11 Iconic Moira Rose Costume Ideas to Inspire You This Halloween
With Halloween just weeks away, it’s officially time to start costume hunting. The spooky season is filled with endless opportunities to get creative and honor your favorite TV, movie, and book figures, and one character worth channeling this Halloween is the perfectly extraordinary, avant-garde Moira Rose from Schitt’s Creek.
Moira, portrayed by television and film legend Catherine O’Hara, is the matriarch of the Rose family and had a successful career as a dramatic actress on the show’s fictionalized soap opera “Sunrise Bay” before losing her fortune after being scammed by the family business manager. After relocating to the small town of Schitt’s Creek, Moira continuously attempts to bring her socialite status to the town by dressing fashionably, adorning a variety of wigs, and even embellishing her speech and vocabulary to appear more posh.
Embracing your inner Moira Rose this Halloween does not require breaking the bank and burning a hole in your wallet. Rather, you can create a costume around the eccentric character using staple items you probably already have in your wardrobe and embellish them with inexpensive accessories. Remember, part of becoming Moira is also about bringing out your classy side! Add in a bit of absurdity, a completely made-up accent, and of course, drama, and you will be unrecognizable as arguably “Schitt’s Creek’s” best character.
Throughout the show’s six seasons, Moira Rose’s wardrobe has featured some incredible pieces, ranging from her iconic ruffled dress and feathered hat in season two’s “Finding David,” to her show-stopping blonde wig and papal hat in the series finale, “Happy Ending.” If you’re looking to wow your friends as Moira Rose this Halloween, try recreating these 11 outfits from the show!
