Forget the hat and broom.  As a mum on the go, the standard Halloween witch costume with its hat, broom, and possibly black cat get in the way too much with the daily life demands of wrangling minions, cooking, cleaning, errands, and refereeing.

But, it is one of my favorite go-to costumes this time of year!  so I decided to revamp this classic DIY witch costume and bring it in the modern world of motherhood; and I'm calling it the modern midnight witch costume.  Because, let's face it, most of us mums don't begin our own "witching hour" till midnight anyways.  Am I right or am I right?! 

So for this costume, I tossed out the classic black attire and broom, and traded them for sequins, glitter, ombre, and a skeleton potion bottle.  


Aside from that, you've also probably noticed that my hair and make-up are the same as what I had in my spider lady post.  I know, I KNOW!  I put any degree of fashion blogging to shame; because one should never post back to back looks with the same hair and make-up.  Or so I've heard.  But, I'm not a fashion blogger.  Haha.  I'm a real life mama just trying to make it work.  And if that means getting all of my costume pics done in one afternoon to spare me from having to drag sweet kiddos to another photo shoot and using movies, treats, and smart devices as my only arsenal for keeping them good...then so be it.  As moms, we love our kids, chase our dreams, and do all that we can.  And in my book, that's an A+ performance.  Plus my hair was H U G E and unwilling to do anything else.  Despite my best efforts.  So there you go!  haha.'s how it all came together.
