A Little Voodoo Magic

What do you do when you don’t know what to be for Halloween? If you’re like me, you go to Goodwill! I never fail to find inspiration — and fantastic savings — while I’m there!

Take this Halloween for example. My husband and I had decided what we thought we wanted to be: I would be Cleopatra and he would be Marc Anthony. But when we got to Goodwill, other ideas began to surface. It all began when he spotted a new voodoo priest hat. Yes, I said new! Did you know Goodwill has TONS of news items for sale, especially in their Planet Halloween section? Now you do! Insider tip: All Halloween new items are now ON SALE! Go HERE for more info. 

That super cool hat inspired him to look for a dark suit to complete his voodoo priest outfit, and I went searching online for ideas. Which is where I got the idea to be a voodoo doll, sort of like this:


I went on the hunt for a simple dress that could be used as the basis for this voodoo doll look. Easy peasy. I quickly found a neutral t-shirt dress perfect for tearing up, and well under $10! I found a red donated children’s t-shirt to rip up for my heart and patches. Next, I went hunting for a little doll I could hold, and I could hardly believe it when I found the perfect one. Missing a leg, but that’s all part of the voodoo fun! This was my inspiration for my own doll to hold:

My husband, meanwhile, was using this scary dude as his inspiration:

He ended up finding a great sport coat and a sort of metallic shirt, along with lots of new accessories (from Goodwill!) to complete the look.

This is our final look, and I think WE NAILED IT! What do you think?
