Channel Your Inner BA With This ‘Atomic Blonde’ Costume

Charlize Theron logged hours a day in the gym, bruised her ribs and cracked two teeth preparing for her role as secret agentĀ Lorraine Broughton in this summer’s spy thriller, Atomic Blonde. Thankfully, you don’t have to repeat her regimen in order to steal her look for Halloween (unless you plan on busting out some sick fight-scene choreography, in which case, uh…you do you).

Choosing just one costume out of Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” music video is like choosing just one Illuminati-esque hidden symbol in it to obsess over. You don’t want to stick to one thing, but somehow, you must.

The Most Comfortable, Last-Minute Halloween Costumes You’ve Ever Seen

Wearing skimpy, skintight costumes you have to constantly tug and readjust all Halloween night (while shivering, since it’s Oct. 31st and all) is just one school of thought.

You could be totally, ridiculously comfortable. These costumes are pretty much like wearing pajamas, and you only have to buy one thing to nail your entire look. Halloween has never been easier; it’s the perfect last-minute, lazy person’s costume.

Here are just a few ideas:

5 Halloween Snacks That Don’t Disappoint

Halloween is by FAR the biggest holiday of the year for Collegiate Cook, our sister site. We’ve been celebrating since the site launched in 2009, first with a single recipe post, then expanding into pop culture costumes and now, 15 days of costume and recipe posts.

Some recipes have stood out more than others, and some year-round favorites have become staples at our Halloween parties, even if they don’t have a Jack O’Lantern’s face carved into ’em. (Shocking, right?) read more
