Easy Halloween Costume: Moira from Schitt’s Creek (2 Options!)

One of the shows that has given me the greatest joy this past year is “Schitt’s Creek.” Have you watched it? OMG, Catherine O’Hara as Moira is basically my dream character – I want her wardrobe, her attitude, and that accent that’s part 30’s screwball comedy and part Madonna lives in London now.

So, of course, I had to dress up as her for Halloween – when else do I get to channel my inner thespian and treat the world as a stage and my children as merely players? Okay, that’s pretty much every day, but STILL.

One of the best parts of this costume is you can just use whatever you have in your closet. Yes, I know it’s a bit easier for those of us who trade in feathers and everyday, leather gloves, but, dammit, John, it can be done!

Seriously, all you need is a white button down paired with black accessories. Now, this is very important, but you must stay monochromatic. Moira doesn’t do color, unless it’s on her head.

The more over-the-top you can go, the better. I mean, this is a woman who once cooked dinner in a feather collar and silver cuffs and HOW IS SHE NOT THE PRESIDENT?

Lastly, you’ve got to do a wig. (Do I even need to say it?)

I think you’re pretty safe to go in whatever direction is easiest (I had this one from another shoot so figured I’d wear it), but make it DRAMATIC. This is a woman who campaigned for City Council while wearing a mass of red ringlets so, believe me when I say, you can’t go too over-the-top when it comes to the hair.

And, I wanted to give you a second option just so you can see how easy this can be (and I really wanted to buy a pair of biker gloves, truth be told πŸ˜‚).

See, how easy it is?? I didn’t have another wig so I went for signature Moira and colored my hair underneath. (She has a wig named “Maureen” that is black underneath with gray-blond on top. THE WOMAN IS A NATIONAL TREASURE.)

Another bonus? I can wear this outfit if I ever leave the house and go to a meeting. Tell me, this costume isn’t the gift that just keeps giving?!?!?

Okay, are you sick of me talking about this costume yet? I LOVE IT SO MUCH I CAN’T STOP!!

Moira, you are my spirit animal. Never let the bastards get you down!

What do you think? Have you watched it? I feel like if you haven’t seen it, you’re rolling your eyes, but if you have, who is your fave? And should I try and get Chris to dress up as Johnny? That’s an obvious yes, right? πŸ˜‚
