Halloween Zombie Costume DIY

Halloween is definitely one of my favorite holidays, but I've always struggled with costume ideas. Procrastination is my enemy. Also I've outgrown the "sexy" insert animal, profession, etc. types of costumes. Though over the past few years I've come up with my own category, decidedly alluring, yet grotesque/scary. It's a careful balance to make people simultaneously fear for their lives and want to come home with you. So for the next few weeks I'm going to feature my scary sexy last minute costume ideas for those that love to procrastinate and scrambling on hallows eve for a costume!

My first feature is one of my faves. This was the year Walking Dead premiered and zombies were all the rage! I made this costume the day of! All you need is to paint your face with lighter foundation, use some purple and green eye shadow under the eyes, toss some fake blood everywhere and voila! For the scars Sean used strip of toilet paper and liquid latex to adhere to my skin and smooth over the edges so it looked seamless. I was suprised at how effective it was!

Old Shirt splattered w/ fake blood
Black lacy bra
White boy shorts
Wellies (you know so I can step over dead bodies w/o getting dirty)

Light foundation
Regular eye shadows and gel eyeliners

Special Effects:
Toilet Paper
liquid latex

Photo Diary Cayman Islands

Pin It Now!
I've been to the Caribbean multiple times but never have I ever seen water as clear as the Cayman Islands. It was simply an amazing experience!

Must do's include:
Renting a car and driving around the island
Rending a bike and biking up 7 mile beach with many beach stops
Eating Conch
Going to the Bio Bay to see millions of glowing creatures in the sea (this tour only happens when the moon is a sliver so check schedules! And remember to bring snorkel gear to jump into the water, the experience is surreal as your body is lit up by tiny micro organisms reacting to your movement)

The next day was probably one of the best days of the trip. We lounged on a yacht while visiting Star Fish Point, Sting Ray City, and some snorkel spots.

DVF on the beach

Pin It Now!
This little DVF silk blouse I picked up at Nordstrom Rack made the perfect sunshield in the Caymans. The drapey front made it less plain and full sleeves have a piratey effect. And the all silk fibers kept me cool while lounging around the resort in the Caymans a few months ago. More to come on the entire trip...including a little video we made.

Sometimes it's so easy to just throw on a romper and some bold jewelry for a fun date night. Especially this one by Toby in an unexpected cornflower blue with deep v neck and open back. Onesies are definitely for adults too!
