Something Wicked

Dress & Hat: thrifted   Boots: Just Fab
Colored Contacts: c/o Spooky Eyes
*insert evil witch cackle here*
Hello my lovelies, how are you this magical evening? It seems someone cast a spell and reverted me to the young witch I was in a former life. For one night, I roamed about in my footwear of choice - stiletto booties, naturally - crunching through gravel roads and scavenging for ingredients to use in my deadly potions.

Haha, ah man, this was the first time I've attempted getting photos done at night, and I'm stunned by how well they've turned out! We parked out in the middle of nowhere, left the headlights on, and started snapping away. Once we arrived home and I'd edited a few, Kirsten took a peek at one.
" look bad...I don't like it!"

Hehehe, so apparently, sweet little Linda can evoke sinister when provoked. It may unnerve my friends, but I personally kind of like it. 

Spooky Eyes sent me another pair of colored contacts to review, and I couldn't help being inspired to do a Halloween themed post around them. These Hulk Eye Contacts transformed my dirt brown hue into a vivid green, which is pretty magical in my opinion. It's a little difficult to see how impressive these lenses are though, so here's a collage to see their transforming powers up close. The middle selfie was thrown in to remind you how dark my eyes usually are:
  After watching far too much Witches of East End (when will Netflix get season 2!?), I was influenced to don a sexy black dress, my tallest shoes, and top it off with this dramatic hat. 

Truth be told, I haven't dressed up for Halloween in years. In fact, the extent of my "Halloween spirit" is curling up on the couch with some candy and a stack of scary movies. Even then, there's no guarantee I'll stick to the horror genre. After one or two, my hyperactive mind starts racing headlong into paranoid mode, and I know I need to pop in a Disney movie if I'm going to get any sleep that night.

So yeah, that's how my Halloween nights typically go. Unless I can get a group of friends together, I doubt I'll have anything too exciting going on. Haha, what about you? Anyone have a fun tradition that you do every year? 

Do you already have a Halloween costume planned out?
Keep it spooky, my darlings!

I wish we had Halloween in my country as well, it looks so freaking fun to dress up! I'd be a witch as well, since it looks so easy yet very fun for the occasion, you look great as a witch! :))

Oooh, these photos turned out super, I've always wanted to do a night shoot. I was thinking of using city lights and shop windows for a backdrop/light source... but this is a super idea. Hello, head lights. As for my costume? No haven't even thought about it... I just might have to take inspiration from your rad post!! xo

The photos turned out great and I love the dress. Funnily enough we actually celebrate halloween here in Spain and there's usually a party planned somewhere although I don't usually dress up anymore. xoxoxo

I giggled the whole way through your post because of how you kept referencing witches and what not. ;)

Yay for contacts! They really do make your eyes very vivid and compliment the dark feel of your outfit very well.

I enjoy the special effects you added here. :P


Mica said...

Such a fun post! :)

That would make a great Halloween costume :) We don't really celebrate Halloween that much here, but I have been looking at baby Halloween outfit ideas and wondering if I would be really silly to dress baby up. Probably really silly, as we wouldn't be going anywhere, haha! :)
