Ok people. It’s do or die time.
And I think I’m dying.
Only 1 day left until Halloween and I’m just now thinking about my children and their costumes.
“Mommy! Are we going to do our costumes today?”
“What about today?”
“Can we do it tomorrow?”
“What about now?”
“Absolutely not, and if you ask me one more time, I’m cancelling Halloween. And don’t think I won’t do it!”

I’m a horrible mother.
But luckily for them, I’m also a liar, and a bit dramatic.
This year because we are under the gun, all costumes are being made with stuff we already have at home. Which I’ve got to tell you, in my humble opinion is in the spirit of Halloween. Paper costumes? Great! Old sheets dressed up as ghosts? FANTASTIC! Mommy’s Urban Decay make-up for a Princess/Queen/Ruler of the Universe? Sounds just about perfect.
Anyway, Soledad always picks something completely different from anything I could have ever dreamed up.
This year, she picked a swan.
And this is what we pulled together. . . .last night.
WHAT WE USED:
tight white shirt
tight white shorts
Yellow homemade tutu
White and Yellow Feather homemade headband
Fluffy white scarf or material
black creme eyeliner
white eyeliner pencil
red lip liner
WHAT WE DID:
Tight white shirt, white stockings, and white shorts to cover our panty lines.
Hair pulled back into a ballerina bun.
Clean glistening skin. . . .
Then I drew on the Swan Eyes. . . . .
highlighting with the white pencil. . . .
Line and fill in the lips!
Pull on the tutu! Wrap the scarf around shoulders, pin at breast, and wrap the remaining length around the torso and pin again in the back.
Shake a tail feather:)
