ScaryTarts: Halloween Outfit

Happy Halloween Lovelies!

Well I know it's not quite Halloween yet but I already celebrated it at the weekend when I went on a night out to the Halloween version of Pop Tarts (aptly named Scary Tarts) and wanted to show you my costume today to give any of you with parties on Wednesday a few ideas...



Nighty- Primark
Socks- Primark
Teddy- Wilkinsons 
White Foundation and Fake Blood- Blue Banana
Eyes- MUA Glamour Days Palette and Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette 


I've spent the majority of Halloween parties dressed as an incredibly not frightening cat or devil (see last year's post) so this year I really wanted to look scary and thought a dead Victorian Woman in Black ghost child sort of thing would be easy to create but really creepy at the same time. For the 'nighty' I bought a size 18 sheer white shirt from good old Primarni and wore a black dress underneath so I didn't look naked (always good), then added some long grey socks to make it look more child like and also to keep my legs warm as I walked to the union. I know, thinking practically about my outfits for once! I also had great fun wearing my hair in bunchies with ribbons and dancing along to the random dj set by Simon, Lee and Duncan from Blue with a teddy bear now named Brendan in tow. Another fun thing about Halloween is the make up and I found a brilliant white foundation from the brand Star Gazer which gave me and everyone else (our pre drinks turned into a big face painting session) a rather realistic ghostly glow and then used dark black and purple eyeshadow to create sunken eyes, gaunt cheek bones and bruises, finished off with lots of fake blood of course. My lovely housemates Rosie and Nick went as a rag doll and zombie pumpkin and you can see what a few of my other friends looked like in this photo of our night out...


I've had such a manic weekend with Halloween stuff all day Saturday and Performing Arts things and a yummy meal out at Las Iguanas yesterday and now I've also got a really busy week coming up starting with an Autumnal Warmer social tonight which I'm really looking forward to because I get to wear a cosy jumper, eat stodgy comfort food and play with sparklers, loving Autumnal life so much right now!

I hope you've all had a good weekend and have a great Halloween!
Love Meg
