Last night we went out to celebrate Halloween. There was a Halloween themed burlesque party at a club with several great performances. I didn't bring my camera to the club as it's a very dim place so I knew I wasn't going to get good photos of the show.
I dressed up as a dead flapper girl. I didn't have much time to prepare a costume so I just wore what I already had. I bought the fringe dress a few years back, the necklaces, gloves and purse I already had. I just bought a bit of sequin band to make a head band.
I made up a bleeding wound on my throat with scar wax and water colors. I mostly used plain ordinary make up for the dead look. I had bought this blackberry colored eye shadow from Madison Street Beauty on Etsy a while back (they are having a 60% off sale btw!) and it turned out to be the perfect shade for those ghoulish sunken eyes. I just applied it under my eyes accentuating the natural "eye bags", on my temples and under the cheek bones. I had some white powder from Grimas left over from previous years that I used to high light the forehead, cheek bones and nose. Then I just made up a dark 20's inspired eye make up with kajal and black eye shadow.
I made a fake bob and finger waves to complete the look. I'm starting to get better at setting waves, but it's still a challenge. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out anyway.
