Happy Halloween everyone! I can’t wait to share this years costume with you all, this year it took me forever to come up with an idea. I would find an idea that I loved, then I either couldn’t find the different pieces for it or I didn’t like it anymore. I decided to go to our local party/Halloween store to look for ideas. I tried on serval different costumes, then I found mine in the corner of the store and immediately loved it.
I am a 1950’s pin up girl! I have always loved the 1950’s dresses and especially the hairstyles, so it was really fun putting together this costume. I will link all of the different pieces at the end of this post.
This hairstyle was super fun and challenging to do. I also recreated it for school and just did one victory roll and loved how that looks as well. You can’t go wrong with some simple black heels! I was short on time and couldn’t find any of accessories for my costume, but I did find these adorable earnings, which I thought really completed the outfit! (But I have to admit they were a little heavy)
Here is a close up of my dress, I also added a red cardigan to match my other red accessories. For my headband, I just went to the fabric store and got some red fabric and tied it in a knot. For my makeup I did classic winged liner, with a little brown shadow in the crease. I did a little contouring and added some blush. Lastly I added a pop of colour with some red lipstick, and I drew on a fake mole with eyeliner to pull it all together.
