Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter Costume

I am not a huge fan of my natural curls, but when it comes to creating costumes like this, they do come in handy. Today I have created a Bellatrix Lestrange costume, one of the world villains from the Harry Potter series. To achieve this look, you need a long black dress, crazy curls and…

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 220: Mafia

Day 128: Black & White

Tonight I have been invited to two parties, one being Black theme, the other being White theme. They are both at the same house. The concept is that you choose which to dress as, but I say, why choose when you can be both? and who is both Black and White? Michael Jackson of course….

Day 28: Devo Chic

As suggested by Isabel, today I’ve gone the theme “devo chic”. I’m not sure exactly what that entails, but for me, it’s basically an emo. So I present to you, Emo Mary…who looks about 17.   Photo Credit: Ziggy   Black Beanie: Sportsgirl Black Cardigan: Cotton On Black T-shirt with Indian Man print: Arcade Screen Printing Black…
