Halloween Costumes: Wharton Inspired

By Emily Seigneurie

Let’s get real. Everyone waits until the last minute to buy a Halloween Costume, to go to Party City and realize that everything is sold out… but don’t worry! Wharton Center has you covered. Slay your way into Halloween by creating these fun DIY costumes inspired by the shows of this season including Cabaret, Wicked, Moscow Festival Ballet: Swan Lake, and Jarrod Spector and Kelli Barrett.


Option 1: Sally Bowles from Cabaret


If you are going for a more risqué outfit this Halloween, Sally Bowles from the Broadway show, Cabaret is perfect for you. Wear any vintage-styled dress you can find and dress it up with a black choker, any color boa, bold red lips, and character shoes.


Option 2: Elphaba from Wicked


Witches are one of the most “Popular” Halloween costume on the market. But Elphaba is one of a kind! The smarty, fiery witch with emerald-green skin is the perfect costume for anyone!


Option 3: Ballerina from Moscow Festival Ballet: Swan Lake


Whether you choose to be the white swan or the black swan, this is a fierce and beautiful Halloween costume!


Option 4: Couple Costume: Jarrod Spector and Kelli Barrett This is Dedicated: Music’s Greatest Marriages



Broadway singers Jarrod Spector and Kelli Barrett  (pictured at bottom) will continuously switch roles while telling love stories through music in their performance on February 14. Take your “boo” out for Halloween dressed as some of their muses like Beyoncé & Jay Z or Sonny & Cher!



Tickets are available for all Wharton Center shows at whartoncenter.com or 1-800-WHARTON. Specially-priced student tickets are available depending on the show.
