DIY: LION COSTUME

 
 

WELL GUYS... another year has gone and it is time to dress up again!! Woo Hoo!

This year I decided to go to two parties which of course meant two totally different costumes. I decided to stick with the safari animal theme from last year and decided to be a lion. It has been my favorite make up to date! And bonus-- I got an entire group to dress up Circus themed with me!! Haha I seriously have rad friends.

For my body suit and tail I went to Joann's and found some faux fur fabric and a hidden zipper to match that felt like a lion would. For the bushy tail I used brown yarn which I brushed out to make it more hair like.  Speaking of hair, for that I gave myself a golden ombre(I know I'm crazy for doing it myself and a bit extreme for changing my hair just for a costume) and put my hair in corn rows for a week to get the texture I would need.

Once again I ran into the same problem as last year trying to find a good tutorial on lion face make up so I printed out a picture of the actual animal and went to work. 

For make up I used only the finest: BEN NYE!! Seriously guys, believe me when I say this is the only way to go when putting this kind of make up on. Make sure you apply dermashield before to help with the application process go on smoothly and it totally helps with breakouts! Don't forget to use lots--and I mean lots of translucent powder with a puffer until your make up doesn't feel wet or sticky. Then lightly mist with setting spray and you'll be worry free for the night! If you need to buy stage make up and don't have a store close to you check this site out!

This year I also finally invested in colored contacts so it would look more real. I'm pleased to say I liked this even BETTER than my giraffe costume!

Maybe I should keep up with the trend and be a safari animal every year!

Happy Halloween!!

DIY: QUICK AND EASY SKELETON COSTUME

Well guys, you can't get more Halloween than being a skeleton! I convinced all my roommates (don't ask me how) and then some to all dress up as skeletons and parade down the Hollywood Halloween Carnival and boy was it fun!

For make up I used only the finest: BEN NYE!! Seriously guys, believe me when I say this is the only way to go when putting this kind of make up on. Make sure you apply dermashield before to help with the application process go on smoothly and it totally helps with breakouts! Don't forget to use lots--and I mean lots of translucent powder with a puffer until your make up doesn't feel wet or sticky. Then lightly mist with setting spray and you'll be worry free for the night! If you need to buy stage make up and don't have a store close to you check this site out!

This is one of the easiest costumes I've done and required NO sewing! Just lots of face make up and some black clothes. It was such a blast doing this for two reasons, we all matched (and I love matching) and no one could tell who we were! Also the fact there were a bunch of us made it really fun!

DIY: GIRAFFE COSTUME

By now you all know Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I mean, who doesn't love dressing up!?  This past year I decided to be my favorite animal.... you guessed it! A GIRAFFE (insert heart emoji eyes here)

I bought my fabric at Joann's-- naturally (you can get here) and used some old jeans and a t-shirt as my pattern. Make sure you also get a zipper because you will definitely be needing one for tight pants!

For make up I used only the finest: BEN NYE!! Seriously guys, believe me when I say this is the only way to go when putting this kind of make up on. Make sure you apply dermashield before to help with the application process go on smoothly and it totally helps with breakouts! Don't forget to use lots--and I mean lots of translucent powder with a puffer until your make up doesn't feel wet or sticky. Then lightly mist with setting spray and you'll be worry free for the night! If you need to buy stage make up and don't have a store close to you check this site out!

Next was the make up. Believe it or not there aren't too many tutorials on giraffe make up so I had to wing it, but looking at a picture of a giraffe sure helped! My costume was a hit and I made sure to bring a bag of spinach with me to the party to chomp on all night!

Happy Halloween!!
