Wacky Weekend

Before my husband and I got sick over the weekend, we went to a themed housewarming party. Though we were sent the invitation over two weeks ago, I didn't get my "Wacky Wardrobe" costume going until an hour before we had to leave the house-- which just goes to show that my slacker ways will stay with me forever.

Prior to that day, I messed around with the idea of fabricating a dress made out of comic books. Then I thought I'd just go as a ganguro girl. When my brain got fried just planning out the steps to complete each of those looks, I went more minimalistic and chose Hello Kitty in her classic blue jumpsuit/ yellow short sleeve combo.

The resemblance is uncanny, I know.


People in the party wore underwear over their heads, towel capes, or (the most common one of all) plaid over plaid. My husband made a suit out of bubble wrap, which I couldn't help popping all night. Did that sound dirty? I assure you, it wasn't. Maybe.

My fon fon ru, suited up. Because he doesn't want his face on my blog,
he gets a skull sticker over his face, which I am sure he'll appreciate.
I attempted a more "dolly" look for the makeup, tacking on a lot of foundation to make the skin look flawless. I also went really heavy with the blush and topped the look off with a bold pink lip. I made sure to define my eyes and even added some drawn on lower lashes to make the eyes look large and fake.

  20. You guys are too cute! Okay about that bubble wrap, I wouldn't be able to resist the popping urges either, and yes that sounds sooo naughty but you know what I mean :D

    I love the way you kind of made a human Hello Kitty out of yourself :D It isn't over bearing and too costume-y, I hate being too costume-y so I keep on having to think really hard when I go to parties like that. But I love it super super adorable!

    You look gorgeous Laura! :D

  28. I'm not gonna lie, your costume is so ADORABLE I would actually wear that outfit out normally. That blue jumper is so pretty (love the color on you) and matched with yellow and white tights makes it perfect!

  31. Hee hee! I think you could actually pull this outfit off as a regular outfit without the bow! The bubble wrap outfit, maybe not so much. But I love your makeup too!
