Halloween: Everyday Angel

Angel in Everyday

Today was a lovely and wonderfully relaxing day. Halloween is one of my favorite holiday so I made sure to enjoy everything I could. I still had to go to work as usual, bright and early in the morning, but there is no way I was gonna miss dressing up. Every year I want to spend hours upon hours making super intricate and amazing costumes, but rarely do I have even the time to think up the intricate idea to then spend forever creating. This year I had a slightly more intricate goddess costume for our Halloween party but for work I wanted to still keep it appropriate. I just happen to have ended up collecting blazers and I thought that with this white one (not pictured) I could easily put together this costume.

I think it is so simple to create fun costumes out of just the regular clothes in your closet. Like with this one, I thought of a theme, angelic white, and quickly I could just pull out a collection of white clothes and see what worked. This idea could be done for so many other themes as well. In the simple colors I could imagine a devil, cat, hunter just off the top of my head. But you’re costume isn’t complete with out the unusual accessory. I made this halo out of some simple gold wire from Joanne’s and a little bit of fluffy white yarn. The wire was a size 20 so I didn’t even need any special tools to bend it into its shape, and it’s been perfect all day. As I write i’m still wearing it, though I’ve changed out of my angelic whites.

As the sun started to go down I sat myself up on our front steps with a bowl of candy, a magazine, and my camera. I kept taking photos to keep my remote active, but didn’t manage to capture any wonderful pictures of the few trick-or-treater’s we got. I did snag this awesome one of the boyfriend, though he is much too tall to fit into my camera frame.

    • Thanks Oteea! When I planned the outfit in my head I could have sworn they were all the same shade, so I just went with it and got lucky. 🙂

  2. This is the cutest, most practical costume ever! I love that you just created this out of items in your closet. I definitely need to keep this as inspiration for next year!

    • Thanks so much Elana! I didn’t realize how easy it would be, but I guess I rarely realize how many clothes I have. I’m thinking of doing a simple one like this again next year too. It leaves more time for the real purpose of Halloween, eating candy!
