Beyonce Flawless Costume

I did not wake up like this. Only Beyonce wakes up like this. This took a lot of makeup, my boyfriends plaid shirt and a wig. Day two of my Halloween fortnight challenge brings you a Beyonce costume from her film clip Flawless. Photo credit: Shivamello Blonde Wig: Sparty’s Red and Black Plaid Shirt: Uniqlo Jean…

Eleven from Stranger Things Costume

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this year, chances are that you’ve watched, and fallen in-love with Stranger Things. It’s the Netflix TV Show that was a mix of E.T and The Goonies and it was amazing. Plus, that soundtrack ??? With that in mind, I decided to start my two-weeks of daily costumes in…

Prince, Purple Rain, Tribute Costume

A week ago today the great musician and humanitarian Prince passed away. I was lucky enough to grow up being influenced by his music because I had older brothers. For this reason I could not miss the opportunity to pay tribute to him in the best way that I can, costume. I tried to find…

Beauty and the Beast Duet Costume

I hope you all had a MARY Christmas yesterday and I know you thought that you were all done with gifts for the year, but here is one last one – my Beauty and the Beast duel costume! My work Christmas party was themed ‘Duets’ this year, so I decided to create two costumes….sort of….

Furiosa, Mad Max: Fury Road, Costume

One of the best female characters to be seen in film this year would have to be Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road, played by Charlize Theron. Furiosa was tough, Furiosa was skillful, Furiosa KICKED ASS. So how could I not only create a costume to portray such a strong, female character, but also end…

Heath Ledger Joker Nurse Costume

Everybody knows that the creepiest characterisation of Batman’s, The Joker, is Heath Ledger’s portrayal in Batman: Dark Knight. One of his creepier moments was when he showed up at the hospital to mess with Harvey Dent, dressed in a nurse outfit. With my hands on a lab coat that I could turn into a nurse outfit,…

Head On A Plate Costume

Re-using the cardboard head-hole-base that I made for my Zordon Power Rangers costume, I thought it may be creepy to create a head for dinner costume. Once again, it’s dodge, but I’m ok with that.

Hocus Pocus Winifred Sanderson Costume

Amongst my love of all things 90’s is the film Hocus Pocus. I will be projecting three films in my backyard during my Halloween party this Saturday: Nightmare on Elm Street, The Craft and Hocus Pocus. I think that about sums up my love of this film. So with that as my inspiration I have…

Black and Blue or White and Gold Dress Costume

It was the viral phenomena that took the world by storm and turned mother against child, friend against friend, and graphic designer against scientist. ALL THE WAY back in February we looked at our computer screens and asked ourselves the very important question: is this dress black and blue or gold and white? (Clearly it…

Shame Lady from Game of Thrones Costume

If you’re a fan on Game of Thrones then you most definitely remember the moment in the last season where that bitch Cersei Lannister finally got what was coming to her. Of course I’m talking about the scene where she is forced to walk naked through the streets of Kings Landing while the masses shout…
