Happy October! Now that the crisp weather is here its almost time for one of my favorite holidays! I have loved Halloween since I was a little kid! (and not for the candy part, I oddly don't have a sweet tooth) I adore the idea of being anything you've ever wished, if only for a night! I've been a princess, a witch, and most recently a very gory zombie sailor pinup girl! My favorite part of Halloween is making your costume and all the details that are involved in it! This post I'll share with you some of my favorite costumes in the past few years I've made!
NINJA TURTLES!! I kind of have an obsession with ninja turtles! (who didn't love them as a child of the 90s!) My friends and I all decided to be the ninja turtles and the costume was pretty easy, and cheap to make! We bought ninja turtle backpacks. (which I still use all the time just cause haha) and I had shorts previously from aerie! I bought a five dollar shirt from joyce leslie and fabric, again from the beloved Joanne Fabrics! We had body paint and if I do say myself my abs were killer! hahaha
This last costume is one of my favs! I've been dying to go beyond the typical "slutty white girl" costume. Its still kind of typical but I tried to gore it up a bit! I was a "pin-up" zombie. I loved marking up all my "sailor" accessory's with blood. The best part of this is definitely the fake wounds and falling apart skin! I might have been slightly allergic to the fake wounds because my skin got all itchy and red! pain is beauty. (or gore) haha. So there are a few of my most recent creations! I'm still trying to figure out what direction I am going to go with this year for halloween but I have a few ideas swirling around! If anyone has any ideas let me know! :) <3
