... I was a showgirl, with yellow feathers in my hair and a dress cut down to there...
Hello! This year’s Halloween party had a K or L theme, so I went as Lola from Copacabana!
I made pretty much everything, dress, headdress and even embellished the shoes. Only thing I bought was earrings.
I have never made an outfit before, the dress was adapted from a very loose strappy dress-top, completely shapeless and I used an old bra to give it the shape. The whole dress is sewn – no glue at all. The headdress is mainly glued.
Anyway, on to the pictures:
Me with Kylie, Little Red Riding Hood and Kate Middleton...
My favourite picture! (Dress was a bit lower than I thought it would be, I guess showgirls aren't really known for their modesty)
Whole outfit and dress inspiration came from google images searches, although I particularly like this

Make-up inspiration was from this video
