Dressing up for Halloween can be so much fun but it can also get pretty expensive, especially if you are trying to create your perfect look. There also should be a limit on the number of sexy nurses, sexy police officers, sexy kittens, and Jason/Freddy Masks that are allowed out on Halloween weekend but maybe that's just my opinion. I've done the mass produced, store bought costumes before and I have found that I just have way more fun when I get to create my own costume (or one for a friend). The best costume I have ever made was a punny costume a couple years ago, the Social Media Queen. I haven't made a costume since then because I'm not sure I can top it as she reigned all through the rain all up and down High Street and it was quite epic. You can find pictures and details on how I made this costume below, I made it the day before I had to wear it.

The Social Media Queen
Steps to recreate:
I wore black leggings and a black shirt with the skirt over it to complete my look and topped it off with the plastic crown.
