DIY Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen’s Wedding Dress Costume | Halloween

I am so excited to share this Hunger Games DIY with you. Because it’s Halloween season, I’m feeling all crafty! Of course, the one thing I’d choose to make it Katniss Everdeen‘s wedding dress from Catching Fire. Honestly, when she walked out with the dress, it was absolutely stunning. Something about how detailed, dainty, yet extravagant the wing details are with the elegant voluminous dress made me fall in love with it. 

Obviously, on my budget, I won’t be able to make Katniss’s full dress length, but I decided to go shorter to make it more practical. Unfortunately I don’t have any events to wear this to, but you can def expect me to wear it the first chance I get! I’m so so happy with the results!

Spiderman: Venom Symbiote Make Up Tutorial | Halloween

When reading my requests, I got a request for a “monster“. I also had these really bad ass contacts that I wanted to use for something. SO when thinking of a monster, I automatically thinking of Venom, or the Symbiote. Whenever watching Spiderman either in comics, the animation, or movies, the Venom¬†always fascinated me. I loves how dark and vicious it was. Not to mention, I think Spiderman looks a lot better in black than red, don’t you think?¬†

This was actually one of my first times doing something this ‘theatrical’ in terms of make up or ‘special effects’. It was definitely a learning experience, but tons of fun. It makes me want to try more characters next time.

Bleach: Ichigo Half Hollow Make Up Look | Halloween

Bleach is an anime and manga that’s near and dear to my heart. It is the definition of my childhood. I religiously watched and read it for weeks as it was released. Besides Prince of Tennis, it was what started my addiction to watching animes, haha! Unfortunately I stopped because the fillers drove me crazy. It also taught me not to read ahead with the manga if I plan to continue watching the anime.  However, upon preparing for this video, I actually felt really nostalgic and decided to binge read and watch everything until the most recent chapters and episodes. I have to say: Ichigo’s final form in the anime is pretty bad ass.

DIY Halloween Costume | Totoro (My Neighbour Totoro)

Totoro is a character from the movie “My Neighbour Totoro“. His character is so well known that I knew about him and who he is without ever watching the movie for years. Totoro is such a simple character: happy, lazy, sleepy, cute, and kind, making it no surprise he’s the favourite character of many! I knew I had to make a costume because he is so iconic, and who doesn’t want to be all cozy for Halloween in a giant sweater?! No uncomfortable, tight, or high maintenance problems here! Plus, if it’s cold where you live like it is in Canada, you’ll love this costume!
