- Mime–Was a Mime the first thought you had when thinking of a black and white striped shirt costume? It’s one of the most easiest, and you probably have all the accessories. All you need is a black beret hat, suspenders, white glove and a scarf. You can get creative with the makeup with a tear-shaped eyes, white face and heart-shaped lips. Then you can also bring silly props like fake flowers.

3. Pirate–A little scary and a little cute, you instantly become a pirate with an eye patch! Add a skull bandana and gold hoop earrings to play up the part.
4. Retro 50’s Lady–Grab your black leather jacket and add a pink scarf around your neck to get the retro 50’s lady look. Such a cool look! Some other accessories you can add are pearl earrings. If you have a pink jacket, you’ll instantly look like a pink lady. Or wear your chuck Taylor all-star shoes.
