Halloween Inspiration Board: Your Worst Coachella Nightmare

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / October 31, 2013

It’s maybe kind of sad that it’s possible for a random summer concertgoer to be a Halloween costume. Whatever. Dry your tears on your crochet tank, pull on your absurdly frayed and sun-bleached denim shorts, spend 30 minutes buckling your complicated and uncomfortable gladiator sandals, and prepare your best “I’ve got sunstroke but I don’t care because I’m high on Molly” impression, we’re going to Coachella for Halloween! Oh, and you know Coco Chanel’s rule about removing one item before you leave the house? DO THE OPPOSITE. Always add more. Preferably of the fringed, beaded and tasseled variety. When in doubt, ask yourself, “What would Vanessa Hudgens do?” and you’ll be set. Click on for the details on the costume above!
