corset, tutu skirt: Ebay - tights: H&M - feathers: part of a dollarstore/euroshop boa - flats: Texto
OK so I was gone for two days because I had my Halloweenparty on Sunday and went to see Skyfall (RECOMMENDATION!) on Monday, so my evenings were pretty busy and I had literally NO time to blog. Sorry! But here I am in ALL of my glory, to share pictures of my costume with you. The photographs of the party will go up tomorrow!
I am pretty fracking stoked about how well my Black Swan Halloween costume turned out. The corset and the tutu skirt were bought together on Ebay at some slightly fetishy store but it was cheap and I figured I could totally wear the corset again in some other setting (yeah, the boyfriend is very pleased). I did my hair up in a sock bun and the shoes are simply my black flats with some ribbon tied around my feet and ankles.
The make up might look cool but it was RIDICULOUSLY easy. The hardest part is probably the outline around my eyes: pointed down from eyebrows to halfway down my nose ending in a V shape, straight across the eyebrows and underneath the eyes, tapering towards the hairline. But if you get that rough shape right, you just have to fill up the outline with squiggly lines. Srsly. That's all I did. Without any perfectionism. It just looks RAD without effort.
Apart from that I just slapped on white face paint all over my face + dark red lipstick, plus some of the fake blood that came with my sister's vampire teeth to go on my index finger. I think we all remember that scene (DO NOT CLICK IF YOU'RE QUEASY IN ANY WAY).
Like it? I sure did! Especially after loosening the lacing on the back of my corset so that I could actually breathe. What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
