do It Yourself: Make Your Own Costume
POSTED ON October 11, 2017

Sick of all the same old costumes, year in and year out? Set yourself apart from the crowd when you combine sexy accessories and lingerie from Lover’s Lane to make your own entirely unique costume! Keep reading if you need a little convincing – it might take a tad bit more work, but it’ll be worth it when all eyes are on you at the Halloween party!


1. Making your own costume is a creative exercise.

Show off your creative side by letting your imagination craft the perfect Halloween costume. Start by picturing what you envision for your costume and pick the pieces accordingly. From wigs and masks to fishnets and thigh-highs, your options are practically endless. Check out the Kits and Accessories section for more inspiration!

Witches are a classic in the Halloween costume realm, so create a wicked look with the Ruffled Train Skirt, the Wet Look Fishnet Underwire Top paired with a set of Premium Latex Thigh Highs & Pasties*, and then top it all off with the Mini-Witch Hat!  This outfit will be enchantingly sexy.

*If you’re not a fan of pasties, throw on a cute bralette or cami underneath the top.

2. There may be others with the same idea, but no one else will be wearing your exact costume.

Worry not my unique costume seekers! Since you’ll be creating your own costume you’ll have none of those “OMG they’re wearing the same costume” moments. The trick to this is to find a piece that can not only be worn in the bedroom but actually transforms into a wardrobe piece.  Browsing our Corset & Bustier collection is a great way to start.  While others are blending in with the crowd, you’ll stand out – and surely be the center of attention – in your one-of-a-kind design.

Be a raven of the night with our Black Raven Mask, Faux Leather & Brocade Corset, Black or Red Tutu, and Fence Net Pantyhose, then tie it all together with a pair of our Thigh High Boots!  You’ll be the leader of the flock.

3. You can incorporate the pieces into your everyday outfits post-Halloween.

Unlike other ready-to-go out of the package costumes, making your own costume allows you to choose accessories that can work into your everyday wardrobe. So using pieces from our teddy & romper, hosiery, fetish, or gown collections are a great way to invest in versatile pieces that last well past the October holiday!

This year, make yourself stand out with a costume of your own design! Lover’s Lane has everything you need to put together the perfect look with just the right mix of sexy and spooky. Shop all our Halloween costumes and accessories online or stop by a Lover’s Lane near you!
