A DIY Halloween Inspiration
Happy Halloween!! I have never been one to really participate in Halloween festivities with the exception of my childhood. I actually really loved dressing up and running through the neighborhood with my siblings and cousins. My parents were never the ones to actually purchase a costume. It always was DIY and whatever we had around the house. With 3 kids - I can see why! I think as a teenager, it made me embarrassed that I did not have the cool costume or the most expensive. In college, I purchase my first ever costume and was planning on going to Franklin street in Chapel Hill. It was a little scandalous - I thought that was what Halloween really was for college students- a chance to look a little bit like a street walker with no judgement attached. I chickened out. I couldn't do it. It was cold for one thing -I mean FREEZING - and my heart wasn't in it. I have dressed up once in the last 10 years of my life:
|I was pregnant with Ada and I was a bun in the oven with Sam as the bun maker|
Now, as a momma of 2. I am really starting to get into the Halloween spirit. I enjoy seeing the kiddos dressed up that come to the door and I really love seeing the excitement on my 2 year old's face when she gets to try on her Cinderella dress that her Aunt Courtney made her. I can see why my mom made us have DIY costumes. It may have been a cost saver, but it is so much better than the store bought! It is different, interesting, and so very creative. So with a little bit of Polyvore perusing, I came across these adult DIY costumes that some of you may have hanging in your closet and didn't even know it. With a few little purchase from Target or Wal-Mart- you have the perfect, creative, and fun Halloween costume. Enjoy..
