I’ve always been a big fan of Halloween. There’s nothing more I love to do than dress up and showcase my creativity. Year after year I’ve done many photoshoots with my siblings dressing them up in various costumes and taking them to various locations. But the last 2 years running I’ve to showcase my creativity by combining my love of Halloween and my love of fashion to create a fashion forward Halloween costumes. Last year I took it upon myself to make a Maleficent costume and do my own little photo shoot and video for my YouTube. It was the hardest photoshoot I’ve ever done as I was on my own. Trying to set the camera up for self-timer and not having a remote to set my camera off was so hard. I have many shots of me running away from the camera looking back with a weird look on my face. But after many attempts, I finally got the photograph which made my Maleficent shoot. To the left is my Maleficent favourite photograph and here is the link to my YouTube video featuring this look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCkXY27dwbA
This year I decided to go a little more subtle with the photography and just do something along the lines of Gothic Chic. The Wide Brim Fedora is a staple piece in my wardrobe. I always with every outfit check to see if it goes. 9 times out of 10 it does but I always feel I’d over do an outfit if I wear it. I purchased Superdrug’s Spray Hair Chalk in the colour of silver for my hair. It didn’t work the best and it flakes a lot so that didn’t work too well. My bat bow tie was purchased from ASOS and I added the two bits of ribbon coming from it. My blazer is thrifted from a charity shop, which you’ve most likely seen in my other outfit showcases and the shirt was also from ASOS. See, I can’t even put a Halloween look together without using ASOS. This look also features a carved pumpkin by my fabulous mother. Here is the photograph of my Gothic Chic look….
