I am a sucker for Lularoe Halloween leggings, I used to have a friend who sold them & I would clear her out when she received her seasonal stock. Now, I know that we have all heard the horror stories of how Lularoe treats their employees & issues with MLMs all around – I tend to only purchase used pieces from Ebay or Mercari if I am in the market for some new (to me) leggings. I honestly prefer to purchase used clothing at this point & these leggings are generally still in really good condition even if they were pre-loved. I think that the fabric of these leggings has changed over time because some pairs are definitely thicker than others but they are all ultra soft & stretchy. Don’t be shocked if in a few weeks I am posting a leggings haul because I’m hunting at the moment 😛 I don’t necessarily wear any of these out of the house, I usually only wear black leggings if I am wearing them to work or out running errands. It brightens my day to throw on a pair of printed leggings even if I am just wearing them around the house. Also, I only wear black (sometimes with white) out of the house so my fashion options have become a bit limited. I’m not complaining since this was a conscious decision that nobody is forcing me to adhere to aside from myself.
I call these my Monster Mash leggings, they were part of a classic monsters collection. Victor Frankenstein’s monster is probably my favorite Halloween monster, I don’t think that he gets nearly enough recognition. I love the crazy neon colors against the dark sketch of the monster, unexpected but the chaos makes perfect sense.
These black & white ghosties are very well loved – I have been looking for another pair because these are starting to get pretty worn. The colors haven’t faded at all but they are starting to pill in places, they are showing their age. Just a classic, fun print that I actually have worn out of the house dressed up with a black sweater & boots.
Feed my Frankenstein…yet another pair featuring my favorite monster. I believe that these came in a few color ways & there was a point in my life that I desperately needed them but that has passed, I am plenty content with these beauties.
This next pair I purchased with the black & white ghosts, they are definitely the old fabric & these are getting a little worn as well. I think these came in purple too & I would still snag a pair if I was lucky enough to find them in the wild. The disjointed, dancing skeletons remind me of the old Mickey Mouse Halloween special for some reason. Like, they make me think of the macabre organ music they play – does anyone know what I’m talking about 😀
They’re freaking bats! Not much to say here, another classic Halloween pattern that gets lots of love.
Ugh – two of my absolute favorite pairs that I spent weeks trying to find, there is a black pair as well that I’m still on the hunt for. I’ve worn these to work many a time, they are just so stinking cute. There is something about the fake plastic Dracula teeth that transcends generations, it’s hard to explain but it’s like when you see them you just know what they are.
Sticking with the Dracula theme, we have these fun ones that are also very old. Dracula is my second favorite ghoul. Outside of the association with Halloween, the history of who he could have been is fascinating. I’m also a huge fan of bats, throw some bats on it & I’m sold.
These look terrible on me, for some reason the sizing is way off which is not something I have experienced with any of the other pairs. They are baggy & just hang weird, it’s too bad because this is one of my favorite patterns.
This is an interesting pair, I think that the seller just wanted to unload them & they came with my wolf boy leggings as a 2 for 1 deal. They’re fine, I think that if the headless horseman character was sketched out similarly to the classic monster collection that I would like them a lot more. The pattern just has so much detail that it’s overly busy. I’ve only worn them 1-2 times but I really like the color scheme so I keep hanging onto them.
Another favorite from the classic monsters collection, my wolf boy leggings.
I am unsure if these can be called Halloween leggings but they have spaceships & I only wear them during spooky season so I am counting them. I purchased these brand new, they are the newer fabric & I ended up poking a hole in them with my acrylic nails. I was not pleased, I was able to repair the hole with a tiny stitch but I know that overtime the fabric will start pulling away. In my opinion, this really speaks to the older pairs being more durable. I have not experienced any other issues like color fade or pilling but still disappointed.
These are my witch leggings, any time I want to feel subtly Halloween-y, these do the trick. They are not Lularoe, I picked these up from Old Navy & they are much thicker & supportive than Lularoe. Another super simple pattern that I tend to associate with Halloween.
Another Old Navy pair, they don’t scream Halloween but the purple does it for me 😛
Do you have any holiday specific clothing? I think it started when I was teaching, I fell into the habit of having at least 1-2 holiday themed clothing pieces. Now, I just blame it on my Halloween obsession. Let me know what you’ve been up to and as always – I hope that you are happy, healthy & just doing the best you can 🧡
Totally off topic yet completely on topic – Buffalo Bill’s house is for sale yet nobody that I discussed this with had any idea why I thought this was so exciting. Could you imagine living in a house made famous by one of the most heart stopping horror scenes in movie history? I think the moth thing would gross me out too much even though they probably weren’t infesting the home as depicted. Anyway…Tonight’s film is The Silence of the Lambs (1991) a thriller that chronicles an FBI manhunt for a disturbed serial killer with the help of a cannibalistic genius.
