Which means it’s time for curling up on the sofa in the dark evenings, watching horror films from behind a cushion, and planning what to wear for our Halloween party. I’ve definitely decided to go as Balinese Girl by Tretchikoff now. Yesterday, we went to Blackpool and I bought some green fabric from ‘June’s Fabrics’ to make the headdress/turban. Now I need to find a suitable dress, jewellery and an appropriate method to turn my skin green.
I did have some other ideas for costumes:
Oddly enough, they’re all far more creepy and Halloween-appropriate than what I’ve decided on! I just couldn’t resist the chance to be a living Tretchikoff print…
Having literally just bought some green stage makeup off Ebay, I now need to find a yellow dress and jewellery. I think I’ll probably try and make the necklace from cardboard: then I can paint it so it matches properly. The earrings can be imaginary! Not sure how I would get anything like those beasts through my ears.
