As anyone who reads my blog knows, I love Halloween. Every year I enjoy thinking of a costume, planning it out and making it myself. Over the past few weeks, I posted a bunch of Halloween-themed posts like how to make your own costumes (including a loofah, a tootsie roll and Squints), some last-minute costume ideas and much more. So now I’d like to share with you my costume from this year!
My boyfriend and I decided to go as The Tooth Fairy and a tooth. Although we both fought over who would be the fairy, I won. Just kidding- but wouldn’t a man in a tutu be funny? I went the DIY route once again and made our costumes. I had to buy the tutu, wings and tiara myself, since those would be hard to make. Then for the top, I sewed on a tooth (with white cotton fabric) and did the same to my wand (a wooden dowel with a mini tooth on top). For the tooth, I made two tooth-shaped pillows from the fabric and poly-fill. I attached them with black straps so it fit well over his shoulders. Voila!
We spent Halloween visiting our friend’s new apartment in Queens and catching up with them. Then we headed over to a house party in Manhattan, followed by a trip to a bar a few blocks down. We had a great time and got tons of compliments on our costumes. This Hallo-weekend proved that you can still dress up and have fun at any age.
What did you go for as Halloween and what did you end up doing to celebrate?
