Legally Blonde is a comedy movie starring Reese Witherspoon, who plays a girl that follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard for revenge. A Legally Blonde costume is one of the easiest and most fun Halloween movie costumes to make. You can become Reese Witherspoon within minutes using the tips outlined below.
Pink Dog Collar
To start creating a Legally Blonde costume, you must wear a pink 3-piece suit. It should be a professional outfit. Pink business suits can be found in department stores. I recommend selecting one with a skirt instead of pants. Doing so will help you to pull off this Halloween movie costume idea more efficiently. To save even more money, substitute the pink suit for a business casual outfit. This can be done by wearing a long or three quarter sleeve length top with matching pants.
Of course, the alternative outfit should be entirely pink. If a belt is needed for your Legally Blonde costume, choose one that is the same color. One great thing about the casual attire is that each item can be worn again. Unless you have a corporate job, the pink business suit may not be worn again. A pink scarf can also added to this Halloween movie costume idea. Tie it around your neck or on the side belt loop of those pink pants for extra pizzazz.
To complete the outfit for a Legally Blonde costume, wear pink high heels. If you do not own a pair or have difficulty locating them in stores, all is not lost. Wear a pair of open toe heels that have rhinestones or other sparkly material on them.
Blonde is the color of Reese Witherspoon’s character in Legally Blonde. If your hair is naturally or colored blonde, skip this step. Curls are the only thing that you need. However, women with other hair colors should purchase a blonde wig. It should not be any simple product. You will want to make sure that it has medium length hair, volume and curls. I found a Discorama Mama Blonde Wig on Amazon for $12. This wig has a great color and would be a great addition to your Halloween movie costume.
Reese Witherspoon wore pink hats in the movie. However, she also dressed without the hat and had trendy pink sunglasses. This is an accessory that will look great with your Legally Blonde costume. Get a pair is sunglasses that have pink lenses. Do not wear them on your face. Instead, place these sunglasses on your head as you would on any normal day.
A plush dog will be needed to pull of this Halloween movie costume idea. You can get a stuffed animal from Toys R US, Amazon, Kaybee Toys or other retailers. Mothers may be able to find a plush dog among their children’s toys. If that is possible, go for the free Halloween costume accessory. The plush dog does not have to be large, just make sure that it is attractive.
Step 6: Get a pink tote to match your outfit for the Legally Blonde costume. While I recommend a large purse, you could use one of your favorite shoulder bags as well. No matter what you choose, make sure that the bag is large enough to fit most of the dog inside. The animal’s head should stick out one end of your bag for this Halloween movie costume idea.
Now that you are all set with the right apparel for a Legally Blonde costume, it is time to fix up the dog. Get a pink dog collar and attach it to the animal. This will create a unified Legally Blonde costume. While Reese Witherspoon dressed her dog up in cute fashions, a simple pink collar will do the trick for this Halloween movie costume idea.
Nothing says lawyer more than a brief case. It does not have to be pink, but a brief case would be a great addition to your Halloween costume. That is one option that can be used to create the character’s look. However, you could also use law books to complete this Legally Blonde costume. Although Reese Witherspoon had three law books on the poster for Legally Blonde, you do not need that many.
Carrying one law book instead of three will make it easier to move around. Go to the local library and see if you can borrow a law book. Library books can usually be taken out for a few days. This will be perfect since you will only need it for one occasion. A law book helps to finish off the Legally Blonde costume.

You will be able to pick up some tips on the character’s personality and other traits. Jewelry is a flexible accessory that can be added to this Halloween movie costume idea. Diamonds, costume jewelry or pearls can work for your Legally Blonde costume.
