Sally from ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ Halloween Costume Makeup/Facepaint Tutorial Video

This is my first attempt at a tutorial video so I hope it is easy to follow. I made up my Sally costume and then made-up my face. Normally I would paint it, but this time I used mostly makeup for a more durable look and for those of you out there who don’t necessarily have a face painting kit lying around (in which case I ask you, really, what have you been doing with your life?) Here is the video;

Fashion on a pumpkin

I love, love, love Disney villainesses – the eyebrows, the lipstick, the dramatic collars, the insane headgear, the gothic pets… what’s not to love? So this year I attempted Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty on my pumpkin. Not my most impressive result, but one of my favourite topics:

All Hallows Eve: The Revelation – Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas

Here it is, a secret no longer! Inspired by my favourite director and one of my favourite films, this quirky, creepy character was the perfect choice for this years costume. I started with an old strapless tube dress and some colourful rags and added a wig, blue tights, makeup + face paint (tutorial to follow). So, without further ado, my 2012 halloween costume;

What to Wear on the 31st October, 2012: Halloween Costume Ideas

As you already know, my favourite day of the year is coming up and I can’t wait. The drama! The campness! the fabulosity! The high gothic aesthetic! So I’ve been thinking and planning and planning and thinking. Some years I have floods of ideas, and other years my imagination is dry as a bone, silent as a grave, in this crucial month (no pun etc).

In case you are having this trouble, here are my top six halloween ideas for this year, feel free to steal them! Unfortunately, it is only one night a year, but here are costumes I’d dearly like to make this year; the white queen from Alice in Wonderland, Frida Kahlo, Nicki Minaj, Harley Quinn from Batman, a beheaded french aristocrat (because I’ve already been a clean Marie: see right), a venetian mask (but your real face, just painted)

Ah well, maybe next year. What will you be 🙂 ?

Halloween Outfits

So I LOVE halloween. It is not just my favourite night, but my favourite time of year. I love everything about it, and now that we are in October its officially okay for me to start planning. I’ve started obsessing about my costume, so I took a glance back at recent costumes. From left to right, row by row;
old man tramp, white swan, Columbia from Rocky Horror, Cavewoman
Poison Ivy, Columbia, Clown
Queen of Hearts, Schoolgirl, Thing 1 from Dr. Seuss, Ginger Spice, Carnival
