Indian Inspirations

Trick or Treat, Darlings?

I say Treat! Trending right now is the tribal look, and with Halloween upon us, I was more than inspired to become an Indian. And with me was my boyfriend, Nerd News Now's own Michael Bartley as my Cowboy. Creating my own costume was fun, but I was beyond inspired to create a new line of sketches based off my latest craze appropriately dubbed: Cowboys v Indians. You can see the start of my sketches below, darlings, and of course my own Indian costume.

Some possible fabric ideas.

How to get the Tribal/Indian look:
-feather jewelry
-fur accents (I liked this sweater from BCBGeneration)
-animal patterns (like my Kate Spade purse pictured below)
-geometric patterns or motifs
-fringe skirt or poncho
-primary color beads
-spirit animal (my was the jaguar)

How to get the Cowboy look:
-cowboy boots
-paisley kerchief
-pair of levi's
-cowboy hat
-riding gloves
-leather accents

Ok darlings, I have to fly for now, but I will include more in this post later, and how I was able to construct my own Spirit Hood, and how you can follow the steps to make one for less money!

Happy Halloween!
