These photos were of my outfit/costume for my college's big Halloween event, Halloweenfest, where we decorate the dorms and all the clubs come up with activities for underprivileged neighborhood children, so they can come go through the "haunted houses" and get candy and do fun things. It's a lot of fun, even for us college students, haha. So this year I decided to be steampunk—and I didn't even have to buy any extra costume additions!

Not gonna lie, I'd probably wear a toned down version of this outfit on a regular day. I'm really proud of how everything came together so well. I decided to enter these photos/this outfit into both the Chictopia & Lookbook DIY Halloween costume competitions, so please vote for me!
Also, can we talk about how I scored this awesome coat for $5?! I'm still amazed. I looove the buttons, they're so retro!
What did you dress up as for Halloween?
