My friend Whitney and I decided to dress up for Halloween this year. This is the first time in a very long time that we both put effort into making Halloween costumes. Once we both came up with creative DIY ideas we were quite excited to make our costumes and do our makeup. Getting ready is half the fun!
I dressed up as a doll – a classy doll with a purple yarn wig and pearl necklaces. There was definitely nothing raggedy about my doll costume.
The cutesy doll makeup and yarn wig are definitely the key elements that make this costume convincing (as convincing as a 5’6” walking, talking doll can be). The wig tutorial from A Beautiful Mess is great, the instructions are super simple and easy to follow. I am pleasantly surprised with how well everything turned out!
Whitney and I may have gone a little overboard with our Halloween photoshoot. We had so much fun!
Whitney made a very impressive Black Swan. Her makeup looked ah-mazing. There are lots of Black Swan makeup tutorials in the blogosphere this year. Whitney followed this video tutorial by Michelle Phan (found via Love & Lace). Stephanie from Love & Lace also made an awesome Black Swan costume that is definitely worth checking out.
I think we look fantastic. DIY Halloween costume success!
ps – what are you dressing up as for Halloween this year?
