Happy Halloween! (And 2 Costume Ideas..)

By Makeupandartfreak @MakeUp_ArtFreak
Happy Halloween everyone!
Usually I don't dress up for Halloween.. And I should. 'Couse it's fun....
But this year LookBook got me dreesed up because they have this costume contest, and I had 2 great ideas that I always wanted to try, ever since I've seen them! One is Barnabas Collins, Johnny Depp's character from "Dark Shadows". And the other one is a Comic girl! :)
I am glad I did this, because it was very fun!
Here are the two costumes and the description of the idea, the inspiration, and the way I've put the costume together, under each photo.
Which one do YOU like better? :) Click on the "HYPE" button under your favorite picture, and I will really appreciate it! ^_^
I LOVE Johnny Depp. He is such an amazing actor! It's hard to believe it's the same person in all of his movies. I've seen people trying to recreate his characters from previous movies on Halloween, but haven't seen recreations from his latest one - Dark Shadows yet. So I decided to go for it and make one myself! I figured the fact I am a female will make it even more interesting and fun! For the costume, I have bought the black coat last minute from a second-hand store (yes, especially for the costume). The clothes I wear underneath (including shirt and pants) are my husband's. I wore a red scarf on my neck to mimic the shirt he has underneath, and I made the collar out of tissue paper. I had big fake nails, but with square tips, so I cropped them and cut the edges to a sharper shape. The makeup is on my face and hands, and the stick I'm holding is from a broom! :) Also, my hair is long, so I did a ponytail, and pined it on the top of my head. Then took the ends of it to my forehead. So that is my last-minute-improvised costume. The only thing I was really sad about is that there was a storm outside so I couldn't take the pictures outside, as I usually do, and so the quality is too bad :( I thought about not uploading these, but it took too much effort to make it, to not being seen by anybody :) So here it is!
A good friend of mine was calling me "Comic girl" throughout the whole high-school years. He said I look like a girl that got out of a cartoon, or a comic book. Well, I have no idea why he thought I look like that, but Halloween was a perfect occasion to try and do it for real! See for myself how I think he sees me! So that's me, in he's eyes... Pretty cool, ha? :) The whole idea of the makeup is the red dots all over, and the fine lines that border the face and facial features. Everything is big, bold and clear. I went for the more of a "Vintage" comic girl. For some reason they always cry in the comic books.. So I had to add some tears! I thought my polka-dot sweater will suit this well, as well as my Keds Mary-Jane wedges. I collected my hair into a low ponytail, and pined it up, to make my hair look more round and short. Red nail polish, white headband and pearl earrings seemed like the perfect accessories for the final touch! :))
