Halloween is a time of creative freedom but this year is a little well very different. Same may say it is making this time grim, however, I challenge you to try to see a different perspective. For instance, wearing a face mask can add to your costume rather than hinder it. In past years you’d paint your face, this year all you need to do is decorate a mask saving time and well the itchiness from paint on your face. On another note for obvious reasons most workplaces prohibit employees from coming to work with a painted face or full covered mask. A face mask opens up the possibilities for me this year which is why I decided to create this d.i.y. specifically. Not going to work? Well wear it out for errands or around the house to spark a little joy to those around you and yourself. Below is the full tutorial for part one of the bear costume tutorial, the mask along with written instructions.

White Glitter Iron on
Mini Easy Press
Press all the pleats straight on the face mask. It will not lay flat if you have a fitted mask similar to the one I used.
Draw out the bears nose and smile on paper, scan it onto your computer and upload it into design space.
In design space create an oval to go under the nose and smile layer.
Measure your face mask to make sure the proportions will fit on your mask.
Place your glitter iron on down (shiny side down) and cut out both pieces.
Press the white glitter iron oval onto the mask. (Peel cold)
Press the nose and smile on top of the white oval. (Peel cold)
On Wednesday we will be creating bear ear hair clips to complete the look so mark your calendars.

Since the first trailer came out for Ralph Breaks the Internet, I have been hooked and rather excited for it to come out in theaters. I’ve seen the trailer where Ralph feeds the bunny too many pancakes so many times! Comment down below if you laugh every time too. If you have not seen it yet here it is, you’re welcome.
Still don’t have a costume picked out? Don’t worry, here is yet another easy diy costume to inspire you! For those lovelies out there who love to go under the sea. ha. For real though, Ariel is my favorite princess but often has a trashy looking halloween costume. This is why I decided to do a more modest version for ya’ll.
Since Halloween is on a Wednesday this post is focused on not only last minute ideas but also inspiration for work appropriate costumes. Suggestions on how to make costumes work appropriate are also included for the not so typical options. I did flat lay photos as each costume’s makeup depends on how strict your dress code is at work.
EEEP! Today I have exciting news, the first official Halloween costume of the season in a d.i.y. To make things easier your girl made a youtube video to guide you step by step to making this sassy beast costume. This was actually my costume last year for Halloween, however, with the Meg movie that came out this year plus sharks being my favorite animal I could not resist sharing it.
