Chilly Minnie

Yesterday was really cold and windy due to Hurricane Sandy, and that unfortunately seemed to stifle the general spirit of Halloween festivities on campus, which was pretty tragic. However, a few people (myself included) still dressed up, and there was a group of people who offered to take semi-professional pictures of people in costume for only $10 for a ten-minute session, so they could create a Facebook competition for free tickets to the school fashion show. I decided to take advantage of it with my friend, Tiffany, because I get a free photographer for the blog, right? Actually I'd taken some pics earlier anyway, but this background here is significantly better than the baroque-printed carpet. 

I dressed up as Minnie Mouse, and I decided to go all out, while still being practically dressed for the atrociously windy and wet weather. I decided to go for long-sleeved spandex, a skirt from Rue 107, oversized Minnie Mouse gloves from Amazon (which are actually well insulated), an infinity scarf, and yellow rainboots. Minus my legs and face, I managed to remain pretty warm. I also used a tiny bit of red lipstick on my lips to achieve a light pink, and used eyeliner to make my nose mouse-like. I also threw in a tail for believability (which wasn't nearly as inconvenient as I presumed it would be. 
Tiffany dressed as Catwoman, and we drew her mask on with liquid eyeliner, which came out surprisingly well for a 20-minute last ditch effort costume. 

This was my first official Halloween ever, in which I took time and effort to get a costume and dress up, and even though not many people were in costume on campus, I think it was definitely worth it. Next year, I might go dressed as Poison Ivy! It would be fun to make the entire costume, don' you think?
