Getting Glammed Up for Themed Night: How To

It seems like you are in a dilemma as to what to do. It is Halloween, you have to attend a rather important party, but you are required to dress up as well. If you consider yourself an elegant person, you are most probably hoping to channel your inner Gatsby Era lady and attend said party as a pretty damsel. Or, if you are someone who identifies as the Great Gatsby himself, you may be looking to adorn yourself with what Gatsby would wear and enter the party in grand style. You may also be at a loss for options – you may be wondering how to get this all going. Luckily for you, we have it all mapped out.


Decisions, Decisions

First, you have to make a decision. What character are you dressing up as? Is it an easy costume that can be made from things we find at home or is it something that requires a lot of planning and searching? Depending on your choice, make a list of things that you need to obtain to make this costume come to life. You can go on YouTube and watch tutorials on costume making etc. but chances are there are real costume stores out there with what you want readymade.

Go Shopping

You will have to grab a friend or colleague, tell them what you are looking for and proceed to a shopping district like Orchard street or Bugis, split up and look for what you want and convene. This is a useful technique because it covers a lot of ground in a short time and you do not have to stress too much.


Get Accessorized

A word of advice – if your jewellery is the type that you would not wear if not for the outfit, go for the cheap ones always – this is simply the best thing to do, given your reluctance to wear these out again. You can always loan them out to a friend when they need to dress up. This would reduce the expense of getting a costume ready altogether.

Get Dressed

Chances are, you need makeup and hairstyling to go with your outfit i.e. to really make it authentic. Luckily for you, and probably unbeknownst to you, there are plenty of salons that do haircuts and hairstyles like pompadour Singapore – you just have to know where to find them. These outlets will help you complete your look and send you off to your party in style.


You may think dressing up is silly, but you’ll feel like the silly one when everyone is dressed up except for you. So put in the effort, and have a ball!
