Costumes to take over student lounge

24 Oct

Only seven days left

With Halloween now dwindling one week away, I took some time to let my inner makeup artist shine and try on new looks inspired by those seen on one of my favorite Pinterest boards. I also gathered inspiration from Youtube’s gurus for some very creative costume hacks, a few of which I can’t wait to show off at LCCC’s HalloQueen Costume Contest next week. Don’t go batty this year worrying about a last-minute costume—this post has you covered!

 Costumes

Mime makeup look

With my dark hair and eyes, this mime look was a bit more difficult to pull of.

Cheaper than store-bought, duplicated outfits at the store, homemade costumes give off the best vibes of individuality and creativity. There are so many ways to make your own costume, from makeup to clothes to pure attitude. This Halloween my favorite homemade option is the cosmetics route, because it’s for any range of talent, it’s inexpensive (if you have what you need or know where to get it), and I can transform in ways I haven’t been able to with clothes alone—a fairy, mermaid, mime, superhero, or even a fairy-mermaid-superhero-mime (it could happen).

 

Feline inspired makeup

Of the many Halloween makeup looks I tried on, Femme Feline was my favorite.

Here are some of the video tutorials and inspiring pictures I most adore:

 

As with school spirit and the ZombieFest, your costume can be as drastic or demure as you like. I personally discovered that even though I’m comfortable wearing a lot of makeup, the looks that require more facial coverage are more difficult for me to pull off, so I cut back to somewhere in the middle.

LCCC’s Student Alliance for Equality (S.A.F.E.) is sponsoring their Second Annual HalloQueen Costume Contest. The contest consists of four categories: Best Gender-Bender Costume, Most Creative Costume, Best ComiCon/Sci-Fi Costume, and Best Horror Costume. HalloQueen will be held in the Student Lounge this Wednesday, Oct. 29 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Hopefully this post gave you plenty of ideas to use and put together something unique—and have fun doing it!

Saturday, Nov 23rd, Daisy Dukes Bar and Package will be holding a Pajama Party.  With little time left before the holidays, Daisy dukes is putting out a last-ditch effort to allow you to relax before the stress of the holidays.  The party starts at 9 PM, and anyone over the age of 21 is invited to come out have some drinks and hang out.  Pajamas are definitely encouraged but not a must to join in.

Costumes will be rewarded!

Cash and prizes will be awarded to the persons who show up wearing: the funniest PJ’s, the sexiest PJ’s, and the wildest and most colorful PJ’s.  Come hang out, get comfy with some friends, and drink responsibly.

Happy Holidays

As some of you may be leaving for the holiday, I would just like to take a moment to remind you all to drive safely.  The roads can be especially dangerous during the winter.  Take your time and get there safely, your family will appreciate it.  For information on road conditions, you can always dial 5-1-1.
