Day 3 - 31 Days of Halloween - 31 Days of Hand-Made Costumes, Styled Costumes and Costume Tutorials.

Updated: Oct 4, 2023

Autumn is my favorite time of year, the weather starts to cool, the leaves begin to change and the month of October is full of Harvest Festivals, Haunted Houses and of course, HALLOWEEN!

This year, I've put together the 31 Days of Halloween, 31 hand-created or styled costumes in addition to some costume tutorials. One costume will be posted each day of October on my Instagram account and I will have a corresponding blog post here. Many of the costumes I have made, but there isn't always time to make a costume from scratch, sometimes you have to make do with a "styled" costume which is a costume you create with items on hand or with minimal purchases.

Day 3 - Flesh Wounds - Years ago, I found a cool tutorial online that showed me how to make realistic looking wounds using toilet paper and Elmer's glue. Add some coloring and fake blood and you have a pretty realistic flesh wound. I think they turned out totally grotesque, don't you?

Day 2 - The Zombie Family - Learning how to make fake flesh wounds became useful when we did a zombie crawl one year, it was a lot of fun to dress up and pretend that we were part of the un-dead.

Day 1 - The Madd Hatter - Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories and I love the different adaptations that have been created over the years. The Madd Hatter is one of my favorite characters. I styled this costume several years ago for a company Halloween celebration and I actually won the costume contest that year. Most of the items were things that I had on hand, I only purchased the tights to add to the costume. The hat/fascinator had been purchased a few years before, but I did make some changes to it to better fit my "vision".

Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
