Funny Halloween Costumes for Tall People

It’s time to start thinking about what you are going to wear for Halloween. Do you dress up? I do some years, but this year my four-year old daughter informed me rather forcefully that we are both going to be Princesses, so I am still working on that one.

I started thinking about how Halloween is the perfect time for us to have a little fun with our height. So today I present you some Funny Halloween Costumes for Tall People:

As you can see, it was easier to come up with costumes for the tall guys. However, over at  ‘Love my Long Legs Blog’, Sheri has listed more ideas for Tall Women’s Halloween Costumes.

Which idea is your favorite? Also share with us in a comment below any other ideas you have.

Skirt Extenders for Tall Women

Has this ever happened to you? You find the most beautiful skirt and when you try it on it’s a tad bit too short. Perhaps if you tugged on it a little more, it might work. But then you sit down and suddenly this skirt is 3″ too short. Oh no! Another wasted skirt. This is a common problem for tall women, but I’ve come across the perfect solution and they are called skirt extenders.

slip extender for tall women

Skirt extenders are a slip you wear under your skirt or dress and they have several inches of ruffle lace, or layers of ribbons. I’ve also seen them made from tulle. You put on the slip and it hangs down lower  than your skirt or dress. The above skirt extender has a 28″ length – which will hit many tall women just under the knee.

I found an Etsy store that will create a custom length skirt extender in whatever length you need.

If you sew, you can even make your own skirt extender. Details here or here.

I’m thinking as tall women, we all need a skirt extender to extend our wardrobe choices.

Pops of Pink

Today’s tall outfit starts out with a monochromatic look infused with gorgeous pops of pink.  This tall outfit is gorgeous by itself and don’t you just love the lace on the shoulder of the cardigan? It’s such a girly touch. But, when you add a pop of color such as the hot pink accessories, suddenly you’re transformed into a force to be reckoned with.

Camo Craze For Men

Have you seen all the camo lately?!  I’ve always loved the military trend and this direct interpretation of it is a clear winner.  Pair with neutrals (black, grey, beige), bright colors, or chambray.  The only rule? No camo on camo. (I’m sure you know better; it just makes me feel better to say it).  I’m always careful with trends like this to make sure I don’t look like I’m wearing a costume or dressing in theme.  But a small dose of the trend can be a fun way to change up your typical look and keep current. And actually a guy in camo isn’t even that much of a risk!  Even still I included accessories in the print if you want to try it in smaller doses.  Enjoy!

7′ 6″ Tall, Shawn Bradley in Studio C

My cousin is one of the producers of Studio C, a local comedy t.v. show – sort of like Saturday Night Live. She has done some amazing work!

While watching Studio C, I  found the following 5 minute spoof starring Shawn Bradley, hilarious! In case you need a refresher, Shawn Bradley stands at 7′ 6″ tall and was one of the tallest players ever in the NBA. He played for the Philadelphia 76ers, the New Jersey Nets and the Dallas Mavericks. Enjoy this segment:
