{DYI} a pretty winter costume

pretty pictures...


In all fairness, I didn't actually take these pictures {as I'm in all of them!} But they sure are pretty, nonetheless. Of course, this last weekend was Halloween, and my friends and I celebrated in style on State Street in Madison, WI. We were dressed as the four seasons {I was obviously Winter}, and our costumes were a major hit! The 3 or so hours of getting ready was definitely worth it.

Here's a little bit about my DIY costume {incase I've inspired some Snow Queen costumes for next year - or "Frigid Bitch" costumes; A.K.A. my so-uncharacteristic nickname for the evening}...

I found the dress, pretty much as is, at a local thrift store for 5 dollars. I just added the fur trim, some tinsel {underneath the outer mesh layer} and some snowflake holiday ornaments - all with hot glue. There was also a snowflake decorated crown, that was later nixed as it didn't quite fit the "bitch" persona.

The ice makeup I found at Goodwill, in a kit. About 5 dollars.

For the hair, I had a friend slab small {about quarter inch} sections of my hair with gel. She then twisted the sections. Another friend took a blow dryer and hairspray to each small section as they were being twisted. My hair was then sprayed with white and glitter hairspray {found at Walmart for about 1 dollar each}. And then we added more glitter... of course.

There you have it. Winter in a nutshell. I hope you had as much fun this Halloween as we did.
