One should either be a work of art,
Or wear a work of art.
- Oscar Wilde
The Artist + the Work of Art was last year's Halloween ensemble. It was conceptualized and executed in 2016 bb (before blog), which means that I don't have awesome step-by-step photos to share with you. But I thought I would link to the products that I used to achieve the look (a couple of the products I used are no longer available so I found really cute substitutes). The things that I love about this costume (outside of the artsy wow factor) are that it's not another Disney princess, it's gender neutral, and every element of the costume can be re-used. I don't know about you, but it feels kind of sad to buy or build a costume that will only be worn once. I would rather spend my money on items that can become a part of my kids' wardrobes. You might be thinking, "Arielle, what about the beret?" I am here to tell you that it is a timeless staple, it is a must have accessory for all future trips to Paris (we all need more of those), and it is a magnificent addition to your dress-up box... mime, anyone? How about pairing it with a baguette and a funny French mustache? This costume slayed at the Halloween parade and delighted every household on the block. If you make it... you will absolutely ROCK Halloween!
