halloween – rosie the riveter

I love Halloween!  It’s definitely my favorite holiday…even better than Christmas!

  • I’ll take any excuse to wear a costume
  • Halloween music is awesome
  • I’m addicted to candy 🙂

For me, Halloween season starts on October 1st…my students then have to deal with a full month of spooky and silly songs for the holiday.  Most of them love it just as much as I do, so it all works out.  Plus, it’s a great excuse to introduce and reinforce minor tonality!
DSC_0690-smallThis is the costume that I wore to school on Friday.  None of the other teachers dress up, but everyone knows they can expect me to be wearing a costume, wig, or crazy outfit for Halloween!  Even though most students (and many teachers) had no idea who Rosie the Riveter is, it was a great opportunity to give them a little history lesson!

The “real” Rosie has a Westinghouse Electric Service button on her collar, but I went ahead and made a “We Can Do It” pin to show the kids.  I created it out of one of my favorite craft materials, shrink plastic.

This was my first time attempting a vintage-inspired hairstyle, so I apologize for my poorly executed roll there.  I’m determined to practice, since I adore vintage hair!

I also went for a headband look instead of a full head scarf.  I spent about 40 minutes Thursday night trying to make the scarf look good, but I failed every time!  I have a lot of hair (even when straightened), and I looked like a Conehead with it all shoved in there.  If you have any tips, please let me know! 🙂

I wore a TOTALLY different costume to a friend’s party on Saturday night.  I didn’t have time to photograph it before leaving, so I’ll try to get some pictures taken to share with you soon!

      Hehe, thank you SaraLily! I was surprised that I actually liked the jumpsuit – it was my first time wearing one, and I was also thrilled that it was comfy!!
