“She’s a full-on Monet.”
One of my all-time favorite movie quotes inspired my Halloween costume this year. Do you know who said it?
It all started when my bf and I decided to do a couples costume for our Halloween dinner in New York last weekend. I’ve never done a couples costume, plus I was meeting new people for the first time. Translation? Major pressure!
After looking online for hours one very sleepless night I saw a little girl dressed up like a painted canvas. Then a lightbulb went off. I’d be a Monet and he’d be my painter.
To kick off my DIY project, I bought a nude cotton dress from H&M and cut off the sleeves. Using fabric paint and a sponge brush, I created a version of Monet’s famous water lilies (*Note: if you’re going to try this yourself, make sure to put plastic in between the dress because the paint will seep through). After it dried, I went to Michael’s for some gold wired ribbon and used two layers to build a frame for my canvas. I first glued it on with E-6000, and then secured the edges with some needle and thread.
As for him, we picked up a shirt and beret at a vintage shop and a mustache at the Halloween store. Then we added the canvas I used to paint my costume.
I hope you like the end result of our painter and his work of art masterpiece!
