Boom even brighter than the moon.


Camisole - Gap
Skirt - H&M
Tights - Topshop
Shoes - Hush Puppies
Tiara - HK
Nail varnish - Rimmel
Facepaints and fake blood - Wilkinsons

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.

Great costume!!! I agree with you, I always try to look for usual and scary characters, it's too boring to dress like a vampire every year! you look great!

brilliant costume! and you used to take up in ballet?? your poses seem so flawless. i'd look so awkward in those haha

thanks for the video comment :3 you're so sweet. how much did you end up paying for the wig? my long wigs tend to get tangled too :( I try to comb it before and after i use them. but they're starting to look crimped and dry. but still do-able seeing that i've had them for almost a year.
