Hi all,

This is my costume from Halloween 2011.

I went as a Pop Art girl from a painting!! And I won 1st prize at the Dublin Rocky Horror Picture Show  Grin

I painted a wig as I could not find a yellow one anywhere!! I bleached a black jacket so I could paint it to look more 'pop art' and then I just wore a 50's style short polka dot dress and pop art print tights. I also made a speech bubble headband!

Hope you like it!!

I haven't hit "This Rocks!" so fast in a long time! I especially like the speech bubble. Without it, one might wonder what the heck you're supposed to be, but it puts the whole look into context and you know exactly what it is.

And your date's undead pirate makeup is good too.

This is amazing.  Your make up looks great!

Thanks guys....it was such a fun night!!

Was such a rush getting ready as I did the makeup for the half torn of face (in the last pic above), a friend as a geisha, another as Hellboy and another as a scary clown!!

Yeah I was so happy with my speech-bubble hairband....it was my favourite bit!!
