Last year my Halloween sucked, and by sucked, I mean it really did suck! I didn't end up doing anything! I remember standing in the train station at 6pm, watching loads of people all getting excited to go to their Halloween parties, and a lot of them were already dressed up! I tried desperately hard to go to some sort of party but nothing was going on. This year, it's different!
Thankfully, the other night I heard about a pre-Halloween party, and that if you were dressed up, you got free entrance. Dressing up AND free entrance?! My type of party. It was extremely last minute so the only costume I could find and think of was a "dead fortune teller". If I'm honest, it was definitely more of an attractive than scary costume, but I had absolutely no time to prepare and I don't have any costumes lying around. Needless to say, it was very clear that I was dressed up, so no harm done.
The party was pretty good, it was underground and everyone had made a real effort, apart from this one guy who literally came in a cardboard box and called himself a present. I did find it quite amusing, I have to say.
But then something even better happened. I was told that on the 31st, J's aunt is having a party and everyone has to dress up! Now I have a solid week to prepare and last night I was searching the internet and racking my brain, trying to come up with the ultimate costume. And I found it...
Demented, demon, dead Alice in Wonderland!
I seriously can't wait. My friend and I are going into town on Monday to get everything we need.
So seeing as by the end of the month I will have dressed up twice for Halloween, I decided it would be a good idea to do a couple of blog posts on my outfit and makeup, I don't know, maybe it will serve as a little inspiration for some of you out there who can't decide what to dress up as.
The "tutorials" lets say will be going up sometime next week. My roommates are all leaving for the holidays today so I prefer to wait until everyone is gone, so that no one ends up knocking on my door and I have to answer it whilst looking like I've just come from Hell.
I'm also doing J's and his little brother's Halloween makeup (a skeleton and a zombie) so I might try it out on myself so I have an idea of what to do, and if it's any good I'll add in that "tutorial" for you all too. So keep your eyes peeled my lovelies!
Off to dream about traumatising little kids in my Alice in Wonderland costume...ahhh...
