You know what, we were actually planning on becoming SailorMoons. LOL. My friend was going to have her mom make us the costumes, but we didn't really have time to coordinate everything. That would have been cool though if the plan had pulled through. There's always next year!
For now, the only costume I have is my Dorothy one. My mom actually sewed it for me three years ago because I couldn't find a costume that fits me properly. Everything was so friggin big cuz I'm such a stick. My mom has some sewing skills. She also actually made all three of my gowns for the proms that I went to in high school. Pretty sweet! She used to sew for a hobby when she was younger, and had a kick at making my dresses when I was a toddler.
Here are the things I used for this look. I tried to exagerrate everything on my face. We all know that Dorothy was a small town girl from Kansas, Texas who lived in the farm, so obviously she didn't wear this much makeup, and like always, I pretty much just used whatever I have on my stash.
Everyday Minerals Medium Beige Semi-Matte
MAC True Romantic Blush
MAC Light Flush MSF
NYX Rea l/s
NYX Snow White l/s
NYX Hebe l/s
Paul & Joe 07 lipgloss
And for the look... I tried to curl my hair again. Lately, the curler has been my best friend. Luckily, I didn't burn myself this time. The curls would've showed up a lot nicer if my hair was longer. I used the falsies to dramatize my eyes a bit more and make it pop. Oh, and the blouse was from H&M.
And this was Dorothy when she found out she won't be going home anytime soon.
Here are some pictures from the Halloween my costume made it's first debut lol. The room where my full sized mirror is currently stash in a room where there's a whole lot of mess (we just moved). But this is pretty much how my costume looked like. I'm actually not wearing the tulle underneath the skirt to make the dress a bit poofy here. As you can probably tell, I'm not a big makeup wearer yet when this picture was shot. I think I'm going to put sequins on my red shoesies this time.
And here's another costume that my mom did for my brother. The hat was from Downtown Disney. If you don't know who this character is... it's the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland. Look he even had a bunny to match his outfit. Yep, my mother dearest made the vest, coat, and even the tie. I've blocked my brother's face to protect his identity LOL.
And here are my friends who dressed as Alvin and the Chimpmunks. This was way before movie even came out. They were a hit at all the parties we went to.
I can only imagine how many girls are going to show up as school girls. I think that's the one costume that's overrated and needs to go away and retire already. Ok, I did dress up as one a long, long time ago, and I'm not even going to deny that. But let's change it up people! I understand that it's probably the easiest costume to throw to together, but let's be a bit more creative!
Show me your Halloween costume!
