Forty-One

Halloween Plans:

My costume was mostly inspired by all 1920's silent film actresses. But as I collected more and more photo's for costume ideas, I realized that there was one actress that stood out amongst the rest-Clara Bow. Leading to my final decision to be her for Halloween. What are you all planning for your Halloween costumes?

I love the Halloween pictures of her... too cute. Good costume choice. :D I'm planning on going as Duckie from Pretty in Pink, provided I can put the costume together!

Luchie-You need to host a halloween party just for the sake of! You can disguise it as a costume party ;)

Jenni- I love your costume idea! you have to take pictures once you have the whole ensemble

What a wonderful idea! I have a million scattered ideas but I can't seem to settle on one costume, but I think either a flapper, a crossword puzzle, or Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.

I love Clara Bow, what a brilliant costume idea!! I still haven't decided what to be yet, I usually know months in advance. Also, I've been looking through your old posts, and you do have the most amazing hat collection, I love every one of them!!

Much more interesting than your token cat/mouse/witch/zombie bride (yes I did pretty much reference Mean Girls there). I think this Halloween me and the boyf are going to watch a silent movie, and understated way to celebrate jazzy ♥

Oh my God...I realise now that I was so overwelmed with this new University year begining and other stuff that my imagination totally abandoned me!

I have no idea what I'm gonna wear but I know that I'll attend the same party in the same place and same friends as I always do! Nice pictures ...maybe I'll get some inspiration from here :)

P.S. ...I hope there will be a party ... cause my head was so in the clouds lately :)

Kisses!

Great costume ideas! I can't wait to see how you dress up :)

We were thinking of being Sloan and Ferris from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, my guy would be Sloan because she's taller hehe

You're going to look great! I just got the finishing touches over the weekend at Alameda for my Louise Brooks costume.

Me and the boy are going to be Donatello and Michealangelo. The Teeneage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I just can't decide on how to make the costumes

Oh hurray! That's a great costume and I can't wait to see the pictures! I'm kind of anti-halloween myself, but I do like seeing other people's costumes.

So cute! I don't know what I'm going to dress up as yet....the boyfriend and I have had a hard time trying to come up with a couples costume that isn't cliché. Any ideas?!?!

I think all silent film actresses are so stunning. Their makeup, hair and poise. I can't wait to see your final costume!w
