This year for Halloween, two of my friends came to visit and we went out last weekend. My "husband" and I went as a zombie bride and groom and my friends went as Lydia and Beetlejuice from the 80's/90's cartoon (you may have watched this on TV when you were a kid if you are my age).
I made a huge mess making my costume. I acquired an 80's style wedding dress from a thrift store and ripped it up and spray painted it with black and red fabric paint and then applied fake blood. I did the same to an old white purse and white gloves that I found at the thrift store as well. For my veil, I sewed some sheer netting fabric from the craft store to a headband from WalMart and glued on flowers from the craft store. I put fake blood on these as well. I made my bouquet out of flowers and glitter spiders from the craft store. I wrapped the stems with gauze covered in fake blood.
For my makeup, I applied a white base and then sponged over it with black and red powder makeup. I also created fallout from a brush with loose eyeshadows of the same colours. I made some "wounds" and added some texture to my skin by using fake eyelash glue. I also added some stitches to the side of my lip and on my chest by gluing pieces of thread to my skin with eyelash glue. I got some really neat green prescription contacts to finish off the look.
I did my nails with a white background and sponged black and red over top. I made blood drops using a dark burgundy colour.
I think the makeup turned out pretty well and it didn't take very in the end.
THE BRIDE AND GROOM
LYDIA AND BEETLEJUICE
My friend sewed the red and black spiderweb cape herself!
We found a priest to marry us when we went out, lol!
My favourite costume of the night was Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys. I am a huge Trailer Park Boys fan! It is a Canadian show, I am not sure if anyone out there has watched this before.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM PANTIES TIGGER, HALF-ASSED WINNIE THE POOH, AND ME!
Did you have a good Halloween? What did you/your kids dress up as?
