As Halloween draws closer, I am embracing some spooky pursuits. I’ve been busy making decorations for an upcoming Halloween party, creating pinata’s for my guests to take a bash at and watching piles of Tim Burton movies. Another thing that I like to do in October (more so then in any other month) is create outfits and costumes. On Saturday, Ross and I went shopping for Halloween supplies, and I thought that it would be a good idea to dress for the occasion.
I am a huge Boosh fan, and for a while now, I have been hankering to do a Naboo-inspired outfit. Well, Saturday just seemed like the right day to give it a whirl.
– Black turban (thrifted)
– Quartz crystal earrings
– Bindi from Rainbow to Camelot
– Purple Peace Angel velvet jacket
– Purple floral gypsy skirt from Glassons
– Grey Tony Bianco ankle boots
– Copper swirl bracelet
– Copper snake bracelet from Tilka
– Jade ring
I had such fun wearing this outfit. Naboo’s clothes are all so rich, with deep jewel colours, fabulous jewellery and luscious fabrics. The turban was a very important touch, after all, a Shaman is just a man until he (or she) pops his (or her) turban on. I got a few odd looks at the shopping centre, but that’s pretty much par for the course for me most days, so I just let it go.
On Sunday, Ross and I headed to the city to pick up some comics and drink bubble tea. I wore this ensemble, which I like to call “Vince Noir Meets Tank Girl”.
I am wearing
– Hot pink Tank Girl hat
– Alice in Zombieland tee from Threadless
– Purple and black striped top from Cotton On
– Green and white beaded necklace from Chapel Street Bazaar
– ZAP necklace from Diva
– Donald Duck ring
– Blinky earring
– Dice earring
– Flower bubble ring
– Leopard print ring
– Pink leopard belt from Excentrix
– Hot pink jeans from Jay Jays
– Black Dr Martens boots.
This outfit is mostly Tank Girl, but I can see Vince Noir in these jeans. I absolutely adore these jeans. I bought them about two weeks ago. I’m not normally a fan of skinny jeans, but these are a perfect fit and I love the colour. They are actually really comfy and only set me back $20.
I hope you had a great weekend. What are you up to in the lead up to Halloween?
