The Denim Behind Her Costume

Oct 24, 2016

Halloween is a great time for the ideas behind “freedom of expression.” Whether you’re going to spend the spooky holiday being your inner crazy cat lady, imitating the sensual elegance of Poison Ivy, or dressing as your favorite Disney Princess, Halloween allows you to really put your fandom on display. With girls, costumes can be as simple as a black dress and cat ears or as intricate as some of Heidi Klum’s most in-depth and legendary get ups. When it comes to incorporating the age-old material of denim, Royal Blue’s got your back on some costume ideas that are sure to garner some appraisals.

Oompa Loompa

Who said all of Willy Wonka’s Oompa Loompas were guys? Now of course, this costume would not be complete without making sure to get a bad orange tan, so make sure you find the time to get that together before the big night. The rest of the Oompa Loompa costume requires:

• A brown shirt
• A green wig
• Orange face paint (or the bad tan)
• And of course, the Fiona Denim Joggeralls in White

Rosie the Riveter

Rosie the Riveter is one of the biggest symbols of female empowerment and independence. The iconic 1940’s character represents a tough girl with an independent, DIY attitude, so putting the outfit together yourself seems only natural. Her outfit is:

• An all denim shirt
• A pair of denim pants
• A red bandana with hair pulled back
• Bright red lipstick

Don’t forget to hit the gym and get those biceps right so you can stay true to her world-famous pose!

Mario & Luigi

Mario and Luigi is great whether you’re doing a solo, couple, or best friends costume idea. This outfit is another one with a fairly easy set, the only thing that may have to be bought that isn’t a commonplace article of clothing is a big Mario-branded hat. For this one, you’d need:

• Red or green shirt
• White gloves
• Red or green high socks/leggings
• And the Girlfriend Fit Overalls, for an awesome final touch of realism.

 Minion from “Despicable Me”

One of the newest costume trends (at least in comparison to the decades old favorites) is certainly the hilarious little yellow goofballs, the Minions from the movie “Despicable Me.” If you want to go 100% with the outfit, you’ll have to get:

• Overalls
• Yellow leggings or an entire yellow morph suit
• Black gloves
• Big round glasses or goggles


This is a dynamic costume choice that can go with one of Royal Blue’s overall pieces or the Jessica Girlfriend Fit Ripped Jeans. For this effective look you’ll need:

• A plaid flannel shirt
• A straw hat
• Some black face paint to apply an imitation stitched moth.
• If you really want to take this outfit to the next level, place some straw into the neck and arm holes of your shirt to look more like a real scarecrow.

Hopefully these ideas will become your own or at least get the wheels turning on what you’ll want to do. Make sure to check out Royal Blue’s male choices here!
