Leaving you to ponder this for too long is potentially dangerous, so here's a distracting compilation of all my Halloween 2013 costumes.
1. Pop Art
This was put together very last-minute for MCM Comic Con, inspired by Roy Lichtenstein's art. Mostly it just involved orange face paint and a LOT of eyeliner. Drawing on those dots took fucking forever.

2. 50s movie character
After reading this inspiring blogpost, I decided to go greyscale for Halloween and aimed for a 50s-inspired look.
Top - Collectif
Skirt - Coast
Behind the scenes:
|Originally, we were meant to go as a greyscale couple, but he flipped out when I brought out the eyeliner and wouldn't let me paint the rest of his face..|
3. Last-minute Cruella De Vil
I got invited to a Disney pub crawl in Shoreditch, and was too lazy to go home and change, so I concocted this with what little clothes I had at my boyfriend's... Fun fact: I've owned this faux fur jacket since I was 6 years old and my cousin's bridesmaid. It's served me well.
|People kept complimenting me on my 'white face makeup'... I wasn't wearing any. Sob.|
4. Creepy nondescript Tim Burton character
Inspired by Emma Pickles' makeup tutorial, I wore this for Voodoo Rock Night.
Corset - Primark
Skirt - Topshop
Armwarmers - Claire's
Annoyingly, it turned out to be one of those cases where everything looked better during the makeup test than on the actual night.
