It's Halloween and I thought I'd share a really quiz and easy D.I.Y. costume which I do plan on wearing. Criminals beware, for I will be Bat Girl~!! This is cheaper than buying a superhero costume, and this can be adjusted for any other superhero. Also I included a simple tutorial for my makeup. So let's start~~!
Next sew the bat symbol onto the yellow oval. If you can't sew, just use fabric glue or a glue gun to stick them together.
To attach it to the costume, just use a safety pin to secure it onto whatever you're wearing. Or you can sew on a jump ring, string it on to a cord or chain and wear it as a necklace.
Now for the actual costume I decided to wear this black skater dress from Forever21. The material has a spandex/superhero costume look and feel to it, so I thought this would be perfect. Obviously I have my bat symbol on my dress and I love how it turned out~~!! For my "utility belt" I just put on this black one with gold detailing. If you have a yellow belt or ribbon, you can use that instead. If it's cold where you live, where some leggings or thick black tights. I decided just to wear some sheer skin toned ones. Any black shoes or boots work for this look. I decided to wear these black combat boots that I got at DSW.
For my makeup, I just did my regular face makeup routine. The eyes can be made darker, but I wore this to school, so I didn't want to go too crazy. I started by applying an eyeshadow primer from Elf all over my lids.
Then I lightly filled in my brows with my Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil.
I decided to use some eyshadows from my new Too Faced Matte Eye palette (I do plan to review this soon.) I started by applying the color Fresh Linen, a matte pale pink, all over my lid and up to the brow bone.
Next I blended the color Pebbles, a matte mid-toned gray to my crease and outer lid. Make sure you blend it nicely and create an even transition.
Lastly I took the navy blue eyeshadow called London Fog and used it to lightly line my lower lash line.
I decided to line my eyes, since I thought it would make the look more dramatic. I used my Jordana Fabu-Liner in black and did a simple winged eyeliner.
Because I didn't want my eyes too dark, I lined my waterline with a nude liner from NYX. Last part for the eyes was applying mascara to the upper and lower lashes, I used Maybelline's The Rocket.
For my lips I decided to keep them simple and I used a simple light pink lipstick. You can wear a dark berry or black lipstick if you're really daring. And now we're finished~!!
I hope you guys enjoyed my costume and makeup. Share you costumes with me on Twitter or my Facebook page, I'd love to see them~! I wish everyone a Happy Halloween and that you all have a fun night. Thank you guys so much for reading and I hope to see you at my next post.
