A creative mind is a powerhouse of a tool to have. Having a holiday such as Halloween is like Christmas, per se, for a creative mind. It’s an outlet to let your mind and imagination run free. Defy odds, and make the impossible VERY possible. Add a touch of whimsy, a bit of shock, with the help of some glitter, and have Brian’s style of Halloween.
Martha Stewart has always been my go to gal for Halloween how-to. The recipes, ideas, projects, and costumes all inspire and have that touch of whimsy I admire so much in the spirit of Halloween.
This year Martha needs our help! She’s created some of the very best Halloween outfits over the years. Her outfits make headlines, grace the cover of her magazine, and are sometimes more talked about than the event she’s wearing them too. From everything to a life size moth, a ghastly ghoulish equestrienne, to a softer side like a golden goddess or the most elegant fairy godmother not even Disney could rival!
I’m including pictures of the costumes I made, some of the parties I’ve hosted where I made the decorations, and entertained like a pro. I want to leave my guests impressed and shut out the competition in the sense that they’ll never go to another Halloween party with so much attention paid to detail and creativity like that again… Until I host the next one. Enjoy!
“Lady Gaga” (this was in a Starbucks, I showed them that I crafted the lighted disco stick from a golf club stick, an LED Flashlight, and a grande domed Starbucks cup. Glued triangular beads to the side and wrapped with electrical tape, functional and really made the costume. The sunglasses were a pair of broken rhinestones Valentino’a that I glued triangular clear beads, sequins, and glitter to, to help create this look from “The Fame”
Below are some photos from the Halloween parties I’ve hosted and held. Entertaining has always been a favorite of mine. I love making crafts by hand, everything from hand crafted paper bag luminarias stenciled with pumpkin stencils to hand crafted beverages like a “Smoking Bloody Cosmopolitan”
