I decided on my costume just a few days before our big Halloween bash this past weekend. I went through several other costume ideas and even began making one, but wasn’t particularly excited about it. Since the holiday is one of my favorites and I enjoy dressing up and putting together a costume, I decided not to settle. I started thinking about some of the good films over the past year and remembered one of my favorite characters and costumes of the year – Effie Trinket of The Hunger Games.
After studying some of the movie screen shots and photo shoots with Elizabeth Banks, I realized I already had the basic clothing staples for the look (a brightly colored peplum dress, ribbon and cage-style heels). I ordered a few accessories from Amazon (this wig, the bolero and oversized flowers) and made sure to go over the top with the makeup. These eyelashes were so much fun to wear. I’m tempted to wear the outfit again tomorrow night, but I think I had enough fun this weekend.
Hope you all have a happy Halloween!
