Okay, so basically this year I would love to be little dead riding hood. Which should be enthralling, seeing as how I will simply be going to school dressed up as a nice severed girl.
Don't mess with wolves.
Anyways, I already have a nice gingham skirt and apron with lace that I made a couple years ago during my lolita phase that would be perfect, and a large selection of ripped fishnets to wear (aha! I have a use for them!) and tonight I will be making a lovely velvety looking (its really polyester, $3/m) red cape and lace up vest using an old simplicity costume pattern. Now I already have that part ready, of course.
I want to know what exactly I should do to make myself look deathly.
I was thinking about bringing a basket full of like body parts or something, but that's a little gruesome for school.
I definitely want to use blood this year. Cheesy
Any ideas for the makeup/hair? I already have long black hair and side bangs, if that gives you anything to work with.
Gashes/scratches/bruises perhaps?
The real question is... will I be the victim or the murderous little girl?
THANKS!! Cheesy

Murderous little girl. Maybe murderous little girl back from the dead, but it is ALWAYS more fun (and more messed up) to not simply be the victim. Smiley
awesome idea, though, however you do it.

maybe bite marks, for the victim idea, though?
just general paleness and blood stained hands (with a basket full of something weird, if not actual bloody body parts) would get the murderous idea across.

You know what would be perfect would be a wolf pelt stole or a wolf tail in your basket or something. I've also done this before both as a victim and with my boyfriend dressed as the wolf but wearing a collar.

For your basket, how about food that looks moldy, rotten and poisoned?

Hey awesome I was thinking of doing the exact same thing this year! Excpet I was gunna do "Evil Dead Riding Hood" and be, specifically, a zombie red riding hood! But my ideas were a Big Wolf-claw gash across my neck, lots of blood from it, and in my basket, the head of Senor Wolf (vengeance from the grave, baby!) Also I have this prosthetic thing to glue to my face that makes it look like I have no eyes. Hence the zombie thing! but i still haven't decided if i will do this costume. either way, feel free to use any of these ideas!

I would go for both, but if not possible, definitely gore yourself up. I would say maybe gash up yourface so it looks like maybe you were bit [cheeky little wolf haha]  the more blood the better. . .i don't know how sensitive thepeople you know are, maybe a slit throat?
best of luck! hope to see pictures!!  Cheesy

OOooOoooO i think you should do it like you were the victim but now your back to seek revenge kindof a thing. You should order those crazy bright blue contacts...they are sooooo creepy. hmm as for hair, i think spiral curls would be awesome. and i def think you should have scratch marks and blood coming down from your neck. maybe blood on the apron? hmm im trying to think of what you could do for the basket. i really like the body parts idea.

What I'm trying to do for my own Little Red Riding Hood costume idea is putting a wolf head in the basket.  Its kind of hard because my bf wants a really good one so that we can use it as a decoration next year. 

I was thinking of doing curls myself too but time-wise, I may exit that idea.  Depends on certain things, since I do have a lot going on starting tomorrow until November 1st.  Oh Halloween, how you enslave us.
