Halloween Night Fun as Greek Goddess

Last year I went to a house party for Halloween and it was way too boring, but this year I made a point to head out to DC for some dancing and costume fun. At first, I was going to go as Lady Gaga but then changed my mind and went as a Greek Goddess. Fuz went as a kitty which was kinda ironic bc this was the first time ever. haha.

For my costume, I actually have the white cotton dress bought from F21 during the summer so I used that. All I needed were just few materials from fabric and craft stores to put together my accessories. I made the sleeves, the leaves shoulder strap and the leaves on the headband. Overall I didn’t think it look too bad, except maybe get some sleep! sigh, bags bags, go away! =P

The hair was inspired from this picture. I actually did put in an order for this wig but then last minute canceled it bc I was thinking that I could totally do the hair myself – hehe.

The leaves on the headband was a last minute detail since I didn’t plan on putting them together but worked out great in the end.

I did my friend’s Cleopatra look below. She’s typically not into dramatic makeup so this was a shocker after I was done – haha. She had alot of compliments that night so felt more comfortable with it as the night wore on – haha.

Then after that, I did my friend’s (in green below) hair and we were all set for Park Lounge.

Mr. H came in an amazing costume – most popular of the night although he was sweating bullets under a crowded lounge roof – haha.

Overall it was a fun night but the club was soo packed that it was hard to dance. I mean I suppose I shouldn’t expect any less for halloween night. Hope you all had a great Halloween yesterday!
