Yes, I am too old to be dressing up for Halloween. But I don't care!
I told my daughter the make up artist that I wanted to do a theatrical version of the corpse bride, so she stopped by to do an experimental make up job on me. Once she was done I realized I needed to upgrade my home made costume to come up to the level of her make up job, but what to do when you are flat broke? So I scrambled through my fabric stash and found some spandex scraps and wide elastic, which I sewed into a tight fitting cap. Then I pulled some blue yarn out of the yarn stash. Then I just improvised and hoped for the best.
It took 3 days but I came up with this. I am pretty proud of it and I think it will look great with my final Halloween makeup job.

NO ONE IS TOO OLD FOR HALLOWEEN!!!!!!
You might be too old to go trick or treating but it's only because you're an adult and can buy your own candy now!!!
but your wig and makeup look incredible!! your "improvised" wig looks professional and I totally want one now!

that is an awesome wig! i am going as Sally this year and went the cheater route with a store bought costume, the wig that came with it is quite lacking in the yarn department, i am trying to figure out a way to add more to it at the moment.

p.s no one will ever be too old to dress up for halloween. the makeup looks amazing as well!  Grin
