Our 6 favorite Halloween versions of the Shining Twins

2 min read


As predicted, the Shining twins win the best Halloween costume every year.

The famous Grady twin sisters in Stanley Kubrick's famous movie The Shining from 1980 will forever haunt us with their eerie line "Come play with us, Danny. Forever… and ever… and ever." 

The costume is a great twinning costume (and as a store twins you know we gravitate towards those!). How do you put the costume together? You can pull it off with it a light blue dress with white silk belt (like this one), long white socks, black China doll shoes and side-parted hair with hair clips in. AND most importantly a TWIN (whether it be your actual twin, sister, friend, parent, etc). 

Here is the original version of the Grady twins costume (cover photo is actually the dresses hung in the Stanley Kubrick exhibition in LACMA in Los Angeles):
