How to be a friendly witch

I love to dress up for Halloween. I used to make my costumes, but it feels like as time goes on, I have less time for things like that. I’m trying to figure out a way to make all of my time work for me, doing things I love. However, I don’t mind buying a Halloween costume instead of making it. There are some great costumes out there!

The only issue I have with women’s Halloween costumes is that they’re all sexy and short! Seriously! Some of us work with children and would like a decent costume. Even the princess and nun costumes had tiny skirts! I decided to go with a cute witch costume, to wich I added a skirt, so I wouldn’t show off my rear end to people.

Since I was going to be a friendly witch, I decided I needed pink hair. I bought a wig and thought it would work. I wasn’t expecting it to be fabulous, because cheap Halloween wigs rarely are, but it was awful! I couldn’t wear it, it looked really, really bad!

I still wanted pink hair, so I googled “How to make hair extensions out of a wig”. Turns out, it’s not that hard.

You need hair clips (the tutorial actually suggested wig clips, but I didn’t have any, it was raining so I didn’t want to go out, and the party was in a few hours.) These worked just fine.

You just need to cut off a strip of the wig, then cut it into the size you want. Then you sew it onto a clip. Voilà! Hair extensions.

Make a few more.

Also, make a huge mess.

The extensions were longer than my hair, but I kind of liked to have long hair again!

I went to my friend Ichih’s house where a bunch of us were meeting up to go to a party. I had to add my witchy accessories.

The party was a lot of fun and everyone’s costumes were great!

For work on Thursday, when it was actually Halloween, I wore a t-shirt under my dress and didn’t bother with the pink hair.

My collegues were also witches, but I don’t think they were the friendly kind!

    The pink extensions are my fav!! I agree about all the sexy adult costumes…it’s hard to find a decent costume. I went as Michael Jackson this year. I pleased with how much I was covered up. Ha!

      Thanks! I think I liked the look of the extensions more than if I’d had all over pink hair! Michael Jackson is a great costume idea. I sort of wanted to go as Katy Perry, but there’s no way to make that kid-appropriate, and there was no way I putting together two costumes!
