Hi Guys & Dolls!
It’s pretty easy to guess the inspiration behind this tutorial: Pop Art & Comics! This was a lot of fun to do and to wear- it’s visually striking and if you forget you’re wearing it and pass by a mirror you’ll get a “whoa” moment! The makeup is so iconic and recognizable that it makes a perfect cheap Halloween costume. There are so many options with this: Dots or no dots, You can wear clothes you already own, use makeup you already have, and you don’t even have to wear the wig, I just thought it was fun!
My recommendations for a costume would be a pencil skirt, a cardigan, and a killer pair of heels or flats, and of course red nails! I used a smartphone “retro handset” as a prop and I think it really enhances the costume! DO a few tests with this before Halloween and you’ll surely be the most charming girl (or guy) that night!
The Wig is from Vougewigs.com
The Sweater is from Torrid.com
The Necklace is from Spirit Halloween
The Retro Handset I bought at FedEx- but it’s terrible (too quite to really use) but great for a prop!
