How to make a flight attendant costume

Received a last-minute costume party invite? Have no fear! Dressing up for Halloween doesn’t need to be scary or time consuming.

Flight Attendant Halloween Costume

What you’ll need:

  • Shirt
  • Wig
  • Name tag
  • High heels
  • Pencil skirt
  • Glasses

Pencil skirt

Jet over to your closet and find a pencil skirt. A grey or black one will make your costume more uniform. As an alternative, you can use a tailored dress.



Pair your skirt with a solid-color V-neck. Don’t have one? A T-shirt or even a button-up will do. If you really want to go the extra mile, add a blazer that matches your skirt.


Get wigged out

Get the right wig for your flight attendant Halloween costume

Flight attendants are known for their effortless, ready-to-fly hair. If you don’t have a wig, slick your hair back into a low ponytail.



Add some glasses to your flight attendant Halloween costume

Add a pair of glasses to make your look more professional, yet fun. This accessory is optional, but you’ll look prepared to direct everyone to safety at any given moment.


Black pumps

Black pumps are an item most women can find in their closets. If you don’t have any, slip on a simple pair of heels.


Name tag

To complete the Halloween costume, make yourself a name tag. Print off an airline name tag from the Internet, and then tape it onto your shirt. Now, you’re ready for departure. Next stop? That Halloween party!
