headbandit 's Thoughts:

Happy Halloween!

I went through a slew of different ideas when deciding what to be this year: Gaga, Wednesday…there was even a brief moment I considered Katy Perry when I spotted a bright blue wig at the Halloween store.
I finally chose Ke$ha because I thought the trash bag dress was a perfect DIY!

While I’m not sure I believe Ke$ha DIY’ed her own dress, I did mine, and let me tell you—plastic is not the most fun material to sew. It got kind of bunchy in some places, which was totally frustrating, but I think I made it work. I added a braided detail along the neckline like the original, and a grey faux fur collar instead of black. I couldn’t find any black faux fur! But I think the grey is a nice contrast, and I actually made it based of off Syl & Sam’s recent tutorial! I also opted for tights because I didn’t want to look too trashy (har, har).

I’m really into nail art right now, so I tried to recreate Ke$ha’s animal print nail look as well; I wore my leopard shoes to match because somehow I don’t own a pair of basic black pumps. The blue ring is also DIY! Just a piece of glass with tinfoil wrapped around it, haha.

While I love Halloween and it’s always fun to dress up, I don’t think I could be Ke$ha everyday. Please excuse me while I wipe the glitter from my eyes.

He@ther

P.S. I know the “nose ring” looks all kinds of ridiculous on me! It’s actually an ear cuff, hahaha :D

Heather you look so great (even though I'm not a big Ke$ha fan) HAHA. The costume is so spot on and I can't believe how much of it is DIY! The fur stole and the ring is perfect!
