Scare Up A Killer Costume With A Little Help From Rent The Runway, Etsy, & Sephora

Sure, an excuse to OD on sugar is great, but the best thing about Halloween, if you ask us, is the free pass to push sartorial limits. Now’s the time to dig out that crazy top, dye your hair a wild color (even if it's just temporary), and experiment with makeup looks you wouldn't dare wear to the office. Yes, it's a day to drop all style inhibitions, especially after a cup or two of witch's brew.
To help you truly stand out this Halloween, we partnered up with two of our all-time favorite e-commerce sites, Etsy and Rent the Runway, to give one lucky reader (along with three friends) everything needed to win best dressed. Rent the Runway has kicked in four $150 gift cards to put together next-level getups, Etsy's giving four $50 gift cards, and we threw in four $100 gift cards to Sephora for some costumey makeup.
Now, we know Etsy and Rent the Runway may not be first on your list of go-tos for costume-shopping, but they're fast becoming our favorites. With some of the most creative, unique finds from around the world, Etsy's sure to spark an original idea. (Sugar Candy Bra Top, anyone?) And, if you haven't checked out Rent the Runway’s extensive collection of haute couture before — like that time you snagged a last-minute invite to a black-tie benefit — you might not realize it’s an amazing resource for Halloween. Check out these five killer costume ideas that will make you see designer dresses in a whole new way.
And, don’t forget to enter here for your chance to win this killer giveaway — all in all, it's a $1,200 competitive edge. So, really, somebody ought to be scared.
