So tomorrow is the big day! Halloween is finally upon us! So many costumes to choose from, so little time left! I have to admit that for a few years now, I’ve been putting my “costumes” together at the very last minute from whatever is hanging in my closet. Like last year, I wore a “ballerina” dress from H&M to the office and a purple Zara leotard, coupled with leggings and my mom’s ankle weights to be an aerobics instructor at a party, and the year before that I was Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in an LBD with some knit arm warmers (I know, I know…that was the only thing I had that resembled long gloves). I also wore a Hawaii-girl outfit for a few years in a row (grass skirt, tube top, flower in hair and some leis). So my point is, even if you aren’t really into Halloween, chances are you might be into dressing up! So dig into your closet, and put together something creative this weekend. There are so many easy costumes out there: Gossip Girl (tweed skirt, headband), Mia Wallace (white blouse, black bobbed wig), Jackie O…or Michelle O for that matter (classy LBD, and some shades), Carrie Bradshaw (tutu, curly hair, and sky-high heels), Ugly Betty (retainer and something vintage/colorful/ill-fitting)…Options are endless! Here’s a little peek into my Costumes of Halloween Past.
Ok, so this was worn on a regular office day. But you could do so many things with these lips: Angelina Jolie, Octomom, Alexander McQueen model?
Hmm, you could also walk around with a painting in front of your face, or wear a Dollar Store nose!
This is from last year’s Halloween at the office. Tessa did her scary make up herself! When she walked through the door in the morning, it was fantastically scary!
Jo-the pirate-ess! Arrrrrr!
Here is moi as a way-too-perky aerobics instructor, SunYee as the Scream guy, and le boyfriend as Chupacabra-the luchador, with a towel-cape.
Carlos as the Fat Ballerina, my Hawaii-girl outfit, and poor man’s Holly Golightly.
This was…my attempt to decorate the office for Halloween, using recycled materials. Mr. Hueso is sitting in my former boss’ chair!
Trying on masks at Wal Mart in Houston.
Al is that Betty-Bo-sheep-girl, I’m a Barbie, some guy is a Pimp (very original), and Cit is…a pink Skeleton.
So this is not a Halloween photo, but if you have 2 BFFs, and a handsome guy-friend, you could be Charlie’s Angels! Kick-ass posing – mandatory.
Mmmm, candy! Happy Halloween, everyone!!!
