I can’t believe its that time of year again..already! I’ve always loved Halloween,
not because of the spooky decorations or horror movies, but because I LOVE
to dress up! If you know me personally you know how much I adore a good
costume party and pride myself on throwing together a one-of-a-kind look
from some items I already have lying around and maybe a few accessories
or pieces that I might need to purchase to complete the look. I figured
We RollerSkate would be the perfect place to post some great roller
skater costume ideas. I have a few up my sleeve and this is just one of the
roller looks you could rock this year…
There’s something so nostalgic and fun about a roller skating car hop, its cute and girly,
and can go from G-rated to NC-17 with a few little tweaks, depending on what you’re
These Ruby’s Car Hops look adorable and this look is easy to
achieve with a great vintage style dress (goodwill or thrift
store), paired with a cardigan (you probably already have this),
and a little apron. Top it off with a car hop hat (costume
websites sell them as accessories for around $6 or you can
always ask In-N-Out for a paper one) and the most important
accessory, your skates, now you’re ready to roll..pun intended.
If you’re not comfortable skating in a dress or you’re
anticipating a cold Halloween Party, here’s another option,
that I LOVE, and looks super simple to re-create. Grab your
favorite skinny jeans or leggings, and a tucked, tight button-
up shirt (vintage style is best), belt, and apron and you’ve
got this look down!
For those who are not into building a costume from scratch, I’ve found these
options too, however don’t forget to pair them with your skates and be the hit
of the party!
This ensemble is available for $30 at
halloweencostumes.net in both adult and children’s sizes, search 50′s Car Hop Cutie.
The great thing about this Roller Skating Car Hop look is you can use just about any 50′s costume pieces or attire that you already have, add your skates and a cute apron and voila!
I’d love to see your roller skater costume photos, maybe we have a lil prize in store for the best skater Halloween costume this month! Please check back next week for another “Roller Skater Halloween Costume Look”, the Roller Skating Car Hop is just Look 1 in a four-part series, other Looks include: 70′s & 80′s Roller Girl costumes, Men’s Roller Skater costume, Roller Derby Girl costume.
