Hey guys! How’re you doing this weekend?
I’ve just had a really lovely time up in Newcastle this weekend for a Halloween party/leaving do. One of my friends is moving to New Zealand to do some studying there, so we had a wild night out and an emotional hangover brunch this morning too. It made me realise how much I miss the days we were at university together – it’s so strange that we all have jobs and responsibilities now! Argh!
My Halloween Outfit
So, I thought I would very quickly tell you about my Halloween costume in case any of you wanted to try something a little bit more quirky or different this year! It’s also very helpful if you wanted try and save some money and not spend hours on the internet looking for a costume! The outfit itself is based on the meme ‘idiot sandwich’, which if any of you have not seen before, originates from the Gordon Ramsay TV skit ‘Hell’s cafeteria’. It is here that Gordon holds two slices of bread either side of Julie Chen’s head whilst proceeding to ask her “What are you?”, to which she responds “An idiot sandwich”.
Anyway now I’ve got all that out of the way…its time to get down to the outfit. It’s a super simple look; you can find any old white t shirt and permanent marker to do this. Firstly, I started out by writing the word ‘idiot’ in capital letters across my t-shirt, making sure they were written the correct way as other people would view the top (otherwise making myself look like a true idiot!). The next step consisted of finding a rigid headband, sellotape, two slices of white bread, and proceeding to wrap the tape around the bread whilst attaching to the headband. It’s even so simple you can pretty much pair the top with anything in your wardrobe, but I matched it with a distressed denim skirt:
*Please note: The heart shaped icon is not part of my outfit, it is purely there for privacy reasons only.
There are also plenty of other simple costumes you can make free of charge by just putting a little thought into your outfit and utilising the brilliance that is cardboard! You could create a couple’s cards against humanity set of boards, or even fashion a giant Pacman using a pair of scissors and some paint… the possibilities are endless!
Hope you enjoyed reading this post and I can’t wait to see what you come up with for Halloween! (If you celebrate it as much as me that is!). Now time to carve the pumpkin!
