Halloween is one of the most fun days of the year, but the weeks leading up to it can be very stressful. I’m always either still scrambling to think of a genius costume idea, or I’m struggling with how to make that idea come to life.
Do I take the easy and dull route and buy the same unnecessarily revealing costume that a million other girls will have, or do I get creative with a DIY costume that will most likely end in disaster (like that Halloween I decided to create a shark fin head piece out of Styrofoam)?
What I’ve come to find is that the only way to ensure simplicity and individuality (as well as sanity), is to just focus on the makeup. If you look like the character you’re trying to emulate, your outfit doesn’t have to be so elaborate.
