This year I convinced my two buddies to dress up with me and do a Day of the Dead/Dia de los muertos theme. It went very well.
We each chose one colour to go with in our makeup and flower choice: I chose red (and roses), my buddy did pink, and buddy #2 did orange.
For my costume I just took a black lacy spaghetti strap dress I already had, took it in a little at the top (belonged to a chestier friend), added a zipper at the back,, then tucked the straps inside the dress, and sewed a lei from teh dollar store around the top to get the off the shoulder flower thing. I also got fishnetty wristlets from the dollar store and sewed red lace and fabric roses on em... and I sewed red lace onto one of my belts.
And on behalf of my buddy who does not Craftster, I wanted to show you the sweet little paper mache sugar skulls she made just for this event and her awesome-sauce hair
Thanks for looking! Happy Halloween everyone!
