Halloween Costume Ideas

Hey guys! Sorry my posting has been rather sporadic lately, it's been due in part to my social life temporarily becoming more interesting and light being in short supply around these parts. I promise i'll try to get my butt in gear and do more outfit posts. I have at least 4 to post! Anyway since Halloween is just around the corner, I figured i'd do a few Halloween costume idea posts for you and yours.

1. Betty Boop. Somebody once told I looked like Betty Boop, I'm still not sure if that's a compliment or not. I never really understood Betty, to be honest, but she sure is an easy costume! All you need for this costume is a strapless red dress, Gold accessories (especially gold hoop earrings), black pumps and a garter. Do your make up super sexy, pop on a Betty wig, and Bam! you're Betty Boop, girl.

2. Honey Boo Boo. I've never been good at pop culture costumes, for some reason my extensive knowledge of pop culture seems to vacate my brain every year when trying to come up with a costume. But with the crazy redneck fun of Honey Boo Boo it's hard not to notice this gold mine of a Halloween costume. Grab a pink prom dress from the thrift store ( cut hem as needed), grab yourself a blonde curly wig, pink bow, frilly socks, white flats and your ever important go-go juice and take the night by storm, honey boo boo chile.

3. River Song.  This one's for the nerds, y'all. As you know i've recently become sucked in to the tardis and am huge Doctor Who fan now. While trying to think of a good costume that would work with curly hair suddenly I had it, River Song!! River is Amy and Rory's daughter (spoilers!) , she's the doctors wife (I think),  an archeologist (sweetie), kinda crazy  and amazing! She's definitely one of my favorite characters on the show.  One of my favorite River outfits is the one below, so i decided to go with that one, but there are plenty of other options to choose from if you want to be Melody Pond for all hallows eve.

4. Psy. Who doesn't love Psy? I mean you have to be dead if you hear that song and don't smile a little. Psy is also a pretty easy and fun costume. If you're like me and you already have black pants and white button down all you need is a bow tie, sunglasses, blue blazer and oxfords. There are a ton of great costume ideas from that video so if Psy isn't you cup of tea you can always be random guy in yellow suit, pelvic thrusting cowboy or one of his many backup dancers. Sexy Lady!

Dress/ Apron: Garage Sale  Blood on Dress: Ragstock Makeup: thrift Sweater: my grandma

          Last saturday I participated in the 8th Zombie Pub Crawl. It was definitely an experience. The shuttle experience was less than stellar but it was pretty  fun. I don't know if i'd go again unless I had a friend that really wanted to go, but I'm glad I went. I didn't take many pictures there (just the one) and was running late to meet my friend so I didn't end up taking outfit photos. So these myspaceian bathroom mirror pics of me looking like hot mess housewife zombie will have to do for now. I promise at the beginning of the night my makeup was better and I had an extra "wound" on my neck. I was a 50's style zombie housewife, if you were wondering.
