Characters I'd Love To Dress Up As For Halloween

October 16, 2014

 

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Putting together costumes, dressing up, and eating copious amounts of candy will always be awesome in my book. I’m not sure if I’ll be going to any parties this year or not, but I do plan on dressing up at work the entire week of Halloween. They wont be anything too elaborate of course because I need to still be able to get my work done, but if money and mobility weren’t an issue these are five characters I would love to dress up as this Halloween:

Casual Cosplay: Aquaman

October 14, 2014

Casual Cosplay: Aquaman | allonsykimberly.com

CLICK HERE FOR OUTFIT DETAILS

This outfit is quite obviously inspired by Aquaman. The colors of the garments, the nail polishes, and the jewelry are all indicative of the King of the Sea. So much so that I doubt I really need to elaborate on way I chose them. But in case you’re curious… I chose a dress that had longer sleeves, since Aquaman’s suit is long sleeved and the orange dress paired with the green tights and the gold belt mimic the coloring of his suit. I thought the netting on the sides of the shoes was a subtle nod toward one of Aquaman’s past outfits that featured a fishnet top. I intended for the nail polishes to be worn together, with the gold just being on an “accent nail”, but either color would work well on its own too. The fish scale cuff bracelet, trident necklace, and Aquaman cameo necklace (all with a gold finish to match the belt) tie everything together.
