Dragon Con 2015: Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors Costume

Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors with Baby Audrey II Plant Cosplay for Dragon Con 2015

If you know me, you know my favorite movie of all time is Little Shop of Horrors, the musical about a man-eating plant featuring songs written by the same duo who wrote the music in The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. Dressing as Audrey has been on my costume bucket list since I was 12 and I finally did it for Dragon Con this year! 

I think a lot of my putting it off was needing blonde hair or a wig and needing an Audrey 2 plant of my own. Both of those needs were finally met. I'm especially excited about having my own Audrey 2 handmade by my mom (thanks Mom!) and put in a vintage Maxwell House coffee can just like in the movie. My Audrey 2 is now proudly displayed on my book shelf.

The other parts of the outfit were pretty easy to put together. This leopard print dress has been in my wardrobe for about 7 years and, though it's sleeveless, is a pretty good match for an Audrey dress. I treated myself to these fancy Nine West leopard print heels because I knew I'd be walking in them a good bit that day and didn't want horribly uncomfortable shoes. Plus I've been wanting a nice pair of leopard print heels. To me they're as versatile as nice black heels! I completed the look with a wig bought off Amazon and some baby blue eye shadow that you can't see very well here.

Someone at Dragon Con asked me if my hair here was real and I guess it looks pretty good from afar but it's definitely shinier than real hair. People who see these pictures keep telling me I should go blonde too. Well, I'm naturally dishwater blonde-ish so most colors look pretty normal on me. So no, I didn't dye my hair! It's just a wig. I'm scared if I went blonde I'd be too tempted to dye it pink or blue...

So what do you think of my Friday Dragon Con outfit? Was it a hit? I had a few people ask me for a picture so that's a win in my book! I'll probably be wearing this costume for Halloween this year too, so you might see it again.

The blonde really does suit you! First time visiting your blog and at first I though MY GOD, I want her hair, haha! I've been toying with getting a wig, I think I should bite the bullet and just buy one!
