Last week I shared with your #JasperBean’s Halloween outfit and today I wanted to share mine with you. This year halloween falls on a work day. In my eyes, as a mummy, a halloween outfit requires minimum effort or at least that’s what I am aiming for. So an outfit that could be thrown together with pieces I already had in the wardrobe without looking too quirky during office hours is essential.
One of my favourite fantasy horror animation is Coraline and I wanted to dress up as the heroine.
Jumper: You can get this orange one I’m wearing from H&M.
Black Skirt: I’ve had my black skirt for years, but you can find a similar one here.
Yellow Boots: You can’t see them in my pictures, but I wore my high top yellow Converse.
I also had a yellow jacket from Boden, but didn’t end up wearing it because it was just way too warm!
Coraline does have other outfit choices in the film such as blue jeans, a red skirt, blue jumper etc… so you can mix and match to suit your taste and wardrobe.

Because it’s Halloween…
For the halloween twist, I added a half sewn button eye with some fake blood. I DIY-ed this with a button, paper clip, thread and double sided body tape. I shaped the paper clip into a needle and then thread one side through the button and stuck it down with lots of cellotape so that that it wouldn’t move or poke me straight in the eye if there was some accident…
Some fake blood…
This is a super easy halloween outfit and the “needle” in the eye really did get a lot of attention and gave it that cringe factor. It didn’t cost me a fortune and with a little creativity, I won best outfit at work! #Result!
I hope you like it and thanks for reading! Until next time,
Love MsMamaBean x
