Halloween just happened this past weekend and I enjoyed it so much I wore 2 different costumes. Although Halloween has past, I thought I’d share my costumes to give you some ideas for next year.
I went to a Halloween party the weekend before Halloween with my boyfriend. We love the show dexter and Will looks just like Dexter. Well, pretty close. So he was Dexter and I was one of his wrapped up victims.
For Will’s costume he bought a green three button long sleeved shirt like the one Dexter wears when he kills his victims and he also bought cargo parts. The shirt is from Target and the pants are from Walmart. The apron and rubber gloves are also from Walmart and his Mom had a fake knife from past Halloweens.
For my costume I bought a nude slip from Walmart and wrapped myself in saran wrap. I wrapped the top separate from the bottom and added a tissue drenched in red food coloring to make it look like a stab wound. Then I wrapped my body again. Make sure you spread your legs when wrapping yourself or else you won’t be able to walk.
Will and I also had a Halloween party of our own on November 1st. He was Dexter again since he didn’t feel like buying a new costume. But I wanted to be something different. So I decided to be a sugar skull. See my inspiration here.
What you need to make the top:
- Hot Glue Gun
- Lace (white and black rose)
- Fake Flowers
- Thick Paper & Scissors
- Ribbon of Studs
You need to trace a skeleton hand on the thick paper then cut it out to make it look like mine.
First, you are going to super glue the white lace onto the bottom of the bra. Then glue the studs around the top of the bra.
Then you are going to glue the black rose lace on top of the white lace. Then glue the skeleton hand you cut out onto the bottom left corner of the bra.
You can then start adding flowers to the corner of each side of the bra. I also cut a skull head out of the thick paper and colored it to make it a sugar skull and glued it to the center of the bra. Add a flower on top of the skull head.
Next, you put more white lace on the straps. You might want to sew this on because when you super glue it, it will come off when you go to but the bra top on.
Don’t forget to add flowers to the back of the bra. I super glued more black lace first, then just added a bunch more flowers.
After adding a lot of flowers to the front, you’re done! That’s it! The bra top is finished. Now for the headband…
All I did for the headband was super glue three big flowers to the top of it. The headband is a cheapie I bought at the dollar store. I took a petal from each flower and wrapped it around the headband to secure it even more so they wouldn’t fall off.
After completing the top and the headband, all you need is a white skater skirt and some white tights to complete the look. I got my skirt online and my sister gave me the tights.
For the makeup I used my e.l.f eyeliner pen to draw everything black. I used pink blush mixed with water for the pink around the eye and white eye shadow mixed with water for the white around the eye.
This is a pretty simple costume to make. It’s original and unique. I got lots of compliments on it throughout the night.
