“Hi, I’m Tina. I like horses, music and boys”.
Of all the things I love about Halloween, dressing in costume ranks pretty high on my list. It doesn’t take much for me to dress in theme (off to the movies? You know I’ll be rocking a popcorn necklace. And my love for DisneyBounding knows no, um, bounds…) so, at this time of year, I can really throw myself into any idea that comes to me!
My inspiration tends to come from some of my favourite TV and film characters – I much prefer that over trying to frighten people (plus, let’s face it, I’m about as scary as a slice of pie!) and I can also show my appreciation for what I’ve been binge-watching lately.
Last year’s Halloween ensemble was put together very quickly – we had friends coming over and little time to spare. I still managed to pull it off with items I already had at home, making it a very easy costume idea!
It really didn’t take much convincing for me to dress as Tina Belcher, a character from one of my most-watched TV shows, Bob’s Burgers. Who DOESN’T want to be Tina for the day? Heck, with her confidence, sass and courage I kinda want to be Tina every day!
Want to put your own Tina Belcher outfit together? You will need:
- a blue tee
- a blue skirt
- white knee socks
- black sneakers
- a yellow hair clip
- a look of despair
- …and I added a burger-shaped handbag (which Tina doesn’t actually use, but I thought would be a fun touch!)
It helped that I also have a similar haircut to Tina, so if you don’t, a black bobbed wig might need to be added into the mix. Other than that, you’re good to go! As Tina would say, “Time for the charm bomb to explode”!
I’d love to know if you decide to dress like Tina Belcher for Halloween this year. As for me? I’m still deciding, but you can keep up to date with whatever I decide on over on Instagram…
