Deadly Eyes

 Before you can continue on, press play on this song to set the mood. Also, brace yourself for an excessive amount of photos...these turned out too spectacularly terrifying for me to hold back!

Dress: Sugarlips   Necklace: DIY   Contacts: c/o Spooky Eyes
"I don't feel like I'm talking to Linda though," Kirsten grimaced at me. "It's like it's not even you."
I peered up at the camera lens, and tilted my head grotesquely.
"Ewwww!"

My poor photographer managed fairly well despite being creeped out by me. Eventually, she adjusted to my dead eyes and half skull face, and we romped through the woods, snapping photos along the way. It felt only fitting to kick off my shoes and press my feet into the cold and dying earth. The crisp air cooled as the hours passed, making me shiver beneath the thin, silky layers of this dress. Eventually, after sprawling about in the leaf covered forest floor, we decided to call it a night and head back. I may or may not have stared intensely at cars we passed, hoping someone would look over.

It is the end of October, and you know what that means. The Halloween season is in full swing, just as it's about to end. Personally, I've never made a big fuss about Halloween. Perhaps it's the way I was raised. My parents never went overboard with decorations or parties. I would always be excited about dressing up though, and the free candy was party enough for me. However, in my teens, I stopped dressing up and settled on buying post-Halloween candy as my treat.

This year, Spooky Eyes have sent me several colored contacts that have inspired me to dress up. In fact, I attempted my first ever Halloween-themed makeup look! Going off of this photo, I applied layers of foundation, white eyeshadow, smears of black eyeliner, and much much more to achieve the desired look. I'm quite proud of how it turned out too, not gonna lie. 

What completed this look though, were the Manson Contacts from Spooky Eyes. They completely transform me into a creature of ethereal darkness and terror. 

I think I like how Corina described it best:
"You know how some huskies have the one eye that's really light blue and the other is brown? Sometimes I can't tell if they want to kill me or play with me based on that light eye."

You never know ;)
Hope everyone has a fun (but safe!) Halloween! What are your plans for the evening?

(Sorry for my lack of comments btw--dying currently, but I LOVE YOU AND I HOPE YOU KNOW THAT <3). So yeah. These pics are sweet. AND SO SO SPOOKY. I love that you purposely went all out for Halloween costuming and took thesee rad pics and took the time to garnish yourself with creepy makeup and contacts and these twisted, weird poses.
