I Love Lucy Costume Tutorial

Lucy you got some ‘splainin’ to do!! Aww Riickkkkeeeyyyy!! Did anyone else grow up on hearing that!? I Love Lucy is such an amazing and iconic show that it would be really hard for me not to make it into a costume! I grew up watching the show, so it was a blast to be Lucy for a night! The best part of this costume is that it’s so simple!


First thing you’ll want to do is your hair! Luckily, it’s pretty easy to do also! First thing you need to do is section off the front bang part of your hair. You’ll want to curl it straight backwards and then roll it. It should make a roll right in the front of your head.


Next, you’ll want to curl the sides. Once that’s done, take the sides and slick them back, then pin. It should kind of look like a curly mohawk going down your head. If you have any pieces sticking out in weird ways, spin it into a curl and pin it down. Easy, right?


After your hair is done, it’s time for makeup! I made a cat eye and lots of mascara to open up those peepers! Add some blush and red lips and you’re good to go!


For the clothing part you’ll need a polka dot dress and some pearls!


To really give the Lucy effect, make a bottle of Vitameatavegimin and carry a spoon!



Make gross faces, but really try to sell that stuff! Remember to shout catchphrases like “Rickeeyyyy” and fake cry a lot! Bonus points if you’re a redhead!


❤ Lucy for the evening
