Hair-Raising Halloween

Bonjour!!!! Today I am coming to you from the wonderful world of fast-pace science and academic excellence! (How I wish I could say that on a regular basis...) I was able to come up with the idea AND the outfit for this costume in about 10 minutes with a little help from Google images and pieces I already had in my closet. I used a tweed suit jacket, a white blouse, a bow tie from an old costume, and a white-paper-cutout mustache. The final touch? Tousled hair. Very, very tousled hair. Because Einstein was a genius but apparently did not own a comb. The funniest part of my costume was the fact that I really did not have to do a whole lot to my hair to make it look like that-- it's naturally/automatically genius-styled. :/

Now, you may be wondering why I would allow my hair to behave like a Lady Gaga run-in with 90 mph winds (while wearing a white paper mustache, you will remember) to an institution of higher learning at which I am attempting to earn certification for a respectable career. Rest assured, dear bloggers, the only audience this costume had was a class of 5th-7th graders. And the principal. But who's counting? Suffice it to say, if you go out of your way to look like a crazy bird who may require a one-of-a-kind buckling jacket, kids will appreciate it. So if you are one of those people who live to see the strange looks and head-whips, by all means this is the costume for you!

What are you celebrating Halloween as?

Tweed Suit Jacket: Thrifted | Blouse: Gifted | Bow-Tie: Old | Wig: Unfortunately, that is my real hair. Do send your regards.
