Hi!
Attached are pictures of one of my favorite costumes to date. After days of brainstorming, my boyfriend finally came up with the idea of a Homemade Roy Lichenstein's Pop Art Couple Costume and little did we know it was right in front of us! a costume rendition of Roy Lichenstein's pop art "The Kiss" which I have a copy of framed above my bed.

I love costumes that require awesome make up to the point that at the end you can't really tell it's you under it all. For the makeup which took a couple of hours to do on myself and my boyfriend, I used wet to dry face paint from Ricky's NYC. I bought a yellow bob wig which I later styled into a cooler "do" with lots of hairspray. I work in fashion design and my company has a great closet loaded with vintage finds that we use for inspiration where I found this great sixties polka dot dress.

I bought the red "Jackie O" jacket at "Loehmann's which I returned after Halloween. The tights were layered, yellow on bottom, fishnet on top. The super cute shoes I borrowed from a coworker and the accessories I bought in thrift stores and just piled them on.

My boyfriend's sweater and shirt we found at a cheapy store for like less than $20 altogether and his polka dot tie I found at the Salvation Army for like a buck! Over all, the make up was probably the most impactful aspect of the costume, the outfits just added a bit more.

Hope you enjoy!

After too many years of the same tired 'ole remakes and trashy costumes everywhere, I decided to liven things up a bit! This Roy Lichtenstein comic book Pop Art really pops to life (get it?) with this homemade ensemble.

I spent hours polka-dotting myself silly and adding bold comic lines around my features. I sewed heavily colored fabric together to make the dress and lined pleats with fabric paint. I painted heavy lines on high heels and created a foam poster board "thought bubble" that read "Later that night..."GEE, I HOPE I WIN" (a nod toward any costume contests I would enter ;) and hot glued it to a headband that I bought at a local craft store.

I created another foam board sign that read "GASP" to complete the comic look! On my legs I drew in knee-caps and added a "cross-hatching" effect. It took a good while, but I was stoked with the end result!

This is a picture of the woman in the Roy Lichtenstein painting as an actual comic book character.

For this homemade Roy Lichtenstein comic girl costume I purchased a yellow wig and painted black lines in it. I also purchased white stockings and painted polka dots on it. The earrings I made out of cellophane balls. The dress was just a polka dot dress that I have laying around the house. I coated my face with white paint and put red polka dots. I outlined all my features with black liquid eyeliner. I continued the polka dots on my arms with red acrylic paint.

I printed out one of Roy's paintings and attached it with black ribbon with ribbon arm bands.
