So today is Halloween! My favorite holiday by far and this year was great because I got to chill with my fellow dope & broke chica K. Our choices in costume greatly reflect our sense of selves , our own quirky personalities and because we’re broke we had to pull it all off with some creativity and budget friendly supplies.
I was Edgar Allan Poe my costume consisted mainly of some drastic eye make-up , an ( annoyingly bothersome ) adhesive back mustache , and clearance wig & fake raven ( both from Michaels )
Walking around the soho/village area was a blast because while not clearly obvious watching people put together who I was and smiling when they figured it out made me happy (in my special happy place!)
Kristy’s look was equally awesome , tho more time consuming so props to her. She was Madonna ~ala like a virgin~ her costume involved a lot of tulle which called for repeated trips to our local fabric shop but at .99 cents a yard it hardly broke the bank , with some improving and a little elastic from Michaels I helped her and together we pulled out a no sew tutu. She finished this off with a tulle bow she easily tied her self , some jewelry pieces ( pearls, chains, cross emblem ) from Michaels , lacey gloves from Rickys and lacey top. Some cheeky simply makeup and voila ! Madonna!
As I mentioned we walked around the madness that is
downtown , people watching and loving the creativity. I mean it’s Halloween go apeshit , right? It was a great night all around . Oh! and we ate some super delish grub from IHOP! because , why not?
well, I’m off for now. stay tuned we’ll try and update more frequently
