Halloween has come and gone. I wish that Halloween came more than once a year! So much fun. I always have to have two costumes. One for my kindergarten Halloween party and one for going out. I asked all of my students during the week before the part what they thought I should be. Last year I was Snow White. Almost every student said they wanted to see scary Laura teacher. They had seen pictures of my last year's Spider Queen costume and wanted to see what I looked like scary. So I went towards more of a witch/demon/vampire.
Only two students were too scared. One of my 5 yr old (western age 4) class boys and one 5 yr old class girl, I'm sure only because it was her first day and she had no idea who I was.
For going out this year I was a steam punk vampire. I got the idea from the corset. I saw the corset months ago and just wanted it. So bought it. What can I do with a corset? Halloween costumes are a great idea. :)
A lot of prep went into my costume this year. I hand made my skirt - a three tiered bustle skirt, because I couldn't find one that I liked or that would match. I also hand made or altered some of the accessories.
My friend Vincianne did my make-up, with Blind Mag as inspiration. She also did my make-up last year. What am I going to do without her next year???
