Happy Halloweenie! Each year I browse my closet, find a favorite dress, and work towards a costume from there. In the past, this has served me pretty well as Cleopatra and Breakfast at Tiffany’s Audrey Hepburn. Last year it sparked the idea of a porcelain doll and to add a little creep factor, I went as a broken one. You could go a few different ways with this costume, cute, sexy, or creepy. I choose creepy 🙂 Forgive the photos,
I never have my sh!t together I’m usually too drunk to take high-quality ones on Halloween night.
Porcelain Doll Essentials :
- Porcelain doll inspired dress – look here for inspiration and then search your (or your sister’s and friend’s) closet or go thrifting.
- Stockings or thigh highs
- Mary Jane heels or really any shoes of your choosing
- Long locks or a wig & wig cap – I highly recommend going to a beauty supply store and trying on wigs instead of buying one online. I spent about $25 on mine, take care to store it, and plan on using it again in the future.
- Thin satin hair ribbons and matching choker – I simply tied a length of ribbon around my neck and it stayed put all night
- Makeup – admittedly the hardest part for me! I enlisted the help of my makeup savvy girlfriend shown below.
That’s that! Super simple with the potential to be incredibly creepy. A major bonus for this costume was not having to talk too much. I like to slip into my costume’s character, which usually means putting on some type of accent or alternate personality, but with the broken doll, I could just stare and blink at people without saying anything at all. Perfect!
