circle of salt to protect from zombies, witches, and old boyfriends...

Oct 12, 2009

Okay, I'm a bad blogger friend.
Seriously, life has been so crazy go nuts that by the time I get home the last thing I want to do is look at a computer.

Work is work.
That's all I can safely say here for now.

As far as that whole tutu thing -- I had a bunch of questions asking how/why/what I'm gonna be for Halloween.
Well, friends, Halloween is, like, my favorite (non-traditional) holiday.
You get to dress up as whatever you'd like and people give you FREE candy!! Where's the bad in this whole situation?
Anyway, in the past I've always been something cutesy or just fun for Halloween. I've never been anything even a touch morbid. I've been a princess (a thousand times), a cheerleader, a construction worker, a witch, a pirate, etc...but never anything ... weird.
So this year ... I'm going as ...
(drumroll, please)
a dead ballerina.

I know, I know.
But dude, my tutu is BAD A.
(I PROMISE I'll take a picture when my camera battery isn't dead).
As far as how to make one -- I did mine similarly to this:

I figured a video was better than trying to describe it.
AND sewing tulle is a BEAST so the non-sew option is AWESOME.
Anyone can do this. Seriously. ANYONE.
I did mine with 4 colors: black, turquoise, hot pink, and black with purple metallic spiderwebs.
And then I have spiderweb tights, some gorgeous heels, I made a headband for the occasion, and even "invested" in a leotard.

As far as makeup, MAC has been doing this awesome series of Halloween themed makeovers.
I think my zombie makeup will become something like this -- what do we think?
I'm SOOOO excited.

In other news, last week seems like it was craptastic for just about everyone. And in one day I managed to cry, break my purse AND my dvd player, and get sick in a giant fell swoop (and that wasn't even all of it). now that I've repaired/replaced at least some of that ... I feel like it can only go up from here. BUT. We all need a little humor. So I leave you with something that keeps making me laugh, no matter how many times I watch it.

Hope you all have a great Monday.


  1. I hope this week is better for you! That costume is going to be the JAM!! If I didn't have mind already, I'd totally copy off of you :)

  2. I'm going to need to see photographic evidence of this!!

  3. haha oh siovhan you ARE AWESOME/. ps i hope you saw this office this past week... i thought of you!!! if you havent go hulu it now!! all i need is this one night...

  4. you are going to look AWESOME! i can't wait to see how your costume turns out. i think adding dead before any normal cutesy costume totally makes it bad ass.

  5. i havent been on your site in forever. but, i loved the diet dr pepper video. and i might just have to come back to re-watch that tutu making video. sounded very easy and yet my brain will not remember all the directions in this one sitting too late at night.


i've said my piece, now you get to say yours...
