So you’re looking to dress up as a character from your favorite movie for Halloween, but there either aren’t any of the crucial accessories available on the market, or there are and they’re just amazingly expensive. Well never fear, because over the next few weeks I’ll show you some amazing deals on jewelry that completes the look of your favorite characters from popular movies. This week, we start with Twilight.
To fake Bella’s style, the thing that will really make her character come alive for you is the jewelry. There are a few items to choose from that her character is constantly seen wearing and here they are:
Her turquoise bracelet
There are several replicas out there that can get pretty pricey, but to cut out the cost, your best option is to just go for faux turquoise and stick to a similar shape, like this bracelet has. At just $17.99 it’s a major steal, and a great way to get the same feel for a lower price.
Her charm bracelet
Instead of paying full price for a replica, you can make your own fairly easily for about half the cost. Just check out this combo. The belly ring is around seven dollars and the necklace is made with real Swarovski crystal and runs just $15.99. Throw the wolf charm onto the chain and wrap it around your wrist twice. Voila! Budget Bella charm bracelet.
Her engagement ring
This is probably the easiest to get a cheaper version of if you know where to look. Just look for an oval costume ring like this one; only $14.99.
The piece of jewelry that represents Alice is her choker necklace, and it’s incredibly easy to make one yourself. All you’ll need is a length of ribbon and a charm, brooch, or even a ring to connect the ends. Since Alice’s pendant is circular and bears her family crest, a ring like this one is an ideal stand in.
Many of the volturi characters wear gold jewelry with their own v-shaped crest on it like the piece seen on Jane. To fake it you’ll just need a faux gold chain with a similar shape and style pendant. Because of the v-like shape and floral elements, a fleur de lis is the perfect budget alternative.
Like most of the male Cullen characters, lead vampire Edward doesn’t wear a lot of accessories, but the one thing that sets his character apart is the leather braclet we see him in that has a silver family crest on it. Luckily there is a great a way to cut spending for this item in half by adopting a good fake. This one, for example, looks almost just like it and is only $19.99. Sweet deal, huh?
