less than a week until halloween, and you still don't have a costume? rosie the riveter is a cultural icon of the united states, representing women who had to take on male roles, as many men were drafted into the army [WWII]. not only is she a model for women all over the world, proving that women can be as hardworking as men, her costume only requires things you would normally find in your closet!
WHAT YOU WiLL NEED;
- a chambray shirt
- dark wash denim jeans
- combat boots (brown or black)
- a red bandana (with polka dots or not, both are fine.)
you can simply pull your hair up into a bun. remember to pull some strands out so it looks like you've been at work all day!
you can virtually do anything for makeup. however, since it wouldn't look very appealing [or very sensible] to have extremely bold and bright makeup all over your face, i would suggest simply dusting a darker color in your crease, and [any shade of] red lipstick. (contouring, eyeliner, mascara, and highlighting are optional.)
there you have it: a quick and simple last-minute halloween costume, without spending a ridiculous amount of money on some flimsy, cheap outfit! remember, sleep tight, don't let those ghosts give you a fright! [o lordie, that was lame.]
lots of love,
