Hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween weekend! This holiday always makes me a bit nostalgic for my childhood – my friends and I always made a big deal out of dressing up and trick-or-treating. As an adult, my husband and I DREAD the “mandatory costume” parties… But this year I had a flash of inspiration and was SUPER excited about my costume.
Say hello to… Snooki! (For those of you who don’t know what she looks like, here’s a pic) I already owned everything except for the sunglasses, which I purchased for $10. My hair was my Pièce de résistance… there was no bump-it or extensions, just a lot of teasing and hairspray! The dress is actually knee length, but I used some safety pins and temporarily took it up at the waist, which was then disguised by the chunky belt. Nor did I own any big silver hoop earrings (my ears are super sensitive so I can’t wear cheap-o fun earrings from Claire’s or Forever21), so I used about 20 silver twist-ties and formed them into two large hoops, and then inserted them into my existing tiny hoop earrings. Voila! (Too bad I’ve never seen a single episode of Jersey Shore, haha)
Here’s my and the husband, Snooki & Charlie Brown! <3 I created the stripes on his shirt with some carefully applied electrical tape.
How was your Halloween?! Did you dress up?
