Happy Halloween everyone! I used to kind of hate this holiday...my freshman year of college I purposely went home for Halloween weekend just so I didn't have to deal with figuring out a costume and trying to compete with all the girls out there who wear lingerie or something really trashy and call it a costume. But as I've gotten older, I've come to appreciate this holiday as an excuse to get creative and play dress-up. This year I had two costumes again (see last year's here)...on Thursday I was Cruella Deville and Friday I was the Statue of Liberty!
What I'm wearing: Forever 21 dress ($12!), Handmade vest, Target tights, Steve Madden wedges, Gloves from previous costume (not pictured)
What I'm wearing: Sheet from Target (cut by me), Handmade headband and torch
Sorry for the crappy mirror pic; I got ready at my friend's sorority house and didn't have time for proper outfit pictures. If you're ever looking for an easy costume, the statue of liberty is it! All I had to do was buy a sheet from Target and wrap it around me toga-style and then make the accessories from things I already had. For the torch, I took a plastic cup, attached it to an empty paper towel roll, and covered it with tin foil. Scrunch some orange and yellow tissue paper into the top and you have a torch! For the headband, I took an old headband I already had, taped cardboard triangles to it, and wrapped the whole thing in tin foil. Done! Easiest costume everrr!
What were you for Halloween this year?
