Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, hands down. I love going through costume ideas and then getting out my sewing machine and creating my next epic Halloween. I am a firm believer in making your own Halloween costume whether that means you actually sew the whole costume together from scratch or you go buy pieces to assemble…whatever you do STEER CLEAR OF THE COSTUME STORES!! You will overspend a significant amount on something the equivalent of a trash bag. Do not do it!
My last year's costume was Marie Antoinette. I used a mask a beautiful lace mask I had bought as a souvenir in Italy, and I styled my hair into a massive bouffant and powdered it with baby powder. It was very fun!
Here are some costume ideas I have been toying with for this Halloween...
I always go for costumes that have very involved hair and makeup, I think that's the best thing about Halloween, getting lost in the character. So whether you are Smurfette or Dios de las Muertas, go heavy on the costume makeup!
I realized the other day, that I have never been a villain which I think has a lot of potential for a very fun Halloween costume. What do you think…Elphaba (aka The Wicked Witch of the West) or Poison Ivy?
I will be bringing you Halloween costume ideas throughout the week so be sure you are checking back in. What are your ideas for an epic Halloween this year?
