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.
Lost for words, where to begin and more importantly is there an end. As we are living through what will soon be written in the history books of future generations it can feel as if we are in a stand still. I refuse to believe that this time is a halt in progress. Yes, it can be lonely at times as we are away from loved ones to keep them safe. Yes, those who have taken advantage can blur the lines and darken an already stormy day. Frankly it is disgusting so why is the system built to their advantage? Why do we encourage thieves with repercussions being unwritten. You can only blame your upbringing for so much so I refuse to believe that our parents are the ones to blame for the story their descendants decide to write. What kind of story are you painting during this uncertain time? Will you focus on the way the stars sparkle and light up the darkness or will you allow it to consume you at the core. No matter how this year has started everyday is a day to change how your story will be written so remember even if today’s page is dark and grey there is a new one to flip to in the morning. It is perfectly okay to be not okay, everyone paints a smile from time to time. Remember you do not need to be alone either, if you open your eyes and allow them, those who love you are waiting to lift you up.
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.
