So this year for Halloween I'm taking an idea from MAC Cosmetics for my costume:



The part I'm having trouble with is the clothing! I'm pretty sure I'm gonna wear a black pencil skirt and I'm going to have my boyfriend paint red dots on a pair of white tights for me. But I don't know what kind of shirt/accessories to wear. I'd prefer something with long sleeves (it'll probably be chilly AND it'll save me the work of painting my arms!) but other than that, I'm at a loss! Anybody have any ideas?

A long sleeved, collared dress shirt that buttons down the front.  You could by a men's dress shirt and take it in so that it is a snug, sexy fit.  You could tuck it in or wear it out with a belt around your waist.  You could wear one or two layers under it for warmth.

Or a turtleneck sweater in a bright, primary color.  A simple, ribbed knit style seems very Pop Art to me.

lichtenstein painted a lot of women in collared white shirts, I'd do that....just keep it simple. Really awesome idea!
