Costume # 11: CUTE Oompa Loompa :)

ok, so I think I might end up being a cute little oompa loompa on Halloween because my friend Alli has convinced me that it would be cute if she dressed up as Willy Wonka, and I was her little oompa loompa.  I definitely want to make this look cute and girly, which should be a bit of a challenge, but I think I might be able to pull it off.  Be sure to look out for pictures of me as a cute oompa girl... and make sure when you are eating your first Wonka Bar this Halloween you check to see if you got a Golden Ticket!.......... ok, I know that wasn't that funny...

Here is a girl in her oompa attire

So for my hair, I think I will do my faux bob again, which was super easy, and just spray that temporary green dye in it.  For makeup, I will get a foundation that is slightly more orange and set it with a super orange/tan powder.  I still want my oompa loompa look to be  cute, so I want to do some cute green eye shadow, and maybe some green eye lashes.  I also want to go to a candy store and maybe pick up a couple of those novelty looking lolly pops to stick in my pockets...

SEE! it is Cool to be this tan (not)

ok.. here is Kandee's take on this look.  Kandee is way more authentic.  I want to be way more girly than her look, but I thought I would post it anyway because Kandee is awesome and this video is super funny :)  DOOPITY DOO!!!!

Lightning Bold Earrings

Getting ready to have a fun night with my Lightning Bolding earrings I got at Charlotte Russe for only $5.00!

Have a wonderful evening as well... I thought these earrings were very fitting due to the current weather around Cincinnati.. 


Hey everyone! Last night was super fun because my flapper costume turned out great.  I was scared that I wouldn't be able to pull  off the faux bob.  My hair is really fine, so I thought it would look bad, and you would be able to see all the bobby pins.  However, it turned out great!!!  and it didn't take long at all.  It just took tons of bobby pins and a lot of hairspray... yeah, my hair didn't move at all last night! (thanks to Big Sexy Hair hairspray :)

Here I am with my long hair

And here I am with my Flapper Faux bob

The magic hairspray!

Here is the Faux Bob tutorial that helped me out

Here I am all decked out with the Flapper accessories.  I LOVED the head band that I got at Charlotte Russe.. It was so much better than the one I bought from the costume store, and it fit snuggly on my head.

Vamping it up with a cig..

Costume # 10: Queen of Hearts

OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!!!!!! The Queen of Hearts look is awesome, edgy, and fun.  From John Tenniel's illustrated version from the original Lewis Carroll children's story "Alice in Wonderland" to Tim Burton's take on this lovable villain, there has been many looks in between.. I would like to show the vast array of different approaches of makeup looks and hair.. remember don't LOSE YOUR HEAD while you are blown away by all these awesome Queen of Heart looks.

John Tenniel's version

Disney's version

Here is 10 full minutes of Queen of Heart Fun Disney Style.


So many makeup looks to choose from! Which one is your favorite?

(I LOVE the HEART Lips <3 )

(This is Kandee's Tim Burton adaptation)


*OMG this last video made me laugh.. this guy is so funny, energetic, and talented! I wish he was my own italian makeup artist :) *


The hair should be in a big pompadour, and you get brownie points if your pompadour is heart shaped! <3

(thought this was new and different)

Some other fun things you might need! <3

Costume # 9: Black Swan

The film Black Swan gave the fashion world a dark edgy feminine edge in apparel and makeup.  This would be a super fun costume for Halloween, and it would not be that hard to pull off.  All you need is a black ballerina dress and the right makeup.  The hair is extra easy, because all you need to do is pull it in a super tight ballerina bun.

 You could go the extra mile and get red contacts to make your eyes creepy blood red, but I don't think it is necessary.  If I were to do this look, I don't think I would use the contacts.

Here is a look side view the the tight ballerina bun.


Dress and Accessories

I Thought this black feather arm piece was really interesting.
