Jessica Rabbit Halloween Costume

Jessica Rabbit has such a glamorous look to her and my everyday makeup skills just wouldn’t cut it. I enlisted my friend Britney to use her magic again (she created Jack Skellington, Ursula and my looks for DragonCon last year – Pennywise and The Raven) and I knew that certain costumes would need her skills. Since Jessica Rabbit is an animated…

The Birds Halloween Costume

Alfred Hitchcock is the original master of horror. His films have a way of sticking with you, due largely in part to the suspense. For those who haven’t seen the movie, The Birds focuses on a series of sudden and unexplained violent bird attacks on people. The bagged costume had some not so good reviews, mostly how the jacket was cheap and…

Elvira Halloween Costume

Elvira was a no-brainer costume for me. She is one of those iconic characters that you recognize even if you haven’t seen any of her films. Her costume is also SO simple because there are only 3 components: the wig, dress and dagger. I was able to use this dress for 3 costumes this month (Elvira, Morticia and Maleficent) so it’s…

Peggy Bundy Halloween Costume

“Let’s clear up a few misconceptions. There are two things Peggy Bundy doesn’t do. Number 1: cook, clean, sew, vacuum, iron, and parent. and number 2: exercise.” Peg Bundy is a 2020 mood, amiright? This was one of the easiest costumes to assemble and honestly looks so much better than the bagged ones being sold. What woman doesn’t have a pair…
