SIX QUICK HALLOWEEN COSTUMES FOR GIRLS ON THE GO

Friday, October 12, 2012


FRIDA KAHLO
How easy would this be? Skip your monthly wax and grow out that uni, or create your own using an eyebrow pencil. Bust out that summery flower headpiece one last time, and then accessorize with big, bold baubles and bright blush! 




CARRIE BRADSHAW 
Oh, the many stages of Carrie. You can be pre-Mr. Big Carrie, Wild and free Carrie, or Married Carrie! How about Aidan Carrie. That Carrie was my favorite Carrie. This whole Paragraph now contains eight 'Carries'. Those circa 1990's Minolos that you've been waiting for an excuse to actually wear - well this is it. Don't forget that signature gold "Carrie" name tag necklace. NINE! 




SUGAR SKULL
If your Hallo-week has you floating around to twenty different parties, "makeup costumes" are the perfect way to go. It doesn't require much to put together or a lot of $$ - it only requires you to have patience & a steady hand.  You can get a few ideas for designs from Google Images or check out Pinterest



BJORK // SWAN DRESS 
So. Much. Fun. I found an easy / cute / creative DIY over at Syl and Sam of this exact dress. If you've got some time to spare before Halloween and a sewing machine, give this costume a whirl. 



ZOMBIE / SKELETON GIRL
You can get a pretty good idea of what you need / how to create this look with these two easy to follow instructional videos via Youtube: HERE & HERE. I'll be in NYC for Halloween and need to save room in my suitcase for what really matters. Clothes. 
This is also another cheapie costume - which leaves me $$ to spend on MORE clothes. 




MEDUSA 
Sultry and sensational. I love the unlimited possibilities in this costume. Be as creative or minimal with the idea as you want! If you're feeling lazy, you can always just glue some snakes to a headband, right? Or how about this amazing snake skin textured lip tutorial?
