D.I.Y. Halloween

Good Morning Everyone!

Hope you all had a fun and festive weekend.

This Halloween I was pretty amazed of how everything ran smoothly. I usually do my personal projects last minute so lets just say that I didn’t finish up my mask til a hour before we had to leave the house. But it came out pretty amazing.

On Friday for work I dressed up as Wednesday Adams. It was fairly simple I just got a black dress with sleeves, black tights and some black booties. I did my make up pretty simple with just black lipstick. As for my hair, I parted it straight down and French braided it. Since I didn’t have any white collared shirt I cut out pieces of paper and taped it to my dress.


American Apparel decided to throw their employees a Halloween Party. So I worked with HR to help decorate the break room and pass out goodies to the employees. They even had a costume contest where the top 3 winners got a Target gift card.


  
  
  
Now as for Halloween, I dressed up as Catwoman. This costume took a lot of hours of researching to find something that catwoman would actually wear. I ended up finding a lot of ideas with American Apparel clothing and if it weren’t for my discount I don’t know if I would have been able to afford it. I bought the Cotton Spandex Micro-Mesh Gloria-V Bodysuit and their Lame Shiny Legging.

I added in my black belt and a black cami so it wouldn’t be too revealing. Now for the mask I went to Michael’s and bought everything I needed from there. I got two black felt fabric (.39 each), white puffy paint (3.00) and some cool black ribbon (1.25). After buying my supplies I used a template to cut out the shape. Once I cut it out I realized it was too long and my nose wasn’t cut right. So with some experiments with staples I customized it to my face and glue gunned it together.


  

I had a lot of fun getting ready for that day. If you are interested in making the mask the link to the template below.
