Halloween is finally here! Costumes, decorations, parties, candy, and more…what more could you ask for?!
I personally have a blast with Halloween because dressing up is and always has been one of my favorite things. I also have the opportunity to put all of my competitive dance costumes from growing up to use again! I’ve dressed up as Ulla from The Producers, Poison Ivy from Batman, Daisy Duke, Princess Jasmine, you name it and I’ve most likely trick-or-treated or attended a party as it.
These photos were actually taken while I was on my trip from Indiana to California. My friend and I had stayed at The Blue Swallow Motel in Tucumcari, New Mexico and once we arrived, this place was too cute NOT to shoot at! Not only did it inspire me to play with different textures and styles in fashion, but it’s also inspiring one of my costumes for the weekend. Vintage glam rock, I call it. My customized Christian Benner tank paired perfectly with my mom’s vintage pleated skirt! Throw on a leather jacket, some Converse, and a smokey eye and voila! Who wants to purchase a new costume each year only to look like everyone else? The best costumes are the ones you create yourself by utilizing your resources (aka all of your parents old things!)
I’d love to hear what you all are going as! Leave me a comment below with your favorite costumes and/or current costume plans!
Until next time…stay golden!
