This year for Halloween I was a BAT.
I’ve never been one for store bought costumes. I love creating my own look to get things just right! This costume consisted of a thrifted top, with panels of fabric sewn on the back & arms for wings. I created the ears using some pleather fabric I hot glued together into little pouches and put a thin wire inside for support. I wrapped the ends of wires around a plain black headband I bought at Target, and secured them with some more hot glue. The mask was a black masquerade mask I purchased at Michaels and trimmed down/reshaped. I paired these DIY items with some American Apparel leggings, some knee high black combat boots [similar], and this silver spike necklace from Romwe. I wore Va Va Violet Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick.
