Halloween Costume Inspiration

Link


This Zelda costume is brilliant and pretty easy to pull off. You'll need a long sleeve light brown shirt, brown belt, green tunic/dress or oversized t-shirt, brown boots, and a green stocking hat (or elf hat, if you can find one!). Sword and shield optional. ;)
Where in the World....


Last year it was all about 'Where is Waldo?' This year, let's make it about Carmen. I loved 'Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?' as a kid... both the tv show and the computer game.  You may not randomly have a red trench hanging in your closet, but I'm thinking you could improve by pulling together a red skirt and long sleeved collared shirt, belting it, and accessorizing with black boots, black gloves, and a red hat. Don't forget the mustard-colored scarf!

Lolita Halloween Costumes: Sherlock Holmes


I'm reeeeeally digging this Sherlock Holmes costume idea.  It's made up of a bunch of basics that shouldn't be too difficult to get your hands on--a brown dress, brown boots, a trench or riding cape, an English-looking hat, and accessories like a pipe and magnifying glass.  Or you can put a more masculine spin on it with trousers, a man's dress shirt and vest, and a bow tie.

Oodelally


I had my heart set on being Robin Hood for a while last year.  Belt a green dress, pull on brown boots, wear some leather jewelry, and top it all off with Robin's feathered hat.

Mario & Luigi Halloween Costume


This is a super cute idea if you and a friend wanna dress up together---Mario and Luigi are the best of pals!  Brighten up a basic pair of bib-overalls with big yellow buttons, wear a red or green tee, and don't forget your M or L cap!

[22] Halloween Costume Idea: Cookie Monster


 I think this would be particular fun because you could have an excuse to eat cookies (and steal give out cookies) all night!
Dress like Arthur!


And lastly, dressing up as a childhood favorite is always a hit.  And with a pair of blue jeans, white polo, yellow cardigan, and red chucks... you can't go wrong as Arthur!

Those are all awesome! My boyfriend and I are actually going as Mario and Luigi this year!

You can get their signature hats (mustaches included), gloves, and suspenders with the yellow buttons on them for $45-$50 from Hot Topic.

These are all amazing! If I weren't set on being Ms. Frizzle, I'd totally go as Carmen Sandiego!

It's seems main that this season, Sherlock Holmes clothing are going to be the way to go for boost actions. You concept for the best Hallow's eve 2010 clothing is already solved! Usually, Part of a Sherlock costume a caped protect in examined created of created of wool and a double-billed hat has been associated with the character of Sherlock Holmes, but in the newest film he would use a Victorian-era black clothing protect over a damask coat and black trousers.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
