Halloween Costume: Masquerade Ball

Masquerade Ball

Halloween is just around the corner! I am not positive what I am going to be, but this is one of my options. I love dressing up in girly, elegant costumes. I have never been one to go overly sexy or scary. Just somewhere in the middle. The great things about this costume is that it is relatively easy to make or buy. The main item you need is a mask, which you can find for around 10 dollars or make for more or less the same amount. Then you just need a dress, you many have one in your closet you can wear or try raiding a friends closet. I think lace tights would be a great way to spice up your outfit and stay warm. Red or colored heels would add a touch of color. Simple jewelry, such as rings and a bracelet for your accessories. I would avoid a necklace so you can add a subtle touch of sex appeal by showing off your neck and shoulders. Plus, you have so much going on with the mask, you don't want to take away from that. For hair, it could go either way. A fancy updo or loose curls would be gorgeous. Smokey eyes with glittery mascara and red lips would complete this exquisite costume.
Hope this idea helped you out of you are having trouble deciding what to be for Halloween!
