Halloween is just days away, which means its time to get creative! Since my birthday is on Halloween, I tend to go all out when it comes to costumes. This year, I planned to do things a litte bit differently. I made not 1, not 2, but 3 different costumes! Although I won’t be going out to show them off, I still had tons of fun putting these looks together. Here are three cartoon characters that I recreated!
1. D.W. from Arthur
When I saw this picture of D.W., I just had to recreate it! She is such an iconic character in the show Arthur. I got the shirt and skirt from Amazon and I made the belt out of yellow construction paper. I’m so surprised on how good this came out. I honestly feel like with a few more accessories, this could serve as a day to day outfit. Don’t be surprised if you see me wearing this after Halloween!
2. Debbie from The Wild Thornberrys
You have NO IDEA how many times I had to blow bubbles to take this photo. I was so happy to recreate this classic character from The Wild Thornberrys. Her sass is something I’ll never be able to perfect haha. I got the shirt from Amazon, the flannel from a thrift store, and the jeans from another thrift store. Click here to see how I thrift-flipped them!
3. Iron Heart from Marvel Comics
Last, but not least we have Iron Heart. She is such an amazing, powerful, and inspirational character that I had to do! I got the shirt from Amazon, and I actually printed out the Iron Heart symbol and taped it to my shirt! I know, I know, look at you Janelle, saving money and being creative. What can I say, I’m an innovative person. I sealed the look by adding some sliver hoops and letting my hair out into an afro.
