Halloween Update: A Change of Plans

So everyone, I am a little disappointed to say that my Marie Antoinette costume is not a go this year. There has been so much piling up on me between things in my personal life, work, and school, that I have been unable to find the time to get the rest of my costume together. I bit off more than I could chew this year, but I know for next time to plan better. Perhaps you'll see the Queen next year...

Although I will not be doing Marie Antoinette, I do have something planned that I can easily do with what I have! I will be using my red dress, a hat, roses, black lace and accessories, and of course some creative make-up, to throw together a Día de los Muertos costume. I think it might even be a better option this year, as I plan on visiting my aunt's house who has decorated her home in a  "Dead Hat Society" theme this year. If you don't remember the aunt to whom I am referring, here is the link to my post about her house. I will take pictures! It's really spectacular, the decorating they do. People come from miles around to see her house each year.

Just so you can get an idea, here are a couple of photos I'm looking to for inspiration:

  1. Marie Antoinette is an ambitious costume, for sure! But I'm sure the DOTD outfit will be just as nice. :o)

    I'll be looking forward to seeing the infamous aunt's Hallowe'en decorations! Our house won't be decorated this year - everything's buried miles deep in boxes. But I did buy special Hallowe'en candy and toys, which will hopefully make up for the lack of holiday spirit and as a sort of a thank-you for those stalwart six who have made an effort to walk down that spooky alleyway every year. I'm gonna miss those little guys! :o)

    1. Well, you're in the midst of a big move, so I can understand the decorations being buried in boxes! Regardless, I hope you have a wonderfully spooky holiday.

  2. I look forward to seeing your Marie Antoinette costume one day - I thought it was an awesome idea! However, I know it is with time... sometimes you just have to change your plans. Your day of the dead costume sounds just as cool. I can't wait to see pictures. :-)

  3. Marie Antoinette sounds very ambitious indeed, but it would be a very great costume :3 Dia de los muertos sounds just as awesome though ^^ I'd be no good doing that kind of make-up x'D

    1. The make-up is a little ambitious too, so wish me luck!

  4. Sounds like your Dia de los Muertos will be fun as well, although I do hope to see Miss Antoinette in the future! Didn't know if you'd seen this video, it might give you some makeup tips to perfect the candy skull look (despite the slightly cheesy factor of the narrator's voice), you could obviously use whatever color pallet you want. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HE2hq41B94
