(If you didn’t see it, here’s the backstory to this series)
This costume is another easy one if you own a vintage dress or a shift dress. Using Twiggy as my inspiration, I wore a vintage dress, green flats and attempted to make my hair not look like I had bangs. It kinda worked.
You will need:
Shift dress or skinny vintage dress
Hairspray and hair pins (if you have long hair)
Vintage dress: Etsy
Earrings: Forever 21
I did my makeup similar to Twiggy’s, using this graphic I found:
I made my hair as flat to my head as possible, pinning it in place. I sprayed the heck outta my bangs so they’d stay to the side, and they kinda did.
It’s another simple, easy costume.
Up next, Ke$ha…
Just beginning to think about what you’d like to be for Halloween?
Starting next week, and heading into October, I’ll be showcasing 10 costumes of the (simple) DIY and shop-your-closet/wear-stuff-you-already-own variety.
I’m sick of all the “sexy” costumes and I’m sick of spending a fortune on something I’ll never wear again, aren’t you?
If you missed my twitpic last night, my official Halloween costume is in the above collage. I made the hat last night using 120 feet of ribbon. It’s so heavy, I have to figure out how to attach it to my head.
Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I’m pretty excited about my new feature 🙂
PS- I’ve made myself a Facebook page. For outtake photos, sneak peaks and random other bits of fun, please “like” it 🙂
Around this time of the year (you know, my birthday!) I begin to think about Halloween. I LOVE Halloween.
I love dressing up, I love the parties. But I do not like paying for a new costume every year. So, beginning September 24, I’ll be posting free, shop-in-your-closet Halloween costume ideas (with my interpretation!) every Friday, plus a few extra days leading up to Halloween.
I’ve decided on most of the costumes I want to recreate, but I also want to give you all a chance to request one from me. This way, we can see how truly creative I can be!
So, bring it on. What would you like to see me (attempt) to recreate for free for Halloween?
PS- yes, those are my pumpkins for a year or so ago. I always make them puke. I don’t know why…
