A Very Handmade Halloween


Temporary Tattoo by Buttonhead
Halloween is coming soon and the hunt is on for the perfect costume.  The mega Halloween stores are popping up everywhere these days.  So off you trudge to stroll down the overwhelming aisles filled with screaming kids chasing each other with fake weaponry.  It's exhausting, expensive and downright hard to find anything unique in these stores.  Nothing worse than showing up at a party wearing the exact same costume as someone else...let alone three or four other people!  Etsy artists are extremely creative and I can almost guarantee that you'll get noticed and complimented with your unique handmade costume. 

Have you ever seen anything as cute as this Bubble Gum Dress by devaniweaver...those gumballs look almost edible!

How about some stitches for your forehead? They will last up to a week...you just might want to leave them on and head into work the next day, hee hee! 

Some spooky gloves with lovely red fingernails can keep your hands warm and add a nice touch to your costume. I think I'd wear these even after Halloween is over.

Etsy.com is full of thousands of great Halloween costumes and accessories. Come take a peek at more of my favorites in my Etsy treasury!
