3 Costume Concepts for Black ladies with Blonde Field Braids

When brainstorming what to be for halloween this yr, I began by searching for characters with blonde hair–for the only real cause that I already had golden blonde field braids in.

So here’s what I got here up with:

1. Rapunzel

This one was a no brainer. The second I put in my blonde boxbraids, I knew I needed to attempt to do a halloween costume impressed by Disney’s Rapunzel.

Like is there any higher idea for lengthy thick field braids?

I ordered the costume and corset from SHEIN (boo, I do know.. that is earlier than I knew higher). And ran to the greenback retailer to pick a various collection of pretend flowers to stay in my hair.

It’s humorous, once I debuted this costume on TikTok folks both…

Got here at me for being… racist?

Or critiqued the truth that I used to be sporting the corset backwards… however Rapunzel within the film has her ties within the entrance.. so I used to be simply making an attempt to emulate that the very best I might.

I in all probability might have tied it higher, however nonetheless. 😐

2. Sailor Venus

A second no-brainer for me was dressing up as Sailor Venus… though it was a tie between her and Sailor Moon. The truth is, it’s my purpose to work my method via cosplaying the entire Sailor Scouts

This costume, I used to be fairly pleased with as a result of I made most of it from scratch.

Objects I bought to deliver this to life:

What I DIYed:

  • The Tiara made out of thick inventory paper, Gold letter lower outs, and a plastic gems
  • Skirt and the cape (…Is it a cape?), utilizing some shiny satin cloth I bought at Michaels.
    • Skirt Directions HERE (although I simply security pinned it collectively right here).
    • Cape Directions HERE
  • Love Chain, utilizing crimson and gold beads from Michaels.

I didn’t take many footage of the again, however you’ll be able to see how I styled my field braids under, and just a little tiny peek of the yellow bow.

3. Tinkerbell

Or… Mom Nature…. or Princess Tiana with Blonde Hair….

This costume was admittedly VERY low effort. I obtained the costume off SHEIN once more, tied up my hair in a big bun, threw on a inexperienced head wrap so as to add a bit extra *flavour*… and was good to go.

If I had been capable of finding some wings, I feel the imaginative and prescient would have been a lot clearer…As a result of because it stood, nobody actually knew who I used to be making an attempt to be. It’s giving a bit extra of a Disney-Bounding vibe, greater than something.

However fortunately we now have Photoshop AI to assist us out.. okay possibly AI has a methods to go…
