Happy Friday! With Halloween just around the corner I thought I would share my costume inspiration from last Halloween. It is no secret that everyone in my family, except for the mister, has a mad obsession with Once Upon a Time. Last Halloween my girls really wanted to be princesses…since I am “that mom” that loves to do themed Halloween’s, I decided that the only way that they can be princesses is if I can be…REGINA from ABC Family Once Upon a Time.
Basically, all you need to be REGINA is a long dress (I chose a sexy lace dress), cape, tiara, feathered cape, heel (I chose some stiletto boots), and RED LIPSTICK. Believe it or not, I spent 99cents on my Halloween costume last year. I made my crown and the feathered part of the cape and my sexy lace dress… I already had. The only thing purchased was the cape, which I got at my local thrift store.
I will have to share how I created the feathered part of the cape on a later day because that needs a visual and cannot really be explained n writing. The crown/tiara on the other hand was very simple to make. You may already have some of the materials laying in your home or even outside. haha!
Black Spray Paint
1. Gather some twigs and sticks
2. Hot glue the twigs to the headband. It is okay to clump on the hot glue to give it a more creepy sinister look.
3. Once the glue dries, spray paint it black
voila! I love this picture! The smile on my daughter’s face brings me so much joy. I am so blessed to have kids who don’t mind my crazy antics…i.e…themed Halloween costumes.
Just for kicks…my adorable babes from last Halloween.
