Friend Friday: HALLOWEEN!!

Halloween is almost here and I'm totally gearing up for it. This weekend the bf and I are hitting up Target to get some Halloween decorations for our party and then we are making some yummy Pumpkin Woopie Pies annnnnnddd carving a pumpkin! I love being festive for the Holidays. I'm still a kid at heart!


1. Do you have plans for Halloween? What will you dress up as this year?
Actually my boyfriend and I are throwing a party at our apartment the weekend after Halloween since we are busy visiting a friend the weekend before and Halloween Falls on a Monday this year.

I'm going for a Mardi Gras themed Halloween costume since I picked up a beautiful mask while I was down in New Orleans a few weeks ago. I figured I'd really never wear the mask again so why not do a Mardi Gras themed costume this year.

2. Where do you go for costume and makeup inspiration?
I find inspiration in all sorts of places. As I've gotten older I stopped buying costumes since I think it's a waste of money. I like now either making my own costumes or incorporating pieces that I can use over again. This year for my costume I found inspiration in my mask and found key pieces that work for a costume and real life. I guess really I find inspiration in real clothing that can be transformed into a costume.

For hair and make-up I think looking at pictures of examples of what costume I'm doing gives me some good ideas.

3. What was the best costume you've ever done?
Hmmmm....I dunno. Last year was pretty cool..my bf and I decided to be Sea Shepherd's. One year my mom made me a cheerleading costume which was pretty freaking sweet.

4. What's the most creative costume you've ever seen?
O gosh.....One year I saw this chick dressed up like Amy Whinehouse and she looked JUST LIKE HER.

5. No holds barred if you could dress up as anything, what would it be?
Hmmmmm another hard question. What would it be....I have no idea. I've been wanting to do an Audry Hepburn costume for awhile just haven't gotten around to it...but I just don't know.

What are your plans for Halloween? What are you dressing up as?
