Becoming Mabel Pines from Gravity Falls

The bad news I got this fall was that my braces will have to stay on a little longer than I had anticipated – but the good news is that I can pull off a Mabel Pines costume this fall without any problem!

Mabel is the brace-faced twin sister to Dipper Pines on the Disney series, Gravity Falls.  I love the paranormal and supernatural adventures that ensue during Mabel and Dipper’s visits with their Great Uncle (Grunkle) Stan. They also help to run his tourist trap “Mystery Shack” – with a plot line like this you know that it is full of spooky fun for all ages (my all-time favorite episode is “Summerween!”).

Keep reading to see how I decided to make the most of having adult braces during Halloween by becoming Mabel Pines!

Becoming Fiona Applesauce from Bob’s Burgers

I love Bob’s Burgers on Fox! It’s always been one of my favorite shows and the humor is always spot on. I love it so much so,  that I decided I had to copy Gene Belcher’s Halloween costume he made this year.

In the Halloween episode, season 10, episode 4 (aired on Oct. 20, 2019), the Belcher kids line up and show off their costumes and I lost it when Gene presented himself as “Fiona Applesauce – Fiona Apple’s saucy aunt.”

I was surprised at the end of the recent episode because it actually features Fiona Apple singing the closing credits. Check out this Pitchfork article to see a photo of Gene’s Fiona Applesauce costume I was inspired to create and to learn more about Fiona apple’s special song for the Halloween episode.

I adore Fiona Apple’s music, so I knew I would equally love being her saucy aunt for Halloween.

If you want to see how I become Fiona Applesauce, keep on reading!

Spooky Good Style: Halloween Outfits!

My love for Halloween and clothes both have something scary in common. I’m obsessed with both! I have noticed that my Halloween shirt collection is starting to get a bit out of control, but it is OK to wear these tops year-round, am I right?!

I have so much fun putting together different Halloween theme styles and looks (I blame my Assistant Manager days back at Maurice’s when I clothed mannequins each week) so I wanted to share some of my looks with you!

Perhaps you’re looking for something to wear to work or to the office this Halloween that isn’t necessarily a full on costume. These looks are perfect for that occasion and every day this month!

Spooks & Shoes: 7

Greetings spooky friends! It’s been a good while since I shared a “Spooks & Shoes” post!

This is partly because shoes are the last thing I need (last time I cleaned my shoe closet I counted over 75 pairs). Old habits die hard, because I recently treated myself to a new pair of kicks AND something spooky. So here we are again!

Spooky Good Style: New Spooky Tees for Summer

It’s not summerween without some spooky summer tees! I wanted to share some of my favorite tees I have purchased this season from some of my favorite designers out there on the world wide web!

Year-round-Halloweenheads like myself wear our spooky swag all the time, and there are plenty of cute and fun ways to dress up these haunting tees for the summertime.

This “Hollow Inside” tee I’m wearing above I got from Doodle by MegMeghan Wallace is fellow Oklahoman and designer who has many Halloween-themed original designs on her Society6 and Redbubble shop and also an array of cute, whimsical patterns, cacti and Gilmore Girls inspired artwork.

Spooky Good Style: Spring Favorites Episode 3

Happy Spring Equinox! It’s finally appropriate to be into all things SPRING – spring clothes, spring-o-ween, pumpkins, bats…you know, your typical spring stuff.

This spring I plan to continue to wear overalls and jumpers – because they’re airy, whimsical, fun and make me feel like I stepped right out of the 1990s.

I am in love with this plaid jumpsuit because of it’s fun fall pattern – but is lightweight enough to sport during spring and summer.
