Last Minute Halloween Ideas: Schitt's Creek

This holiday is a great time to get creative with your wardrobe and I have a few last minute Halloween ideas: Schitt’s Creek inspired. With a little bit of effort, you can put together a costume that is both unique and stylish. 

Here are five tips to help you create the perfect Halloween costume from items in your closet:

1. Think outside the traditional Halloween box. Instead of ghosts and witches, dress up as one of your favorite characters. They could be from a book, movie, or TV show like Schitt’s Creek.

2. Get creative with accessories. Scarves, jewelry, and hats can all be used to add personality to your outfit.

3. Use layers to create dimension. Mix and match different textures and patterns to create an interesting and layered look.

4. Think beyond Halloween classics. There are tons of creative costumes that can be assembled from everyday clothes. Consider turning a blazer into a superhero cape or using a white t-shirt as the base for a ghost costume.

5. Have fun with it! The best part about creating your own costume is that there are no rules. So let your imagination run wild and put together a look that is truly one-of-a-kind.

The Making Of Schitt's Creek

Created by Dan and Eugene Levy

Schitt’s Creek is a Canadian sitcom created by Dan and Eugene Levy that premiered on January 13, 2015. The series follows the Roses, a wealthy family who suddenly find themselves broke and forced to move to the small town of Schitt’s Creek, which they had bought years earlier as a joke. The show stars Eugene Levy as Johnny Rose, Catherine O’Hara as Moira Rose, Annie Murphy as Alexis Rose, and Chris Elliott as Roland Schitt.

While the show was initially met with mixed reviews, it has since become a critical darling, with many praising its clever writing and witty humor. In 2017, the show won the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Comedy Series, and O’Hara won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. The show has also been nominated for numerous other awards, including the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

The success of Schitt’s Creek is due in large part to its unique premise and relatable characters. However, it is also a comedy that appeals to viewers of all ages, thanks to its clever writing and intelligent humor. 

Wardrobing The Show

Storytelling Through clothing

One of the things that makes Schitt’s Creek so special is its costume design. The show is set in a small town, and the clothing of the townspeople reflects that. There are a lot of plaid shirts and denim jackets. The men often wear trucker hats and boots, and the women wear sundresses and friendship bracelets. Even the formalwear is casual. It’s all very down-to-earth and relatable.

Contrast that to the Rose family. After fleeing Los Angeles, they not only feel out of place in Schitt’s Creek but look it. Each character has a unique style that helps to define who they are. As the characters grow and change over time, so do their clothes in minor ways. It’s a subtle but effective way of telling the story. The costumes of Schitt’s Creek are an essential part of what makes the show so special.

The Former actress

Moira Rose is a unique and iconic character from the show Schitt’s Creek. She is known for her over-the-top fashion sense, her love of drama, and her grandiose gestures. Moira is also fiercely protective of her family, and she will do anything to help them succeed. Though she can be difficult to deal with at times, Moira is ultimately a kind and caring person. She has a big heart, and is truly one of a kind. Catherine O’Hara plays the part and had a major hand in developing who Moira is and becomes. The character was inspired by real life socialite, Daphne Guinness.

Helpful Tips when putting together your look

From her voluminous wigs to her dramatic makeup, Moira’s look is always sure to turn heads. But what really makes Moira stand out from the crowd are her outrageous costumes. Whether she’s attending a gala or just running errands, Moira is never seen without a lavish ensemble. While some may view Moira’s fashion choices as excessive, there’s no denying that they always make for an interesting sight. After all, where else would you see a sequined gown paired with a fur coat? Thanks to Moira, “Schitt’s Creek” is always a fashion show worth tuning in for. If you want to get the Moira Look keep these tips in mind:

  1. Keep your color palette to black and white with silver accents
  2. More is more is better. Think highly embellished pieces with fur, feathers, sequins and ruffles.
  3. Don’t forget to add a red lip!

The Crows Have Eyes 3 Premiere

My Favorite look of moira's

During the show, former actress Moira Rose has an opportunity to star in a movie. I won’t ruin the fun for anyone who hasn’t seen the show, but I will tell you this is hands down my favorite Moira look. I mentioned on the board that I have found a tutorial for the headband and here it is.

The Video store owner turned motel manager businessman

You might not know his name, but you definitely know his face. Johnny Rose is the lovable patriarch of the hilariously dysfunctional family. Played by actor Eugene Levy, Johnny is a former video store magnate who is forced to move with his wife and children to a small town named Schitt’s Creek after they lose all their money. While he initially struggles to adjust to his new life, Johnny eventually comes to embrace it – and even falls in love with the area! Though he might not be as wealthy as he once was, Johnny Rose is still one of the most kind-hearted and down-to-earth characters on television. And that’s why I can’t help but love him.

Ew, David...My favorite character

David Rose is the black sheep of the wealthy Rose family. He’s a spoiled adult who’s never had to work a day in his life. But when his father’s business empire comes crashing down, David is forced to move to Schitt’s Creek, a small town that his family once bought as a joke for David. At first, David is completely out of his element. He’s used to the finer things in life, and the residents of Schitt’s Creek don’t meet his high standards. David is played by Dan Levy, co-creator of the show and real life son to Eugene Levy. 

Alexis Rose

The spoiled socialite we love

Alexis Rose is the daughter of Johnny and Moira Rose, and the sister of David. She is a spoiled rich girl who has to adjust to life in a small town after he superficial friends ditch her when the money is gone. Alexis is played by actress Annie Murphy. Fun fact: Murphy was about to apply for a job at a retail store right before getting the call to play Alexis. It’s amazing to think that her life changed drastically for better. Alexis is selfish, materialistic and used to getting her own way. However, as the series progresses, she begins to develop more empathy for others and starts to care about something other than herself. While Alexis can be annoying and superficial, she is also funny and lovable. She is one of the most memorable characters on the show.
