This year was a special one as we got to attend the Mystical Masquerade in Lindon, Utah. The rules are black tie attire or costume, so we wanted costume that was close to black tie. We searched high and low for inspiration and finally found what we wanted.
Dick Tracy it was.
The main problem with Dick Tracy is it has fallen out of popularity and is hard to find anything, let alone quality costumes for him. We found and special ordered the hat and found a trench coat online. He had the rest in his closet. As for me, We went for Breathless Mahoney and I didn’t think I could go for Madonna’s version. I was feeling the comic one pretty strongly though. With a Veronica Lake vibe. I actually had most of everything I needed. I just picked up the wig, cigarette holder, and gloves.
Make up was probably the trickiest and I used a tutorial you can find here:
It turned out really well!
We had so much fun at the party! Here’s some more fun costume ideas:
