Hooray! It’s Halloween time again! So many fun parties, outings, and what not to be had…it can be overwhelming, right? Good news for you, you probably have a costume in your closet already, but you don’t realize it. I rarely purchase my costumes. Instead, I shop my closet and just see what happens. For this post, I did no prior planning. I allotted myself just 10 minutes per costume. I have to say, it was a lot of fun. Although, I think t would have been more fun with a friend to play dress up with. For me, costumes have always started with make-up; I find it inspiring. So that is what I did here, too. Ready? Okey dokey, let’s go!
I happen to have a small collection of costume wigs and this is my favorite one. I wore it last year for my Homage to Wonderland Costume, too. For the sake of time, I think a wig can come in really handy. Originally, I named this “80s Prom”, but my hubby said it looked more like a fat Barbie, so I decided to run with it. I have to admit, due to my tattoos, I think this could also be a “porn star” costume too…not sure how I feel about that.
Date Night Zombie
This one was probably my favorite. One of the cool things is that you could be any kind of zombie you want, right? I went for Date Night Zombie for the sake of simplicity, but you could do anything! Last year, I made my hubby a “Zombie on Vacation” (complete with Hawaiian shirt and straw hat). All together, this took 5 minutes.
This is literally a piece of fabric wrapped around me over a black swim suit. For the sake of time (8 minutes on this one), I didn’t pin it, but I advise you to. The “pelt” is a vintage stole. I opted for minimal make-up, just some bronzer and a touch of lipstick. Simple, right?
You may notice, I didn’t fill in my brows, use mascara, or eyeliner. That was a choice I made for speed. Of course, have you the time, you could enhance these ideas. In a pinch, however, you can seriously be out the door in less than 15 minutes!
