We’ve Got Your Halloween Covered With This Awesome, Last Minute ‘The Shining’ Costume

There are plenty of last minute Halloween costumes out there if you don’t want to do the same thing you did last year (or if throwing on a bedsheet and going as a ghost doesn’t exactly showcase your best physical features). The right reference can make the simplest costume something to show off to your friends. If you’re a horror fan, try this dress with the carpet pattern from the film adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel The Shining. Trust us, it’s a million times better and spookier than a self-deprecating comment slapped onto a name tag.

Director Stanley Kubrick’s pick, designed by David Hicks (1929-1998) is one of the most recognizable carpets in movie history, the bold and iconic pattern leaping out at viewers from the screen. The eerie yet vibrant design adds to the unnerving tone of the film, and its on screen during many of the film’s most significant moments!
