As I explained in a previous post, the decision to celebrate Halloween this year was a bit of a last minute decision, so this made putting together a costume a bit tricky. Due to this, I decided to go with a simple outfit that I could put together easily and cheaply. I have dressed up many times over the years as everything from a tiger, to a cheerleader, to a wizard, so this year I thought I’d go with something a bit more traditional – a vampire. I figured this would be a fairly straightforward choice as the clothes can be pretty much your own choosing, and it’s the make-up that creates the final effect.
The dress I managed to pick up for a very reasonable £20, and it’s hopefully a part of the outfit I’ll get to wear again. I already had the studded shoes, so that was something I didn’t need to buy, and there’s no need for breaking them in before the night. I also already had the choker, and I haven’t worn that as much as I’d like, so this is a great opportunity to wear it again. I kept the red theme going from the dress to the fake nails. I like the mixture of glitter and plain colour, and think they’ll be good to use again, maybe at Christmas time. Lastly, I went for individual fangs rather than a full set of teeth so I think they’ll finish off the costume nicely.
