023. Moonrise Kingdom

I can't believe how much I've had to post lately! For people who actually follow me, I'm sorry if I'm cluttering your feed! It's just because so much Halloween stuff has been happening here it'll all calm down after today, I promise.

Like everybody and their mother, I dressed up as Suzy Bishop from Moonrise Kingdom during the day today. It was actually a really inexpensive costume! I already owned everything but the binoculars. The hat, dress, and shoes are all vintage. I almost bought some beetle earrings from I don't care if it wasn't the most unique costume ever, I felt like a bad ass all day! Here's the costume:

For those of you who haven't seen this movie yet, you definitely should! It's adorable and happy and clever and beautiful to look at, but I'm sure you don't need to hear that from me because you probably already have from the rest of the internet.

Anyways, Happy Halloween everyone! I'm really enjoying stalking the internet for costumes. One of my favorites so far is this awesome version of Edward Scissorhands by Caitlin at Escapism. Unfortunately I'm not going out tonight because I have a work shift at 6:00 AM, but I hope everyone who does has a wonderful night!


  1. great costume!

  2. Actually this is SO unique, I love it! I'm jealous- even though I doubt no one at my school would understand it in the slightest, that's how it usually is with me and my Americana school anyways... and it's a pretty perfect costume.<3

  15. What a great idea for a costume! I love Wes Anderson. But I haven't seen all of Moonrise Kingdom yet, I tried to watch it on the plane from Dallas back to Australia but I was too tired to really keep up with all the dialogue with the crummy plane headphones.
