#Bloggoween is finally here! I'm so excited to read all your lovely posts, and here's my little DIY for those of you who have absolutely no budget, costume or time to spare. In fact, the total cost of my outfit was just £1 and that's only because I couldn't bear to part with my beloved black tee. It's perfect for all ages and takes less than half an hour (make-up included!)- are you listening yet?

First up we have the no sew ripped rib cage tee than takes about 15 minutes to prepare. It's is ridiculously easy to make - you'll never be without a costume again! All you need is...

An old black t-shirt
(Optional: Ruler and Chalk/Gel Pen for precision)

Simply trace a rough rib cage shape onto the back of the t-shirt and cut across the horizontal lines - leaving the 'spine' in tact. Now 'stretch each of the horizontal strips until taught. The messier the cutting and stretching the better! If you have time remember to stick the t-shirt into the wash before wearing to remove those pesky guidelines!


Now for the makeup - I don't think I've ever completed a look so quickly in my life! Take a matte black eyeshadow and sweep it over the eyes and in the contours of your cheeks, blending well. A simple take on the skull. If you have any black lipstick that's great, but don't be afraid to reach for your favorite eyeliner if in need. If you have a bit more time on your hands, I'd highly recommend some false lashes pairs with a bit of glitter!

As for the hair, mine is naturally wavy and constantly messy - it usually resembles a bird's nest. So it really wasn't mush of a stretch to sweep it up into a messy high ponytail and draw it forward over the rest of my head to give me more of a frizzbob look. I added the bow for cuteness.

And that's all there is to it really! I'm sure you've painstakingly spent hours fiddling over the teeniest smudges por out of place hair but year after year I find myself with the same costume dilemma - what on earth do I wear with an hour to go?! I hope you enjoyed reading my #Bloggoween post and I that it helps some of you.
