Dress Up with your Bratz Besties

The past couple weeks we’ve given ideas and tips about costumes to make this Halloween absolutely boo-tiful, but today we want to talk about some costume ideas for you and your friendz! Halloween is such a fun time of the year, why not make it even more fun and coordinate outfits? Cloe, Yasmin, Sasha and I were hanging one day and exchanging ideas about group costumes. Here are a few of my favorite suggestions that the girlz had –

Cloe thought it’d be super fun if we all dressed up as some of the U.S Women’s soccer team players. Those ladies are super fierce and confident! They even won the gold medal this year at the Olympics in London. Talk about super stars! The costume would be really easy to create. All a gal needs is some black or blue athletic shorts, a soccer jersey shirt, some knee high socks, and athletic shoes. Finish off the look by carrying around a soccer ball. Get in the spirit and wear red, white and blue so everyone knows who you are! Cloe called dibs on Alex Morgan. Which player would you be?

Jade got all science on us Bratz and said we should be mad scientists. LOL! The outfits (as Kool Kat told us) would be a cinch to create and we’re guaranteed to be the koolest science girlz on the block! Start the costume out with your everyday clothes, add a white lab coat, and carry around some beakers filled with colored water (use food coloring). Next, pull up your hair in a ponytail but try to make it as messy as you can. That’s how you get the “mad” part of the scientist.

Sasha was creative with her idea and suggested we all be a swarm of busy bees. Get it? It’s because Sasha is a busy bee! There are plenty of bee costumes at stores to buy, or you can make your own from home. Grab a yellow shirt and stripe it with black electrical tape to create the bees’ body. You can do the same with the shorts, or just wear a pair of black shorts. Wings and antennas are the final touch and your swarm is ready to hit the streets in search of honey candy!

A Stylin’ Starz Halloween

Hi there, boo-z! There are all sorts of glam-ific fun in store this Halloween here at the Bratz house, but some of our friends are still having trouble deciding what to dress up as. With so many options out there to choose from, it’s no wonder our Bratzies can’t decide!

Last week we talked about how to create your very own Bratzillaz costume, so now we are going to help out with tips on how to create a Bratz Style Starz. Our style star look is super pop glam and all about having fun. We know if anyone can be a style star best it’s our Bratzies!

Here’s how to create your very own Bratz Style Starz costume in 5 easy steps –

  1. Pick your Star: choose your Bratz Style Starz girl or you can be a combo of all of us!
  2. Style it up: Take a look in your closet for the funkiest, brightest and fun clothes. The bolder, the better. Think Hollywood glam like Selena Gomez, Bella Thorne and Katy Perry. Remember to mix and match styles, patterns and fabrics!
    Extra tip – ask mom, sister(s) and / or friends to make a visit to their closets for extra options to choose from
  3. Always Accessorize: grab some super trendy sunglasses, shoes (like your princess pouf sandals, if you have them) and plenty of bracelets to complete your glam look.
  4. ‘Do your Hair: ask for some help curling the hair or ask if anyone has a fun wig to borrow. The bigger the hair, the better!
  5. Mic-up: Every star needs a microphone! If you don’t already have a toy (or real) microphone handy, you can make your own. Grab a tennis ball and the cardboard from a used paper towel roll and tape them together. Next, wrap it all up black (or any color) tissue paper.

Now you Starz are camera-ready for Glam-oween! For extra star fun, be sure to download the Bratz Style Starz app for the iPhone and iPad. You can document your rockin’ style and snap photos using the Bratz Cam, sing the night away along with us in karaoke, OR even create your very own songs. Go ahead Starz, sing your heart out!

Wishing all our friendz a very stylin’, safe and HAPPY GLAM-oween

Trick or Treat!
Yasmin, Sasha, Jade & Cloe

Bratz’ Tips for a Balanced Life

Hiya friends! With the school year well under way and tons of holidays quickly approaching, we thought we should talk about the importance of taking care of your mind, body & spirit. Sometimes life gets busy and the first person that gets neglected is the one we should pay the most attention to – ourselves!

Always remember a balanced life is a healthy life, so take charge and take care of yourself. Here are 5 tips that we try to keep in the back of our minds all year round!

  1. Get plenty of Sleep –Bratzies need at least 8 hours of beauty sleep a night
  2. Drink lots of Water – be sure to stay hydrated
  3. Be Active – make an effort to do something physical for at least 20 minutes per day. Try swimming, yoga, running, pilates, stretching, hiking or even a walk around the neighborhood.
  4. Eat Right –eat a day’s worth of fruits & veggies and avoid all that candy. It’s like Mom always said – “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!”
  5. Treat Yourself – whether it’s sitting with family or friends, watching a good movie or reading a book, do something you enjoy when there is free time.
