Happy Halloween! Morticia Addams Costume

dsc_8457

Halloween has always been one of my favourite holidays as far back as I can remember. Every single year without fail I have dressed up. Although my trick or treating days are gone (someone let me borrow your adorable kids) I still enjoy going out in a costume, eating too much candy, and pumpkin anything.

When it comes to picking a costume, there are too many television divas to impersonate. Lizzie McGuire, for one has been a heartthrob for teens and adults alike. This year, however, for Halloween I decided to go as Morticia Addams…

I have a horrible tendency every single year to wait until the last minute to buy or organize my costume. Which is ironic because I know what I want to dress as for months. Luckily for me, I discovered that a few days before Halloween, Ricky’s slashes the pricing for Halloween costumes and accessories 50% off! Bren and I both bought our costumes (and my JWOW wig-yes really) for $45. Unfortunately in our haste, Bren accidentally bought the children’s costume! Bren went as my Gomez <3. We styled an old Zara suit, parted his hair in the center with gel and I drew on a french mustache. It took me four tries and two makeup remover wipes to get the mustache right! As long as you don't have a very specific and very unique costume, taking a risk and waiting until closer to Halloween can save serious cash. dsc_8432My beauty look for this costume was the most fun. I used a smash box contour set then realized it wasn’t dramatic enough. I used a black Dior eyeshadow and loaded up my contouring brush to get this sculpted look. Morticia favors red lips and has a beauty mark like I do so that part wasn’t too tricky. I already have a widow’s peak but it’s not nearly as defined so I used my eyebrow brush and powder do give myself a sharp one.
