Happy Halloween everyone!!! This year I wanted to make my own costume for Halloween. While wandering through DIY costume ideas, this Roy Lichtenstein's comic book girl costume idea blew me away. So, I put together my own version of this look. I purchased my dress from an eBay vintage store, I got a make up kit, and some black tape from Pearl. I had a red belt with a bow in the back and I wore that with the dress. Make-up took me around 40 minutes, the hardest part of the makeup was doing the red dots, it took me a looong time to paint them one by one:) I used the round back of a make up brush and applied red paint on my face one by one. Patience is the key here. After all, it was worth spending a lot of time on the costume... Hope you get inspired from this post as well...

  5. More specifically, just such a wThey went out to a coffee shop to discuss the book, and Michael Kors Lisa told her that she hadn��t been able to finish it. Simpson told her she would like the ending. Over the years Lisa had an on-and-off relationship with Simpson, but it would be closer chanel outlet in some ways than the one she had with her father.
