Whether I am making costumes or buying them and playing dress up, I love all opportunities to wear a costume and do my makeup accordingly. So far, my top 3 costumes over the past 3 years are: The Black Swan (a costume I bought), Poison Ivy (self made), and Princess Leia (half made). Enjoy!
I bought this costume from Fredericks of Hollywood in 2011! The costume was perfect for the Black Swan. This was taken on Halloween day.
For New York Comic Con 2012 and 2013 I dressed up as Poison Ivy. I made the costume (I bought a plain corset and spent a many days hot-gluing fake Ivy leaves from Michael’s Arts & Crafts store and painted a few and put glitter at the top) and did my makeup as well! For this look I used green gemstones from Makeup Forever under my eyes, and used different shades of greens and yellows from my Sephora Collection Color Daze Blockbuster Palette! The green on my lips was a gloss from the Sephora palette as well.
This is my Slave Leia costume from NY Comic Con 2013. I made the bra by painting it with several different metallic colors, and attached the plastic to it.
