I finished (and wore) my costume and I was so pleased, I had to share.  I didn't make a lot of the costume (I bought the dress - I knew I wouldn't have the time to do it properly), but I was fairly chuffed with the end result.  I was a plague victim from the Empty Child in Doctor Who.  I showed the mask earlier and some people requested to finished costume.  I didn't have any full body shots because I've lost a rather important bit of my tripod, but there's really nothing of interest going on below the waist anyway.  I wanted a nerdy costume that could be scary but could also be cute and would stand on it's own (40's lady!) to people who don't watch Doctor Who.  I think it worked, though my Starbuck costume last year was much easier to wear. 

I was particularly proud of my hair since my actual hair is way past my shoulders and is so straight and slippery that it generally refuses to hold curl or style.  I set it with hot sticks and rolled the victory rolls around rats, pinned the back under, then shellacked everything with a coat of hairspray.  It held really well, especially considering all the on and off of the mask.

And of course, the whole plague starts with a scar on the back of your hand - latex appliance, foundation, and lipstick blended.

And who might that handsome gentleman be in my locket?  Why, it's an attractive American soldier I've been shagging!  He's very open minded when it comes to, er, dancing.  The locket is from a local vintage shop.

The only disappointment was that I never found my toy sonic screwdriver.  I think it's lost in the abyss that is my office.

It turned out so well, I especially love the little Captain Jack locket.
