I LOVE Halloween! And while I am sitting here waiting for the kiddos to come ring my door bell and shout “trick or treat,” I thought I’d tell you about my Halloweekend this year.
For the past four years, I knew exactly what I wanted to be for Halloween months in advance.
- In 2008, I was Amy Winehouse. (This is some oddly exposed photo of me I found on my computer. Weird, I know.)
- In 2009, I was Lady Gaga.
- In 2010, I was Hit Girl from the movie Kick A$$.
- In 2011, I was Black Swan.
So clearly, I am drawn to female singers and movie characters. But this year, I had no epiphany months before Halloween.
Eventually, I decided to go the female singer route, and dress as:
My costume started with this $2 men’s t-shirt I bought at Salvation Army.
Then I bought a few accessories from Ragstock.
Completed with a few things from my closet, and a blonde wig, this costume came together quite easily.
I used the instructions in this video on YouTube to transform my XL men’s t-shirt into this fitted, cut-up tee (hint: all you need are scissors) and voila, here is my costume! I also slashed up the back of the shirt with scissors and cut a low back neckline.
How’d I do!? Did I achieve Ke$ha’s look?
My main critique of myself is that I needed far more glitter. I was wearing LOTS of glitter around my eyes (literally my old body glitter from 6th grade – no joke), but more would have been a good call.
Go, go, go, go insane, go insane, throw some glitter, make it rain.
Also, brushing my teeth with a bottle of Jack might have helped me achieve the look. But the night would have ended in an ugly way, I do think.
As always, Five Cent Femme and I tore up the dance floor at The Bang! this month. She dressed as pregnant Snooki this year! Hiiiilarious, I know!
You know we’re superstars. We R Who We R.
A breather in the alley outside the 8 Ball was required. So hot inside.
Enough Ke$ha lyrics for you.
I’m not sure how I feel about the fact that Ke$ha claims not only the #1 spot in my “25 Most Played iTunes Songs” playlist, but also #2. :: blushes ::
Shoot, it’s already 7:40, and we’ve only had 15 trick-or-treaters. Someone needs to come take this candy off my hands.
Now time to start thinking about next Halloween!
