Bridgerton Costume – Regency Ball Style
Happy Halloween month! I’ve returned to (hopefully) bring you some Halloween inspo. This past weekend I attended The Bridgerton Experience – a regency-themed ball. It was pretty spectacular, and nearly everyone really went all out with their regency-inspired looks. This was the Daphne Bridgerton-esque Bridgerton costume I put together for the occasion. Everything I got was very affordable – call that ballin’ on a budget. Literally. (more…)
Jasmine Cosplay Makeup + Costume
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I’m so excited to share this Princess Jasmine cosplay transformation with you, I’ve been planning it forever. So leave your homes behind for a moment and take a quick magic carpet ride with me to Agrabah. (more…)
Cruella de Vil Cosplay Makeup + Costume
Cruella de Vil is one BAD BITCH. So of course I eventually did a Cruella de Vil cosplay and makeup transformation. Of all the Disney villains, Cruella is probably the most fabulous, with her big fur coat, slinky black dress, blood red lipstick, and elbow-length gloves. She’s a fashion icon AND has hilariously insulting one-liners.
Once I had the whole Cruella outfit on, I definitely felt my inner bad bitch come out. (more…)
Ariana Grande Costume + Makeup
I’m back, wearing all the bronzer I own for this Ariana Grande costume and makeup transformation. I promise this is the closest I’ll ever get to blackfishing. 👀Aside from her occasional bouts of cultural appropriation, I’m a fan of Ariana Grande, especially this more recent chapter of her musical and style evolution.
But that’s not why I did this Ariana Grande costume. What happened was this. I ordered a pink oversized sweatshirt to lounge in during quarantine, and when I tried it on, the thought struck me to do a full Ariana Grande look, since she often wears oversized sweatshirts and thigh-high boots. Once the idea took root in my brain, there was no going back. Classic me. (more…)
Maleficent Cosplay Makeup + Costume
Well, well. It is I, the world’s worst procrastinator, here to bring you the Maleficent cosplay makeup tutorial I meant to share last October when I took these photos. And what a different world it was! Now we’re in lockdown because of a global pandemic. (more…)
Shego Cosplay + Costume – Kim Possible
Welcome back! As promised, here’s my Shego cosplay from this year’s double Halloween costume. Want to see my Kim Possible cosplay instead? Go here.
Don’t know who Shego is? She’s the iconic baddie from Disney’s Kim Possible. She hurls green magic just as easily as she hurls snappy insults. (more…)
13 Halloween Costume Ideas for Women
Let me start by saying this post isn’t just Halloween costume ideas for women – it’s Halloween costume ideas for anyone who wants to dress up as a woman/female character for Halloween. But the SEO ranking for that would be utter sh*t, so please forgive me. All genders are welcome to dress up as whoever and whatever they want – it’s 2019 y’all.
With just over a month to go before Halloween, it’s a good time to start planning your Halloween costume. Here are 13 costumes and cosplays I’ve done so far, to hopefully help inspire you – whether you’re going to a Halloween party or dressing up at home for fun. (more…)
Ariel Cosplay + Makeup – The Little Mermaid
Sebastian said it right: the human world IS a mess. That’s probably why most of us wanted to be mermaids as kids after watching Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Heck, even to this day, anytime I swim underwater I imagine I’m a mermaid. Am I alone in this?
The grass is always greener on the other side, I guess. Or the…seaweed? Anyway, it was only a matter of time before I attempted to do an Ariel cosplay from The Little Mermaid. (more…)
Elsa Cosplay + Makeup from Frozen
Felt cute, might freeze the town later. Idk.
I didn’t exactly plan to do an Elsa cosplay, but found a great platinum blonde wig on sale and the ideas started flying, so I hope you like it. And if you’re not a fan of Frozen, I hope you can let it go. *ba-dum-tss* (more…)
Scar Lion King Drag Makeup + Cosplay
Oh you thought I only cosplayed Disney Princesses, huh? In honour of The Lion King coming out today, I decided to do a little Scar drag makeup and cosplay.
I didn’t want to turn myself into a literal lion, so instead I drew inspiration from elements of Scar’s look in the animated Lion King movie and created this androgynous, humanoid Scar look. It’s a big departure for me, but honestly? I’m kind of digging it. (more…)
Jessica Rabbit Cosplay + Drag Makeup
Good morning class, welcome to Male Gaze 101. Please take your seats and turn to page 52.
I have so many questions when it comes to Jessica Rabbit, like how does she remain upright? And why is she not actually a rabbit? Her husband, Roger Rabbit, is a full rabbit, ears and all. Are we meant to understand that a rabbit married a human woman, and she took his surname of “Rabbit”? But alas, these are questions for another day. Let’s set aside our critical lens for a moment and focus instead on how to transform into one of the sexiest and most absurd animated characters that ever lived: Jessica Rabbit. (more…)
Hermione Granger Cosplay / Costume
Hiiiiiii, welcome to my first full costume reveal of the year: a Hermione Granger cosplay! I’ve been sitting on this secret for months, so I’m thrilled to finally be able to share it with you. (That’s why my hair’s so big – it’s full of secrets.) (more…)
