So other than extreme sleep deprivation my halloween weekend was pretty swell. I LOVE to dress up, and I always do my best to go all out. This year I wasn't really sure what to be. So I reflected back...
Last year I was Margot Tenenbaum:
Because I had the hair (Which happens to be the only redemption I feel to chopping off and bleaching my formerly long, beautiful red hair.) And of course because The Royal Tenenbaums is my ultimate favorite movie ever.
As I couldn't find a polo dress that was a decent price - I kind of didn't want to spend $100 on a costume! The dress and shirt were thrifted.
The year before that I was Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Another all-time favorite and oh-so appropriate choice for Halloween.
Again, a major factor in deciding to be Sally was having the perfect hair! (Oh how I miss my long hair! I will never ever cut it again!)
That, and she's the best. You know who else is the best? My mom, for making me my Sally dress!
So who was I this year? I was at a loss of who to be, until a friend suggested I be....
JESSIE! The yodeling cowgirl from Toy Story!
So took the suggestion, as her outfit is super cute and yep, i've got the hair for it!
And this year I made my costume myself! I am so proud. I even had to make the cowprint chaps! No fabric stores in vancouver carried cow print, so I bought black and white fabric and glued black blobs onto the white! I just safety pinned onto my jeans, as these are my favorite jeans.
I also safety pinned the yellow top as I did'nt want to throw a perfectly good work shirt out the window.
The hat is value village and the rest was all by me! I'm pretty stoked about it.
