Shoot, I wasn’t even planning to dress up at all this year, but Tabs insisted that I throw something on, because he didn’t want to be the only kitty on the block without a dressed up assistant/trick-or-treating companion.
I couldn’t bear the thought of hitting up the costume store, since I knew it was gonna be crazy busy, so I busted a Tim Gunn and tried to “make it work” with what I had around the house.
As far as last-minute Halloween getups go, this MAC artist costume was super easy. I slipped on a black dress, fashioned a homemade tag out of a MAC logo I found online and stuck some brushes behind my ear. I also really, REALLY wanted to sling a black brush belt around my waist (like the ones that MAC artists wear at the counter), but I kinda ran out of time. I wore a gold brush belt from the MAC Wonder Woman collection instead.
SIDE NOTE: If you plan to recreate this costume and have a brush belt sitting around the house, use it! It’ll totally take it to the next level.
After I put on some bright makeup (well, bright for me), Tabs seemed adequately satisfied…
You know cats. You can never really tell if they’re staring at you with approval or disdain.
This year Tabs had his heart set on a steam punk-inspired costume, but I couldn’t track down a kitty-sized monocle and ascot.
Oh, well. Next year.
Instead, he decided to be a shark — an excuse to wear something form-fitting and sleek (to show off his curves).
How about you? Are you dressing up this year? I’d love to hear what you (and your pets!) are wearing.
