margaret on the guillotine

November 1, 2010

Even though these were only from last night, it already seems like I'm ages behind for Halloween pictures. I was originally planning to be a zombie bride, but nixed the idea when I couldn't find cool silver contacts. I next toyed with Marie Antoinette but couldn't find time to sift through vintage shops for something decade-appropriate. As far as I was concerned, I just really wanted to cover myself in blood. Even then I had to scramble a last minute outfit AND make my own blood from Hershey's chocolate that ended up... everywhere. So, I was a dead ballerina.

    I'm a huge fan of your style and love your halloween costume.

    However, I'm incredibly offended by the Indian Costume. Please check out this blog which is a good resource to learn more about Native Appropriations:
