Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Hey guys! So if you're anything like me, it means you procrastinate a lot. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot. But that pretty much means any high school/college aged student. I'm sitting in my room, wasting my night on the internet, and I realized that tomorrow is Halloween. TOMORROW IS HALLOWEEN AND I STILL DON'T HAVE AN EXACT COSTUME YET. So here is my little collection of costumes that could easily be made at home!

Femme de le Futur

While this costume isn't exactly made from items sitting around my house, I'm absolutely in love with the idea of doing a sort of 60s-esque futuristic costume. That's why I went with the big, round shades and the turtleneck! I'm definitely going to have to be this for Halloween next year... Unless I get my hands on a holographic skirt by Saturday

Alex DeLarge

I am in love with this novel and movie. I first read it last year around this time, and I just recently reread the book. In fact I was Alex DeLarge for a party last Friday, and it turned out wonderfully. Granted no one knew who I was, which was a downside. I kept hearing,"Did you forget to do one eye of makeup or something?" Sigh. Anyway, if you haven't seen/read A Clockwork Orange, I completely recommend it. Whether you're a malchikiwick or a young devotchka, get together with your droogs and just put together an all-white outfit at the heigth of fashion, a black hat upon your gulliver, a black staff to hold your nozh, and don't forget your black boots to take part in a little of the ultra-violence. ;)


If your closet looks anything like mine, all you have to do to recreate this outfit is reach in and grab the first dress you see! All jokes aside, this look is actually pretty easy to pull together, and it all works with a good cat-eye and red lips. Don't forget your apron and cookbook!

AHS Witch

This is not your typical witch outfit. This is inspired by the new season of American Horror Story; Zoe wears something similar to this in the first episode, and I fell in love with her outfit the first moment I saw it. Wear all black with a pointed booty to pull in the witchy vibe, and don't forget your wide-rimmed, black hat and smoky eye!


So this one may seem lackluster compared to the other four, but I promise it isn't! It's a dual costume. You can be either an elf or a hippie, depending on your preference. A hippie would add maybe a head wrap and sandals, whereas an elf would add a cape and elf ears. It's adjustable to your preferences!

These are some different costumes I put together that you can create with things (mostly) out of your closet. I hope it helps some last minute people like myself! I'll talk to you guys soon. :)

Growing Old is Getting Old.

Hello again my friends! This mainly going to be a text post, but I wanted to put a picture with it, so I put a collage I'm working on for my photography class. It's still in its infancy, but I rather like it. The theme I've given it is "anxiety," and I'm having a hard time adding more to it. I don't know, I think I may add pictures of aspects of my life that are stressing me out the most. The hardest thing about this project is that all of the pictures have to be taken/drawn by me. But a challenge is always good! I have to make at least 3 other collages, and I'm thinking of doing one about evolution (me throughout the years), gender roles (something to do with housewives etc), desaturated (where everything will be in different shades of the same hue), and lightness (which will deal with life and light and stuff. I don't know how to explain it). I'm really excited because I love collaging.

ANYWAY, to the point of this post. I finally submitted the last part of one of my college applications, my official ACT score, and I realized how old I've actually gotten. I cannot believe that in a years time I'll be off in college starting my life. It's incredibly strange, delightful, and stressful. It's hard to imagine being prepared for all of it. I'm not sure. All I know is that I'm excited for what life holds for me, but I don't know if I'm ready to move on. Maybe I'm over-exaggerating, maybe I'm not. I won't know until I get there. I just know I want to make the most of where I am right now.

Fall Floral Crowns

Hey guys! Happy Monday ;P
Today I finally listed two autumn-inspired floral crowns I made forever ago! You can find them on my Etsy shop, WearableWishes, here. The first one is the one featured in the photo above. It has cute little sparkly pumpkins and berries all over it. In the corner there's a little black crow hanging out on the crown.

The end of it is tied off with a pink ribbon to make it adjustable for all head sizes and shapes!

How cute is that!? The direct link to this floral crown is here.

This next crown is comparable to the first in ADORABLENESS. It's a 'lil pumpkin crown. Who doesn't want a pumpkin crown!? I almost didn't want to sell this one because I love it so much. The direct link to this one is here.

I also made a video for my sister as part of her wedding present. It's really cute and you can check it out down below :)

Have a lovely night!
