a few weeks ago i had the great opportunity to style a photoshoot for Say Yes to Hoboken, (only one of my longtime favorite blogs, no pressure.)
the premise of the task at hand was to pick 4 couples costumes that you could easily pull from your own closet... aka my kind of costumes! this is what i end doing pretty much every year and i feel great about it! i'm so not the girl to spend a lot of money on things i can't use again and again.
there i go with the CPW talk again. while i love holidays, they're just that - days - so handmade or from my clothing or craft closet is the way for me!
you can read the full posts (complete with where-to-buy details and quick instructions on making the chimney sweep & money bags) at Say Yes to Hoboken.
and our amazing photographer, Ashley Thalman, who i quickly made "my people" has the most beautiful behind the scenes shots, she was so nice to let me borrow a few for this post.
QUINN! owner of QP Collections
BERT & MARY POPPINS!
KATRINA! lead singer of the punk band Baby Ghosts.
they're playing this monday and Russ and i are going for our traditional wedding anniversary concert.
pumped! it has been a long time since my last punk show, but no time like the present, right?
big thank you to Liz of Say Yes to Hoboken for the crazy fun gig, the out of control awesome models, and the wizard genius photographer and letting me hire my baby sister Bethany who did the stellar hair and make up for this. i love having her at shoots, she's so darn good.
also thank you to Susan of Freshly Picked for making those amazing leather bandit masks!
Happy Closet Halloween!
