BLAST FROM THE PAST: My Halloween costumes

I moved to America over three years ago, which means I got to dress up for Halloween just as many times. Today I wanted to reminisce about those fun times, and show you my old costumes. Hopefully, this post will inspire you if you're still looking for an outfit... Halloween is just 5 short days away!

My first Halloween was just two months after my move, so I went with something simple and classic. I think everybody has been a flapper at least once in their life before, haha. It's a great last minute outfit idea. All you need is a dress, hopefully with some nice embellishments and flares on the bottom. Then accessories: head piece. long gloves and the pipe for a cigarette. I also added a black boa. Have fun with your hair and makeup!

The following year, I decided it's time to go big or go home, literally! As you can see I was a Big Bird and had so much fun planning my costume. My talented handy friend helped me with some sewing and designing, I definitely couldn't do it without her! If you're interested, I've got a whole detailed tutorial for you HERE. Needless to say, my Big Bird costume was a hit, I was even featured on LaurenConrad.com for their Halloween edition (very proud moment for me!) 
You can check it out HERE. :)

Last year I wanted to go with something funny. I had this yellow leftover corset and was brainstorming ideas. I originally bought it for my Big Bird costume but decided to go with something else. The bright yellow corset turned out to be a perfect piece for my road worker/constructor costume. Slippery when wet was just a fun touch and it definitely got a lot of attention!



This year, I decided to wear all black... any ideas who I might be?

Please share me your costume ideas, I'd love to hear!

  3. I have no idea, a witch?! We don't really celebrate Halloween over here which is a shame because all these costumes have me wishing we did, or that I lived over there. BTW that Big Bird costume is EPIC!
