Costume Idea #2 - Budget Costume *Sugar Skull*

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

K, Folks!

Here is my Costume Idea #2. As I said in my last post, and I do apologize, I meant to have more ideas than just 2 this year, but things happened. But, I’m still excited for this one because it is a Budget Costume Idea! All the supplies can be purchased from either the Dollar Store or Walmart for very little money – I would say for between $10 to $15! It’s a Day of the Dead Calavera or, more commonly known as, a Sugar Skull makeup tutorial!

It’s a become a very popular trend in North American countries and many others and since this is a late post, being it is only a day until Halloween, this is great for last minute Halloween plans! It’s also great because you can’t really make a mistake doing the makeup. If you’re a guy, then you can do without the scalloped edge eyes and head piece and it works for you, too. So, here’s what you’ll need to achieve this look:

Costume Idea #1 - Katy Perry "Dark Horse"

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Hi Beauties (and Handsome...ies)!

Well, I’m finally here with my first Halloween costume option for you all! It’s a Katy Perry look from her Dark Horse video - Wicked Egyptian Queen!! It was a pretty fun one to do so I hope you all like it!

Unfortunately I will only have 2 Halloween costume ideas for you this season. :( I had a couple of others planned but things didn’t go as planned for me this month. I started out strong but, while I was visiting home in New Brunswick, two unexpected things occurred: there was funeral I stayed a little longer to attend and I passed out, for unknown reasons, and tweaked my neck which left me in pain with a heating pad and Advil to help me through. The 6 hours I spent on a plane to get back were even less comfortable than usual. :/ Buuutt, anyway… 

So, this costume is what I will be sporting on Halloween. I don’t show this in the video, I will post some photos on facebook and Instagram on Halloween, but I plan to make the shoulder/bodice piece out of cardboard and some gold spray paint. I know this won’t help anyone who decides to use this tutorial since it’ll already be Halloween, but I suggest you try and do the same if you’re gonna wear this as well! It really just has to get the look of the costume across – imagine trying to create an accurate piece like that just for a Halloween costume! If you’re interested in this look then you probably know what I’m talking about from the video…if not, go watch Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” video! ;)
