Helen creates a bat inspired costume for today's Halloween DIY The Look.
I love bats, I love the way they flit across the sky in a seemingly random manner and at such a speed that you can never get a good look at them. They're mysterious, cute and a tiny bit scary...I'd like to pay homage to these nocturnal acrobats by creating a really cool bat costume. You could dress all in black and hang upside down but that could be a little difficult and give you a headache. Alternatively you could piece together a much more imaginative costume; you'd need a cool pair of wings and some neat ears of course and then you'd have to decide whether to go for a mask or some smoky eye make up...

TheSewingMaven recreates the 80's look of Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan.
Madonna has been a style icon since the 80’s. I love how she stays current and creates memorable trends that are femme noir.

Markee recreates the vintage look of Joan from Mad Men for today's Halloween DIY The Look.
I love Joan's style because she is sexy and confident in a fully retro wardrobe. She always looks smart, and knows exactly how to dress for her figure and complexion. I love that every aspect of her style is well thought out, from head to toe, she is a inspiration for any modern office gal who wants to exude that 60s secretary vibe.

Markee recreates the costume of Kim Novak in Hitchcock's Vertigo for today's Halloween #DIYTheLook.
Kim Novak was one of Hitchcock's stunning blonde leading ladies, and her wardrobe for her undercover character was full of class. Every detail of her outfit is thought out, from the colour palette, cut and accessories. It's magical to watch her transformation from being an average girl to an upper-class lady as she embodies her double agent role. Hitchcock always makes murder look glamorous!
