The Leopard

Are you the girl that’s always trying to get new words to become the newest catch phrase? That’s SO fetch, and you definitely want to take Gretchen’s leopard look on the town this Halloween. This look requires only a few essentials: leopard ears and tail and a skin-tight black body suit, like this one and some tall, black stiletto boots. Want to add some additional flair to Gretchen’s look? You can always spice up your Gretchen costume up by adding leopard eye makeup.

The Bunny

The Queen Bee…. Or, bunny, is the costume of choice for the leader of the group. A Regina costume takes the traditional Playboy Bunny look and brings both natural elements and the color pink into her attire. To pull off this outfit for a big bash, you should use white and pink bunny ears, a white leotard, knee-high white boots, and fishnet tights. And, don’t leave the confidence at home; you’ll need that to be Regina George and rule not only the school, but the party, too.

The Mouse... duh!

“What are you? I’m a mouse, duh!” Rounding out the trio with Karen’s sexy mouse is a MUST have costume. Any short black dress, tall silver boots, and a mouse accessories kit will do for this simple costume. What’s harder will be perfecting Karen’s ditzy personality in a way that only Amanda Seyfried can do! Even if no one "gets" your Karen Mean Girls costume, that's kind of the point!

If you follow all the group rules: pink on Mondays, ignoring your friends’ ex boyfriends and ditching the sweatpants, you’ll definitely make the group. And, you’ll likely even get asked to participate in the talent show. So, find a Santa hat and get practicing your Jingle Bell Rock!
