Halloween Costume Final Results

I'm finally getting around to posting the results of my massive Halloween crafting surge - my costume turned out so well it's scary... no pun intended. I spent about 2.5-3 hours on my hair and makeup, which really paid off. Unfortunately I don't have a better photo of my garment, but it looked really nice. Let me just say - three cheers for eyelash glue - it was practically holding my face together.

I've decided to save this costume for next year, as I didn't get much of an outing with it this year. Husband was out of town, and many of my friends weren't participating in festivities. I did look good sitting on the couch though!

Harvest Muertos!

Please see this previous post for more info about my costume inspiration. I had a lot of fun with this project, and I hope to use this costume for various activities in the coming year. Why don't people have masquerade balls/dances anymore? It's not an activity that's confined strictly to the Halloween season, and I suppose I could be the one to host a masquerade event... but that probably won't be happening anytime soon.
