This year, I was at a loss for what to be for Halloween. This happens to me every year, and I always pull something out last minute or go for something that doesn’t even look like a costume. I’m not a huge Halloween person, but I love to dress up!
Usually, my sisters and I do a group costumes and hit up the Halloween Parade in the city’s West Village. Last year we were flappers straight out of The Great Gatsby, with my blonde sister going as Daisy (and her husband as Gatsby) while I did my best Jordan Baker inspired-by-Baz-Luhrmann costume. We had a lot of fun getting ready!
This year, I wanted to do something similar, but I wasn’t having any brainwaves. Until I thought, “I kinda wanna be Kylie Jenner for Halloween.” It’s SUCH a distinctive look, considering all her wigs, her signature enhanced lips, and her selfie style. But I knew my sister, who’s blonde, loves Kylie even more than I do, so I figured, why not do a low-key, but definitely recognizable, group costume as the K/J clan?
Instead of Kylie, I’m going to do Kendall. She’s a style icon, so shopping is going to be so fun. I’m aiming to recreate her effortless street-style look with black skinnies and a leather jacket. But the best part for me will be the makeup.
I bought her gorgeous Estee Lauder lipstick last week, and I’m so excited to wear it. It’s such a beautiful matte orange/red, and I’m going to do her winged eye, looooong lashes, and simple straight hair parted down the middle. I’ve found inspiration in this Youtube tutorial by Chloe Morello (love her), and am planning on doing her whole look. She’s perhaps not as recognizable as Kylie, but with one sister doing Kylie and the other doing Kim, we’ll definitely be recognized.
So far, I’ve got her lipstick, some long false lashes, a new cropped leather jacket, and a gray sweater-type crop top that I’ve seen her wear off her shoulders. With black booties, I’ll be comfortable (ish), warm (ish), and stylish. 😉 Here’s the photo that was my inspiration:
If you’ve been reading this blog for a little while, you’ll know I’m a true fan of the sisters. Leave the hate at the door, if you please. I like their personalities, their style, and their influence. So this costume isn’t meant to be disrespectful or to make fun of them; it’s just fun. Simple as that.
Hope everyone reading this has a happy Halloween, and please stay safe!
