It's almost time for Halloween and I've been so excited to plan my costume for this year. Last year I happened to be in San Francisco for Halloween with a big group of friends and we decided to be different characters from Alice in Wonderland. We had Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts (that was me by the way) and Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dee. It was the most incredible experience being out in such a beautiful city on such a fun occasion where everyone takes their costumes very seriously. There were absolutely no party-poopers who hadn't taken their costumes seriously which I thought was fantastic.
This year I have decided to be an Ancient Roman Empress. I found the most beautiful accessories at Zuri to create my Halloween costume. For my theme I looked for gold accessories preferably with coins or medals on them. When I found this head piece and necklace which actually had Roman Emperors on them I knew it was meant t be. I also picked up another gold necklace with a large medal on it and I decided to wrap this one up to make the perfect wrist piece for my costume. Lastly I found gold rings all in different sizes, some being normal sized rings while others are midi rings. Some are thick and others are thin which I thought created a lot of variation. I used a blush maxi dress with gold braiding on it for my Roman toga and added flat sandals which also have gold in them. I amped up the drama with bold make up with lots of gold, dramatic winged eyeliner and gold dust lips that you can only get away with on Halloween. If you want a full tutorial on this make up look, let me know and I'll organise one. So that is what I have planned for my Halloween look. Now I just need to find something fun to do on the night!
