Wake the Dead!

Happy Belated Halloween!

This year I wanted to be something traditional, and mummys are a traditional halloween costume right? The dress is actually not a dress but two pieces, a top and pencil skirt made out of white stretch cotton. My strands I made out of strips of cheesecloth, then I dipped everything in a bucket of tea to give it an aged feel and then hand sewed for days! Finished the look with some deadish makeup and my bangs in a happy pompadour thanks to Lauren of the bobby pin blog and her wonderful tutorial.

The bf was a very vicious vampire, somehow we managed to not get one picture together all of Halloween. Boo for me.

If you can tell me what movie the title of this post is from, you will forever be the coolest person in my book.


  1. wow, you two looked really scary! you did a great job with the make- up!

  2. This mummy costume is too pretty to be scary! I love the fit. You look great girl! Have a great Tuesday..Kori xoxo

  3. Thank you Corinna, with those contacts my bf was quite scary in the dark he made quite a few people jump at the party we attended.

    Blondie you are two sweet. Thanks for the kind words.

  4. I love how you both look! His contacts are cool as hell!

    I will have to try the happy pomp - i love Lauren's book and I like how the happy pomp is bigger and poofier than the Fleur Faux Bang - but boy howdie I love having bangs again without commitment ;)

  5. You look lovely, and the costume is so well made!

  6. Wow! I really like the look!

    "Wake the Dead!" would be from The Addams Family, right? Love that movie! It's one of my favourites. ;)

  8. Great costume! It must have taken hours. Your hair looks beautiful like that! :) x

  9. Thanks a million Inky, and my bf was also excited about your comment. Yea I love the happy pomp its so easy and perfect if your growing out your bangs because you can take the hair from further back.
