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!
