When it comes to holidays, I like to fully embrace the spirit of the season – and Halloween is no exception. Come Friday, you’ll find me with a stack of horror movies, plenty of hideous looking orange and green snacks and my Halloween playlist.
Monday in Wonderland
Cat Burglar Tuesday
D’ya get it? A cat burglar?
This is another costume that’s really easy to craft from your everyday wardrobe. It’s just the make-up that’s teeny bit different. Speaking of which – black lipstick was harder than I thought to source! I eventually found some at the Miss Sporty counter in Boots (not somewhere I’d visited since the early 2000s). But at least it was only £2.59! I’ll keep it in case I go through a latent Goth phase.
I’m a fan of any costume that involves a pun, but in case no one gets your unique and brilliant sense of humour, you could always say you’re Cat Woman.
Well, I’m off to cause mayhem in my bedazzled cat mask, see you tomorrow!
Wednesday on Wednesday
If you thought I looked a bit scary in the blonde wig, you’re in for a treat. Today’s costume is Miss Wednesday Addams! She’s certainly one of my favourite characters (and my, isn’t she quotable), so I was looking forward to emulating that contemptuous stare. As you can see, it needs a lot of work.
But the costume itself is another incredibly easy one. I think most girls have a peter-pan collar lurking in their wardrobe somewhere, so if you fancy being Wednesday, dig it out, powder your face white, add some dark shadow around your eyes and plait your hair. That’s it! I also used a kohl eyeliner to create her distinctive hairline, but unless you want to spend the rest of the evening scrubbing at your scalp with a make-up wipe, you may want to give that step a miss…
Throwback Thursday (yep, I went there)
Another confession: I still watch Sabrina the Teenage Witch (it really comes into its own once you reach adulthood). So, naturally, I couldn’t resist dressing up as my favourite spell caster for Halloween! Especially not when I have the perfect Salem awaiting his blogging debut – thanks Pepper cat.
This is a pretty vague costume (especially when you look nothing like Melissa Joan Hart), so I’d recommend only pulling this one out of the cauldron if you’re attending a 90’s or throwback themed party. But you could sub the sparks and feline pal for a stake and go as Buffy, or add plenty of pink and morph into Barbie. I even toyed with the idea of adding fake blood, ghoulish make up and leather leggings and becoming Zombie Lindsay Lohan. Ah, this blonde wig can be anything!
Visit again tomorrow to find out what my final costume is!
