We all need something to look forward to especially during this time of pandemic, which has put many Halloween plans on hold, from visiting haunted houses to trick-or-treating, dressing up to hanging out with friends. Halloween may be canceled this year, but this doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate in our little ways.
Are you set to attend any online Halloween costume party in the coming days? Here are some unique Chinese-inspired Halloween costumes to consider!
1. Landlady from ‘Kung Fu Hustle’
Remember this iconic character in Kung Fu Hustle? In a town full of crooks and thugs, she is known by all as the toughest woman, middle-aged, chain-smoking Landlady (Yuen Qiu) of Pig Sty Alley. Her effective weapons include the ‘Lion’s Roar’ strategy, the ‘Roadrunner’s ability’ to fly, and red slippers. The landlady runs the slum with an iron hand. To pull off the look, all you need is a white or pink duster dress combined with hair curlers, a pair of slides, and a newspaper.
