costume craze

3rd October 2012

boo, ah!
it’s finally on of my favorite months of the year: october! i love this month because of the pumpkin blizzard, the much needed break in the weather and because my favorite holiday falls right at the end of it… halloween! to celebrate in style, i am dedicated one post a week to diy halloween costume ideas, here we go!

“look at me i’m sandra dee” the first costume is a bit of a blast from the past
start with big blonde hair and a bad-girl attitude and you are on your way from sandra dee to sandy
if the good girl turned bad isn’t for you, go green!

with this summer’s batman movie debut, cat woman will be a very popular costume. so why don’t you give those kitties a run for their money by going as another batman villianess. 
see 5 more poison ivy looks here
in need of a cute, easy and unique diy costume? you can do it – just like rosie
this cute retro outfit is simple and easy but a complete show stopper, if you aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty. throw your hair up in a old-school do && roll up those sleeves you’re ready to go!
if you don’t like to get too decked out for halloween, but still want to show some spirit a where’s waldo costume may be the perfect fit.
with simple and wearable pieces, this costume is cute && comical without being too over the top.
so tell me tell me, what did you think of these diy halloween costumes? well if you didn’t find quite what you are looking for, don’t turn away yet!
that’s right, for this month I will be taking requests! so please leave me comments or send me messages with costume ideas you have && i would love to show you easy ways to make it happen! i look forward to hearing from you!

      its red valentino! i would just make one, get a fitted black tee from forever 21, as tight as you can especially around the shoulders, and cut the neck out (about half a inch all the way around)!
