The final costume:
|Cthulhu is my homeboy!|
|Not a whole lot to choose from.|
|In the process, most of the tentacles already sewn together and filled with foam|
|Mirror selfie of the outfit - can you tell who I'm supposed to be?|
|The only closeups I had of the makeup were taken with my phone, so really crappy quality! |
Bummed that I ran out of time and forgot to take a purple eyeshadow to do some contouring. :(
|Poor unfortunately soul!|
|Gothic Ursula! ^_^ I've always loved the Little Mermaid (the original story more than the Disney version) and these days my black heart beats for the bad guys & gals ♥|
If I'd had more time, I would've added suction cups to the tentacles - if I could figure out a way to do it that wouldn't drive me up the wall, that is. I would've also done the shell necklace and earrings and would've gotten my hair a more suitable colour. I didn't want to get a wig for this, even though trying to get my hair back to normal was absolutely horrible! I also took the easy way out and just bought a lace blouse with a suitable sweetheart neckline, even though it's not fully visible here. I wore a second-hand fishtail skirt under the tentacles, which I sewed as a belt.
|Tiina's new pal Bob tried to get a little frisky with yours truly. ;P|
The party was nice, lots of people had dressed up and really put a lot of effort in their costumes! I didn't actually take any pictures at the party, but you can find some here (only for FB-users, sorry!).
Now I need to go get some rest, so I can try to be productive at work tomorrow. Only 363 more days till Halloween! o/
