Dia De Los Muertos Bride

27 October 2015

With just a few days left before Halloween, we wanted to share one of Erica's costumes for this year!

She used several makeup items; half from her own everyday makeup, and a few Halloween bits to create a half glam, half undead bride!  She's actually wearing her wedding dress!  Then we took advantage of this fabulous look and snapped a few pics.  Doesn't she look gorgeous?!

Stay tuned for a little behind-the-scenes video we also shot on this day. 
And Happy Halloween everybody!


DIY : Skull Decor

24 October 2015

Halloween is one of the best holidays to decorate for! You can get so creative and crafty - from fun and festive to creepy and scary. And there's so much inspiration for Halloween from movies to cultural traditions.

Stephanie wanted to create different skulls - sugar skulls, a skull vase, and a Goonie inspired skull. So on our last LovelyUs Saturday together we trekked over to Jo Ann Fabrics, Hobby Lobby, and Christmas Tree Shop. We picked up some craft skulls, paints, flowers and embellishments.

The actual crafting night was the best! We brought all of our supplies to our mom's house and got crafting.  We played Hocus Pocus, (probably the best Halloween movie of all time), while we each decorated a skull. Steph and I worked on the smaller skulls and pearl skull, while Mom worked on the turquoise skull, and skull vase.

In the end, we had a great night of crafting and the skulls came out better than we expected.

Stephanie used the skulls around her home to decorate for Halloween.  The skull vase with the red eyes looks amazing in her black dining room.  She's going for a scary/sophisticated vibe.

How do you decorate your home for Halloween, do you try to scare the neighborhood?
