Maria from the Sound of Music Costume

How do you solve a problem like Maria? You can’t she’s the worst. The Sound of Music is one of my favourite films of all time, so I’m happy that I’ve finally been able to honour it with a costume.   Photo credit: Frosted Tips   Blonde Short Wig: Ebay Black Long sleeve Top: Uniqlo…

Breakfast at Tiffany’s Tuxedo Shirt Costume

I was a HUGE fan of the mini-series Secrets and Lies, and while I couldn’t create a costume based on one of the characters, I could create one of the costumes seen in the series. Reese Witherspoon’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s tuxedo shirt costume was my inspiration for today’s costume and I hope you enjoy it….

Bonnie and Clyde Shot Up Costumes

For my second Halloween party this year, my boyfriend and I decided to dress up as Bonnie and Clyde, but all shot up, to make it more Halloween appropriate.  We based our Bonnie and Clyde costumes off of the 1967 Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway film.

Yoko Ono Costume

Today I have dressed as young Yoko Ono, aka her era with John Lennon in the 60’s/70’s. This costume is easy so long as you have a big white floppy hat and circular glasses.

Morticia Addams from The Addams Family Costume

Today I have taken on another Addams family member with this costume of Morticia Addams (previously I have done Cousin It and Wednesday Addams). It’s a bit warm in Melbourne today (32 degrees!) so please excuse any unsavoury sweat beads. Photo credit: Frosted Tips Long black wig: Ebay Black top: Glassons (with added black paper…

Barbarella Costume

Dearest valued costume fans, I’m SOOOO SORRY that’s it’s been so long since my last post, but suffice to say that things have been rather crazy in Maryland (also a chocolate chip cookie brand in the UK) so I will make it up to you with not one, but TWO costume posts this week! First…

The Birds Tippi Hedren Costume

Today as we are on Halloween Eve, I thought I’d come back to the classic horror genre for my costume today, dressing as Tippi Hedren from Hitchcock’s The Birds, mid-bird attack.

Day 363: Barbie

Today I have taken on the user-suggested theme of Barbie, dressing as a Barbie doll still in it’s box. Thanks go to my brothers for helping me get the box sorted in time!

Day 362: Bewitched

  On June 24, 2005, Bewitched was released. The film was nowhere near the amazing that was the TV series, but in honour of my childhood years spent watching the show I have taken it on as a theme, dressing as the best character – Endora – Samantha’s mother. One of my favourite aspects of…

Day 330: Mary Poppins

On May 23, 1973, Mary Poppins was re-released for the THIRD time after it’s initial release on August 27, 1964. Mary Poppins was a childhood favourite for many reasons, but let’s face it, the obvious was that she was “practically perfect in every way” and we shared the same name. A couple of years ago…
