I was invited to a friend's friend's Hallowe'en party and I didn't want to go as something scary, but the point of wearing a costume for Hallowe'en is to be creepy so I went for something in the middle and went as a zombie ballerina. It's a good balance between spooky and pretty. It was easy enough to do since I could pull the costume together using things I already own and just needed to buy some face paints.
Originally I was going to wear my pink tulle skirt, but I'd had a big meal that day and it didn't fit. Plus the black works better anyway. I had so much fun with the make up though! I gave myself black eyes and lips and drew stitches all over my body. Then I dribbled some fake blood out of my mouth. The only problem was the white face paint wasn't that white. And it was a cold night. Still, I kept warm whilst laughing with a wicked ringmaster, two black cats, a pumpkin swordsman, a paedo tiger, Bill Compton, a double headed vampire and various other ghoulies.
I had too much fun doing these ballerina poses.
