Today I have another Halloween tutorial to share with you. I'm probably the most excited about this one because it's so over-the-top and probably what I'm going to wear for Halloween this year. (I love that lion costume so much but it's too close to Puss in Boots that I wore last year and I have to switch things up!) I hope the intensity of this tutorial comes across in the video because in person it is really over-the-top for me, especially since I wear pretty low-key makeup most days. ^_^

I bought the legwarmers separately from http://www.sockdreams.com
I was actually inspired to do this look after seeing the ridiculously adorable costume from dwdshoes.com which, I want to say for the record that they offered to send me a few things and although they had shoes and clothes I basically made a beeline to the costumes to do tutorials for you all. What's the point of doing a review on shoes when I could get something that would give a bit of fun back to the beauty community that has been so supportive of me?
So no, I'm not crazy enough to buy a million costumes to tramp around to several posh parties on Halloween this year, but I have been blessed an incredible amount of love and support to be able to make my silly little videos which I would not have been able to do without you. Sometimes even little opportunities give big rewards. :)
So here are the pics to my Toy Soldier/Doll/Mannequin look:
Does my jaw look like it's going to come unhinged here?
This was slightly fail because I was trying to show the eyeshadow. At least the hair looks good!
I salute you!
The costume designers did such a great job with the hat! It really makes the outfit. :)
Here are some pics of the full costume. I'm so impressed with how this wig lays! The layers fall in really pretty curls. I'm also obsessed with these legwarmers which happen to fit TINY which is great for me and my "chopstick" legs (that nickname is credit to my mom). These are size S/M so definitely size up if you are looking into buying them.
A shot from the behind. How adorable is the back of this dress! ^_^
And just in case this post wasn't creepy enough, here is a photo that really shows the plasticy doll-face look that I was going for.
I did notice in the close-up photos that light was reflecting right into my cheeks so the red circles don't look round but you can tell in the full-length photos that they are. It was just the Lioele Blooming Shimmer Pearl Base that I used to make my face shiny and more doll-like that gave it that extra bounce of light. ;D
I also noticed that the blonde wig makes me look fairer. Totally weird! I hadn't even worn a wig before this one so I was impressed at how nice this looked. I'm going to have to find excuses to wear it again. (ooh, blonde Disney girls! ^o^) Hope you don't get sick of me as a blonde. I've never had anything lighter than dark brown highlights before. Haha!
Okay, for SERIOUS I am going to bed early tonight for some well-deserved rest. Thank you so much for reading/watching and let me know how you liked it in the comments. ^_^
