Sunday

happy HALLOWEEN!

getting ready-

all finished!-

it's..... POISON IVY!!!!

(L-R) Corpse Bride, Poison Ivy, Black Widow, Catwoman, Geisha-

it looks like we planned our costumes to match! haha, he's Peter Pan (he even had the tights!)-

I found my twin!! it's another Poison Ivy!-





Fun night! Poison Ivy was a pretty fun character to portray! My favorite part was the make-up (which took over an hour to put on and almost equally as much time to take off) I think it really added to the much needed costume element. I tried to emulate a twist on the traditional Poison Ivy look. I only saw one other Poison Ivy all weekend and she was a more traditional one.
My first idea was to dress up as Rosie the Riveter (we can do it!) but I just didn't feel very inspired about that. So I decided to be the Morton Salt girl (when it rains it pours!) but nobody is selling yellow dresses this time of year. So when I found this beautiful vintage, emerald (my favorite color), robe I knew I had to be Poison Ivy. It was pretty easy from there because I already had the leggings and make-up, all I needed was ivy- which I got a strand of at the craft store. Sadly the 'leaves' didn't stay on the 'branch' very well so it took me approximately 4 days to hand sew them all onto a sash and headband. Only regret- not having bigger hair! :)
What did you all dress up as? And how was your halloween?

You look stunning! My old flatmates girlfriend did poison ivy a couple of years ago and was nowhere near as good as this. Your hair and make up looks fabulous! I went as Lady Gaga but so did someone else who's blog I read and vice versa and I feel like I've copied her even though I'd thought of it before she mentioned it and I feel awkward putting the pictures up! Here's the link to the facebook album if you are bored - I need to show someone! :) x

They do ship to the US yes - www.newlook.co.uk but the shipping is £7.50. I'll let you know what its like and advise you whether it is worth the shipping fee. I take it you haven't seen my massive comment above but that includes my hallowe'en details... and yes we ripped the fire alarm off the ceiling so theres now a bit of a hole up there haha..

Also how can I follow your blog? I always mean to ask and then forget! :) x
