Happy Halloween!

Hey guys! Hope you all had a fabby Halloween, what did everyone get up to? We had a party at our house to celebrate, and I think everyone is hungover except me! (must have been the punch.)


I dressed up as Bellatrix Lestrange because I have been wanting to for ages, I absolutely love Helena Bonham Carter, she is definitely my girl crush. Here is my outfit...(it cost four pounds!)






I was so pleased with the end result! I considered buying a dark mark tattoo but in the end I just drew it on with eyeliner and secured it with hairspray, and I think it worked really well! Some people actually thought I had some sort of artistic talent because of it, haha.






Make-up wise, I put a layer of white face paint on to make me look like I've spent fifteen odd years in Azkaban, then went crazy with eyeliner, basically:








What do you think? And what did you all dress up as!

  14. Thanks guys :)

    @Harrie it works really well! I went to bed with it on and woke up at around 4am and it was still completely untouched and then it just came off really easily with an eye make up wipe :)
