Halloween is definitely my favorite holiday of all time! My daughter loves it too and dressed up in The Descendants Mal costume one year.
I enjoy the costumes, and getting to dress-up, and being able to PRETEND to be someone else for a few hours.
And I’m a weirdo and I usually start planning and gathering everything I need for costumes in the summer. Mostly because I hate the annual Halloween pop-up stores – they’re too crowded, over-priced, nothing will fit correctly right off the shelf, and everything is handled and picked-through. Not my fave.
So I usually start prepping WAY in advance, but the prices are better and it gives me alot more time to make sure I’m happy with it and overall it’s a much less stressful experience for me.
Anyhow… I personally don’t dress up as much anymore since I’m usually focused on my daughter and her costume instead. She has an epic one planned for this year, and we’re all prepped and ready to go. I’ll keep it a secret until the big day but I can’t wait to share it with you all!
But in the meantime… I can post some pics of past costumes for you. The rest of this post is dedicated to the Descendants Mal costume, but if you would like more costume ideas for girls, I have a separate post located here: 11 Costume Ideas for Girls, which includes my daughter’s costumes as Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, Cruella DeVil, Jem and the Holograms, Ariel the Little Mermaid, Wonder Woman, and others…
The Descendants Mal Costume – The Look
Here’s a pic of my daughter dressed as Mal from Disney’s “The Descendants” movie.
This costume is quite easy to put together because you can buy mostly everything you need online. The only extra effort besides shopping is the makeup. And I only needed 2 specific makeup items for this look. Just the lipstick and the eyeshadow. I used the lipstick for both the lips and the heavy eyeliner. Then the eyeshadow just to shade the rest of her eyelids. But overall, very easy!
If you haven’t seen this movie yet, I recommend it as it was very cute with a GREAT soundtrack. I found myself listening to the music even outside of the movie itself since the tracks were so catchy. And the premise was interesting too – it centered around the teenage children of the famous Disney villians, and those teenage children had to share a high school with the children of the famous Disney heros. And it was entertaining seeing them interact with each other.
So if you haven’t seen it yet, I definitely recommend it.
