Day 318: Dark Shadows

Day 318: Dark Shadows

Last year on May 11, Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows was released. Today am I taking on this film as a theme, dressing as the lead character, Barnabas Collins, played by Johnny Depp. It actually creeps me out how much I look like Johnny Depp in this outfit. So much so, that if I was a man, I’d be raking them in.

Day 250: Catherine O’Hara

Day 250: Catherine O'Hara

March 4 is Catherine O’Hara’s birthday. Catherine would be best known for her role as the mother in Home Alone, but I thought it would be funnier/more dramatic to dress as Sally, which she voiced, from A Nightmare Before Christmas.

Day 24: Batman

With the release of The Dark Knight Rises this week, it is all but appropriate to have a Batman theme. So I’ve chosen to dress up as my favourite Batman character – Catwoman. Furthermore, I’ve chosen to dress as the best Catwoman of all – Tim Burton’s (ain’t nobody got nothing on Michelle Pfeiffer yo!)

The Catsuit that you see me in is a handmade Catwoman suit that took me a couple of weeks to make with help from my best friend, and was originally worn at my work Christmas party.
