Stranger Things

If you’re like any of us here at Sassy and couldn’t get enough of sci-fi Netflix hit series Stranger Things, consider jumping into character yourself! Explore your own parallel universe in search of the other side, as Eleven – the girl with telekinetic powers and her partner in crime, Mike. These youngsters have given us serious costume inspo for 2016! Pull off this look with a quick trick to the thrift shop for a few simple pieces (check out some vintage stores in Hong Kong here).

Whether you’re an early riser or a creature of the night, this costume appeals to both parties! As they say, opposites attract – and it appears obvious with this super cute metallic ensemble of gold and silver attire resembling the shimmer of sunlight and the glimmer of a night sky. Pull off this look and you’ll be sure to illuminate the evening’s festivities with your best lady into the wee hours of the morning.

Shining Twins

An oldie but a goodie, the eerie twins from my personal favourite classic spooky flick, The Shining. The mildly unsettling scene with spooky sisters inviting Jack to play with them for life still sends shivers down my spine – sometimes creepy cute just works!

Get the Look: Any blue tea dress will do – don’t spend much as it will be smothered in fake blood! Add knee high white socks like these and a blue hair clip to the side too.

If sweet isn’t the look you’re going for this year, tell the ladies to dig out their leather, fishnets and lather on the dark makeup for the classic KISS collaborative. This one never gets old and can be done up in so many ways. Besides, we all love a good excuse to get back in black!

Zenon Girl of the 21st century

Okay, can we go back to 1999 and talk about Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century for a second? You remember, that super 90s TV movie about a teenage girl living her best life, growing up in a space station while crushing hard on a rockstar from earth and trying to manage growing up in a space station with bestie Nebula by her side – epic, right? Let’s bring them back with this stylish space-age look, consisting of (but not limited to) neon colours and metallic shades. People don’t forget!
