Just punch the lenses out of those thick 3d glasses and put masking tape around the middle. Wear a button shirt, capris, and knee socks pulled all the way up. Wear your hair in lopsided pig tails. And I got suspenders but that's optional.

You need black wings and a red dress with tights (fishnet). Just get a halo, get some make up to make you look heavenly.

Tween jack-o-lantern

I was thinking about being a tween jack-o-lantern for Halloween this year. All you will need is a orange dress/shirt and orange leggings. If you want to, you can add cutouts of faces or paint/draw them on. Then add green eyeshadow and there you go!!! You are a tween jack-o-lantern!!! I hope you enjoy!!! :D

Cute Nerds

We are both 12 and are dressing up as cute nerds. So what you have to have is cute plaid skirt, any shirt (preferably button down), suspenders, a bow, and glasses. 3D glasses with their lenses popped out would look amazing. For shoes we are wearing flats with knee high socks. Don't forget your own touch!!!! Make it cute!!!!!!!!!

This year my two best friends and I are being toddlers and tiaras. We are curling our hair and doing outrageous makeup (the makeup is optional, but it helps make it look like you are one of the pagent kids) and wearing tutus and a sequined shirt the color of the tutu. Then just white shoes and socks. Try to watch an episode if you can.

Tootsie roll

It's the cutest hing for any ages. Brown fabric wrapped around yourself. I recommend wearing white shorts under. Cut white fabric letters and glue on. White flats and you're ready to go.

Dead bride

All you need is a bride costume or cheap white dress, maybe borrow a dress up veil from your lil sis or cousin. Sounds babyish but just wait. If you have a pair of silky white gloves wear that. Next deadify yourself (fake blood, pale face, scars, dark eyeshadow, ect.) overall its pretty cool. ENJOY!!!

Vampire for girls

You can be a vampire! All you need is a black dress, red lipstick, fake blood, white face paint, black eyeliner and eyeshadow, fangs (optional), white tights for the pale effect (optional) and black shoes or boots! I was a vampire for halloween 2 years ago, and it was awesome! Try it!

Zombie Bride

This year (2012) I am going as a zombie bride. I will wear an old prom dress and cut it a little. Do my make up really dark and put a scar on my head. It's really easy and will look great!

Get a dress, wrap ace bandage around it, wear eyeliner.
—Guest Elizabeth


White bath robe, spandex underneath, white face paint for a facial ( the real stuff would complteley dry out your face!) hair up in a tight bun on top of your head, a medium-small towel wrpped tightly around it, flip flops, no make up anad its a good excuse to get a pedi or a mani!
—Guest miafamilia
