Halloween part 1

So we all decided to go to the student bar down our road yesterday for Halloween. We plan on going somewhere else Friday, hence why this post is called 'Part 1'. I don't want to be the same thing twice for Halloween so yesterday I did a pretty rushed, pretty crappy job of being a cat, mainly because I had a pair of pear cat ears lying around. Friday I plan on being a hopefully better looking Witch. I played around with my make-up a bit, not really sure what I was doing I looked up some Halloween cat make-up on Google for some inspiration. I still don't know if I like how it turned out but hey ho, at least I tried!

I also had my hair done a dark browny-red colour.

Make-up info: 
was Barry M dazzle dust in black over Barry M black pencil liner (helps the dazzle dust to stick to the lid and last longer) I also used the pencil liner for the cat whiskers and nose. the silver in the inner corners of my eyes is colour appeal eyeshadow by Loreal, Lashes were katy Perry in 'Oh my', lipstick is Avon.

Rosa also decided to be a cat but a much more gothic version, great minds think alike.

Julia was a sexy witch, she was a little bummed out that she didn't have a broom so...

She deicded to live out her Witch flying fantasy and pose with our mop, if you squint your eyes it almost looks like a broom!

I don't even know how Ross ended up going along with this, but he's a great sport! Rosa was kind enough to buy some loo roll for his impromptu zombie 'costume'. This came about because we get into the student bar for free if you dress up. To be fair this looked less shoddy in real life, the fake blood kind of brings the whole look together. We went to bar, drank wine, played pool and danced. There was a competition for best costume, but as it was a bar full of students there wasn't much to choose from! I had fun but I'm way more excited for Cargo tomorrow, I'm a Witch every single year but if it ain't broke don't fix it / if you're poor and need a costume just use what you already have to hand.
