My first DIY Hallowe’en costume was a success! I feel pretty proud for putting it all together. It wasn’t as hard or tricky as I had thought, and I actually enjoyed the whole process.
In preparing for going out for the Hallowe’en festivities and parties I contemplated making a bird mask, but ran out of time and energy. So I opted instead for makeup and Hallowe’en facepaint but I feel like it might have been too much. A plain old masquerade mask would’ve probably done the trick. Lis was La Calavera Catrina of Dia de los Muertos or Day of the dead. Her costume was pretty much a traditional scary costume. It was easy to throw together and yet still awesome.
