So who here is doing something for Halloween? I'm a big fan of dressing up, whether it's in frilly dresses or silly costumes so I definitely plan on partying.
My favorite thing is to take ANY costume idea, literally anything that you can find, and then make it dead
Seriously, it makes it so much better! Think, instead of the oh so common skimpy playboy bunny, be a roadkill bunny, haha. Or instead of a pirate, be a zombie pirate. The options are limitless and you have SO much less of a chance that someone will have the same costume as you :)
Last year I was Little Red Riding Hood... Except I splattered blood all over my dress, ripped it up a bit, and used some prosthetic wounds to make it look like I was slashed by some giant wolf claws, one on my face and two on my chest. Then, I took a basket and a fake wolf head wearing granny's hat, and I put blood all over the head and stuck it in my basket which I carried around all night
It was so great!! And I won $200 in the costume contest.
This year I'm thinking of doing a whole demented Alice in Wonderland idea. Not sure of the specifics yet but I'm starting to brainstorm now.
So, what about you?? I'd love to hear what other people have done!
