19 Days to Go: Halloween Prepping!

Hi Hi Hi!! Today was a little work-in-progress day that was completely Halloween themed!  I was working on a few costumes for a segment with the local LA CBS affiliate, including the below piece using a fab, black lace appliqué...

...along with an orange straw hat that I spray painted black...

...and some flowers I tried to dye darker.  Unfortunately they were a bit too polyester infused, so they only turned a dim grey.

I couldn't just stick to the dark color palette, so I decided that some yellow patent stilettos needed a covering of Krylon's Glitter Blast.

The shoes were totally glitzing in the sun!!  Not to be confused with Glitzy the Pig from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which I just can't stop watching!

I was a stichin' fiend all day and will have a new ensemble ready to wear tomorrow!  I must say that I'm super jazzed about all the H'ween costumes I've been working on.  I think that you'll enjoy a little chunk of October devoted to dress up!!

In the interim, I'm doing another mid-week giveaway of a fab Smashbox eye/cheek palette as well as a lip gloss duo, which the lighter of the two is a staple in my makeup kit!
