WhatIWore: With military jackets all the rage this season, I thought it totally appropriate to make the most awesome costume EVER using mine. I paired it with a frilly blouse, leggings as pantaloons, cream tights underneath and then some shiny shoes. The real ‘ta-da’ is the powdered ‘do. First, let’s talk about the details of the ensemble:
- Military Style Jacket originally from ModCloth
- Frilly Blouse also originally from ModCloth
- Leggings free from old job
- Tights originally from We Love Colors
- Shoes originallyfrom Payless
- Hat borrowed from Adam
- Flag borrowed from Adam
Now, the best part - the hair! I created the style by brushing most of my (dirty) hair into a pony tail, and leaving the sides free. Then I took my smallest velcro rollers and did some little side do hickey thingies. I pulled a little extra hair around the edges in an attempt to conceal the rollar.
Then… the POWDER!!! I just went nutso here and sprinkled it all over the place and lightly tapping my hair so it would soak in a bit.
I’m so pleased with the end result. This was the most expensive costume this week (due to the baby powder) and came in at $1.79. Total.
Who said Halloween Costumes need to cost a lot of money??
