While a Personal Shopper can give you what you need for real life, I'd Rather Be sets you up for fantasy lives you didn't even know you had. Because sometimes a new shampoo isn't enough for a whole new you. (Want us to outfit your alter ego or your alternate reality? Just say the word!)
The sexy Halloween costume is played out, yes. But we love playing the sexy thing in a way that comes off as mostly creepy, much like Greta the Gremlin did in Gremlins 2. The best thing about this costume? Depending on your everyday level of garishness, you might already have a lot of it covered in your existing wardrobe.
Obviously, we love Greta's leopard print get up the best, but unless you're totally committed to covering yourself in body paint, we'd recommend switching out her teeny bikini for a longer sleeved leopard print dress ($28) instead.
But how will you get that green gremlin sheen on the rest of your body? A pair of kelly green tights ($13) and gloves ($18) will be a lot warmer (and less messy) than painting yourself green for the evening.
But what about your face and scaly cleavage? We recommend going a semi-subtler route by dusting on some loose eyeshadow ($3).
Greta appears to wear some basic black pumps ($75), which you probably already have anyway.
Without those ears, it wouldn't be much of a gremlin costume. An easy fix would be to make the ears out of felt and stick 'em on a headband, but if you weren't born with the Martha Stewart gene, these ($25) will do.
If your wardrobe doesn't already include a vast supply of leopard print and technicolor makeup, this ensemble will cost you $254.
