Costume time 2012: Honey Boo Boo

Honey Boo Boo was the pop culture sensation of the summer and she is everywhere you look now. My friends and I decided that someone had to be Honey Boo Boo for Halloween this year, and after some convincing, Yoanna finally did it.

Once she agreed, I got working on the costume. Since I had made so many tutus this year, I figured another one wouldn't be too bad, so I used pink this time and added a top layer of sparkly tulle to really make it pageant ready. The leftover tulle was transformed into poufy pageant sleeves that were added to a sequined tank top. Then a ribbon and some glitter paint made a perfect pageant sash to complete the look.

Honey Boo Boo needed to get into hair and makeup, so we got to work poufing up her hair and giving her pageant ready makeup. We added lots of sparkle and pink lips to match the dress. Then a bow and a crown and Honey Boo Boo was ready to go.

Accessories really made the look and her trophy and go-go juice (Mountain Dew) totally made her from regular pageant girl into Honey Boo Boo Child!

Crazy as it sounds, this was the only Honey Boo Boo in the whole office! She became a mini-celebrity and everyone wanted pictures of her and with her. Plus she totally got into character telling everyone to "Redneckognize" and "Holla for a dolla, Honey Boo Boo Child!"

What was your Halloween costume this year?
