My Halloween Costume

Last night was the Bella Morte & Underworld Samhain party and it was just great! Things went (mostly) smooth, we had a lot of guests and a great atmospheric. The only downside was long queues to the bar, but there was nothing that could be done, so I just hope people enjoyed the evening anyway. I sure did!

An here's my costume! I wanted something comfy, because I was at the venue for seven hours.

Sorry for the bad light, it was late!
Shirt - H&M
Skirt - Second hand
Tights - Backstreet
Shoes - eBay

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be, but some sort of wood spirit or faun might be close. The horns are vintage deer horns from eBay, ears and tail (it doesn't show, sorry!) are made out of a super old mink fur coat I got from the flea market a few years ago (it's also served well for many cat toys and some photoshoot outfits ;P). My other half did my hair and fixed the horns in, he did a great job! I used regular eyeshadow for my face.



Brown shades and white spots!

The ears were so large I had to lift them to hear well if someone was talking
quietly.

I was planning on wearing brown contacts, but the brown shade made
my eyes look really pale and I liked the look.

I have some close-ups of the makeup, but they are still in the camera, so I'll post them later. I was very happy with the outfit, it looked nice and was comfortable for the whole night. It also helped a lot that I took off my shoes when I was DJ'ing, gave my poor feet some rest! So many people were dancing and I'm so happy everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves :)

    1. Thank you! I'm very pleased with the ears myself, I whipped them up from an old pink bedsheet and the remains of a mink coat with hotglue ;P

  2. Ihanat nuo sarvet! Juuri taannoin surffasin krääsäputiikeissa ja glitteristä löysin korvakorut, jotka oli renkaat, mutta kuitenkin sarvet. Oli pakko napata mukaan. Saispa vastaavia koruja kaikkialta ja kelpaisi tuollaiset aidotkin, että voisi salaa pitää kotona päässänsä. Hienot :)

    1. Sarvet on kyllä siistejä, mä villiinnyin ja ostin noiden kanssa kaksi muutakin paria kun eBaylla sai yhdisteltyä postareita. En vielä tiiä mitä mä niillä teen, mutta menevät seinälle jos ei muuta keksi ;P

  3. The makeup is great - it really does pale your eyes out, in a complimentary way! ^v^

    1. Thanks! I think it's the reddish tone in the brown that creates the effect.

    1. Thank you so much! I was planning on propping the ears up, and ran out of time. In the end they were even better when floppy :)

    1. Thanks! My other half really did a great job with the hair, it actually has a synthetic hair fall hidden inside as well as some purple fabric and a ton of hair pins ;P
