Luke Danes from Gilmore Girls Costume

I, like many others this year, were over the moon when Netflix released a new Gilmore Girls series. Thinking of who I could create a costume of, I figured that Luke would be the most obvious. While his look is very standard, it’s almost a uniform and quite recognisable.   Photo credit: Frosted Tips  …

Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth Costume

A while ago a friend suggested I do the Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth costume. It took me a while to take it on because I wasn’t sure I would do it justice…and I’m still not sure. I think people will get it enough, but it’s not my greatest work. The eye-hands and long nails…

“Ex Wife” Mean Girls Costume

If you’re a fan of Mean Girls then you know that one of the truest to life scenes in the film is when Cady shows up to a Halloween party filled with sexy versions of costumes. In an ode to the fact that not all female costumes must be sexy and revealing *cough* Golem *cough*,…

Avril Lavigne Costume

Today I had a Naughties (2000’s) themed party that I was invited to, which was changed last minute 😦 Regardless, I had created this Avril Lavigne costume for it.

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…

Kip from Napoleon Dynamite Costume

This is the third time I have taken on a Napoleon Dynamite character costume, but this time, it’s my favourite of all – Kip. I mean how can he not be your favourite when he’s dropping lines like: “Don’t be jealous that I’ve been chatting online with babes all day. ” “Things are getting pretty…

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 349: Napoleon Dynamite

On June 11, 2004, Napoleon Dynamite was released. The film soon became a cult hit with it’s offbeat humour and awkward characters and moments. With this as my theme, I have decided to dress as the main character, Napoleon Dynamite. (Previously I have dressed up as Rex for the blog) Before I leave you, here are…

Day 347: Natalie Portman

June 9 is Natalie Portman’s birthday. I was spoilt for choice with characters I could dress up as today, but none more dramatic than Nina as the black swan from Black Swan. The intense make-up took about 40 minutes, but looked amazing and pretty spot on if I do say so myself. Photo credit: Holmes…

Day 324: Daft Punk

Today Daft Punk are having an album launch party in Wee Waa, Australia for their new album Random Access Memories. Unfortunately the French DJ duo will not ACTUALLY be in Wee Waa, but that won’t stop thousands of people descending to the town to hear the album. With this, I have taken on Daft Punk as a theme,…
