When he’s done, she catches him eyeing the food and says to him “I know your behind not thinking about fixing a plate. Ya bettah think about fixing that attitude of yours before you get bust upside the head”

A Leia to Your Han

Peter Parker x Reader

I have wanted to write something for Peter dressed up as Han Solo for so long and after seeing this picture, I couldn’t put it off any longer. I might have more to add on to this later, but I was too excited after this post to not put this up now.

Summary: You’d wanted to earn that stupid smile of his the moment it had graced his face. That was how you’d found yourself sifting through racks looking for pieces you could use to make yourself a matching set; a Leia to go with his Han. Words: 1.3k. FLUFFY - LOOKING WORD HERDER.

Happy Belated Halloween.


Holding onto the trailing edge of the white dress, fabric bunched between sweaty, nervous fingers and hem flapping over the boots you’d managed to find at a thrift store, you carefully navigated the crowded jittery hallway full of excited, costumed voices; classroom windows covered in festive webs, spiders, pumpkins, and bats hanging from ceiling tiles.

“Happy Halloween!” you shouted across a few heads and shoulders, waving back at your friend from English as she smiled at you, giving you a thumbs up and a wink; your cheeks heating at the gesture.

She knew what, or who, had influenced your costume this year.

Yours eyes focused on the way the silky fabric caught in the light, shimmering as it moved over the tile around your feet, secret smile pulling at your lips as you thought about him, thought about the smile you knew this would put on his face.

You’d convinced him that you weren’t dressing up this year.

And truthfully, you hadn’t planned on it. Not until his eyes had lit up and that stupid smile had pushed up at freckled cheeks and long eyelashes when he’d talked about dressing up as his favorite hero this year.

He was contagious; convincing without words, without really meaning to be.

You’d wanted to earn that stupid smile of his the moment it had graced his face.

You wanted it always.

That was how you’d found yourself sifting through racks looking for pieces you could use to make yourself a matching set; a Leia to go with his Han. Your stomach flipped over itself again as you thought about it; the warmth that was Peter spreading through nervous limbs as it always did.

You’d nearly collided with a crude rendition of the Hulk, long face painted green, sloppy, black penciled brows rising as eyes caught on your hair, white teeth shining in contrast with the verdant color of his lips as he laughed.

You rolled your eyes at him as you passed, already pushing it aside as you found the lines of a familiar set of broad shoulders, of long, lean legs wrapped tightly in blue fabric, the backs of ears that maybe stuck out a little too much, and toffee colored waves that forever had your heart tossing in the sea of adoration.

He pulled off his thrifted costume well.

“Well, hello, Solo,” words catching on the tail end of a chuckle as you came to a stop in front of the locker nearest his, fingertips grazing over the fabric of the vest he’d carefully draped over his shoulders.

Here’s Day 9 of 31 DIY’s Til Halloween!
I’ve been looking forward to this one forever. This is Billy the Puppet from the Saw films (not to be mistaken for Jigsaw himself!) and was seriously so simple to put together. The main parts are the white collared shirt, red bow tie, black blazer, and of course the makeup. Having black hair doesn’t hurt ;) Honestly I think any costume doesn’t need to be an exact imitation of the character you’re dressing as, it’s way more fun to put together clothes and accessories that are accessible to you and that work for your style and your body. That’s the spirit of DIY!

I’m wearing sheer black tights, black thigh high stockings, and a basic black tank top from my closet. The thigh highs can be found in any lingerie shop (I’ve had mine forever and don’t remember exactly where I got them.) The garter belt I’m wearing is the Rago Six-Strap Suspender Belt. i found mine on Amazon in black. The pleather skirt is from H&M in NYC last winter but I’ve seen them at several stores lately.

The white shirt is that same thrifted little boys’ button down that I found for $1.99 and have used for so many different costumes already this week! The bow tie was $1.29 at the dollar store and the black blazer I also thrifted for $5.99 at Value Village (obviously my second home).
I’m wearing my platforms that my hubby gave me for my birthday. I’m addicted to these shoes and I need to change it up soon! I promise I will!

The makeup is the fun part of this costume.
I used Graftobian white grease paint base. I have a hookup at a local costume shop because I did makeup and photos for our city’s Zombie Walk last weekend, and I’m working at the city’s biggest and best-rated haunted house for all of this month. This stuff ain’t cheap but it lasts for ages and if necessary if you do a lot of special effects makeup (this is my job, so I have budgeted for it.) Costume shops and Halloween stores sell similar grease paint / face base this time of year for $1-5, and that would work just as well!

I’m wearing a NYX Retractable Lip Liner in Ruby and MAC Ruby Woo lipstick. The spirals on my cheeks are done in basic red face paint from the dollar store and I went over it with the same NYX lip liner. I did my normal eyebrow routine and eyeliner. The eyeshadow is a smudged/blended/blown-out mix of browns and pinks, I wanted it to look super bruisy and sunken. It looked way more intense in person but I shot these photos in direct daylight. The “puppet” lines can be done with any black liquid liner.

Now that I’m back on schedule, a new DIY Halloween costume will be posted every day until Halloween! Sometimes more than one if I’m feeling ambitious!

jeremwood dad au where every halloween jeremy makes family costumes. Jeremy going through thrift stores and costume shops to find the perfect outfits for himself, Ryan and their two kids. Just like that time where they’re all the mystery inc gang and their daughter holds scooter on a leash as scooby until he gets too stressed and Jeremy has to bring him home while Ryan leads the kids around.

Or when they’re powerful girl characters where the kids are bubbles and buttercup, ryan is prof utonium, and Jeremy is mojo jojo. the kids try to make the cat be blossom but after last year Jeremy’s thought ahead and decided to organize with one of the kid’s friends whose parents can’t take them so they have a trio.

Or who could forget the year they all went as eachother and Ryan has clip on pig tails and their son has the baggiest pair of jeans jeremy could find.
