Who else loves a great last-minute Halloween costume idea? This costume came together quickly and I bet you have most of the components in your closet and dress-up bin.
I had to giggle when this chatty girl wanted to be a mime this Halloween. She’s ever the performer and has been ‘practicing’ her silence for a couple of weeks in preparation. The whole family is loving it, lol! We snapped these pictures on her way to dance (yep, it was snowing brrrrr!). Upon picking her up, she said her dance team LOVED her costume and insisted she stay in character all night. I’m thinking her school teacher might appreciate her commitment to her costume as well!
For this look, she is wearing an Ocotillo Leotard in Riley Blake knit and suspenders from this shoot paired with black pants. We picked up the scarf, gloves, and beret at the costume store and I was surprised we didn’t already have them in our own dress-up bin. I think they’ll come in handy in the future and will work for so many other simple costumes.
We went with simple make-up. I am definitely not a make-up artist. I need some You-Tube lessons stat! Luckily, she’s not picky and the teardrops and red lips were perfect for her.
I’m secretly jumping for joy that my girls picked striped costumes. That’s my girls!
