Halloween Look: Corpse Bride

So our Halloween party is this coming Thursday. My friend and I went to this second hand costume store last week. I found this off white laced chiffon dress. It's a little bit torn around the lacey part. But overall, it looks very pretty and very appropriate to use as the Corpse Bride's wedding dress. It's funny because I've always wanted to see the movie, but never got a chance until I bought the dress. I should have watched it long time ago though.... just for Johnny Depp!!!!!!

So this was my desperate attempt at imitating the Corpse Bride from Tim Burton's movie. Here's the dilemma: if I don't make myself look scary, my whole outfit would just look too bridal-ish (let's be honest, I'll just scare away all the boys); but if I look too scary, I might win the scarest costume, but I don't know if I'll have friends afterwards.

LOL.... that was a little extreme. But I've tried to whiten my face by putting on really light foundation and contour my face with dark blue eyeshadows many many times. Honestly, I thought I looked way more like a real ghost than the animated version of Corpse Bride. Until today, I'm somewhat satisfied with the result. Of course, I'll be wearing my false lashes and spraying on my white hair dye for the actual party. I've never really dressed up as anything, so this is kinda exciting.

Dress $6.50
Fake Flowers $2
Veil (my mom bought it for me at Joanne's, so I don't know the exact price) maybe $5 at most?
Long laced gloves - given to me by my aunt....
Temporary hair dye $2

So I'm going to say this entire outfit costs less than $20!!! Perfect for my tight student budget!

Here are some scary photos.... so beware....

Yay..... they probably heard me. LOL So as it turned out, the warm bronzer is out of stock, which is fine with me since golden bronzer is the one that I really wanted to try out. But seems like it's going to take about 10 days to arrive here..... More waiting....

So I placed an order on ELF three days ago..... and the order is still being processed!!! I get very inpatient when it comes to getting my package asap.... And guess what, I think two of the items that I ordered are not available..... BOOOOO!!!!!! I have a feeling they are the golden and warm bronzers that I've been craving..... Who doesn't want the nice glow even in the fall and winter?

Oh well..... I shall wait patiently for them to process my order and wait even longer for the slooooow standard shipping. Then I'll find out what exactly is missing from my order. I'm never happy w/ ELF's shipping..... Is it because I used a coupon code, huh? So you are mad at me for not paying the full price, and process my order in the sloooooowest way possible???? You better ship it out to me tomorrow!!!!! Please~~~~???? *insert a cat in the boots face here*
