Halloween is one of my favourite holidays. Even when I was very young crying on the floor demanding my mother would allow me to go trick or treating on my own since none of my sisters were interested...
Throughout the years I've been all the typical things: a devil, a witch, a vampire (too many times!), just donning a scary face mask or the lazy cheap idea of being a 'dead Eda'. This year I had to plan my outfit very last minute (being a couple of hours before heading out). As I racked my brains for something that was different, cheap, easy but still quite stylish looking, I remembered the Lady Gaga video 'Born This Way' with Rick Genest (the guy who permanently has his face tattooed as a skeleton).
I trawled through endless Youtube make up tutorials on how to do it, either they required too many make up tools or didn't look the way I wanted it to...I finally came across iwanted2c1video and her tutorial was just amazing, all I needed was an eyeliner!
Ok so I'm not the most talented make up artist, my face was no way near as good as in Lady Gaga's video, but I think I still looked scary (which is the whole point of Halloween, right?!) and people did like it and realise what I was aiming for.
So what do you think?
Alicia was a 'woman killed and drowned by her husband'. Pretty dark stuff haha!
I'm wearing:H&M Leather Panelled Trousers
H&M white shirt
Oh dear! I didn't realise until just now writing it all done that I was head to toe H&M! Haha!
However my 'bowtie', well just a ribbon...was actually the straps of my old Topshop canvas shopper bag, tied together and put around my neck as a bow.
Hope you all had a good Halloween!
