As you know, paper is my medium of choice, so for today’s installment of costumes inspired by Bath and Body Worksfragrance mists, we are creating 2 costumes made entirely from paper and I LOVE how they turned out. If I had a bazillion costume parties to dress for, I’d be every single costume we create but these one are closer to the top of the list. First, we created an oversized origami crane inspired by their Japanese Cherry Blossom fragrance as well as a bouquet of flowers costume inspired by their Hello Beautiful and Sweet Pea fragrances.
As you are well aware by now, I love everything about costumes and I certainly don’t believe in wearing them just for Halloween either (exhibit A). But, social norms say that Halloween is the only appropriate time of the year to really go at it so we are going nuts this year. We teamed up with Ali Hynek who gave birth 6 months ago to the most beautiful and cuddle-worthy triplets of all time, Penelope, Ethan, and Alejandra (Sweet Pea as they are affectionately known on her Instagram feed). We spent two glorious days shooting these sweet peas and I couldn’t have been more in heaven (give me all the cuddles!!!!!). We’ve got three batches of costumes starting with this first one: quick and easy costumes for you baby. And check out 3 flower costumes for baby and 3 celebrity costumes ideas here. Read on →
Tilly from That Playhouse created the most beautifully adorable cotton candy costume (along with a few other rad costumes!) and I couldn’t help but make Miss Cotton Candy This Girl this week. So, of course, This Girl needs some cotton candy to nibble along with a cotton candy themed play room, no?
1.Every Halloween dinner party needs an invitation, of course. Danielle Kroll designed and illustrated this gorgeous black and white skull invitation. You can download it and print it off yourself here. See the original post here.
2. A party is not complete without a cake! And Halloween is no exception. ME Hammond created this vanilla bean skull cake, which I have dreamt about to this day. Get the recipe here and buy the skull form here.
3. Sit your guests down to a beautiful table setting along with a gorgeously illustrated menu card care of Danielle Kroll. Print it off here and see the original post here.
4. Skull name tags are a ghoulish way to sit your guests and establish the mood. Print off the name tags here. And see the original post here.
5. In addition to gorgeously macabre flowers, we made some subtle ghosts that scream out of the table runner. Learn how to make them here.
