(Here’s the backstory to this series)
You have to imagine me saying “EEEEHHHHHHHH” in these photos, Lucy-style.
So I kinda of cheated with this costume. I borrowed the poodle skirt from my mom. When Cher and I were kids, our parents had old cars, and we would travel to car shows with them. At the time, my mom made each of us and herself a poodle skirt. This is my mom’s poodle skirt. (Can I just say DAYUM my mom is tiny. I had to breathe very shallow to get this skirt to stay on. And her feet are smaller than mine. These are size 9 shoes people. I wear an 10/11!!)
For this look you’ll need:
50s style circle skirt or high-waisted, skinny leg pants
White button up or secretary style top
Saddle shoes (oxfords will work)
Short white ankle socks
Cat eye glasses
Skirt, shirt, shoes and scarf: borrowed from mom
To recreate Lucy’s hair, I attempted to curl it and pin it on the top in the faux-hawk/poodle hairstyle Lucy always wore. My hair does not hold curl well, so I faked it.
If you don’t want to be Lucy, you can always use a similar look and be a rock ‘n roll kid from the 50s.
PS- Joe dared me to see how many costumes I can come up with in a week, so in addition to the ones I’m posting on the blog, I’ll be posting quite a few more on the Miss Vinyl Ahoy facebook page. I don’t want to overwhelm everyone here with my Halloween posts, so the extras are facebook exclusives.
