I have to say, I was in a rut for Halloween costumes this year. Usually I start researching and brainstorming months in advance, but this year I was overwhelmed by so many other things that it was the last thing on my mind. When I realized I was in desperate need of Halloween inspiration, I turned to my three go-to’s:
Every year I have a lot of emotions around Halloween. They go something like this: excited, determined, overwhelmed, confused, indecisive, excited, REALLY PUMPED! I was somewhere in the confused/indecisive stage when I decided to buy this black and white wig (Mine is unfortunately sold out! Similar wig here and here). Continue reading “One Wig, Two Costumes!”
Halloween always makes me want to bring out a side that no one expects. Being a puppy loving, smile adorned, and (usually) non-aggressive type, Cruella Deville was the perfect opposite character for me. Continue reading “DIY Cruella Deville Costume”
Everyone wants to be a celebrity! And when a celebrity basically doesn’t have a face, it turns out you can replicate their look into a costume pretty much to a tee.
October is here which means it is COSTUME TIME! I actually made this for my Oktoberfest themed birthday party, but it works just as well as a Halloween costume for the upcoming festivities. Really, you can get two events worth of costumes out of this, does it get any better than that?
Over at my house we might be the only people thinking about elaborate 80’s character costumes in the springtime. As you [should] know, a birthday party isn’t complete without a theme, and a theme isn’t complete without a full fledged costume. So for Megan’s 25th, our decades party tradition was continued as we headed back to the 80’s. And with that, I got to have another dream come true: become a rock star with pink hair. The outrageous Jem! Continue reading “80’s Jem and the Holograms Costume DIY”
Getting to be a bunny for Halloween last year was really a highlight of costumes for me. Thus, this year it was going to be hard to top. I kid you not, I think Megan and I spent a whole week trying to come up with a costume. All couples, BFF, and group costumes were discussed and shot down one after another. It felt hopeless; like the more we searched, the higher our expectations were and the less I liked every single idea we came up with. This was supposed to be fun – what the heck was I getting so worked up about!? Continue reading “Taylor Swift Blank Space Costume DIY”
When someone invites you to a 90’s themed costume party, what do you immediately think of? Grunge? Clueless? Zenon girl of the 21st century? All great options. But really, how often do you get the opportunity to wear a rainbow animal angel costume? Time to take advantage of this opportunity while you can!
