Brown Velvet Dress, Green Cardigan: Thrifted.
Tights: c/o OASAP. 
Bow Flats: JcPenny's.
Rest of Outfit: Handmade.

Halloween festivities were this weekend at Kent and I of course had to dress up. I was in quite the worrying state weeks prior about what to be. I thought, "what do I like? what makes me happy?"

 And so the Starbucks drink costume was born! 

The whole outfit only cost me $12 to make/buy. I had the cardigan, shoes, and tights & bought the dress at a thrift store for $2 (it's an extra small Victoria Secret; don't know how I fit into it). I then bought some Bristol board to make my 'cup holder' and printed and drew on the appropriate details. My head piece is cotton balls glued onto an old beret to look like whipped cream, and for my straw I taped a toilet paper roll on my hat and wrapped green construction paper around.

I went to the NAV party and a high school friends' party Saturday evening and then went out people watching late at night. Kent Halloween is like no other. Students from colleges across Ohio come here to party and there's somewhere around 15,000 people. The streets are packed with all sorts of wild characters...it's seriously indescribable. I had one guy ask if I was a cauliflower, another ask if he could 'have a drink of me' (ew), and a third pretend to smoke a bong out of my straw. People are so crazy and it was hilarious to watch them while sober. Halloween is always a night with the best quotes and stories to tell of downtown adventures.

Hope you all had a fun weekend, as well, if you went to any Halloween festivities! :)

With much love, Lauren.

Oh my goodness, you are just so adorable - that is so creative! I didn't think how you would top last year's costume - which was also equally awesome! Doesn't Halloween just became so crazy in college? It is funny to see how people can get so bizarre sometimes.

LAUREN THIS IS AMAZING. You look gorgeous and this idea is wonderful!!! I love the whipped cream and straw so much. And the back of the cupholder part is so cute!! And those Halloween celebrations sound insane. I'm used to loud, insane theatre people on Halloween but that's a whole other level! Hope you had a good time :)

Your costume is the cutest! I was at Kent Halloween, I wish I had run into you! That wouldn't have been likely since there's just so many people, but it sounds like you had fun!

You are so incredibly creative! What an adorable and unique Halloween costume. I love that it didn't take much money to make either.
