Well, Halloween is over! Did you get a lot of trick-or treaters where you live? We had quite a few, and had a jolly time trying to scare them! I wore a scary mad scientist mask and my boyfriend was in a gorilla suit. I pretended like my pet gorilla had escaped and gone crazy stealing candy. It was hilarious watching the look on some of the kids’ faces!
For fun, I thought I’d share some photos of some of my Halloween costumes from the past few years.
Ahh, the old flapper costume. I bought the dress and accessories from Walmart, styled my hair (which was pretty easy since it’s already cut in a similar style that they wore in the 20s), and watched the Youtube video below several times to figure out the best way to do my makeup. This one was really fun!
Okay, now this one we thought was pretty clever. My sister and I dressed up as the girls from Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” music video. My brother-in-law was Robert, and he had the song playing from mini speakers in his pocket, and carried around a microphone while he lip synched the lyrics. We bought these goofy toy guitars and pretended to be playing them. The hardest part was keeping a straight face!
Here’s what I modeled the makeup after:
If you haven’t seen the video, watch it now! It’s hilarious.
Lastly, here’s my witch costume. I covered my face with concealer to even my skin tone and provide a sticky base for the green eyeshadow. I used a Revlon ColorStay green eyeshadow quad to create the green face, and used Urban Decay’s 24/7 lip liner in Gash for my lips. I topped it all off with a wig and hat, and a black dress. And of course I carried a broom!
