Halloween pics, as promised.

In my last post, I shared some budget-friendly items I’d acquired for my upcoming Halloween costume. The concept was punk rocker/goth girl/biker chick. I went to an early Halloween party last night, so here’s how the look turned out:

I was so happy with the make up and costume! I spent a couple of bucks on fake tats and mesh gloves from Party City, and picked up the faux nose ring from Claire’s for less than 10 bucks. Oh, and this YouTube makeup tutorial was a big inspiration!

What’s your plan for Halloween? Got a thrifty DIY costume in the works? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!  🙂

Halloween haul.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. As a kid, I always went all out. Yet as an adult, I’ve found that I’ve become abysmally lazy when it comes to getting my act together each October. But this year is going to be different. This year, I’m going to rock it. Literally. I’ve got a party coming up soon, and I’ve decided to go as a punk rocker!

My friend and awesome hair stylist Paris loaned me some great wardrobe pieces for the costume…

…and I’ve just returned from a very successful trip to CVS, where I loaded up on some Halloween make up necessities (black and red eye makeup, false lashes, etc.), as well as some staple beauty items. Oh, and look at the savings!

I saved almost $20! And yes, I bought a bracelet from the drugstore.

I’ll head to Party City later this week to get some temporary tattoos and a fake nose ring. I seriously can’t wait to put it all together. I’ve been watching punk rock makeup tutorials on YouTube, and I’m just getting really psyched!

Here’s to a budget-friendly Halloween! 🙂
