Smurfette.

Hello there everyone and Happy Halloween!
Well... the black cat is out of the bag now: I was a smurf this year for Halloween(or a smurfette if you want to be politically correct!)

I needed to think of a cheap, homemade costume this year since I am in fact a broke high school student. I thought a smurf(ette) would be the perfect costume because I already had the white dress, blonde wig, and shoes. All I had to buy was some face paint for my body/face ($.97) and blue leggings ($5). I actually made my hat by sewing together two pieces of white felt and stuffing it with paper towels. I was quite proud of my first sewing project!

I will say though I am thankful it's all over with and done. I think I had good intentions for my smuf(ette) costume, however, I didn't execute it well enough and think many aspects through. My white dress is covered in blue paint now, and all day I had to keep retouching my blue because it kept coming off everywhere. Not to mention the paint was super itchy and kept cracking every time I moved my face... Not the most conventional costume, eh?

Anywhoo, it was still super fun to dress up and enjoy one of my favorite holidays. I received a free lunch line cut for one of the best costumes and even got my picture taken for the year book! Which a true feat for a nobody like myself ;) I hope you all had a lovely and 'not so blue' Halloween, hehe!

With much love, Lauren.

P.S. Here's a look at last year's costume if you care to see!

I was Lisa Simpson one year and definitely decided to never paint myself again. It was sooooo itchy. You do look adorable though.

That is such an incredible Halloween costume! That is super creative!
Too bad the paint kept coming off, but it's still really cute. I'm glad that you got a picture in the year-book, that's exciting! :)

This might be the best Halloween costume I've seen in a long time, and plus it is really refreshing to see a modest costume! Cute idea!
