Pumpkins scream in the dead of night.

It probably isn't surprising that I'm a total child about Halloween. Given my affinity for fancy dress (I JUST LOVE IT) any annual event that celebrates the activity is fine with me.

With all that said, I'm not actually dressing up this year due to a woeful lack of invites. It's fine, I'm going out dancing instead (sans devil horns). However, if you're struggling to find costume inspiration this year, I thought I'd share my favourite recent costume (so good I wore it twice!).


It's the easiest - and most effective - fancy dress I've ever done. It's pretty much all about the lipstick, to be honest, but adding tight pin-curled ringlets and paaaale, super matte makeup really completes the effect. And if you're anything like me, you'll have an epic collection of cute dresses to choose from.

Also, it's good for freaking out kiddies. WIN.

This costume was thought of before I heard of Jonathan Coulton, but now that I have, this song pretty much says it all.


  1. This is such an awesome costume! Love!

  2. What a brilliant costume idea! Like usual, I waited way too long to decide what to be and was planning on resorting to my usual Hermione since it's easy-peasy. But these is even better! And totally do-able with what's already in my closet. Thanks for the idea. :)

  3. you look super cute! :) what a great costume idea missus. me and the mister aint doing anything for halloween this year but im tempted to improvise from whatever we can find around the house :p xx

  4. Ok you look very scary there - well done! x

  5. What a great idea! Love your dress <3

  6. what a shame :( neither am I, well not a dress up anyway
    i suppose I didn't really have a costume sorted

    love how you have done your lips x

  7. I did this outfit once! Wasn't as cool as this though with the eyelashes and lipstick. I put my hair in pig tails though because I just can't curl my hair at all.

  8. The lipstick makes it terrifying! Aaaah! What a great costume. x

  9. Love this! I'm wearing tights very similar to those as part of my costume on Saturday... zombie nurse!!
