I'm gunna be a supermodel

It's November 1st, so here's the enevitable "what I wore on Halloween" post. Y'all knew it was coming. As with most people's Halloween costumes, mine came together at the last minute. My first idea came to be about a month ago... well, maybe I'll just show you before I go any furthur...

I had the idea to be Cher from Clueless, but after many thrift store rummaging and eBay searching it was looking pretty impossible to find a yellow plaid skirt and matching blazer (it HAD to be that outfit). Then one day, after searching a new combonation of "plaid" "jacket" "skirt" "yellow" etc on eBay I FINALLY found something that just might work. I ordered it in a heartbeat barely skimming the description, and when I got it in the mail I realized it was waaaaaay too small! My mom and I figured we could add some fabric inserts from the scrap cloth left after shortening the skirt, and it turned out perfectly! So happy it all came together!

Suit - eBay, cardigan - thrifted, shoes - thrifted, socks and tshirt from my closet.
As you can see, I even had the furry backpack!Whipped it up out of a stuffed animal lamb, the poor thing! Whatever, a costume this good must require animal sacrifice.

So through all this stressing about whether or not I'd be able to find a plaid suit for my Cher costume, I decided to put together a backup look just incase it didn't work out. I wanted to be able to use my blonde hair to it's fullest... so who is someone blonde, recognizable, and someone I love and use every chance I get to dress like her? I think you know where I'm going with this:

I loved that this costume cost next to nothing. All I did was buy a very long (and cheap) wig and cut it in half, and attach the two chunks of wig to my real hair. I had a fake bang I bought on eBay way back when I had brown hair still, so I just took it and dyed it black (search wig dying on google, super easy technique!). I made the skirt in about 15 minutes out of an old dance costume, cut the crotch and feet out of a pair of tights as my top, and threw on my stipper boots and out the door I went! (Warning: major boobage below!)

And of course, I had to create a good set of falsies for the occasion.

There you have it, my Halloween looks. My favourite part of Halloween is seeing everyone's original costume ideas, and I want to hear about all of yours! Tell me what you were, I'd love to know!

HOT DAMN WOMAN! Love the double outfit changes, both were amazing. Personally loved your gaga costume, but Bryce and I both agree your Cher costume deserves an award too!

Magnet said...

Hooolay shit man. The lady gaga costume.. damn! I don't even like her but you look REALLY good, much better than gaga herself imo. The eye make up is incredible and turning tights into a top, such a good idea!! The Cher outfit looked really cute too.

Anyway, THANK YOU for the extremely nice comment on my blog. It's very flattering and exciting to learn that I have freaking awesome readers such as yourself :)

Your costumes were both amazing :O Gives me inspiration and motivation to dress up a lot more for next Halloween. I was Black Swan this year but really all I did was slather tons of makeup on, wear a tutu and bodysuit and called it a day.
