"Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story." - Mason Cooley

Alright ladies, HalloWEEKEND is upon us - woot woot!! But don't stress if you're feeling a little unprepared. I'm here to help you #HalloWIN this weekend! I've pulled together the cutest last minute DIY costume that requires little to no effort! I know exactly what you're thinking - and nope! It's absolutely N-O-T the basic black cat. So consider your costume dilemma covered! But what about the "treat" you're supposed to bring to that party? Yup, I've thought of that too! So here's to a fabulous HalloWEEKEND!  

HALLO-HELP! 

As promised, your last minute Halloween costume is going far beyond the basic black cat! Now I've thought long and hard about what every female of every age would have in her closet. My result: FLANNEL! {Pssst... If you don't have one, your husband, boyfriend, significant other, or brother is bound to have one hidden in his closet somewhere!} Now we all know that flannel is trending this Fall, so why not show off your fav flannel? How, you ask?! Dress up as an adorable SCARECROW! 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
1. Face paint // Make-up
2. FLANNEL SHIRT
3. Felt Hat // Accessories

 

Face paint and a hint of make-up is an absolute must for this costume! Just hop on over to your local drug store, Target, or Wally World to grab a basic face painting kit. Don't forget a black eyeliner pencil and any shade of metallic bronze eyeshadow for details and an extra pop!

  

Apply face paint and make-up in layers. Begin by applying the peach colored paint on your cheeks and nose. Let this dry fully before layering on your chosen shade of metallic bronze eyeshadow. This gives your painted cheeks more definition and a shimmery, yet matte, finish. Finally, use an eyeliner pencil to draw on the finishing details - your stitched mouth and stitched nose. 

It's FLANNEL time! Grab your favorite flannel and pop that baby on!  

 To complete your outfit - grab a felt hat, straw hat, or any hat for that matter and accessorize with some decorative straw!

VUALA!! Last minute Halloween costumer complete!

BOO{ze}!!  IT'S TIME TO PARTY!
