Lord Voldemort Harry Potter Costume

Continuing on with my creepy, Halloween appropriate costumes, I have today created a Lord Voldemort, He Who Shall Not Be Named, costume. I know that I’ve already done a Harry Potter costume this month with my Bellatrix Le Strange costume, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show you how easily you could create…

Nancy Downs from The Craft Costume

If you were anything like me, and you grew up in the 90’s, then there is about a 95% chance that you loved the film, The Craft. It is honestly one of my favourite films of all time and made me want to be a witch when I was a tween. When I realised that I…

Bride of Frankenstein Costume

Bride of Frankenstein is a classic Halloween costume for the ages. The whole outfit comes together with the hairstyle and make-up. If you are “blessed” with curly hair, then you have a great base for the Bride of Frankenstein hairstyle. First step is to brush it, and then tease the HELL out of it. Next,…

Ilana Broad City Costume

Melbourne has been having some unseasonably warm weather lately. With that in mind I thought I’d take on one of my favourite outfits of a great female comedy character – Ilana from Broad City in the “In Heat” episode. This is the episode where they are on a quest for an air conditioner and Ilana…

Maleficent Costume (Classic Cartoon Disney Style)

Last night was my very close friends Hen’s night which was Disney themed. As I have done so many Disney princesses previously with Disney week, I thought i’d tackle a villain with this Maleficent costume. It took about 4-5 hours to make out of garbage bags, newspaper, tape and cardboard and I honestly think it’s…

Retirement Party, Glamour Nanna Costume

Rosie the Robot from The Jetsons Costume

Today I am REALLY proud of my Rosie the Robot from The Jetsons costume! I have been planning this one for a while and have been quite lazy/procrastinating from actually making it. But now that I have finally put it together I’m really happy with it! Photo credit: Noodle Noo Silver robot head: Homemade from…

Annabelle Doll Costume

She is hella creepy and a great Halloween costume. Photo credit: Nettie Noodles Strawberry blonde wig: Ebay Red ribbon: Hot Dollar White dress: Mink Pink (with red tape and…

Dancing Twin Girls Emoji Costume

Today’s costume is based on a theme I think we will see a lot this year at Halloween parties – emoji’s. With this I have chosen to recreate the dancing/twin girls emoji as a costume.

Avril Lavigne Costume

Today I had a Naughties (2000’s) themed party that I was invited to, which was changed last minute 😦 Regardless, I had created this Avril Lavigne costume for it.
