White Swan x Halloween

Self-made feather headpiece, Nasty Gal sequin tank, BCBG tutu tank dress, D&G gold flats

I've never bought an actual Halloween costume (like from the packaged box). Maybe it's more embarrassing that I've always just had the random pieces to put together something last minute. I bought this tutu tank dress from BCBG a while ago even though I'd have no practical occasion to wear it.. except for Halloween.. I made a version of the gorgeous feather headpiece from the movie Black Swan seen here. Hope you all had a fun Halloween weekend!

  9. Yay! I actually looked to the Black Swan for inspiration for my costume as well, although I actually went as a phoenix. I figured a phoenix (if it were real) would look something like a swan except red, no? ;) Don't have pictures up on my blog yet, but they'll be up (hopefully) tonight!

  12. Ohh you did such a great job with your headpiece! Beautiful!

    I've never bought a packaged halloween costume either. I'm not a fan. My favorite costumes are always the ones people make up themselves :) Way more creative and cute and usually not as gross slutty!

    You made a great white swan!
