I’ve always been one to get overly excited about anything seasonal and festive. The opportunities for themed outfits, food and nails allow for an amount of freedom that I probably wouldn’t get away with in my average daily life! Having dressed up as a crayon last year, I decided to go for something a little ‘scarier’. Two friends and I decided on the theme of Unhappily Ever After, where we would each be a Halloween style version of a fairy-tale character. Hence: Sinderella, Malice in Wonderland and Little Dead Riding Hood.
I based my outfit around a blue dress that I’ve had for a while now. The clock necklace was from Accessorize, also a while ago, but often seems to come in handy! All I had to buy was a white apron and some socks, to which I added fake blood and stapled some playing cards. For some extra accessories, I replaced Alice’s signature bow headband with a black rose veil and carried an empty red wine bottle labelled ‘Drink Me’.
Any Halloween playlist needs some cheesy themed music. I might have got desperate and added anything with the word ‘ghost’ or ‘monster’ in the title, but here’s a few of the songs that featured on our night: Ghost – Ella Henderson, Monster – The Automatic, Monster – Lady Gaga, Monster – Professor Green (I bet you’d never guessed that so many artists have actually released songs called ‘Monster’?!), Thriller – Michael Jackson, I’m In Love With A Monster – Fifth Harmony, Zombie – Jamie T, The Time Warp – Damian, Highway To Hell – ACDC and Hypsoline – La Femme.
