My Halloween looks 2011: Tiger & Pilot!

I bought lenses in Stephens green shopping centre on the third floor. I loved them. I was fascinated by the contrast between the yellow, black and whites of my eyes. I blended orange, brown and gold shadows on my forehead, cheeks and forearms. I wore my hair wild, tousled and crimped with a pair of cat ears from the old reliable Claires Accessories and teamed them with a dress from my wardrobe two years ago, from River Island that fitted the bill. I wore high silvery platform heels and neon orange fishnet tights that glowed in the dark. The look was fun and took under 30 minutes to throw together! I wore this look to 'Benedicts' - my local nightclub. 

I wouldn't usually dress provocatively on a night out but halloween (according to Mean Girls) is the one night you can get away with being a little 'out there'. I am seriously paraphrasing there! I bought a Top Gun pilot costume in Catch boutique in Dublin. I loved wearing the costume it was sexy but had a great sense of occasion. Catch Boutique are based very central in Dublin City centre - just a stones throw from the Spire. 

I gave the outfit a vintage twist with 1940's inspired make up and hair (AMEN lady Danger by mac lipstick). I donned white 'feline eye' shaped sun-glasses. I love the 'cat eye' look with sunnies. I wore white lace hold ups and white gloves. The picture below was taken by a photographer! He said that he really liked the look. But then again we are all very complementary on Halloween! :)

What to wear this year.... I do not have a clue what I am wearing or even doing this halloween! I would like to dress gory or scary as a zombie or something and go all out for the occasion. I love Halloween.

What about you? What are you guys wearing for Halloween?
