See The Ghosts of Kat Mykals Halloween Past [PHOTOS]
I may be a full-fledged adult but I still believe in dressing up for Halloween and I've got your look at Halloween Costumes from years gone by.
It is no big secret that I love Halloween and have said on more than one occasion that for me, Halloween is better than Christmas. I love the idea of dressing up and pretending to be something or someone else for a night. I typically put a lot of thought into my costumes well in advance. I thought I would share some of my costumes from over the years...
Young Vampire Kat (and Fairy Mini Me)
This is circa 2002. I died my hair black and went as a vampire. My daughter was a Fairy Princess that year.
Dark Fairy Kat
In 2006 I wore a fierce pair of big black combat boots and some extra big black fairy wings. Add in some glitter, and I was a dark fairy.
This year consisted of a pink peasant top, a waist cincher and some red fabric to make my headband and waistband. This was around 2007.
School Girl Kat
Circa 2008. I rocked the plaid skirt, button down shirt, cardigan, knee socks and the cutest red platform mary jane shoes!
Dead Cheerleader Kat
2009 was the year that I went as a dead cheerleader.I was rocking a plaid skirt, pig tails and pom poms.
Fast Forward to 2012 and I once again dressed in all black, slapped on some red eye shadow and broke out my fangs.
La Catrina Kat
2013 brought about something I had always wanted to try - Dia De Los Muertos makeup. This look took me a couple of hours to pull together but I was really pleased with the final product. It was really more about the makeup than the outfit.
Pinup Captain America Kat
In 2014, my friend Nikki put together the corset/bra portion of my costume and another friend made the shield for me. I pulled together the rest of the look using cool accessories, including the helmet and boots which I painted myself.
Queen of Hearts Kat
In 2015 I dressed as the Queen of Hearts! Using a corset bought online and a skirt that was given to me by a friend, I went to town with glittered hearts and glittered ribbon. I even decorated my shoes! I had so much fun making this costume and the best part! I was dressed with my friends Nikki and Mary as Disney Villains.
Pink Kitty Kat/Halloween Barbie Kat
Mermaid Kat and Voodoo Priest
I decided that since I have actually dyed my hair pink and I've discovered this year that I am in fact part mermaid, it only made sense that for Halloween 2017, I would personify my inner mermaid. I made my costume from a thrifted dress, some fabric a bag of seashells and some other odds & ends. I even made my crown! Big shout out to Shawn for helping me with the spray paint. I'm good with a glue gun, but spray paint - not so much! It's worth noting that Shawn created his costume this year as well. That staff? Completely handmade! We take Halloween very seriously!
