With Halloween around the corner, we dove into our closets to find quick and easy costumes to please all manner of costume and cosplay enthusiasts with Halloween Costumes From Your Closet! Today we are looking at the innocent beauty of the Childlike Empress from The NeverEnding Story.
If you’re not into making the headpiece, don’t worry, similar items can be found on Etsy without breaking the bank. For a youthful glow, Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette is full of rose and bronze colors. Pair a bronze smokey eye with a pale glossy lip (my personal favorite is Buxom’s Full-On Lip Polish in the color White Russian), slick your hair into low ponytail, and throw on your headpiece to complete the costume!
Completionists out there who didn’t wait until the last second can take this costume to another level by making their very own copy of The NeverEnding Story to carry around! Which sounds a lot more complicated than it is. Craft stores like Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, and At Home have aisles dedicated to fake books. Choose the one you like the best and, while you’re at it, grab some silver paint and metal appliques. Then head over to any local Halloween store and make a beeline for the Egyptian area, where you’ll find different styles of flexible serpent armbands. Buy two, paint those bad boys silver, and hot glue that sucker and the appliques on to the cover of your fake book. Fantasia can arise anew!
