Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!! BIG NEWS! Life Absorbed’s past Halloween photos made it onto Buzzfeeds top 22 Best Iconic TV Costumes for Halloween! My college group costume of Golden Girls made the list (I’m Rose), and so did last years Lamb Chop and Shari Lewis costume! How exciting!

Now I’ve given you some costume ideas in THIS POST¬†and even given you clues like this picture…


Can you tell who I’m going as? Jessica Fletcher (aka Angela Lansbury) in Murder She Wrote!




Here’s a breakdown of the costume:

The wig was $28 total from Wilshire Wigs ($5 off for buying off the mannequin). The sweater, shirt, and book were $7 total at Salvation Army. I spray painted the book and hand painted “Murder, She Wrote” using paint I already owned. The scarf was $12 at Marshalls, and the pants were $8 in the Target clearance rack. The socks, shoes and magnifying glass were recycled from 2011’s Nancy Drew costume. The clip on earrings were hand-me-downs from relatives. In total I spent $55 and hopefully I can reuse some of the elements (like my fun new scarf!).

I hope you all are having a spooktacular holiday! BOO!
