For now, my favorite holiday of the year has passed and I hope you've all had as great a Halloween as I have! Lucky me, I had the opportunity for not just one, but three different costumes this year! Lots of parties to attend.
First was a Pride & Prejudice Zombie
I've been wanting to do this forever and I'm glad I did, but most people didn't know what was going on. They'd never heard of the book, horrors of horrors! They were still quite freaked out by it though! :)

For our own party we had an Alice in Wonderland theme and since I recently dyed my hair red I was the Queen of Hearts (rather than Alice which would have been my original choice). Not my favorite costume of all time, but the party was really fun! I found a red prom or bridesmaid dress at a thrift store and altered it, and I made a little crown that's attached to a headband.
And then Monday night I wore my Steampunk costume to another party just for fun! Didn't get a picture of that though, but you can see it under my "for fun" costumes. Everyone loved that one as well, though most people don't know what Steampunk is... I was duly impressed by those who did.
As I was getting ready for the P&P Zombie look, I realized that a hairpiece I bought last year that didn't match my hair before (but that I couldn't send back) was now a perfect match! So I used that with all three costumes and it actually worked so great! People thought it was my real hair, plus it only took like 5 minutes to do each night. My hair has been fading though, so who knows how long it will continue to match... I might have to re-dye it again soon. It really made a great Regency hair-do, lots and lots of curls.
Anyway, I hope you all had a Happy Halloween too! More costume updates to come soon!
