i hope that you all had a fabulous halloween! we had a wonderful time – we hung out with family (since they get way more trick-or-treaters than our little street gets), passed out candy, checked out lots of costumes, roasted marshmallows + hot dogs over a fire + ate tons of halloween candy.
if you follow me on facebook, you may have seen that, despite two costume parties to attend on saturday, neither my husband nor i had come up with a costume. since i didn’t have a lot of time to plan, + didn’t want to spend much, i knew i had to get creative fast. i put on my thinking cap, ran to the thrift store, + a few minutes later, had my costume in hand. i watched a couple tutorials on how to do a 40s-era hairdo, put on my red lipstick, + was ready to go! and the result?
rosie the riveter! + the best part? the entire costume cost less than $10. i got the shirt from our local thrift store for a whopping $4, sewed the headband from another thrift store shirt that cost a mere $2 + wore navy pants that i already owned. my husband made me a ‘rosie’ nametag + also photographed + mocked up the above picture. isn’t he crafty? fun fact: today’s his birthday!
i was super pleased with how the costume turned out + we had a fantastic time at our costume parties. i’d love to hear how you celebrated halloween, + what, if anything, you dressed up as!
