Halloween Style

As hard as it is for me to imagine there are those of us who don’t quite care for Halloween or perhaps don’t even like the idea of dressing up! Personally, I will take any opportunity I can to dress up and get into costume / character.  If you’re not so keen on the idea of a costume here is my pick for a great outfit.  You’ll have to excuse the light as it was really bad when the photo was taken but I kind of look like a ghost which I like.

I’m obsessed with this t-shirt.  I got it very recently in Penneys and it is €6.  I absolutely adore it.

Any black skirt will do the job or black jeans if you’d prefer.  There are plenty of Halloween tights in shops at the moment and there’s an abundance of skeleton legs.  If you’d feel more comfortable in tights then opt for a seasonal pair.

I made my Halloween shoes last year and they were really simple to do.  They started off life as an ugly white pair.  I printed Halloween shapes and characters on photo paper and glued them on using pva.  When they were dry I applied pva to the rest of the shoes and sprinkled purple glitter over them.  I went over the shapes with Modge Podge.

I bought the Boo clutch in Penneys about two years ago and got it in the clearance section for  €2; I was delighted with myself.  It is a pretty big bag so I can fit my flats in it because I really can’t walk in heels.

I threw a faux leather jacket on.  Any Halloween hairband will do the job and there are loads available in shops like EuroGiant and Dealz.  Finally I added the Kiss of Death, black lip kit from Makeup Revolution.

So there you have it: a really simple Halloween look.
