Before we move on to the month of November, I MUST tell you about my Halloween costume [DIY, of course]. Last week, I knew I was going to dress up for Halloween, but I just could NOT think of what to be, then it just clicked. I thought to be one of my favorite artists: RIHANNA.
So then came the googling of what things I could make to be her for Halloween. Ideas were flowing from left to right, and then I came across the Tom Binns custom painted bikini outfit she wore in her Loud Tour.
So off I went to Hobby Lobby to find what I needed. Two pounds of crystal beads, plastic beading, and other supplies I come home finding myself painting each and every bead to the exact color of Rihanna's bra. Yes, it took time, but to me, it was worth it. The more and more I got into the project the more in-love I became with the bejeweled bra.
A little step-by-step process I went to via photographs:
...and the final product!
Other than the bra, I wore a striped blazer bought from NastyGal, the shorts are from American Apparel, and my booties are from Zara [go figure] !!!
What's next for me? How I can wear this bra again, IN LOVE!
(and it's more amazing in person)
What do you think?
