Halloween!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, with it being Halloween and all - growing up in eastern Europe, I was completely oblivious to this phenomenon. Now I've embraced it (as you will see in the photo below... haha)
I went out with a group of friends and had a very itchy scalp due to my 2 blonde wigs - but it was a success! I dressed up as an 80's bright pink Barbie doll, like the kind I used to play with as a child. I originally wanted to do the 1959 version and I even have a bathing suit similar to the one Barbie wears, but it was absolutely freezing and storming here this weekend, thus a bathing suit wouldn't have made me too happy. Without further ado, here we go:


I've gotten a few comments from friends that it looks like Elle from Legally Blonde (due to the skirt/jacket combination), but it was the brightest pink thing I could find when I rushed out to search for things at the local thrift store. Pink ruffly lace top was purchased at Urban Behavior (a cheap Canadian Forever 21 type store), shoes are from Aldo, and sunglasses are also from Aldo (I can't believe they're part of their regular stock... haha).
2 wigs were layered on top of each other, and I slapped on the make-up pretty thick to get that flawless doll face.
I went with purple for the eyes (MAC's Fashion Groupie eyeshadow, MAC Dollymix blush on eyes and on cheeks, and the 2 purples from the Urban Decay Ammo palette).
For the lips, none other than YSL Rouge Volupte #7, Lingerie Pink!
Sticking with bright pastels, I opted for China Glaze "For Audrey" on the nails.

How was your weekend?
