I can’t remember the last time I planned my Halloween costume in advance…probably never actually. If my mom didn’t do it for me, you better believe I was scrounging around my local halloween store the night before for something wasn’t scary or scandalous lol.
Last year, Ryan ordered this left shark costume on a whim but we had no plans so I didn’t worry about planning on something to wear.
Of course the night before, we decided we were going to go to an event at a brewery in the Outer Banks and I had less than 24 hours to become the best Katy Perry I could be.
The Halloween stores were empty so I hit Michael’s where I literally bought 3 inch blue ribbon and felt paper in white, red, yellow and blue. The base of my outfit was a white halter top and a white cotton circle skirt. I stapled pieces of felt to a piece of ribbon and tied it around my waste. For the top, I cut out white felt circles and layered the colored felt on top to make them look like beach balls. Add some ribbon around the neckline and I was good to go!
Not too shabby for a last minute look built by felt and staples. Lol.
