The superhero tu-tu effect can be defined as a classic super hero look reinvented with abundant strength, new powers, and a whole lot of sassiness. Yes, I definitely just made that up! But really, a superhero who wears a tutu…now that’s my kind of powerful. This past weekend my friends and I had our annual Halloween party that doubles as a birthday celebration for of a few of our favorite girls. We will go ahead and chalk this party up as a BIG success, because lots of spooky-fun was had by all.
This year, our costumes were a little more work than usual (as you can see), but we were definitely show-stoppers when we hit the town. Thanks to our crafty friend Danon and Pinterest, we took on the DIY project of tutu making. With a few hours of work, each of us transformed into our fave iconic super hero with a touch of added flair. The tutus made of tulle and elastic were pretty easy after a few trial-and-error episodes. The method is pretty easy once you get it down pat: measure, cut, loop, pull, and repeat until your tutu makes a complete skirt. You can check out this YouTube tutorial for a little guidance when tutu making! From Spiderman to the Hulk we rocked out our tutus and superhero swag.
Now go get your Halloween on y’all and make it extra spooky! PS – make sure you send in your Halloween looks to Lex What Wear here.
