Easy DIY Halloween Costume: Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time"

    The last time (and I think only time?) that I did a whole blog post dedicated to a DIY Halloween costume was three years ago! Crazy how the time flies. Anyways, the blog post featuring my Bachelorette costume has gotten a lot of traffic this past month! That inspired me to share one of my costume's for this year in today's post. This is another really easy DIY costume! I spent a total of $10 on this- all I had to purchase were the socks and the hair accessories (and you might already own those things!)

{I'm not even going to bother to link anything specific that I'm wearing because it's all older pieces from my closet! 😉 That's how easy this costume is.} 

     If you've been reading here for awhile, you probably know that I am a huge fan of Britney Spears, specifically of her early music! Late 90s/early 2000s pop culture is my JAM. One of my biggest highlights of the past few years was seeing Britney's Piece of Me residency in Las Vegas for my 22nd birthday! My very first CD was Britney's sophomore release, Oops!...I Did It Again. I distinctly remember going with my mom to the CD section of Sam's Club and picking it out, and then listening to it on repeat for years on my portable CD player and boom box. ...Baby One More Time (the album with the look my costume is inspired by) is actually Britney's first album, I purchased her second and first out of order when I was growing up! But I loved them both (and still do!). I'm currently trying to figure out a way to get back out to Vegas for Britney's new show, which opens in the winter!

     Given my adoration for Ms. Spears, I'm kind of surprised that I've never tried to do this costume, or a different Britney look, for Halloween in the past! I guess I wanted to save this idea for a Halloween in the future, and now is the time! It worked out to do it in 2018, since this year is the 20th anniversary of the song. There are so many great Britney costumes that you can do, but I wanted to take it way back to her first single, as the sexy but innocent school girl look from the ...Baby One More Time video is so easy to recreate.

     Here's what you'll need if you want to do this costume:

     I am so excited to wear this costume either this weekend or on Halloween night! So easy and fun to put together, and it's a tribute to one of my favorite artists and 90s pop songs. 

     My company is doing a Halloween costume contest next week- I'm actually doing a different costume for work! My only hint that I'll give is that it's one that I've done in the past... but I've revamped it and made it better for this year! You'll have to stay tuned to my Instagram on Halloween to see that one. 

     Please tag me on Instagram or other social media if you try my Bachelorette costume or this one this year. I'd love to see!

     God Bless,

  1. this is so cute, and such a great idea. i'm also a big fan of zombie-fying "regular" things, so how fun would this also be zombied, lol.

  2. What a fun costume idea! I'm all about going back to the 90s!

  3. super cute! I particularly appreciate the cost effectiveness of this costume. Some of the stuff at the halloween store are budget breakers.

  4. Aww you look great! Love how budget friendly the costume is. It also gives me the nostalgia feels.

  5. Haha, this is such a good idea!

    I was kind of young to catch the Britney Spears mania, but I definitely know the song and remember the outfit.

  6. So cute, Annaliese!!! I can't believe Halloween is almost here! Where did the summer go? Your Brittany Spears costume is adorable - love your pigtails!

  7. Yessss, I love the old school Britney and this is such a classic look! I definitely think this is something I could pull together last minute! I used to spend $50+ on Halloween costumes, but now $10 is my LANGUAGE. Lol

  12. You nailed it!!!! Love the outfit :)

  13. Very funny idea, and it looks great! With I could go as the great Miss Spears!
