Halloween costume ideas: Roy Lichtenstein pop art

I can’t tell you guys how long I’ve been waiting to do this costume!! Years, and years, and years! The dot faced ladies of Roy Litchenstein have been making the Halloween rounds for the last few seasons. I’m so glad I could finally bring it all together to get photographed! Next time I’ll find the yellow wig 🙂

I learned the hard way, of how to put the liner on my lips – but it was too late and deep into the thing to clean it off and start all over. Eyebrows were definitely on fleek for this pop art!

Halloween costume ideas: Little Edie Grey Gardens

Put on your dance shoes!

So this totally is probably the least unsexy Halloween costume ever, but if you’re a quirky film nerd or even a history nerd, you’ll hopefully recognize this right away. The documentary film Grey Gardens has really left a footprint in contemporary film and modern times, with all the themes swimming in one movie. From hoarding, to the Kennedy’s, cat ladies, mental health issues, mother-daughter relationships, self-esteem, you name it, this movie covered it all.

I always felt bad for Little Edie, so this is my homage to her. You probably wont get any dates in this costume – this is definitely one of those laugh-attack inducing costumes!

If you see me on Halloween day, this is what I’ll most likely be wearing!

Halloween costume ideas: Pussy Riot

As a feminist I wouldn’t necessarily want to call this a Pussy Riot “costume” but maybe better to refer to it as a Pussy Riot supporter?! And since Halloween group costumes are all the rage now, gather up your friends and you can all do this together!

I wasn’t sure how to pose for these photo sets – but considering we live in a censored world where women aren’t supposed to do anything of substance some times, I thought it would be best to channel the “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”

Halloween costume ideas: Maria Felix

Do you already know what you want to be for Halloween?! Did you like my previous one? 🙂 Now lets move to another continent and another language (close to my heart.) As someone of Mexican heritage, classic Mexican cinema is just something that lives in your home, and your parents will tell you that this was the best era of movies of course! Maria Felix was the classic heroine of the golden era of films – her beauty unrivaled. She was known for being bold and vivacious (with a matching tongue) in a time when women weren’t really allowed to.

Like her contemporary, Elizabeth Taylor, she was in love with jewels and worked with Cartier to make those sparkly dreams come true. Just to get an idea of her tastes, click here to see images of items photographed from her vast and super glam estate! La Doña has left her fingerprint in modern day style, even though she doesn’t get the recognition she deserves!

While I definitely don’t have the Cartier jewels to pile on like she did – I did have plenty of costume pieces to layer. As a person who wears very little (and mostly the same pieces every day), this was really fun!
