Today in Microfashion… A few weeks ago, Luke & Isaiah’s school celebrated Spirit Week and included Book Character Day for the students. Each child was to work with their families to create a costume (or inspired outfit) from the child’s favorite book. Choosing a favorite book in our household is near to impossible since everyone in our home loves to read – but the twins settled on characters from their favorite Dr. Seuss books – Cat In The Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. Creating the costumes were very fun and luckily I had most of the supplies on hand. I promised the twins that I would share how I created their costumes with all of you – so today I bring to you a little Easy DIY Dr. Seuss Books Costumes.
Using what the twins had in their closets – we chose out clothes like a black and yellow (neon yellow) shirt to use with their outfits. Since it was a chilly day we opted for a pair of denim jeans which worked and offered a casual flare while still giving the twins their own identity. I picked up a few items at the store – like red, white, yellow and green felt, but most of the supplies I needed to create their costumes, I already had on hand.
Isaiah chose to be the Cat in the Hat. While his costume was simplistic, it required a little more work than Luke’s with the hat having so many steps to create it. Here’s what I did.
Starting with the hat, I first used foam core board and cut out a round base to use as the brim of the hat. Then taking the red and white felt (I had them in 8″x 10″ pieces from Walmart), I cut them down to size – 2 inches in width and glued each strip together to create parts of the top hat. I used my hot glue gun to do this as it was faster for me then sewing since I sew by hand (no machine). I adjoined the pieces together to form the hat using white thread and stitched it by hand and then glued it to the brim that I created and covered with white felt.
I used the same red felt to draw a bow and glued it to a white strip of felt and then sewed a button on it so it could attach to his neck and could be easily taken off or put on. He wore a black shirt and his jeans and his outfit was complete.
1 square foot of foam core board
red felt – I used approximately 3 and 1/2 – 8″x 10″ sheets
white felt – I used approximately 3 – 8″x 10″ sheets
glue gun with glue sticks (or sewing machine / thread and needle)
thread and needle
black permanent marker (to trace the outline of the bow)
The video where I show the details and explain each item can be found here.
Luke chose to be Sam I Am from Green Eggs & Ham. His costume was fairly easy to put together though it took me a little while to figure out how to create the ham on his plate. Starting with his sign – I took a piece of foam core board and cut it out so that it looked cartoon-ish, writing the words “Sam I am” similar to that from the book. I then hot glued a wooden dowel to the back of the sign so that he could hold it in his hands.
Making the red hat for Sam was a little trickier. I had to take 3 pieces of red felt (the 8×10 I mentioned) and pieced them together with hot glue so it would have a similar shape to what Sam wears in the book. It kind of looks like an elf’s hat, with a triangle shape so that when we turned it inside out, it would have a slight curve at the top. The Green Eggs and Ham was simple… by cutting a round shape out of the foam core board, I covered the board with yellow felt and created the shapes for the eggs and the ham, which I stuffed with scrap felt from the pieces I had cut. Everything used to create Luke’s costume was sewed together with a hot glue gun. I also glued an elastic band on the back of the plate so Luke could slip the plate on his wrists and not have to carry it around with him.
2 square feet of foam core board
red felt – I used approximately 3 and 1/2 – 8″x 10″ sheets
white felt – I used approximately 1 – 8″x 10″ sheet
glue gun with glue sticks (or sewing machine / thread and needle)
black permanent marker (to write on the sign)
Check out my video where I walk you through the steps here and show you the detail of each item I created. I apologize that I did not film tutorials or take photos as I was doing this project since they were kind of impromptu.
The boys absolutely loved their costumes and were so proud to tell their friends and teachers at school that I created them and they got to help. I spent very little money – less than $15 to create the whole thing and if I had to add in the cost of their shirts, it would be less than $25 for both. What we enjoyed about these costumes were that they were easy to put on easy to take off. If the boys decided that they no longer wanted to wear them, they could remove the props and put them away. These costumes are very easy – they just take a little creativity and time to pull it all together. I think they would make a fun choice for Book Character Day for any school or even Halloween.
Be sure to check out the video above where I explain each step and show you all the little details of each prop. If you decide to create your own costumes using inspiration from ours, please be sure to comment and let us know. What about you? What would you select for Book Character Day as your dress up costume?
Woohoo for Halloween. While it is not our favorite Holiday, Halloween certainly ranks top in my family’s list of days in the year. With Halloween approaching just a few short days away, my family has been on a binge watching our favorite Halloween movies and shows to get in the spirit of the holiday. Today we wanted to share with you some of our favorites both Family and Kid Friendly. It’s been years since I have watched anything really gory so most of what you will see listed here can be watched by all ages, a few are more for adults and some kid choices too. Happy Halloween to all and have a fun and safe night!
The movies listed through out are in no particular order. We love them all!
Halloween Town – All the Movies (1998)
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Hocus Pocus (1993)
Addams Family / Addams Family Values
People Under the Stairs (there are some bad words in this show – my eldest can watch it, but not the twins)
Lady in White
Harry Potter Series (my family can literally have a marathon of Harry Potter movies year round)
It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
The Witches (1990)
The Haunted Mansion
Alvin & The Chipmunks Halloween Specials (especially Alvin & The Chipmunks Meet the Wolfman)
Now keep in mind that some of these are totally kid friendly and some movies you may need to determine if your children can watch them. Overall these are jut a few we enjoy and pull out during Halloween to have a fun family movie watching adventure. If we continued our list… well, we would be here another 365 days.
Regardless of whether or not you are celebrating Halloween or just staying home with a cup of cocoa – from my family to yours, we wish you a wonderful day! We hope you enjoy our list of movies as much as we do!
It’s no secret that the Holiday season is surely my favorite time of year. As a child, even if we grew up with little money, my parents always made this time of year special and I’m thankful that I got my creative sense and fun swagger from them. Lots happened this week, busy busy busy! So, here is a quick weekly wrap up.
This year, Halloween came and went faster than I could ever imagine and before I realized it, Halloween crept up on us and we were all getting dressed to trick-or-treat. My husband and I took the boys to the Pumpkin Patch earlier in the week which was fun, they had a blast (vlog coming soon) and while we were a bit late to get up there, we still found us some fun pumpkins to carve and draw on. Since this has been a yearly tradition for us to go, everyone was excited and we were so thrilled to see the boys have a blast.
I’m also happy to say that we are hitting cooler weather, woohoo. While we don’t really have snow here with exception to the summit of our dormant volcano, it’s still nice to know that I might be able to rock out some warmer threads this season. We are all looking forward to cuddle weather. We also had Parent Teacher Conference for all three boys this week too… I’m proud to say that all three of them are excelling wonderfully. To say we are proud parents would be an understatement.
While my husband had to work on Halloween night, my sister and I took the boys out to Trick-or-Treat in a neighborhood we were quite familiar with, we go there each year. Expecting to hit the mother load of candy this year, we were a bit bummed that half of the houses were not giving out candy. I think we may need to find a new location. It was a bummer, but nonetheless, we got some goodies anyway and it was about having fun – not the candy.
This year the boys picked out their costumes to wear instead of Mommy painting their faces. Kevin (Ka’eo) was a ghoul… the one from the Scream movies. The cool thing was that his mask dripped blood and everyone really got a kick out of it. Luke was Captain America, Isaiah Superman and I decided I wanted to really embrace my tomboy-ishness and painted a skull mask on with some face paint and makeup. I did the top half of my face (my eyes) using makeup to give it a sultry sexy tomboy appeal. lol Details for my makeup are posted below. My sister Harmony did a mask out of makeup – I loved it, reminds me of like a Dark Angel look.
We were quite happy to see a few commercials the last week and wanted to take advantage of the deal. It was FREE Spooky Face Pancake night at IHOP, so the boys, my sissy Harmony and I enjoyed breakfast for dinner. Yay us!
Overall this past week was quite a blast. It went by much too quick for my liking, but what is most important to me is spending this time with my family. Sometimes during the holidays we forget to stop and think about what is most important… we are either too busy shopping, cooking or working to blink and it is too often that we forget to soak in all the awesome memories. I can admit – I’m surely guilty of that. So make sure to stop and make a memory of what you’re experiencing… the work, the food, everything in between will still be there when you are done making memories. xo
As promised, here is my makeup from Halloween. Everything was super simple to create and this was a great choice for me since I needed to be done and ready to go to catch all the good candy. lol For my eye makeup I am using a combination of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna and Amrezy Palettes. Both have been favorites of mine all month and I really loved that it gave me a great fall smoky look. I know I promised to have a review up for Tamanna, so I hope to do that soon. I am using Ardell 120 Whispies, Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper, Paula Dorf 2+1 For Brows, Tarte Smoldereyes Pencil in Fig and Mally Evercolor Liner in Midnight and L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara.
For my skull part of my face, I am using White Halloween Cream Makeup, Milani Bella Eyes Shadow in Bella Black, Mia Mariu black eyeliner, a blending brush, a pencil brush and an angled eyeliner brush.
I opted for a pair of jeans, flip flops and a black t-shirt since I wanted to be comfortable, a little warm since it has been chilly out and I wanted to have mobility. My shirt is a custom shirt and I’ll be posting about that soon. I hope you all had a fabulous week and a fun Halloween. While I know some people do not celebrate the holiday – I totally understand that, I hope you had a wonderful day nonetheless. My feet hurt, I’m a bit tired but at the end of the day, I surely had a great one.
Did you have fun this Halloween? What were your highlights from this week? Wishing you all a fabulous weekend. ~xo
As the sun sets and creates a beautiful array of colors that light the soon to be night sky a magical mystical creature is born. Twilight, an Autumn faerie born from true love’s kiss roams the Woodland Forest to sprinkle her fairy dust of happiness and wishes over those who find themselves wondering her forest. She can be spotted only as the sun sets illuminating the sky with beautiful hues of purples, blues, oranges, yellows and reds. Twilight is a good faerie spreading her pixie dust in hopes to find her true love waiting for her at dusk.
I love faeries, which we’ve established in my Queen of the Forest Nymph tutorial and I stated that I would be using Faeries as a base for this year’s Halloween Makeup Tutorials. Just as with the first creation I did last week, I couldn’t figure out what or how I wanted to create Twilight, but knew the colors I had in mind. This look is easy to create as it is simply about blending shades to create a whimsical sultry look. I hope you enjoy my Woodland Fairy Makeup tutorial.
I hope you enjoyed that tutorial – don’t forget to subscribe, comment & like.
As I mentioned before, this makeup tutorial is pretty simple – especially in that I really didn’t have a plan when I created Twilight and decided as I was going along what I wanted to do. The thought process behind Twilight is that I wanted this to be a part of my imagination, let my creative juices fly at the moment and I also wanted it to be something you could turn to if you were looking for simplicity.
I used the products I had on hand to create this and I did what I could with what I had to conceal my natural brows. If you wanted this to be a bit more elaborate, I suggested scarring wax to flatten your natural brows and then latex over to create an even canvas. Of course, a good liquid foundation over your concealed brows will work well too.
Maybelline Baby Skin
Coastal Scents Eclipse Concealer Palette
L’Oreal True Match Powder in Warm
Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer
BH Party Girl Palette – Purple, Yellow, Orange and Orange/Red, Matte Brown, shimmering cream/champagne and Khaki Green Brown shadow shades
Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Tenacious Brown
NYC HD Liquid Liner – in the video I said I used my Jordana Fabuliner but they look the same so I made a mistake.
Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil in Black Point
MAC’s Blue Brown & Fuchsia Pigment – a little of it was mixed with some water to create the effect using a spooly that you see in the video. The two shades were mixed with water separately and applied to the face.
Colour Pop Lippy Stix liner in Grind
J.Cat Queen of Hearts Wonder Lip Paint
Red Cherry Lashes in 45
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara
MAC Reflects Antique Gold
My wings were purchased from the local Costume shop
My hair color was created using the Redken Color Rebel Hair Makeup in Rebel without a Coral and Purple Riot
The key in my opinion to this look is creativity, but also to just use your imagination. An original Woodland fairy normally has hues of browns and greens but fairies are mystical beings and who says that there can’t be one sporting shades. I am very happy with how Twilight came out, considering I really didn’t have a thought in mind when I started my tutorial and “winged” it. Wishing you all a safe, fun and Happy Halloween and stay tuned for next week’s Halloween tutorial.
Fall is upon us and Halloween just a few short weeks away. While Halloween is not my #1 absolute favorite holiday, (it’s top 5) it is definitely exciting for me because it means dressing up, fun costumes and that the Holiday Season is soon approaching. With the spooktacular day on its way I look forward to doing Halloween inspired makeup and while I’m not skilled in nail art – I do enjoy decorating my nails with fun colors and glitter for the season. In combination with a few of my girlies from The Beauty Council, I bring to you my Halloween Nail Art inspired by Pumpkins, Fall leaves and Halloween.
I love simplicity and since I am not blessed with artistic drawing skills on a small canvas (i.e. my nails), I decided I would go with what I knew. I pulled out my favorite colors for the season, a black striping nail polish and a nail art fimo (which I originally spelled “femo” and my spell check kept saying it was wrong. lol) pumpkin that I had in my collection and worked on my nail design. Overall, I loved the colors and I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out.
I started with a base shade, using China Glaze’s Cruisin as my base color. Then I took OPI’s I Knead Sour-Dough on a sponge and dabbed the shade onto the ends/tips of my nails. I take my time in doing this and then once I apply the brown shade, I add the orange (Cruisin) to my sponge and apply together to blend the colors.
My Accent Nail: For the nail art I used Kiss Brush On Nail Art in black to create my tree, Kiss Brush On Nail Art in Neon Green to add a few Green leaves on the tree and then dabbed Sinful Colors Splatter Spell glitters on parts of the branches.
To finish up the look I added Sinful Colors Splatter Spell Glitters over each of the other nails concentrating the glitter towards the tips of my nails and finished with my Ciate Speed Dry Top Coat. Easy and peezy – pudding and pumpkin pie. lol
I hope you enjoy this simple design and if you recreate it, I would love to see it. Since I’m kind of nail art challenged, I think this is easy to create, festive and definitely cute. Don’t forget to check out the other lovelies in the Beauty Council and their creations – links below 😀
Halloween comes but once a year and this year the twins are just a little older to truly understand what is going on. Last year, the twins were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and while they enjoyed themselves, they were still learning how to say “Trick or Treat” and getting the concept down. This year they had an absolute blast. We took the boys to my Sister In Law’s neighborhood where tons of people come from all over the Island since it is always a nice neighborhood filled with Candy giving houses. It was lots of fun and even more so that my husband had the night off and could join us.
My eldest was not in the “dress up mood”. I think he is at that stage where he is now “too cool” to wear a costume. He did want me to do some zombie makeup on him and since I only had a couple of minutes, I through together what I could so we could be out the door quickly. He really liked how it came out and I was happy that he enjoyed it. I thought he looked super cool and so did other people we came across through the course of the night.
The twins went through my eldest’s past Halloween costumes and found some they really liked. Luke loved the Dragon costume, but it never came with a mask – so he was just going to wear it like that. However, since Isaiah would be using a costume that would have a mask (one that we lost and couldn’t find), Luke wanted one too. Since I did the face paint for Isaiah, I decided I would do one on Luke too. This was my interpretation of a dragon face. I wish I took a better pic of what it looked like without his costume covering it – but you can see the video of it here. I took a print screen capture of part of the video so you could see some of the detail.
Luke really loved how it came out and honestly, I thought it was super cool as well.
As I mentioned above, Isaiah found one of Kaeo’s Spiderman costumes but we couldn’t find the mask for it anywhere. So I promised Isaiah I would paint his spiderman face on. He was so excited and absolutely loved how it came out. Here is the Instagram video for that one, here. I actually filmed a little before I completed the mask and this video obviously was taken before he decided to play and smear it (the picture above was after playing, so I had to redo it a bit. lol)
We had a lot of fun that night and I’m always looking forward to hanging out with my boys and husband. These times are rare and it’s important to make each and every moment count. I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween. The boys got a lot of candy and was sad to bid the day adieu but at the same time, they also know that “Ho! Ho! Ho!” which is what they call Christmas, is going to be here soon.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and an awesome upcoming week!
Omigosh, I have been working like a nut on my new wordpress site that I honestly have been neglecting everything else. But, come on now… we can all agree that if you are going through what I am – it is not the walk in the park for us all in the beginning. I am a little at ease knowing that the site looks pretty darn good and in the next few days I can call and have my domain switched over so that this truly will be “Honeygirlsworld”. Regardless though, I figured I would add a few posts here and there since I’m still getting used to the layout of WordPress and have been so used to the “drop and drag” option that Weebly offered me the last two years. So – if you see random posts from me, do not worry – I did not go psycho overnight. lol I did want to stop in and say “Happy Halloween”. While I sit at my desk and plug away at this site, my twins are eagerly and patiently waiting for their big brother to be finished with school so that they can start dressing up.
We went super easy for our pumpkin this year, mostly because I misplaced all of our pumpkin carving tools and really didn’t want to spring for new ones since I know ours will pop up again. So – the knife and xacto knife were our tools of the trade the other day. We chose to do 3 ghosts for our 3 little boys. They absolutely loved it and were so excited. The boys also lost their masks for their costumes (one of them anyway), so I’ll be pulling out my face paints and creating spiderman on Isaiah. This will be the first time I’m doing so – so I hope that it will turn out okay. I’ll be posting photos in the next day here so you can all see how it turned out.
Alright then, I’m back to the grind and will continue working on my site here. What do you think of it so far? Simple, but still… I’m pretty much winging it – lol (story of my life).
Anytime my Husband, Sons and I have some family togetherness is always a plus and last weekend it was no exception. Since my husband had the day off, we spend our Saturday traveling to the Kula Country Farms to choose out the perfect pumpkin to carve. It was a warm day but nonetheless we all had so much fun going through the pumpkin patch and looking at all of the displays.
Choosing the perfect pumpkin is never easy, but we managed to find a pretty awesome one. We always try to find one that is slightly flat on one side and round on the other side. Those tend to be a bit easier to carve. It is also important to make sure and get one where the stem is still well intact so it will be perfect when putting the lid back on top – it’s the pretty factor. lol
The boys enjoyed their time at the Pumpkin Patch. And we had fun looking at all the little crafty attractions that they have set up around the farm.
Going to the Pumpkin Patch has turned into a yearly family tradition with us. If my husband can’t make it, I’ll take the boys – but the last few years my husband’s schedule has allowed us to attend. Hopefully today or tomorrow we will be able to carve our pumpkin. I lost our pumpkin carving tools, so I’m on the hunt for them. 🙂 I hope you are all having time with your Family this Holiday Season!
From our house to yours… Happy Pumpkin carving! <3 ~Honey
Happy Halloween loves. I have been thinking about my Halloween makeup tutorials for a month now and I accomplished two of them and decided I would remake my Leopard Halloween tutorial that I did in 2011 but add a little more detail to it. Of course, I have improved in drawing my leopard print spots as well. lmao. For this look I wanted it to be easy to create so that you could do this on the fly and still run out for your Halloween festivities. I think I’ll be rocking out something similar this Halloween when I take the boys trick or treating. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to watch the embedded video tutorial to create this look or click here to watch it directly on YouTube.
STYLE & FASHION: To style this look I used a black off the shoulder (slashed) top that I had and a pair of black pants (I’m sorry I didn’t take a photo of my whole outfit). I decided to keep on my regular earrings since the wig I had on pretty much covered my ears. For the neck piece I chose a gorgeous Claudette Necklace in antique gold ($17USD) from Shoplately and Glint & Gleam. It is so “Old World” and screams “Queen” so I knew that it would be an awesome piece for this look.Don’t forget – if you haven’t signed up for Shoplately already, definitely do so using your Facebook account and get a $5.00 shopping credit. 🙂To complete the entire look, I added a chocolate brown wig with bangs (because I thought it gave it all a very sexy look and some leopard ears. Leopard ears are easiest to find this time of year, so keep your eyes out for them to complete your look. If you can’t find them, don’t worry – making them is pretty easy with paper and a headband.
I wanted the makeup to be smokey and sexy. I used the following products to complete the look:
Face Primer – Laura Geller Spackle
Foundation – L’Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation Caramel Beige
Bronzer / Shimmer – Wet n Wild Color icon Bronzer in Ticket to Brazil (739)
Matte Bronzer – Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Goddess
Blush – Wet n Wild Color Icon Blush in Mellow Wine
Highlight – Laura Geller Baked Highlighter – Vanilla
Eye Primer – Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Base Color Primer – Maybelline Color Tattoo – Bold Gold
Eye shadows – Wet n Wild Color Icon Sparkle ‘Til Morning Palette (Bronze eyelid color, Burnt Orange Crease color, Deep brown Definer color and golden shimmery browbone color)
Eyeliner – Jordana 12 Hour Liquid Eyeliner Pencil in Black (tightline/waterline), Jordana Bold Fabuliner in Black (upper/lower lash line and to create the lines on the spots)
Nose – Jordana 12 Hour Liquid Eyeliner Pencil in Black
Lips – Milani Colorstatement lip pencil in True Red, Milani Lipstick in Black Cherry and Jordana Pencil liner to create the black definition
Sparkle Dust – NYX Roll on Shimmer in Salmon
Leopard Spots – NYX JESP in Bronze
Glitter – NYX Candy Glitter Liner in French Champagne
Eye brows – Chela Brow definer
Mascara – Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara
Hi Loves… This is my Sugar Skull Makeup Tutorial. It is my second time creating a look like this, the first was last year and while last years came out okay, I wasn’t completely happy with it. This year I chose to pick colors that I love like Purple (of course) and Teal. I thought it would be awesome together. The look itself is easy to create, but it did take me a while to complete because I stopped and did all kinds of things while doing the look. If you want to see how I created this please check out the embedded video below or click here to watch it directly on YouTube.
Mary Kay Medium/Full Coverage Liquid Foundation in Ivory 105. I took this foundation out from my MUA kit – but you can also use cream Halloween makeup if you would like.
I finally filmed and got up my first Halloween Makeup Tutorial for 2013. I have a few more planned out, but decided I would start with this one since it is fairly easy to create and fun as well. I had a lot of laughs creating it as well as the video intro and outro. lol
I wanted this look to be easy to create and easy to take off so that is why I selected it. Here are the products that I used:
