Every Halloween Look I Created This Spooky Season, From Ghostbusters to Candy Corn

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks in a pumpkin outfit.
Halloween may be over, but you know what? Spooky season is still living rent free in my head for at least another week or two! (Hey, I mean, someone's gotta eat all the candy I bought for myself this year.) I figured this was the perfect time to do a roundup of all my spooky season outfits! From participating in the month-long Instagram challenge #Boundoween (hosted by @thedisneybound and @bounderstyle) to creating a whole week of looks dedicated to the one and only best Halloween candy — CANDY CORN! — I really enjoyed putting looks together this month. Check out everything I created!

LOOKS FOR #BOUNDOWEEN

While I didn't participate in this challenge every day, I definitely enjoyed the ones where I dropped in! It was fun to think outside the bounding box and come up with looks for characters and fandoms besides Disney.

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks in a Beetlejuice bound.

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice! I HAD to do a look inspired by the ghost with the most. I decided to wear this maxi skirt as a dress, added a green headband to replicate his green hair, and used this adorable mini bag modeled after The Handbook for the Recently Deceased. Plus, I shot this in my spooky apartment courtyard. I love how it turned out!

"I got a rock." What's your favorite Halloween special, and why is it "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!"? This one was a true labor of love. I shot it with my tripod in my apartment "graveyard", which was pretty difficult since I had a sheet over my head and literally couldn't see anything! I just hoped that 1) I was actually in the shot 2) no one would come along and steal my tripod and phone while the sheet was over my head. I also added the dots in Picsart afterward. This one definitely came out exactly how I envisioned!

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks with a Wizard of Oz bound.

"There's no place like home." For a day inspired by The Wizard of Oz, I teamed up with my favorite buddy bounder — my awesome mom! While I may not have ever gotten to play Dorothy, at least I could live out my fantasies by bounding like her. Plus, how amazing is my mom as The Tin Man?
ASOS romper. Jennifer Loiselle earrings. Quirky Crate purse. Dolce & Gabbana shoes.

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks in an Evil Queen from Snow White bound.

"Dip the apple in the brew. Let the Sleeping Death seep through." For the Disney Villains prompt, I chose the Evil Queen from Snow White. As villains go, she's truly terrifying! Plus, my friend Cari told me that my sparkly Docs are reminiscent of the Dwarves' jewels!
Amazon cardigan and purse. ASOS dress. Rarity by Casey headband. Little Something Studio earrings. Doc Martens boots.

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks in a Queen of Hearts Disney bound from Alice in Wonderland.

"Off with her head!" This was definitely a last minute bound, but I'm really happy with how it came together — especially for shooting it at 7am right outside my apartment door! Also, it's REALLY hard for me not to smile in photos.

LOOKS INSPIRED BY GHOSTBUSTERS

Yes, I love Ghostbusters. Can you tell?! This year I decided to do three separate bounds inspired by the characters in the movie, mainly spurred by the two amazing Loungefly bags I simply had to buy. And also because I am SUPER excited for Ghostbusters: Afterlife!

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks in a Ghostbusters Peter Venkman bound at the New York Public Library.

"Back off, man. I'm a scientist." I shot this Peter Venkman bound at the New York Public Library during my trip to New York back in August (click here to check out my stay at The Ludlow Hotel!). My friend @secondstarrunner was incredible enough to shoot it for me, and I absolutely love what we captured! Plus, this Loungefly Ghostbusters backpack is MY FAVORITE PURCHASE TO DATE. I've been using it nonstop!

dress. Zenni Optical glasses. Imyourpresent earrings. Loungefly backpack. Converse sneakers. 

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks in a Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man bound from Ghostbusters.

"I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something that could never, ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay-Puft." I created a Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man bound last year and it was one of my favorite looks ever. This year I decided to do a brand-new one and shoot it outside my awesome spooky apartment complex. The earrings really bring it to life, don't you think?
Unique Vintage dress. Chronicles of a Pixie headband. Freckles Mark earrings. Loungefly backpack. Chloe pumps.

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks in a Slimer from Ghostbusters bound.

"He slimed me." YOU GUYS. LOOK AT THIS SLIMER BACKPACK. How could I NOT create a Slimer bound with it?! All that's missing is a pouch of Hi-C Ecto-Cooler!

LOOKS FOR CANDY CORN WEEK

Why yes, I did in fact dedicate an entire week's worth of outfits to the best candy there is — CANDY CORN! And it's not just about the aesthetic, I truly love the candy. Do not come for me! I could think of nothing sweeter than creating five different looks inspired by the candy that makes my Halloween spooky AND sweet!

Twirling at the Spadena House in Beverly Hills (AKA The Witch's House) in an orange tutu? Yep, this was my ideal way to kick off Candy Corn Week!
Amazon tutu (worn as a dress) and sunglasses. Enchanted Alexandra headband. Messypink earrings. Loungefly bag. JustFab sneakers.

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks in a candy corn costume.

I'm a candy corn. Duh. These are definitely some of those items that sit in my closet all year, just WAITING for their chance to shine. And shine they did!
Yandy poncho and hat. Modcloth leggings. Amazon sunglasses. Femme de Bloom earrings. JustFab booties.

Dancing around in a cardigan inspired by candy corn? Kind of my favorite thing!

As soon as I saw this dress, I knew it was perfect for Candy Corn Week! My friend Hannah shot this for me and it was just so fun to twirl around!

What would Candy Corn Week be without at least one picture at Disneyland? I had been dying to get this dress from Nuuly for months, and it finally worked out just in time! I HAD to take a photo at the Cozy Cone Motel at Cars Land in California Adventure!

LOOKS FOR DISNEYLAND

There's just nothing like going to Disneyland during Halloween. And while I always love trying all the spooky treats (Alien Vampire Macaron, I'm looking at you!), it's also always so much fun to just walk around and take in the Halloween vibes. Also, if you don't get a picture with the Mickey Pumpkin on Main Street, have you even really gone to Disneyland during Halloween?

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks at the Mickey pumpkin in Disneyland with a Loungefly Hocus Pocus backpack.

Ah, the Mickey pumpkin. It's how you truly know you're at Disneyland for Halloween! And what better companion than this AMAZING Hocus Pocus backpack?!
ASOS dress. Best Day Ever Ears Co. Minnie ears. Sweetflower Kiss earrings. Loungefly backpack.

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks with a candy corn inspired dress at Cars Land in California Adventure at Disneyland.

Okay, yes, I used this dress twice! But really, can you blame me?! I love the candy corn vibes! I actually wore it here before the photo above, during my first night at Disneyland during Halloween time!
Free the Roses from Nuuly dress. Enchanted Alexandra headband. Zenni Optical sunglasses. Made By Magic Designs earrings.

Jamie Allison Sanders is showing off her Halloween Spooky Season looks in a polka dot denim jumpsuit and pumpkin accessories at Pixar Pier in Disneyland/California Adventure.

There are many things that make this one of my favorite photos from all of Halloween season. 1) It's my new favorite pose to show off awesome Minnie ears. 2) I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS POLKA DOT DENIM JUMPSUIT. 3) It's definitely the best photo I've ever taken in front of Mickey's Fun Wheel on Pixar Pier. 4) THAT LIGHT THOUGH.
