My Halloween Outfit: Creepy Doll!

I took the creepy doll route for Halloween. I love doing face paint and bizarre make-up so this was great fun. I kept my body simple and not too white to make the face the full focus of the outfit. I wore two pairs of lashes - top ones in the upper eye crease are eylure double lashes from the Katy Perry range and the bottom ones are a few centimeters below the bottom lash line are from Mac cosmetics in Brown Thomas. My black contact lenses are from Fresh Temple Bar I got my little dolly dress in the infamous vintage quirky style haven Lucy's Lounge! A serious haunt of mine. I love that place - they  are approaching 25 years in business next month which says a lot about what a pearl that store is in Temple Bar. There are so many Halloween bargains to be found in-store. And what I like is that even if someone is dressed up as something similar you can still put your own spin on a worn idea if you take the vintage or handmade route. My dress was only €10. Bargain. In contrast to my dark outfit I had really glam nails in pastel colors. I got them done by the lovely Grace Flood for an upcoming magazine feature. 

My unique nail art with diamond's, bows, skulls and pearls.

I dragged lotso-huggin bear around for doll-like effect! God I love that bear. I had to get him dry cleaned though so to my dismay he no longer smells like strawberries. I got fake blood in the pound shop for €1, my white face paint came in a sachet which I purchased in Georges Street Arcade for €6. I drew stitches on with liquid eyeliner. And used the same to draw on a pair of surprised-looking eyebrows. My socks with ribbons I picked up ages ago and I teamed them with my platform Jeffrey Campbells. I am getting serious mileage out of those shoes! I bought them for a Stellar Magazine shoot last month and we have been irrevocably and passionately in lust ever since. I wear them with skinny jeans to meetings and work functions or when I am interviewing someone. With high quality shoes like that, even with height you have great comfort and they still make a statement.
