Growing up in the Geulasse household, my sister and I were often told by our mother that Marilyn Monroe was a starlet hussy who would burn in the fiery pits of hell because she was too beautiful. Then our mother would turn to us and say, “You both are so lucky you weren’t blessed with looks. You will live long lives. But you’ll still burn in hell.” And then she would leave the house for a week or two. Hah, motherhood is such a trip!
But let’s be honest here, there is no one more incredible than Marilyn Monroe- much to mother’s chagrin. Marilyn was not only a bombshell and a wonderful actress, but an inspiration as a woman. That’s why I’ve dressed up as her every year for Halloween- ever since I was FIVE years old! (In fact that photo at the top is me at eight- though I still wish we could have afforded color film back then…)
This year I’m going for the PERFECT Marilyn Singing the President ‘Happy Birthday’ costume- it’s so easy!!!
Intrigued? Well absolutely anyone can try for this costume. All you have to do is bid on this dress and find a wig like this you will LITERALLY could not have a more accurate Marilyn Monroe costume AND IT ONLY TOOK TWO STEPS. Just make sure it fits before bidding… otherwise you might end of spending quite a bit on something you won’t even be able to wear 🙁
For makeup: try a thin, wingtip eyeliner in black and add a beauty mark above your lip if you’re feeling really sassy.
Want to get even more into character? Sing her rendition of Happy Birthday to anyone you run into! I love Halloween.
