Poop, I'm disappointed that Halloween weekend has finally come to an end! My favorite part about this "holiday" is dressing up and making my own costumes. Not being a "slutty" version of something (i.e. Nun? or Clown?) Anyways...
I really wanted to be Hello Kitty since she is a classic cutesy kitty that everyone adores!
I started off by hitting the thrift stores to find a cute red dress I could cut up. I found a perfect knee length red dress that had a neckline up to my collar bone for $4.99! I then decided I need circle lenses to really give my make up a pop so I purchased XCK-105 for $19 (free shipping) from a wonderful US-based circle lens supplier (Vivid-Beauty) who got it to me 4 days after purchase!
So I had to purchase additional accessories:
White Fur Material (ears): $1.25
Red Silk Material (bow):$1.20
Morbid White Face Powder: $7.99
I Love My Face light foundation: $3
Yellow Face Paint (nose): $3
Long Lashes: $4
Ankle Socks: $2.99
Large White Buttons: $1.19 (x2)
Fixing My Chewed Up Mary Jane Shoes: $7
So I guess it wasn't the "cheapest" costume ever. But DAMN it was fun to make and wear! I even wore it out shopping and dinner all weekend because I enjoyed it so much haha! I think my favorite part was little girls coming up to me and telling me I was pretty and they loved my costume. The best compliments are ALWAYS from kids! ^^
I'll update this blog later with the Before & After pictures of the dress. Also, I will post the patterns I used to make the ears and the bow so you guys can make your own Hello Kitty looks. I mean a girl always needs more "unnecessary" Hello Kitty stuff right??
This is how my costume turned out :
What were you guys for Halloween?? I hope everyone had a fun and safe weekend!
