Black Pants Forever 21 | Suede Black Boots Steve Madden | Apron and Glasses DIY | Yellow Long Sleeve Shirt Amazon
Happy Halloween/ Feliz Dia de los Muertos!
I wore this costume to work on Thursday. The apron is handmade by yours truly. Earlier this month, two of my coworkers and I were brainstorming costume ideas. We decided to be Minions from Despicable Me. We wanted to keep the cost of our costume very low, which is why we decided to DIY our aprons, goggles, and I ordered the yellow shirts for all of use through Amazon using my reward points.
My coworker, Bernadette, made the apron pattern, the pocket for all of our aprons, and placed the eye on the eyeglasses made entirely out of foam and paper. She is a mini Martha Stewart when it comes to crafts in our office. I am surprised I was able to finish this on time, but it is actually held together in some areas with pins and even fabric glue! I love buying clothes, not making them, but it was really fun trying something new and I can't wait for my next DIY project.
Our group costume won first place in the costume contest at work. There wasn't a huge turnout of costumes, but I think we might inspire a larger turnout for next year. I spent the evening doing laundry and coming up with my costume for the Trendy Halloween 2013 party on Friday. I thought it required dressing up, so Armando and I went as Carrie and Mr. Big. Some photos on Instagram @willbakeforshoes show my outfit details. It was so fun and I can't wait to share the photos from the event in my next post!
Hope you had/are having a fun Halloween weekend and taking advantage of the candy that is on clearance!
Until next time,
