Most beloved sci-fi films of all time is the 1986 classic Little Shop of Horrors. What better way to commemorate this musical than to put your best foot forward in a Halloween costume inspired by characters of the film?
Seymour is the oddball florist played by Rick Moranis. This costume is generally easy to make by yourself, as you really only need some clothes that you may already have in your closet.
To start, you'll need a pair of large glasses to recreate that classic "nerdy" look of Moranis. You'll also need a button-down shirt, tucked into beige khaki pants with a brown belt. The color of the button down should mainly be white/grey, although he is seen wearing a number of shirts throughout the film (such as red).
Finally, you'll need a pair of brown or black shoes to complete the business casual look embodied by Seymour. Of course, no Seymour costume is complete without the iconic Audrey 2 prop.
For this one, you'll need a medium sized flowerpot with some soil (don't be afraid to use black construction paper to mimic soil for the sake of not making a mess.)
Next include some green leaves (again, you can either use real stems and leaves, or construction paper cut into leaf shapes). For the large "head" of the plant, people have gotten creative in a number of ways, including using the top half of a hollowed-out watermelon and chiclet gum for the terrifying teeth.
Up next is Seymour's eclectic coworker, Audrey. For this costume, you'll need her trademark blonde, shoulder length wig. To recreate her makeup, utilize some light blue or turquoise eyeshadow, black mascara, and red lipstick.
You'll need a lowcut black dress with heels or sneakers. She is also seen wearing a white coat over the black dress when outside. If you can pull this costume off, you'll be sure to impress the partygoers at your next Halloween costume.
