KittyCotten 's Thoughts:

Next to high heels, lilac perfume, and my kindle — I love owls. My adorable round owls eyes are a DIY project using a pair of groovy 70s glasses, fabric and white feathers. My feathers are fabric remnants cut into big feathers and glued to one of my boyfriend’s old shirts with the sleeve cut-off. It took many hours tirelessly cutting out each feather, but it was a labor of love. Of course I had to stay in “hooty-hoot” character all night, which means I don’t have a single photo of myself smiling — only hooting. Haha! Happy Halloween!

This is the best costume I've seen thus far! Love how this costume looks like you bought it, but really you did it yourself.. I'm still tryna get there, my costumes still look hand crafted. Anyways LOVE your costume.
