It’s that time of the year again, when everything is jolly and fun…and no, I am not talking about Christmas! It’s time to put on your best DIY costume (forget about all that store bought crap!) and celebrate Halloween, my favourite holiday of them all.
This year, I was in charge of confecting not 1, not 2 but 8 Halloween costumes. Let’s just say that with my free schedule I was begging for something fun to do apart from sending resumes, which is what my live has consisted of for the last few weeks. My mission: create two sets of costumes, one for a millennium party where we decided to go as the Spice Girls and one for a simple Halloween party where we went as the Riverdale gang otherwise known as Archie and friends.
It was with a long list of necessities that I started my thrift store hunt. Surprisingly, the item I thought would be the hardest to find was the first one I crossed off my list. Orange pants are not an everyday occurrence so I couldn’t believe my luck when I stumbled across a pair of skinny fit Jean-Paul Gaultier never worn orange pants for a mere 5.99$! Jackpot! After that, everything else was a piece of cake!
The final touch to our costumes was the comic strip bubbles which were the best conversation starter ever! Let’s just say a hand full of profanities were written on those tiny boards (might just be why I had to photoshop the first pic ;))
Hope you have an amazing Halloween night.
Now, back to eating candy!
