Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday; we are going to continue our Halloween series by talking about one of the most important parts of Halloween (no not the candy, although that is VERY important), we’re going to talk about Halloween costumes! We’re VERY close to October 31st, so if you don’t already have your Halloween costume ready then these videos will help you out. Most of the videos don’t involve too much extra work, except #1 which involves some sewing. So now let’s get to the costumes! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
3) The first video that we’re going to talk about is the ’30 Last-minute DIY Halloween Costume Ideas’ by CloeCouture, which was uploaded on October 25th, 2014. I really loved this video because it is such a cool and creative video. Most of the costumes are made up of stuff you can either buy or make easily, and there are so many costumes in the video that I’m sure you’ll find something that you’ll fall in love with. Whether you want your costume this year to look cute, unique, or you want to look like your favorite TV/movie/book character or pop culture figure (for example, Dolly Parton costume), you could find the PERFECT costume for you. Also, the video is EXTREMELY entertaining to watch, so it’s definitely one you don’t want to miss!
2) Next up we have the ‘DIY Last Minute Easy & Cheap Halloween Costume Ideas for Teens’ by Alexa Mae video, which was uploaded on October 16th, 2015. Alexa is a YouTuber that we’ve spoken about before (you can check out that blog post here:YouTube Wednesday: Alexa Mae…the new YouTuber that you will spend your whole spring break obsessing over), and this video just continues to prove what an amazing guru she has become. In this video she shows us how to easily make 3 costumes that will be perfect for anyone who wants a unique/cute look this Halloween. My personal favorite is the popcorn costume, but they’re all AMAZING so definitely check this one out.
1) ‘DIY “THE DRESS”/DRESSGATE HALLOWEEN COSTUME’ by TheSorryGirls, which was uploaded on October 15th, 2015. Ok y’all it’s back, THE DRESS. You know the dress that divided the internet, and haunted our nightmares for weeks, yup that dress. As soon as I saw this video I knew that it had to make the list because this costume is just so amazing. It does require some sewing, but this costume is so worth it. If you want a super unique video that will give your friends a laugh this Halloween then definitely check out this video.
Hello people of the internet! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to discuss Alexa Mae, an AMAZING 18 year old beauty, fashion, lifestyle guru from Wisconsin that you NEED to check out. If you aren’t already subscribed to Alexa’s channel, then you definitely need to ASAP because she is a YouTube star on the rise that shows no signs of slowing down. In just about 3 1/2 months (as of March 11th, 2015), she had already gained 12,885 subscribers, and 135,437 total channel views. Honestly how insane is that? If you’re still not convinced that you should subscribe (like right this very second), then check out a few of Alexa’s videos below and prepare to become her #1 fan.
The first video that we’re going to talk about is Alexa’s ‘My Night Routine Holiday Edition!’ video, which was uploaded on November 25th, 2014. This is probably one of the best debut videos that I’ve ever seen on YouTube. All of the technical aspects like lighting and editions are perfect, and Alexa’s personality really shines throughout the video. Through this video Alexa is able to keep us interested in what she’s saying, and definitely makes you want to continue watching her videos. Honestly with such a strong start, I’m excited to see how good her videos will be years from now.
The next video that we’re going to discuss is Alexa’s ‘Cute & Easy DIY Mason Jar Room Decor’ video, which was uploaded on January 9th, 2015. I thought that this was a really cool idea, and with spring right around the corner, these jars will definitely add a little fun to your decor. Personally I really love that this DIY is easy to follow, and versatile enough that you can add your own style to make each jar unique. These also make really cool (and cheap) gifts for family and friends if you’re on a budget (or you spent all of your money at Starbucks…again).
This is definitely a fun video to check out, and I highly suggest that you try out this DIY. Now we’re going to talk about Alexa’s ‘What’s on my iPhone + How I Edit Instagram Photos!’ video, which was uploaded on February 23rd, 2015. Now admit it, we all love seeing what cool apps other people have on their phones. I was honestly really excited to see this video because you can tell that Alexa knows how to edit (I mean look at how great her videos are edited). The thing that I liked best about this video was the fact that the process that Alexa uses to edit her photos isn’t difficult to follow, and the end result will make all your selfies look very cool.
The last video that we’re going to talk about is Alexa’s ‘Huge Spring Haul 2015!’, which was uploaded on March 7th, 2015. Now y’all know that we’re not going to talk about a beauty/fashion guru and now include a haul video. As you can probably guess, I LOVED this video (honestly it’s hard not to love Alexa’s videos). I think that it’s fun to check out what other people buy because you really get a sense of their style and personality, and you can get a lot of cool outfit ideas from these videos. Alexa definitely found a lot of cute spring pieces that you will all want to run out and get right now.
