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…

Diabolical Owl Girl Meme Costume

A couple of days ago an image surfaced on the internet of a diabolical-looking little girl holding an owl. Onced again the internet proved it was a magical place and a whole bunch of photoshop versions of the image were made thanks to Reddit. It was pretty funny and in the spirit of bringing you…

Lydia Deetz Beetlejuice Costume

About two weeks ago, I put it to Facebook in this post that I would dress up everyday in costume for the month of October if I received 100 likes. Thanks to the support of all of you I reached 100 likes – and then some! So today starts my month-long Halloween costume challenge, and…

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…

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.

Adam Maitland from Beetlejuice Costume

I loved Beetlejuice as a kid! So today I have taken on Adam Maitland from Beetlejuice where they have their monster/scary stretchy faces. The mask was made with just folded paper on top of a cap, so I’m pretty stoked with how well it turned out on such a dodgy concept. Photo credit: Noodle Noo…

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…

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.

Sharknado Costume

Today I have taken on the terrible-on-purpose film Sharknado, dressing as a tornado of sharks. This is a great example of using household items such as plastic bags to create a fun and inventive costume. Photo credit: Frosted Tips ‘Sharknado’ costume: Grey and white plastic bags tied together and twisted around my body with lights…

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…
