Who wants to be a SuperHero!?

Who wants to be a SuperHero!?

The beginning of February saw the night I had been planning forever… My 25th Birthday!

In true Ms Lenith style a strict dress code/theme was put in place – Super Heros Vs Super Villains and everyone was told a few months in advance to give everyone time to get their outfits organised!

I decided to go as Mystique (the very warm option) from Xmen

I started with a Blue body and mini skirt then used this youtube video to do the details on my face/body paint…

The end result was this…

(hairband came from here and was very handy to keep my Bettie Page fringe back – and is also AMAZING!)

Lucky I have very lovely new housemates who didn’t mind me giving things a slightly blue tint!

I was quite nervous that I would be the only one who made any effort, which was a complete underestimate of my amazingly mental friends… despite the snow everyone made the most AMAZING effort!

We had Batgirl and Joker

Batman and Robin

The Black Canary

Wolverine (a fellow mutant)

Hit Girl, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn

It was the BEST night… Camden really didn’t know what had hit it!

My friends ROCK!

14 Days and counting

14 Days and counting

I’m getting SO excited about Halloween now! I’ve pretty much got all my bits and pieces for my outfit now… I bought this FAB corset from Corsets-UK who if you like them on Facebook they keep you updated on their corset of the day sale which is where I found my corset! So with packaging I got this £53 for £30 BARGIN!

I found the lacy mask from accessorise which is really cute but has the masquerade feel I wanted without having to pay LOADS for it (another bargain at £6!!)

I found a silky ruffle skirt lurking in my wardrobe (left over from a vampire look a couple of years ago!) and 2 metres of black and silver organza which I plan on layering and tying round my waist but leaving it over at the front!? I need to work out how to construct that!

And loads of artificial vines and roses that I spray painted black and silver…

The silver isn’t too loud which is good as I want them to look all dead and dark. I think I’m going to work out where all these go once I’ve got the rest of my outfit together!?

Looking at all of this I think I’m going a bit Gothic Poison Ivy atm but it might all change this time next week!

I’ve also got to sort the Boy’s cape out at some point…

So much to do to look fabulous. Hows everyone else’s Halloween costumes going?

The countdown begins… 24 days until The Belle Epoque Party Halloween special

The countdown begins… 24 days until The Belle Epoque Party Halloween special

I love Halloween!

For me there is no better time of the year (xmas comes a close second… maybe if there was more fancy dress…?).

I’m a massive fan of dressing up at all times but Halloween means being covered in fake blood and looking as scary as poss without too many funny looks!? But this year I will be swapping the fake blood for glitter and heading to the Belle Epoque Party! I don’t think I could be more excited!!!

I have been wanting to go ever since I went to one of their sister parties (the Blitz party). It sounds right up my street…

Get ready to be transported to the sin filled alleys of 19th century Paris for La Belle Époque. Celebrate bohemian style and applaud debauched elegance at this unique new event that promises to indulge the artistic side of partying.

La Belle Époque allows you to re-live the absinthe fuelled hedonism of 19th century Paris with the people who brought you Blitz Party and Prohibition.

Lie back in one of many velvet lined alcoves and watch aerial and trapeze artists perform over your head as you sip on La Belle Époque’s Absinthe inspired cocktails. Watch the showgirls perform French dance hall classics and immerse yourself in a sound that could only have emerged from the streets of Paris’ red light district.

With tickets at only £20 I jumped at the chance to do something different for Halloween! Lucky for me Blondie, the Boy and my work girlys are more that happy to come with me!

Only a month to pull together a fabulous costume eeek! The Dress Code:

Ladies drape yourself in feathers & squeeze into a breath-taking corset, Gentlemen embrace your devilish side with dashing masks, coat-tails & top hats!

So as the Boy is over in Germany we spent last weekend sorting out his Halloween costume! We hit Camden HARD. Came away with black highway boots, a white pirate like shirt with billowy sleeved and a lace up front and a black cane! All we need now is this red devil mask to come back in stock and I volunteered myself (I don’t know how) to make a cape (thinking crushed velvet!?) and he will be quite a fetching Devil! I do love that he lets me dress him up!

Now my outfit is a little bit more tricky. I’m thinking burlesque woodland creature!? Lots of emerald greens and reds.  I’m using these images as my inspiration…

My shopping list as it stands is a killer corset and meters and meters of tulle to make a skirt like above! Hopefully not too difficult a task!? I’ll do an update of the final thing when (if) I finish it!

What is everyone else doing for Halloween? Hope your all dressing up and up to no good! Just avoid the Mean Girls slut rule…

“Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”

And remember you can never have too much fake blood!!!
