Halloween is right around the corner and even though I don’t celebrate the actual holiday, due to beliefs, I do still love the idea of dress up being acceptable. I always love creating outfits and even as a child I loved dressing up as a princess, which is why for Halloween I prefer to choose the less spooky options for my costumes. Black cats for Halloween can be deemed as a bit scary, but as I’m very much a cat person and adore them, I don’t see it that way in the slightest.
Last year, I dressed as a cat for my Halloween costume, and this year I was deciding between four different looks. A cat again, but with different accessories, Tinkerbell, Belle or Jessica Rabbit. If I could, I would definitely choose Tinkerbell or Belle. It’s always been a dream of mine to dress as these two characters and I am hoping when I eventually get to go to Disneyland I might be able to! I haven’t been able to find a costume that looked good enough to qualify as these two characters though and I don’t think I would suit Jessica Rabbit since I’m blonde, so I decided on being a cat again. Unlike my last outfit though where I just wore a pair of ears with a black top and skinny jeans, I’m actually going all out and wearing the look I created above! I’ve ordered the tail, gloves and bow tie to go with my shiny leggings, knee high boots and faux leather peplum top. I’m also planning on having red lipstick and cat like eyes. I have to say I am most excited by wearing a tail though, ha ha! I’ve always thought they were fun!
