I know, I know. Tumbleweeds on the blog, long time no see, blah blah blah. Who gives a pumpkin about why I have not updated this blog for so long. I don't think for one minute that your life has stopped running its course because my blog hasn't been updated so let's cut to the chase and let me share with you what I wore on Halloween, which in case you didn't know, is my favourite day of the year.
I've got a list long as my arm of looks I would like to create and characters I would like to impersonate for Halloween until Halloween 2057. I can't tell for how long I have been longing to have some tribal style paintings on my face so this year I finally turned myself into a Tribal Warrior, inspired by "Alive" by Empire of the Sun and some tribal makeup looks from Instagram.
After the trauma of finding a wig that fitted the bill last year for incarnating Cleopatra and the costs involved, I really wanted to do a budget look this year and wanted to recycle what I had in my wardrobe and makeup collection. Minus my contact lenses (more on that later) everything I wore, from the makeup, the outfit, the jewellery was recycled from the past. With putting on weight over the years, and even after losing 8 pounds for the occasion there no chance I could have worn my brown avatar skirt so my ordinary multi purpose black skirt had to do.
Now for the piece de resistance: the most inexpensive, comfortable, easy to wear and striking even on dark eyes lenses on the planet. Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce to the Mesmereyez Xtreme LOUIS One Day Halloween Contact Lenses at £6.99 a pair from Hunt or Dye.
Of course I am never going to be as good as the boyfriend who pops in his lenses in a micro second flat, because he wears lenses every day but I don't recall managing putting lenses in my lenses so fast. I am not sure if it's because they are designed to last just one day and that the material is super thin but I found them very easy to insert in my eyes. Another big help was the colour. There is no way you can put the lenses inside out. The outside is very obvious from the inside and it felt so reassuring to be 500% sure they were inserted the right way.
