I have a 'strictly fancy dress' Halloween party to go to and I have absolutely no inspiration for an outfit. Please help!!!!!!!!

I really really don't want to go as a witchgrin

I need it to be easy to make as I don't fancy buying something. I can sew a bit.

The other alternative is to not gogrin but i've never really been to a fancy dress party before sad so would rather go

Long black wig, long black dress - good makeup, red lipstick = Morticia Adams.

ADragonIs4LifeNotJustHalloween Tue 14-Oct-08 16:09:30

Yes, Morticia. Definitely.

Or, if you can pull it off, a black cat in a tight fitting black outfit plus eats and tail. I DD had some fab sequinned black cat ears form Monsoon last year!)

Eddas Tue 14-Oct-08 16:15:55

ah yes meant to add tight fitting not a good look for mewinkgrin

Morticia would be easy actually as my hair is long and brown. Could maybe dye it blackhmm or maybe just buy a wig as it could go disasterously wrong if i dye my hairgrin

thanks puppymonkey and adragon

anymore ideas anyone??????

morticia is just a witch called another name
go as something non witchy. or if you must do witchy, go dressed as sarah palin

go in v slinky red dress with horns - you little devil. Cheating slightly but you'll look fab

Eddas Tue 14-Oct-08 16:47:07

thanks for that link nailpolish, not sure it has anything for me really

stitch not a fan of SP thenwink

toobusy, believe me the red devil look would not work on a pearshaped slightly overweight me but I guess I would scare everyonegrin

Myabe i'll go as a pumpkingrin it'd suit my big arse figure more grin

lol at sarah palin. that's genius. a business suit, beehive and horns.

I bought a knife through the head hairband and some fake blood and went as a zombie.

I backcombed my hair, wore the hair band, dripped the blood all over a white top and smudged mascara under my eyes. Just wore jeans.

I LOATHE fancy dress parties. LOTHE them.

Wear a black dress and take a broom and if hosts complain shove it up their jacksies!

Thomcat Tue 14-Oct-08 23:32:16

Guess this would be impractical

solidgoldskullonastick Tue 14-Oct-08 23:35:41

Undead is easy: just wear some old clothes you have muddied up and frayed a bit(or buy something from a charity shop and trash it), black blusher, green/mauve/grey eyeshadow all over your face and hands, and do the Zombie Walk.

dd is going to a party as Amy Winehouse,but calling herself Amy Housewine lol

She's basically doing the hair and makeup like her and wearing slightly tarty clothes and ridiculously high shoes.

I really feel you should lay off him dear, if he really doesn't want to go down the poop shoot you really can't force him

EstherGreenwood Tue 14-Oct-08 23:56:17

I think I may have posted on the wrong thread
My apologies

Wear an evening dress & a moose mask and say you've come as Camilla.

Eddas Wed 15-Oct-08 08:03:09

lol adragon, bit too subtle for my friends. I'd be explaining myself all night. Although apparently someone is wearing a christmas tree outfit he made for a christmas do and is gonna say it's a haunted christmas treehmmgrin

i'm loving that outfit thomcat. not sure i'm up to making that sort of costume!

ADragonIs4LifeNotJustHalloween Wed 15-Oct-08 08:03:51

But at least you'd look glamorous! which is my main criteria for fancy dress...

Eddas Wed 15-Oct-08 08:34:42

trobule is I don't have evening dresses, i have no ocassion to need any! so i'd even struggle with that bitgrin

charity shop wedding dress rather shredded with fake cobwebs and crazy hair - Bride of Frankenstein/Miss Havisham?

Eddas Wed 15-Oct-08 08:41:20
