Looking for a last minute Halloween costume? Don’t want to spend the money on a nice new one or take a lot of time and effort to create your own? Perfect! I’ve got just what you’re looking for: a quick and easy Rosie the Riveter costume. To learn more about Rosie, check out the History Channel’s profile on her. I wore this Rosie the Riveter costume on Saturday night for our 2nd annual Halloween party and loved it. It was by far the most comfortable and warm costume I’ve worn in a while. Ready to do your own version of Rosie the Riveter costume? Great, let’s get you started!
For this costume, I bought one item– the denim shirt I wore. I could have easily gone to Goodwill or borrowed one from a friend but I’ve been wanting a chambray style shirt anyway so when I saw this one from Target, I knew it was worth the purchase for my costume and everyday wear! I borrowed some Old Navy navy blue pants,boots,lipstick/liner, and a bandana to pull this Rosie the Riveter costume together.
I did normal foundation base, neutral eye makeup, dark cat eye black liner on my upper lid, mascara, lip liner & lipstick that stayed put all night from Mac for my face. Then we just pulled up my hair in a simple twist and tied the bandana on top. I lucked out because my friend Bryan is in the military and let me borrow his American flag emblem to put on my sleeve. See? Easy!
Oh and just in case you were wondering….yes, that’s my hubs dressed up as a cop from Reno 9-1-1 so there’s an easy costume for your guys if you need one too!
What are you dressing up as for Halloween? Or, if not you, how about your kids? If you choose to go for my Rosie the Riveter costume, please let me know, would love to see it!!
