Trendy Costume Idea: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Posted on 19 October 2018 in Costumes for Women

Amazon's hot new tv show is the fun inspiration behind this costume idea. Mrs. Maisel is a late 1950's housewife turned stand-up comic. She dresses in the fabulous fashions you'd expect to find among the upper class in New York in 1958, when the show takes place. Here are some costume piece ideas for a DIY Mrs. Maisel look for Halloween this year.

1A Retro Dress With Full Skirt

This is a 1950s style dress with longer short sleeves and a full swing skirt. Mrs. Maisel is frequently seen wearing stylish solid colored cocktail-style dresses like this one.

2A Retro Fashion Hat To Match

This red felt cap is a retro style right out of Mrs. Maisel's time. The imitation wool bucket hat has a matching felt flower embellishment. It's best to pick a hat to match the color of your dress for this costume.

31950s Style Contrasting Chiffon Scarf

An extra retro fashion accessory like this totally 50s style chiffon scarf will add to the look. You could also add a strand of pearls, Ray-Ban style sunglasses, or a fashion brooch.

4Mrs. Maisel's Hair: Brunette Flip Wig

Found in Accessories > Wigs
If you can't style your own hair the way Mrs. Maisel wears hers, a simple 1950s flip-style wig in black, like this one, or dark brown, will do the trick.

5Retro Comedic Performer's Microphone

Complete your Mrs. Maisel look with an old-school microphone like the one she uses while performing stand-up at the club. Have a few coarse jokes ready and you'll be unmistakable as the popular character.
