Curves Around the World: Halloween Edition

Happy Halloween!
Hey lovelies, I hope your having a wonderful day. So "Curves Around the World" is back and today were giving you our Halloween style for this year. So Halloween happens to be my Birthday, so I pretty much always dress up. So this year I didn't know where I was going but I decided to put this costume together anyways. I like DIYing costumes because costume's are so expensive and can be so generic. So I went on pinterest and searched there DIY costumes and came across an Owl costume. 

I saw one DIY costume and decided to google it and saw there were so many people who did the owl costumes, so I took those as inspiration. First thing I did was look through my mom's old fabrics and only found one that would work and I decided to go with felt because it seemed really easy to work with. I went to the fabric store and I found out they were on sale so I got 3 colors to compliment my printed fabric. The colors I got were yellow, brown and grey. 
So most of the DIY's said that they used a pillow case to as the base of the dress but for me I had my mom sew me a simple dress because I know my body would not fit in a pillow case. 
So for my owl headband I just found a picture of different owl faces and tried my best to try to copy the shape of it. Then I took extra felt that I had to make the eyes and I decided to add some eyelashes to my owl because I thought it would be cute. 
Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween.What are you doing for Halloween? What are you going to be this year? I would love to hear about it. But also don't forget to check out the other lovely ladies in the links below.

  1. This is so creative, Nina! If you haven't uploaded this to Pinterest yet, you totally should. I need to add you and see what you're up to over there! I go through spurts with Pinterest. I won't look at it for weeks and weeks. And then I'll spend an entire day on it. It's addicting!

    I think your outfit turned out so sweet, and I love that you went for something different. I'm not a fan of party store costumes either because I feel like they're all the same. Let's take a beloved female character, shorten her skirt, and make a sexified version of her look! That's fine and all, but it's not my style. I had much more fun dressing for this Halloween. It wasn't a costume party, but we were encouraged to dress like our rock'n'roll idols. It's a theme I've never dressed for before, so I had fun putting together an edgy rocker look.

    Hope you had a Happy Halloween!

    1. Thanks Liz, I'm in the same way with pinterest, I can stop going on for weeks at a time and when I go back on I get too excited and I'm on there for long periods of time. And yeah I agree, it's hard to wear costumes from the store, they just aren't me and I think it's fun being creative and putting together a costume. But yeah I saw your Halloween post, you looked great, it's always fun dressing up! :)
