Costume Craze

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and it's quickly approaching! But I am so over bland off the rack costumes, they're uncomfortable, over-priced and unoriginal! So I like to create fashionable diy costumes made from wearable pieces you may already have in your closet! Today's post features a fierce female feline hero and a elegantly evil super villain. 
My Halloween fixation started earlier then I anticipated this year when I received my first costume request: Poison Ivy. I was Poison Ivy in high school one year, I paired an emerald velvet leotard and matching skirt from a dance costume with red fishnets and red pumps. I finished the look with red lipstick and pining fake foliage to my dress.
So incase you feel like going green this halloween, here are five ways to get the look! I suggest adding fake foliage or even some real leafs to your outfit, by pinning a few in your hair, wearing some as a broach or attaching a few sporadically on your outfit.   

masks: one // two

mask options: 
one // two // three // four // five 
six // seven // eight // nine
