Over the course of the show’s six-season run, the characters of Schitt’s Creek have crept into our hearts – and perhaps none more than the hysterically quirky Moira Rose. With her…interesting…dress sense and her exquisite vocabulary, she’s become one of the most memorable characters to come out of television in the last decade. If you, like many others, have chosen to use this halloween to pay tribute to this charming wayfaring thespian, we’ve compiled our favourite tips for the perfect Moira Rose halloween costume for you to peruse.
Get the look:
Moira’s look is complex, but easy to achieve. Her wardrobe is predominantly black and white, and clashing patterns are welcome. The more the merrier, really. Got some feathers? glitter? sequins? add those in for some more pizzazz. Also, don’t be afraid of the humble black garbage bag. It can be chic if done right…apparently.
Bedevil yourself with accessories. They’re a must. wear so many you can barely hold your glass of wine (also a must). If you’re not making jingling noises as you walk, you probably haven’t got enough. Go back and find some more.Props are good too. A giant wine bottle, a Cafe Tropicale menu, a binder. Pick your favourite and carry it along with you.
Finally, remember that wigs are essential for your Moira Rose halloween costume. The more out there your wig is, the better. For some inspiration to get into character, check out this list of Moira’s best wig moments.
