Hallowe'en || Twenty Fourteen

Friday, 31 October 2014



For work, we were allowed to dress up for Hallowe'en. This was the first Hallowe'en where I have dressed up. I have never dressed up for Hallowe'en before and I was really excited about it. Unfortunately, I was the only one that really dressed up at work. A handful of my colleagues added little statement pieces to their uniforms to add a little bit of colour for the day but none dressed up to the extent that I did. I went as Wednesday Addams. 








It actually looks awesome with messy blonde hair too, even with the dark eyebrows.

For Wednesday's make up, I used this tutorial from MadeYewLookByLex. The moment that I watched this tutorial, I knew that I wanted to be Wednesday Addams for Hallowe'en. Lex is amazing!

I had a great time scaring managers and colleagues because they didn't recognise me at all. My colleagues could hardly recognise me when I had my contact lenses in, so you can imagine how startled they were when you throw in dark make-up and a black wig. Managers would have a fit wondering who the new girl was and why she was at the shelves. Then once the penny dropped, their jaw's subsequently dropped. Their faces were priceless. 

I had the most fun sneaking up on colleagues. One thought that I was a ghost out of the peripheral of his vision and then I scared him when I walked up to him when he was distracted. He looked around and there I was, just standing there with that sinister stare that Wednesday uses. Scared the life out of him. Hahaha.
