Carrie and Big Costume

As promised, I am posting which last minute Halloween costume I decided to go with.  I decided to go with Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City.  I have always loved her character, and to be honest, I really just wanted a reason to buy a tulle skirt! 

The costume was fairly easy.  I purchased a tulle skirt from sears for only $19 on sale.  I made a ribbon belt out of a roll of ribbon purchased from Michaels, and I purchased a $5 tank from H&M.  All the other items I used were things I already had in my closet.  The hardest part was adding mesh under my skirt to give it more volume.  This was a lot harder than I thought, and I wish I would have added more.  Overall I was happy with how the costume came out.  I am sure half of the people had no idea who I was, but at least there were not a million other Carries out there!  I somehow convinced my boyfriend to dress as big by agreeing to let him walk around with a cigar all night.  Hey, you pick your battles, right?

  2. This is such a cute and original idea. Plus you look cute, put together, and not trashy and slutty like everyone else on Halloween. If I saw you at a party I would've known in an instant who you were. Seriously so adorable. (:
