Halloween After: the Black Swan

Note: It has come to my attention that some “anonymous” person has decided to share certain costume photos from this blog to a Cosplay page on FB with the intent of deriding the women in the photos. This was done without anyone’s permission and the people doing this are saying “it’s just a joke” as though it excuses them from accountability for actively harassing people and seeking out people to harass. This time I just reported the page. Next time, I’ll hex your ass.

On to today’s post:

The Black Swan costume came as a byproduct of wardrobe gifts earlier in 2013. Somehow, I wound up owning 3 black tutus. Since I got them for a dance performance I had to cancel due to pinched nerve, I decided I had to do something involving them for Halloween. The first satisfying idea that came to me: the Black Swan.

The costume itself was easy enough – leotard and slippers from Amazon, white hose from Just My Size, tiara from Party City. I used standard Halloween grease paint for the makeup. After, I remembered the old goth trick of putting white powder over the grease paint. Since that is not sold at casual costume stores, I didn’t have it – and really, corn starch probably would have done the trick just as well.

The costume went over well – lots of people loved the makeup. It took me about four tries to get it. Tracing the brow and eye line were easy. It was placing the red makeup around it to give myself a slightly bloodshot expression that was hard to do.



Oh – and the purse situation wasn’t ideal, either. If I had to do it over again I would fashion a pouch-style belt/fanny pack that I could tuck beneath the top tutu.

Clothes I like for summer: Trousers

Summer pants present a challenge: short shorts are just not my thing. Neither is melting down, as I nearly did the summer I could only afford the pair of jeans I bought in May. Now, with a bit more flexibility, I am ever on the hunt for something comfortable but elegant – thus my love for the good old trouser. I can tuck a tank top in it and run around with a certain amount of comfort – ideally I can even get in a few stretches, or hope on a Nice Ride bike.

Sending up a flare

Amazingly, more fit and flare dresses have appeared in plus sizes since I last posted about it.  It’s always good to see retailers catch on and give us more of what we want – and fit and flare is definitely on my personal “I want!” list.
