I stayed in this year for Halloween. Pretty lame, I know. I usually have plans months in advance and a costume whipped up before I know it. I didn't have the time nor cash to spend on making a costume this year, and I refuse to buy a pre-packaged one at a store. Last Halloween I spent $60 on one part of my costume which was a pair of black, high-waisted Topshop sequin hot-shorts. I told myself I'd wear them again since I spent so much money, but that hasn't exactly happened. Tiny sequin shorts on Halloween? Yes. Tiny sequin shorts on a regular old afternoon? Eh, not so much.
Bored and on probably my fifth reese's peanut butter cup by 1pm this lovely holiday afternoon, I decided I can't go this Halloween without dressing up at least a little bit..
The first thing I thought was ears. That's easy. I can throw them on and instantly have a costume. I had a cat ear/headband thing but I wasn't feeling it.
Five minutes later, after gathering some tin foil, cardboard and elmer's glue, I let my creative thoughts run wild and bam, I had bunny ears.
They're Louis-Vuitton-Fall-2009-collection-esque; ridiculous and oversized yet so completely awesome.
False eyelashes, crazy whiskers and too many accessories later, I had my costume.
I was called a cat a few times by my dad and a random trick-or-treater.
I can see where they could be confused but I think the giant, tin foil BUNNY ears on top of my head are a pretty big clue.
Welcome to my style blog. I love clothes: expensive, cheap, second-hand, with stripes, without stripes, buckles, bows, anything that sparkles, minimal, over-the-top, and nothing ordinary. Style is art. Live it. Breathe it. Wear it.
