Halloween Edition 2013 Part I

October is here and the weather is chillier, leaves are turning orange-brown and falling to the ground. I love this time of the year I just want to wear my comfy sweater and drink a pumpkin spice latte and eat a pumpkin pie with whip cream. Anyways enough about what I love about October, well as you know Halloween is fast approaching, this year I had the privilege of designing not one but THREE Halloween costumes!! Here is my first out of three.

My aunt wanted to be Gunter from Adventure Time.



The character is a cute penguin. She wanted a dress that consisted of a sweetheart neckline, long sleeves, a hoodie, and ruffles at the bottom. Her fabric choices was satin, she wanted it to be shiny. The colors consisted of black, white, and orange for the beak.
I made muslin for her to test out the design. However, the flared sleeve was omitted in the final design.

After minor adjustments I was ready to sew with the real fabric. I have to admit this design had a lot of curbs that were tricky to sew, but I was successful at making sure they all matched. I really loved the way I captured the characters face with a 3D beak. The ruffles really made this design stand out, and made it girlie. I was extremely happy when I saw her try it on, it fit like a glove. She was really excited and happy with her Gunter Halloween costume. Thanks aunt for allowing me to design your costume; it will definitely be one of a kind and unique. Hope you all enjoyed part one of the Halloween edition 2013. Stay tune for part two all I can say for now is, I am designing two children’s costumes.

As promised here is a picture of her wearing it, she looks AMAZING. Happy Halloween everyone!

The company carries organic, toxic free beauty and skincare products. I believe that taking care of your face is important since it is the first thing everyone sees so make it a lasting impression. I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.
