Happy Halloween, Psychos!
As many of you know, Halloween is my all-time favorite holiday. For those of you who don’t know, go here and here and then come back.
Last year, I was overcome with sadness because wedding planning had taken over my life and sucked time away that should have been spent making a brand new Halloween costume. I was forced to reuse an older costume, but I vowed that I would get back into the spirit this year, and this woman keeps her Halloween vows.
Behold, my interpretation of Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games:
My awesome partner was Peeta Mellark from The Hunger Games:
For my costume, I bought the dress at a thrift store, I bought the amazing wig at a Halloween store (worth every penny), and my mom helped me sew the jacket so that I’d have appropriately shiny fabric and puffy sleeves. Indeed, those sleeves are stuffed with tissue paper. I got the flowers at the fabric store and pinned them into the wig, and pinned one on each shoe.
For the makeup, I actually used this old, bright pink blush because the color was perfect. It’s on my eyes, cheeks, and lips. I bought some tinsel eyelashes and cut them to look more shapely and dramatic.
For my partner’s costume, he bought the District 12 shirt online, and from what we can tell, it’s exactly like the one in the movie. Then he added some black workout pants and black shoes and his natural charm, and BOOM, you got some hunky dude whose warm arms smell just like freshly baked bread.
Bet you never knew there was a secret fling between the two, right? I mean, how else did Peeta actually make it through the games?!
Have fun this Halloween!!! How do you celebrate this fantastic holiday??
Guess what?! I just brought more crazy to Facebook! I wasn’t even sure that was possible, but I dream big. Liking Psychobabble on Facebook is like putting on a nice, snug straightjacket to give yourself a hug!
