Happy Monday! But, let's backtrack and talk about Halloweekend. I have always loved the circus, and my favorite era would have the be the roaring '20s, so I decided to go out this year as a vintage circus performer. I loosely based the idea off of one of my favorite books, Water for Elephants (great movie, too). The sequin leotard is a thrifted gem, finished with a headpiece and boa from the costume store. My key prop was a hula hoop—you know, for my lions and tigers to jump through. And my bob felt pretty period-appropriate. All in all the look cost about $25. I had a blast with friends out in NYC, which is thankfully one of the only places in the world you can go out in public sans pants without catching too many sideways glances. What was the best costume you saw this year?
