Three years ago I dressed up as a mime for a friends party and it was the best costume ever - minimum effort, maximum impact:
Just a simple H&M top, Toppers waistcoat and and my black school skirt dug out from the bottom drawer. The face paint really made it though, totally loved this look!
I haven't really been able to match up to it since, not in my Charlie Chaplin attempt or my vampire effort - photos of which will remain buried for all time on the long-redundant bebo...
HOWEVER recently I've been really inspired by skulls, bones and skeletons, be in it jewellery, accessories or clothes, and I think I've decided on a style-savvy costume this year:
Body and leggings @ Black Milk.
Over sized skeleton jumper @ Wildfox.
As for face paint, I'm going to try my best to copy this EXACTLY, or as exactly as my shite artistic skills will allow. Almost as crap with a paintbrush as with a camera. Almost.
As hot as I imagine this outfit to be in my head, the thought of actually wearing skin-tight leggings under a skin-tight body has me panicking about my wobbly bits already.
In reality, THIS outfit would be much more comfortable, but alas it is nowhere to be found online - I believe it was briefly available to buy from Topshop online, but is now more covetable than an Alexa.

So, a skeleton it is. Maybe. Probably. What will you be dressing up as? (Or is it ridiculously early to even be thinking about Halloween?)
