This year I wanted to be something traditional, and mummys are a traditional halloween costume right? The dress is actually not a dress but two pieces, a top and pencil skirt made out of white stretch cotton. My strands I made out of strips of cheesecloth, then I dipped everything in a bucket of tea to give it an aged feel and then hand sewed for days! Finished the look with some deadish makeup and my bangs in a happy pompadour thanks to Lauren of the bobby pin blog and her wonderful tutorial.
The bf was a very vicious vampire, somehow we managed to not get one picture together all of Halloween. Boo for me.
If you can tell me what movie the title of this post is from, you will forever be the coolest person in my book.
I am just a vintage girl from Los Angeles living in San Antonio with my boyfriend and our 3 dogs. Art, sewing, daydreaming and hunting thrift stores for things from the past keeps me sane.
