Happy almost Halloween!!
I really excited about this holiday because it will be the first time I take the princess trick or treating and her first Halloween party. (I tell you, her social calendar is way more exciting than mine!) So being the type-A person I am, I spent the last month trying to figure out our costumes, settling on a theme just a few weeks ago. But if you’ve been procrastinating and or don’t want a spend a fortune on a quick and cute costume, no worries! I got you covered. 😉
What I Wore
Rosie the Riveter
The symbol of the can-do woman! All you need to pull this off is a denim shirt, a pair of jeans, a red bandanna, and a fierce red lip.
Stylish Red Riding Hood
The perfect excuse to wear (or to buy!) that cute little red cocktail dress! Add a pair of black pumps, an inexpensive cape, and basket and you’re good to go.
Cable Car Couture
Any black outfit can work when pulling this costume off, as long as it’s sleek and form fitted. Dark winged liner, voluminous lashes, and a bold red lipstick are all you need makeup wise. Grab a dark wig or (rock your own) to finish the costume off. (bonus points for a white powdered face.
I love the movie Despicable Me, especially those cute little minions! To be your own version of this character, you’ll need a bright yellow shirt, a pair jean overalls (or jeans with black suspenders), black gloves, and over-sized goggles. You could also throw in a yellow skull cap and black tights too! If you don’t have anything like this in your closet, your local thrift store is the perfect place to look.
A Pageant Queen
Poofy dress, big hair, heavy on the makeup, tiara, and sash – super easy! Hit up a thrift store for a fancy dress and an accessories store like Claire’s for a tiara. A sash is real easy to make yourself. Hair spray and gel can make your hair as big as you want it to and just go extra on the makeup.
