So this year I went as a Voodoo Priestess....though a little bit more on the creepy/out there side. Besides, what would a voodoo priestess be if half her mouth wasn't stitched up like her voodoo dolls?  I wanted to elaborate on last years costume, which was considerably simple compared to this one. Last years costume didn't even come CLOSE to being as awesome as this year's. Everything was pretty much made on my own, down to the hair. The only things I didn't make were the two necklaces on my neck, and the skulls/shrunken heads on my belt..though I did add the symbols to them. I made the outfit, the dreads, and the voodoo dolls. Smiley If I could have made the shrunken heads - I would have. Smiley Apparently because I'm a new member, I can't post pictures, so unfortunately I had to post links. Sorry guys.

oh wow.

So I clicked on this ready to be vaguely annoyed, as I often am by posts with the word 'voodoo' in them that also mention voodoo dolls, BUUT

your outfit is AMAZING, crazy detailed, super creative. the makeup is fabulous, and all your accessories are awesome--and there's even some veve inspired stuff. also, you are mad hot.

I have absolutely no complaints! Carry on. Continue being absolutely stunning.

The mouth stitching is really great, too--I love that there's actually some red there, so it looks painful.
I love the bones. And I have that exact belt.

OH MY GOD, IS THAT AN ERZULIE VEVE ON THE SKULL'S FOREHEAD? IT IS IT IS IT IS. Okay, I basically love you. My adoration! I beam it at you.

I've been dying to get the erzulie veve tattooed on my skin for yeeears now. ugh. gotta do it!

in conclusion, you are amazing, and i shall vote for you.
