Question by redrumredrum: Dead pin up girl costume for halloween?
this halloween, i was considering being something dead.
after debating, ive decided on being a pin up girl with her throat slashed.
i want the entire costume to be more gruesome, or creepy in a sense.
so could anybody help me find a darker style to being a pin up girl?
for example, could i pull off a frilly skirt with fishnet stockings?
makeup and hair tips are also needed.
any helps appreciated.
thanks alot.(:

I would say go with a black knee length pencil skirt and corset or halter top. Maybe a white top so you can let the blood run down and stain it. Whatever stockings you pick make sure they have a backseam. Bodypaint yourself with a light grey and accent with a shade darker under eyes, in cheek hollows, around your collar bone. For hair you could always buy a Bettie Page style wig.

  1. If your going to an indoor party, you could go with a bikini, or maybe even lingerie depending on the mix of guests. If neither of those is an option, then you could just rip up your chosen costume a little to make it look like you were murdered, and make sure whatever you have looks vintage! Fishnets are an OK idea, but you may end up looking more like a dead prostitute then a dead pin-up girl. I’d say to make sure you know what decade your from, forties fifties or sixties, then match your hair appropriately. Defiantly go with thigh-highs with a backseam, high heels (one missing?), garter belt if you have one and can make it visible, roughed up period hair, pale sunken makeup and of course lots of fake blood.
