Can you guess what I was for my Halloween weekend? I'll give you one guess...a Zombie Hipster! Alex and I spent the weekend visiting one of my great friends in the Appalachian Mountains this past weekend (just what I needed to balance out my crazy week!), and everyone loved out costumes! We had people come up to us the whole night saying things like, "so exclusive" or "this song is too mainstream." We also had people stop us on our way to the party to take pictures! It was such a blast. And guess what? Our costumes were homemade, and very inexpensive.
t-shirt: $1 at the Dollar General
paint: $1.20 for all 4 colors (and I have plenty left over!)
Hipster glasses: Free, with the purchase of an awesome 3D movie ticket!
Flannel: $4 at a thrift store, or free if you can bum one off of a friend
It took me about 30 minutes to make the shirt and let it dry (I cheated and used one of those powerful hand blowers to make it dry faster!) And here are the results! Alex's shirt says "So Exclusive" and my shirt says, "Life Was Too Mainstream"
And here is a picture of us in our element, infesting the town!
