10 Halloween Costumes You Can Find On Poshmark

While Halloween 2020 may look a little different this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t still dress up and get in the spooky spirit at home! We’ve compiled 10 Posh-approved costumes that anyone can recreate—from your favorite Netflix characters to classic costumes for the whole family! Keep reading to discover iconic costumes you can find right on Poshmark.

1. A Couple of Cool Cats: Tiger King’s Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin 

Netflix’s Tiger King hit screens in early March 2020, and boy did it cause an uproar. Viewers went wild binge-watching the docuseries that sparked major controversy, making headlines left and right. We had a feeling this wouldn’t be the last time we would hear from the big-cat loving rivals, Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic. Now you can create Carole Baskin’s signature, hippie look featuring a flower crown headpiece, either an animal print top or a tie dye blouse, and some loose fitted jeans. Or opt for Joe’s sequin top, reflective sporty sunnies, and some extra tight skinny jeans.

2. Here for the Boo’s: Ghosts of TikTok

Boo! The classic ghost costume is back and just as easy as before, but this time it’s taking TikTok by storm with the #GhostPhotoshoot challenge. Don’t believe us? Just ask any Gen Z-er or check it out for yourself here. Here’s what you’ll need: a white sheet and a pair of sunglasses, that’s it! And if you want to take the challenge, just grab a camera, snap some spooky pictures, and tag us @poshmark.

3. The Last Dance: Michael Jordan’s Legacy

Michael Jordan is a house-hold name for those who love the game of basketball and even for those who don’t, which is why his new docuseries, The Last Dance, was a slam dunk for many. This Halloween, you can rep #23 with a pair of Air Jordan sneakers, the classic Chicago bulls NBA jersey, and top it off with some Air Jordan Basketball shorts.

4. A Loaf Story: Banana Bread

If you haven’t tried baking banana bread at some point this year are you even doing 2020 right? Whether you consider yourself a master baker or still need to perfect your recipe, this banana bread-inspired costume with banana accessories (skirt, earrings, sandals) and bread apparel galore, like this epic Wonder logo t-shirt, is sure to work up an appetite. Maybe it’ll even inspire someone else to get in the kitchen and start baking! 

5. Self-Care Season: Be You. Do You. For You.

If there’s one thing 2020 has taught us, it’s that self-care is truly the best care. So get comfy, put on a cute robe for you and your mini (here), add some furry slippers, and throw a towel wrap around your hair to prep for the last finishing touch, a luxe face mask. There’s nothing a little TLC can’t fix this spooky season!

6. US(P.S.) We Love You: Postal Workers

What would we do without our amazing USPS workers? They work tirelessly all year, and what better way to show your appreciation than by dressing up as your favorite mail carrier! You know what they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so put on some navy cargo shorts, a blue button-up shirt, a bucket hat, and a crossbody duffle. Bonus points if you carry around a (free) USPS package or customize your look with a “PoshMail Thank You” sticker. Be sure to snap a photo with your local USPS heroes.

7. Go Beyond the Reef: Moana

No matter your age, Disney’s Moana has become a feel-good classic practically overnight. So channel your inner Moana, dream about sailing the sea, and see how far you’ll go to dress the part. Shop Moana Costumes Here.

8. One in a Minion: Despicable Me

What’s small, blue, and yellow all over? You guessed it. In case you need costumes that will suit the whole family, the adorable minion gang is here to save the day! Dressing the part is easy, especially when you can shop the endless Minion costumes right here on Poshmark.

9. Spotted in Stripes: Where’s Waldo?

Dressing up as Where’s Waldo for Halloween may be as easy as searching through your closet for a red and white striped shirt and a pair of blue bottoms. But in the case that you don’t happen to have these items lying around, don’t worry we got you covered! Shop all things Where’s Waldo, from tees to dresses and his staple beanie and glasses, on Poshmark now!

10. She’s The Schitt: Moira Rose

Enter the comedy that took the world AND the Emmy’s by storm this year: Schitt’s Creek. Steal the dramatic look of the incredibly fabulous, ex-soap star, Moira Rose. How, you ask? Stick to black and white and turn the drama and accessories way up. Create your very own Moira Rose inspired look with a black patent leather jacket, cat-eye sunnies, a bold statement necklace, and a chic pair of fingerless gloves. Bonus points for adding her signature dark lip, unplaceable accent, and a bébé of your own: a wig! 

PoshFest 2020 Recap: Building Your Brand, Leveling Up Your Business, And More!

PoshFest 2020 was one for the books. For the first time ever, our annual conference went virtual, allowing Poshers to tune in and join the festivities right at home!

On Learning to Building Your Brand 

Whether you’re working on building your brand presence within Poshmark or on your other social platforms, this year’s lineup of social media experts were ready to give you all the pointers you need to grow your online brand.

  • Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. @shopfoxburrow explained it best during her breakout session, Creating a Brand That Stands Out: “I found that once I started to put my face with my brand and in my photos, not only did they get way more Likes on Poshmark where once I was doing a dressform, it also gave my brand a new face.” 
  • Be consistent. Be yourself. Keep learning. Just before speaking during the Thriving and Subscribing on YouTube breakout session, @beckypark shared her 3 top tips on successfully building your YouTube presence. Although this breakout session focused solely on YouTube, these tips can easily be translated into any other social platform. 
  • The 3 P’s. @bysimonedennis broke down 3 main ideas that helped her build her business. Purpose: What do you want your business to achieve? Pizzazz: What makes you stand out? Project: Where do you want your business to go? 

Time to Get Serious 

We can’t make money moves without understanding the nitty gritty. This year, we dove into everything from bookkeeping to creating spreadsheets that make sense for YOU.

  • Establish a routine. Determine how often you run your reports and pivot your business when you start noticing different trends and accommodate according to what’s happening in the world.
  • Know your desired outcome. Come up with a plan of action and create attainable goals for your closet.  
  • Set your business up for success. If you’re serious about moving your business from part-time to full-time, @shopnccloset breaks down the top 3 things you need before you start: business registration and licensing, determine your tax structure, and open a business bank account. 

Utilize all the Tools Poshmark Offers

Our team is always working to create the best tools to help your business succeed. While this year’s Hackathon Reveal announced a few NEW features coming soon, our speakers remind us of the current available tools that are just as beneficial. 

  • Fifteen seconds is all you need. @evolvingalways takes advantage of Posh Stories to advertise what’s for sale and drive potential buyers to her closet. 
  • Communicate with your buyer. Use the Bundle feature to spark a conversation and open a line of communication so that you can help style your shopper. 
  • Price Drop + Closet Clear Out work hand in hand. Drop your prices once Closet Clear Out rolls around so potential buyers will get notified about a lower price PLUS score discounted shipping! Win-win. 

The More You Know, The More You Grow

Want to improve your sales? This year’s speakers were FULL of #PoshTips on how to move merchandise and push those sales out the door!

  • Improve your listing details for SEO. This is perfect real estate to inform anyone about your item and will not only help your buyer know exactly what they’ll be receiving but will also allow Google to learn and optimize for SEO.  
  • Know your keywords. Always use descriptive keywords to accurately describe the item. Use unique words to differentiate your product. #PoshTip: Include the style code!
  • The Dos and Don’ts for Covershots: 
    • DO have a clear view of the main product being sold
    • DO accurately display the entire product.
    • DO use a solid white or transparent background color.
    • DON’T use props that cover the product.
    • DON’T use a generic image, graphic, or illustration.
    • DON’T use an image with a border or watermark. 

We asked Poshers to describe the Poshmark community in one word. Here is what they had to say!

Virtual Posh N Coffee Recap: Meet the Hosts–Julia, Emma, & Jennifer

This summer, we hosted our second round of virtual Posh N Coffee events! These virtual meetings are a series of educational events hosted by Posh Ambassadors geared towards helping YOU level up your business.

We reached out to 3 rockstar virtual Posh N Coffee hosts to learn more about their host experience. Check out their responses below! Interested in becoming a host for the next round? Head to our official website.

JULIA (@jvells)

Introduce yourself, with your name + closet name, where you are from, how long you have been on Poshmark.
Hello Poshers! My name is Julia, my closet name @jvells. I’m from the amazing city of Chicago & have been Poshing for just over a year and a half.

Why did you choose to become a Posh N Coffee host, and how was your experience? 
I became a Virtual Posh N Coffee host as an opportunity to share, learn, mentor & empower other women to grow their businesses & become leaders in their own way. This experience has been a great way to connect with other Poshers around the country and to learn from each other.

What are your biggest takeaways since hosting?
My biggest takeaways so far have been that every event is unique & works best when everyone takes the opportunity to participate. Having conversations with smaller groups has helped develop ideas of pivoting our businesses in rapidly changing circumstances. The best part is celebrating each other’s wins and to support each other as we work through challenges.

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to fellow Poshers interested in becoming a host in the future? 
My goal for each event is to teach others and learn something from everyone who joins the conversation. I would recommend future Posh N Coffee hosts to prepare 2-3 topics to start the conversation and allow time for open discussion. That is the part of the event where some of the best insights and laughs happen.

Anything else you’d like to share about your Posh N Coffee experience? 
I am excited to host the next one! I can’t wait to hear what others have been up to since the last conversation and learn from others who have never joined an event. 

EMMA (@emcc1)

Introduce yourself, with your name + closet name, where you are from, how long you have been on Poshmark.
I’m Emma (@emcc1 on Posh), and I have been a full-time Posher since July 2016. I live in the southwestern part of Virginia with my husband and our 2 boys. 

How did you discover Poshmark?
A friend recommended Poshmark as a great way to make money selling clothes that I no longer wore, and within just a few short days, I was hooked!

Why did you choose to become a Posh N Coffee host, and how was your experience? 
With almost 20 years of reselling experience and a background in marketing, I was so excited to have the opportunity to be a Posh N Coffee host. I felt that it was a great way to connect with fellow Poshers, something I was desperately missing during the pandemic, and share my knowledge. 

What are your biggest takeaways since hosting?
Since hosting, I have learned just how important it truly is to our business to connect and share ideas with others. I have learned so much in these few short months and never had these opportunities had it not been for Posh N Coffee. 

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to fellow Poshers who are interested in becoming a host in the future? 
If I could give one piece of advice to someone interested in hosting a Posh N Coffee, I would first tell them to “Go for it!” It is such a fun way to grow and expand your Poshmark knowledge and meet new PFF. Secondly, preparation is key. Take some time to research your weekly topic and create a list of open-ended questions to help keep the conversation flowing.

JENNIFER JONES (@duchessofmalibu)

Introduce yourself, with your name + closet name, where you are from, how long you have been on Poshmark.
My name is Jennifer Jones McIntyre, and I have been on Poshmark since January 2016 as @duchessofmalibu. I am the mother of 4 sons, and I live in Westlake Village, California.

Why did you choose to become a Posh N Coffee host, and how was your experience?
When the Posh N Coffee format started in March – like many, we thought it would only last a few weeks. But our group was unique. Many of the Poshers know each other from share groups and other online events. The group of Poshers came from all over the United States. We bonded immediately and so effortlessly. During the week, in-between Zooms, there was a lot of support in sharing or helping with sales. 

When the new meeting started – there was a lot of excitement about sales and listing strategies and well-wishes as each of us dealt with the stay at home orders mandated in our differing home states. After the scheduled Poshmark dates, I decided to continue with the weekly Zooms – we have been at it since March. Initially, I followed the agenda provided by Team Poshmark – but there were so many more questions and concerns – we had so much to share that many of our Zooms lasted almost three hours.

What are your biggest takeaways since hosting? 
Being a Posh N Coffee host has benefited me more than I imagined. Whilst I enjoy the ongoing support from fellow Poshers, I have also enjoyed the additional time I have spent with new Poshers. There can be so many questions that crop up – with each concern – each of us become more confident with our closets and our listings. I looked forward to announcing the Saturday chats on both Poshmark and Instagram, keeping the discussion active and fluent. Poshers continue to contact me through bundles or DMs, and there is never a bad question. If I am unable to offer information, I find the person who can. The essence of making lives better both economically and socially has been established through the community we build, and Poshmark offers a convenient platform towards a shareable framework of like-minded resellers.

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to fellow Poshers who are interested in becoming a host in the future? 
Being a part of Posh N Coffee is more than hosting – it is full-time mentorship. The outstanding relationships I am building allow me to share my professional knowledge and expertise in this collaborative business model. I have a genuine interest in the Poshers whom I have met on Zoom, and there is a willingness on my part to help them become successful. This may be a volunteer program, but my investment in each Posher’s success has helped empower each of them to develop their strengths, beliefs, and personal attributes.

Q: Let’s talk sourcing. Where do you get your inventory and how has your strategy evolved recently?  
A: Before COVID-19, I did a lot of thrifting at local thrift shops. I like supporting the mom and pop stores around me. I also went to the Goodwill outlet centers, called “the bins.” I was fortunate enough when COVID-19 hit I had a huge “death pile” (aka clothing that hasn’t been listed yet). I also started sourcing online [like David did]. I found multiple closets that do 5 for $25, mystery boxes, or reseller boxes and I’ve purchased a few of those. By selling one item you can triple the money you spent, don’t sleep on Poshmark guys!

Q: What strategies do you have for making a sale?
A: Definitely using the new Copy Listing feature. Going through and relisting my stuff constantly has really helped pick up sales!

Q: What is one thing you wish you knew when you first started on Poshmark?
A: A big thing I always say, is that you don’t have to have the biggest and the best equipment. Since we’re all college students, it’s really hard to have a bunch of money to get ring lights and have a gorgeous set up.

I love sharing the story of my dorm, from one wall to the other wall, it was 6 ft. I stood up on my dorm bed and on the other side of the wall, I had a little shelf and I put my phone up there on a timer and opened my window for some natural light, and stood up on my bed and did some awkward model shots. That was my set up. You can’t necessarily always afford the best things, but get creative, be confident in yourself, and find your own style.

Q: Where do you get your inventory and how has your strategy evolved recently?  
A: Since COVID-19, I have purchased one bundle box from a Poshmark seller I follow on Instagram. Purchasing bundles on Poshmark is a great way to source while COVID-19 is happening and is also a great way to support a fellow Posher while acquiring inventory at a low cost. Now I’m back reselling my own items along with other family members while waiting out COVID-19. 

Q: What is your top sourcing tip?
A: I love a good deal and anything that catches my eye. When sourcing, I’m always hunting for good name brands at good prices to resell while having a large selection of women’s items. 

Q: What strategies do you have for making a sale?
A: Aside from providing new listings, I really focus on the overall customer experience to all the Poshers who are looking at and shopping in my closet. Great customer service is very different on Poshmark via in-person (totally different dynamic).

I have taken all my learnings from my in-person training and have applied them online to Poshmark. If someone likes an item, I will go to the Bundle Feature and add the liked item (or items) into a bundle with a personal comment letting them know a about a sale or answer any questions while providing a great customer experience.

Q: What are your favorite Poshmark tools or features and why?
A: I really love the new Copy Listing feature on the app! This is a great way to give a listing “New Life” update without having to keep dropping the price. Also, this is a great way to create a new listing without redoing all the info, size, pictures. It’s so easy! 

Q: You’re all reps in our Posh On Campus program. How has getting involved with the community helped you?
A: What sets Poshmark apart from all others is the community and the millions of users but we’re still so tight-knit. All the events and programs really help bring the community together.

Being part of Poshmark has taught me to be my own manager, finance team, merchandiser, fulfillment, and supply-chain. These skills have taught me so much responsibility to apply in my real world. I consider this part of my professional profile! Poshmark has also taught me so much about customer experience, the fashion industry, marketing/branding, and time management. Along with putting myself out there while setting goals!

Q: Where do you get your inventory and how has your strategy evolved recently?  
A: My inventory comes from my own closet. I like to rotate my wardrobe a lot, and I usually buy my personal pieces off Poshmark. As soon as the season changes, I’ll list the items that I’m ready to part with. I’m a big fan of supporting small businesses, and it’s important to recycle clothes until they can no longer be used so there is less textile waste. 

Q: What are your favorite Poshmark tools or features and why?
A: I like the Bundle Feature because it lets you talk to buyers on a personal level. The comments don’t have to be public. I’ve had a buyer provide me their exact measurements, and I was able to advise her accurately if something would fit her based on that personal information. You can customize your pricing just for the buyer too. It’s a great way to connect personally. 

Q: You’re all reps in our Posh On Campus program. How has getting involved with the community helped you?
A: My second semester I became a rep, and it changed my entire college experience. We would do photoshoots in our Posh On Campus sweaters, and it was really fun. The community of Poshmark resellers is the most supportive group. We have a huge group chat with 100+ resellers, and we all support each other’s closest and sales. We get so many opportunities on Poshmark that not all resellers get, which makes it unique. All the Posh On Campus reps come from such different backgrounds and majors, so there are a lot of unique perspectives. 

Q: What’s one goal you want to achieve by the end of 2020?
A: I want to have more listings by the end of 2020. I have a smaller closet right now, so I really want to grow that. Poshmark is my portfolio, so the more I grow it, it shows that I’m serious about this. I have 300 right now, but I want to get to 500 by the end of the year.
