COSTUME UP

Hello again costume lovers.

Welcome to the third day of my costume extravaganza!!

Here are our costumes from last year.

Danny & Sandy

The badass version – it’s just more fun! (not to mention easier).

“I got chills, they’re multiplyin’, and I’m loosin’ control.”

Again, we went for simplicity.

For Danny, he wore a tight plain black Tee from Walmart, and his Dad’s vintage black denim jeans and leather jacket.  We slicked his hair back with the greasiest gel we could find.

“Look at me, I’m Sandra-Dee, lousey with virginity.”

For Sandy, I wore a black off the shoulder Tee I already owned, just cut up slightly to make it further off the shoulder, liquid black leggings, a friends black belt, blonde curly wig from V-V, and vintage inspired polka-dot heals also from V-V.

“You’re the one that I want! O00h-o00h-oooh, honey!”

Classic hollywood film meets Halloween.  Fun costumes that kept me singing and dancing all night.

Look back tomorrow for this year’s costumes… I can’t wait to show you!

DRESS-UP SOME MORE

As a continuation from yesterday, please enjoy our 2011 Halloween costumes!  Once again, we have to thank Value Village, or as I like to call it, the V-V Boutique, for most of the costume pieces.

Andy Warhol & Edie Sedgewick

Around this time last year, I became obsessed with the movie Factory Girl.

If people hadn’t seen the movie, they weren’t really sure what we were.  I think we made quite a cute pair anyway!

“Wasting money puts me in a real party mood.”

Isn’t he a cute blonde?

Andy Warhol is basic: striped high collar shirt, and plain khaki pants, if you’re blonde already, great.  If not, the blonde wig was only $10 from the V-V Boutique.  Finishing touch: sunglasses, found lying around the apartment.

“You’re the boss, applesauce.”

Edie Sedgwick is alllllll about the make-up.  A plain slightly oversized striped shirt, dance tights, and black 60s style heals.  I also found a great vintage coat that went to the floor with leopard print accents – perfect for bar hopping on a cold Hallows eve.  Johnny actually made my earings from an old necklace by bending the wires together.  I was also lucky because my hair cut happened to match hers… a wig works too.

Groovy.

“It takes a lot of work to figure out how to look so good.”

Again, pretty original costumes that are SO easy to put together.

Happy Halloweening 🙂

On a side note:

If you happen to be in Norfolk County this weekend, come out to Port Dover at The Brig.

From 9-10pm come see the debut performance of my new band, Wild Vines!

Opening for The Allnighters and Folk Heroes from Space.

It’s going to be a wild costume party – hope to see you there!!!
