Happy Hallowe'en!

Happy Hallowe'en Everyone!
Hope you all had a fabulously spooky night.
Hallowe'en is one of my favourite times of year. We as fashion enthusiasts have scope to go as crazy as we want and it is perfectly acceptable to walk down the street in whatever crazy concoctions we choose!
This year I didn't do much advance planning I have to say, I had lots of ideas but didn't quite get round to trying them out until the last minute but luckily I was happy with the final product.
I always prefer to be a bit scary for Hallowe'en. I think the girly costumes are very cute but when ninety percent of my wardrobe is already very girly I like to go as far extreme in the opposite direction when I get the chance.
Last night I decided I was going to be a skeleton with a little high fashion edge... If you can call it that, although I had no official title.
I started with the face paint and worked around that. As a lover of art and all things creative, I thrive on having the opportunity to go crazy with makeup and face paint and had so much fun painting these skeleton bones. 
I had picked up a pair of bone leggings from Topshop which tied in with my theme and I added my top hat (which you had seen in THIS POST) but customised it with a veil. To finish the look I chose a baroque tail coat from "Living Dead Souls" and lots of studded and spiked accessories.
My favourite part of Hallowe'en was getting to spend it with some of my best friends, two of which you can see in the pics, Becky aka "Katy Perry" and Stacey aka "Edwina Scissor Hands".
I also wanted to share a picture of my Brothers amazing "Transformer" costume which he made entirely by himself. He won first prize in a fancy dress competition and it really was the most original costume I have ever seen! 
I hope you all had an amazing Hallowe'en like I did and I would love to hear what you decided to dress up as!
Enjoy
