Atomic Blonde Hallowe’en

DIY, style

I’ve always loved dressing up and Hallowe’en is my favourite holiday. This year was an ode to Charlize Theron in Atomic Blonde. Badass. Stylish. Cool. Strong. Smart.

What is your fave costume, past or present?


DIY Rainbow Halloween Pumpkin

DIY, style

For a very pretty, not so spooky Hallowe’en stoop we got local pumpkins and some rainbow marbles. With the trusty drill and some elbow grease we created a glowing rainbow lantern that looks just as pretty with battery operated tea lights. Now we will just wait for the sun to go down.

* drill holes slightly larger than the marbles, make sure they are free of pumpkin guts, then pop them in place!

Happy Halloween: Tin Man Costume DIY


It’s Halloween again, my very favourite holiday! I am going out this year with some friends as the cast of The Wizard of Oz. I’m taking on the Tin Man!



This realistic film version of Tin Man is pretty intricate and I’m going to be going for a more representational nod to the character (also more feminine). With my posse I’m sure it will all make sense!


I’m going to steal the brilliant idea that this little guy had (or his parent) and get some dryer venting materials to add to my ensemble.

Other material: funnel. Hat. Ax. Tape.    



Make up is where I get to be really creative. I can go for the authentic film version, or… take a looser interpretation for the evening’s festivities!


There are a few options out there. Both seem awesome!

And the final result:   

Wicked Witch with cell phone. Very 2015. 

Colonel Saunders joined the merry bunch. There’s no thing like friends!
