With one of my favorite Holidays right around the corner, one thing I always get excited for is putting together a costume for all of the Halloween festivities. The store bought costumes can get a bit pricey and let's admit it, they are bit overrated to spend all of that money to wear it one time and then sit in your closet. This is the time to let your creative juices flow and to see what you can create yourself. Pull together items you already have in your closet or around your house to create a one of a kind costume that you KNOW no one else will be wearing at the party!
One easy DIY costume that you can create at home is this masquerade costume. All you really need for this is a masquerade mask which you can find for really cheap like this one that is less than $10. I channeled my inner Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl for this look with a navy romper and statement jacket, and added a pair of trendy sock boots to finish off the outfit. Since the weather always keeps us guessing on Halloween, take the jacket off if it is still warm out.
