We’re rolling a little differently today. Instead of a character from a scary movie, we’re doing a more festive, family-friendly one. (I’m not gonna go off about how this movie is Anti-Witch Propaganda, but please note that.) Today’s outfit is from the movie Hocus Pocus. Now if I were going all out on this, I’d probably dress as Sarah Sanderson. Or maybe Dani Dennison. But since I’m trying to just use what I already have on hand instead of buying an entirely new outfit, we’re leaning into Allison’s vibe.
This outfit is comprised of a pair of Mossimo bootcut jeans that I got secondhand, an R.Q.T. shirt worn backwards to hide the beading on the front, some Diba brown booties, and an asos oversized sweater that I borrowed from my brother. I had a different beige cardigan I was going to use, but once I saw that his sweater had outside pockets, I thought it would be better.
My hair is my own. Even though it is partially blue, I decided for any characters that have straight brownish/blondish hair I wasn’t going to buy a wig. All I did was part it to the side. For makeup, I only put on some Avon Ultra Color Rich Renewable Inspirational Life lipstick in color Inspiration that I bought when I was an Avon rep under my grandmother many, many moons ago.
For my accessories, I took a pearl necklace I had and added a small circular locket. I also chose a pair of pearl drop earrings that I originally inherited from my partner’s grandmother. They were clip-ons that I changed to have pierced findings.
For my prop, I have a salt container. Mine happens to be empty because we conveniently finished it as I was planning for these blog posts. It might’ve been cooler to actually be pouring out salt as I was spinning around for the photos, but I’m sure everyone is happy to avoid the mess that would have made.
Catch me back here tomorrow for another “work with what you’ve got!” Halloween costume, cosplay outfit idea.
