Dress (with attached belt) - Primark
Shoes - Boohoo
I know Halloween isn't for another week, but I couldn't resist having a little game of dress-up today while everyone was at work, and it's always a good idea to try everything on and check it all looks okay before the big night.
I love Halloween, after Christmas and my birthday, it's my favourite day of the year, and it hurts me so much that in this country we don't feel obliged to celebrate it! Thankfully this year is the return of the sixth form Halloween party, and I am going as a sheet ghost.
The idea came to me when me and my friends were discussing costume ideas, and we had the idea of going like a set of proper trick-or-treaters, like the ones you see on American cartoons, and what band of trick-or-treaters is complete without a sheet ghost? Although the idea is something of a "classic" Halloween costume, I am yet to see anyone over the age of ten show up at a party with a sheet over their head, so I'm pretty happy that no one will show up in the same costume as me.
I'm pretty sure that the sheet will only last about 30 seconds when I get into the party (how am I supposed to have a drink with a load of fabric over my head?) so I wanted to still look sort of Halloween-y underneath. I found this lace dress at work which had a sort of "dead-doll" look to it, and worn with my silly Boohoo heels (which I regret to say made my feet ache in the time it took me to take those photos, so I dread to think what state my feet will be in after the party!) and a bit of white face powder and red lipstick, I hope I'll look the part.
This is also my entry for the annual Spookbook competition on Lookbook - so if anyone who has an account could log on and hype me (I won't win, but it's nice to join in) it would be very much appreciated!
