Annabelle Doll Costume

Today I’ve chosen to go creepy with my Annabelle Doll costume. You may know the creepy Annabelle doll from either horror films, The Conjuring or Annabelle. She is hella creepy and a great Halloween costume. Photo credit: Nettie Noodles Strawberry blonde wig: Ebay Red ribbon: Hot Dollar White dress: Mink Pink (with red tape and…

Morticia Addams from The Addams Family Costume

Today I have taken on another Addams family member with this costume of Morticia Addams (previously I have done Cousin It and Wednesday Addams). It’s a bit warm in Melbourne today (32 degrees!) so please excuse any unsavoury sweat beads. Photo credit: Frosted Tips Long black wig: Ebay Black top: Glassons (with added black paper…

Jigsaw from Saw Costume

I feel as if I haven’t had enough ‘scary’ costumes for the build up to Halloween, so that’s why today I’ve attempted Jigsaw from Saw. Someone I’ve come off creepy, but quite as real and creepy as Jigsaw, it’s probably because I don’t have eyes as black as death. My bad. Photo credit: Frosted Tips…

Carrie Covered in Blood Costume

A couple of weeks ago for Halloween I created a Carrie mid-pigs-blood-bucket-pour costume. The mid-pour was created by having a metal wire fitted to the tiara and then fitted into the bucket.While it was quite the balancing act to wear it, it was also quite dramatic…too bad not too many people knew of the 70’s…

The Birds Tippi Hedren Costume

Today as we are on Halloween Eve, I thought I’d come back to the classic horror genre for my costume today, dressing as Tippi Hedren from Hitchcock’s The Birds, mid-bird attack.

The Ring Costume

Today I thought I’d create a more conventional-creepy Halloween style costume. So I went the creepiest I could go with the most minimal of elements – the little girl from The Ring. The beauty of this costume is all you need to pull it off is a simple white dress and a REALLy long brown…

Day 256: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

On March 10 1997, Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer debuted on the WB. Ever since I was a young girl, I have loved Buffy. It originally started when I was 7 and my family rented the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie with Kristy Swanson and Luke Perry. That day I watched it 5 times on repeat. Fast forward…
