Welcome to my first Halloween Costume Party!

Happy Halloween! I'm so happy that my favorite holiday is finally here! Halloween is the best because everyone gets to dress up and have fun like kids for the day. I think there should be a "dress up" day every month, but maybe that's just me. :) If you can't tell (which I'm sure you can), I'm Hello Kitty this year! I had so much fun putting this costume together. I'm totally a supporter of making your own costumes. It's just more fun that way, plus it allows you to be a bit more creative. ♥
I pieced all of my Hello Kitty acessories (bag, headband, glasses) with a red dress, white knee high tights, and red bow heels. For my makeup, I used an 80's amount of pink blush for my cheeks, yellow eyeshadow for my nose, liquid eyeliner for my whiskers, and pretty red lip butter. This was a super easy costume to put together (thankfully I had most of the items already) and I finally got to dress up as Hello Kitty! :)

I can't wait to see everyone's costumes today! If you're blogging your's, make sure to link up your post below so that you can join in the costume party and everyone else can see what you're dressed up as. I hope everyone has a really fun Halloween! xo. Mandy
