i pulled this costume together one hour before my friend's halloween party last night, with just $2 in paint and a $5 lipstick. the dress is my h&m maxi that i wear all the time, and the belt is just a random rope. it was obviously inspired by rodarte s/s 2010 (and a recent post by lisa from lisaplace), and yes, i did have help with the body art - i chose the designs, and my mom painted (thanks mom!). needless to say, i had a blast being a "post-apocolyptic warrior princess".
costume success :)

here's a funny pic of me and my cooler of diet coke. yo, that's how i roll at parties :D
my boyfriend is in the background as mario, and his best friend was luigi. they were too freaking hilarious together. proof here.


i meant to announce this friday morning, but i got to busy...the winner of the shoulder chain giveaway is brigitte from california! congrats girl, la dama will be sending you the amazing piece of body jewelry very soon :)

Follow if you seek style.

your costume is EPIC. beautiful. i'd like to see this topped.

i'm thinking an awesome idea would be a fashion blogger halloween party of sorts. i can only imagine everyone showing up inspired by the past runway shows. how awesome would that be??

thanks sofia! i've seen some pretty awesome costumes in my day, so i'm sure mine can be topped, but i'm pretty happy with how it came out! and that would be one helluva party. epic, some may say. LOL. :)

RedHead said...

Amazing costume, very Rodarte-style tattoos, is that what you were going for? I remember going to a party as Keira Knightley in King Arthur (as a Celtic warrior princess - think woad dye tattoos, animal skins and leather) and spent a fun hour drawing on myself with blue paint.
