Halloween is probably my favorite holiday - I love, love, love doing a total makeover and inhabiting someone else for a few hours - but I haven't dressed up in a few years for lack of a place to show off a fab costume. We did a major costume contest at work this year, though. Cue Lauren to go a little nuts.
Since Cyndi Lauper's show was fresh in everyone's minds, it seemed the perfect time to whip out some fishnets, neon eyeshadow and tulle. I also get teased about my age, and proving I could go full-on 80s was a bonus wink to my colleagues. Check out some of my inspiration and the final product below.
