If there is one thing we love,  it's the magic of Halloween.   Ok, who are we kidding...we just love the excuse to wear a costume, dress up our kids and eat a ton of candy that we have smuggled from their loot.  

Halloween is fun, spooky, candy filled, fantasy making and exciting.   But nothing is scarier than not having time to get a costume together!   Don't worry guys,  we got you.

A few weeks ago we were invited to a kids costume party and we had not a minute to even think if we were going to dress up let alone getting something together.  So what was I to do when my girls asked me to join them in their kitty fun?   

I grabbed eye liner (lots of it), bronzer, blush, mascara (tons of it) and luminizer.  Voila!  Kitty on call.  I threw on some old ears we had lying around, a black utility suit and 10 minutes later we were off!

While I was searching deer costumes I came across the cutest account of a mama called The Beautiful Circus.  She had the sweetest deer tutorial on her insta account.  We are obsessed!  Fingers crossed the bunnies "beg" me to be bambi!   

TheBeautifulCircus.com. How cute is she??

To get her look she used foundation, white cream makeup, bronzer, blush, eyeliner and mascara.  Head over to her blog for a tutorial and more cute animal ideas.

For years we have both been in love with the Roy Lichtenstein costume.  It's so classic and requires 15 minutes and only a few products.

Below is a detailed tutorial but you could achieve this look in less time.   Grab red & white lipstick or face paint, an eyeliner brush, bright shadow (blue and any other bright color. Blue is if you want tears)  , black eyeliner (gel pen is best), mascara and hairspray to hold your hair in place.  

Need something even easier?  You can never go wrong with Kate the Great.

Dear Never-ending Story,  you will forever be our forever.  And childlike empress?  You will forever be our favorite dream costume.  

Pinterest.  This takes nothing more than an upside down jeweled necklace, reddish brown shadow, eyeliner, mascara, blush and a white nightgown or poncho.

Why we haven't done it yet is beyond me.  Or is it because no one will be our luck dragon or Atreu.  Ahhhemmmmm...boys?!?

What ever you do or what ever you become...have a blast, eat candy, enjoy the moment and we love you!
