Today’s Bewitching Look!

weirdos

I am very inspired by the 90s and it’s fashion. One of my favorite films from the 90s is The Craft. I have been really interested in the occult and the history of witchcraft from a young age, I have loads of books about the history and practices of witches through out the centuries and it has influenced my style greatly. I love Nancy Down’s gothic/grungey style in the film The Craft and this outfit today was inspired by her look but of course I added my own twist to it!

My stripey top is from H&M and my glasses are actually from a Halloween costume shop! My necklace was a gift from a friend on my birthday and my lipstick is by Miss Sporty, they do a really affordable black lipstick,which recommend if you ever want to try out wearing black lipstick without breaking the bank.

Queens Of Halloween #1 Elvira Mistress Of The Dark

“It’s OK. My appearance is kind of a shock to everybody.”

What would my Queens Of Halloween post’s be without mentioning Elvira?! HORRIBLY WRONG, THAT’S WHAT! She is one of the coolest goth chicks to ever grace the silver screen. Horror’s number one hostess, with killer legs, boobs, figure, you get the picture! She is a sizzling hot eternal beauty with an amazing sense of humor. The film Elvira Mistress Of The Dark is a brilliant mix of slapstick humor, horror and light comedy, if you haven’t seen it already I suggest you do.  The movie starts off with Elvira finding out her great-aunt Morgana has left her a mansion and a mysterious book in her will. The Gothic Queen packs her bags and moves to Fallwell Massachusetts where she sticks out like a sore thumb!

Elvira’s style is a mixture of 80s fashion & gothic glamour. Her signature long black hair is full of height and is styled in a gothic version of the mullet! Her nails where always long, sleek and covered in black nail polish. She wore a long black wrap style dress and accessorized her outfit by placing a gold dagger on the front.

Oh and let’s not forget her greatest accessory of all, her trusty punk rock pet poodle, Gonk!

Elvira’s make up look is also very 80’s inspired, her eye make up is very dramatic and makes her stand out (even more!) from the crowd. She uses a mixture of pink and purple eye shadow, as well as very goth girl’s best friend, black eyeliner to create her vampy make up look. She also uses false lashes to make her eye’s really pop and adds her signature beauty spot below her right eye. Elvira creates a dramatic effect on her pale skin by contouring her cheek bones with a very bold maroon shade. She completes her look using a bright blood red lipstick.

It is hard to believe that the film Elvira Mistress Of The Dark came out a year before I was born in 1988, as Elvira’s style and wit is still as fresh as it was back then. Her twitter account is filled with amazing one liners and ghoulish pictures. I love it! Elvira continues to be one of the most popular icons in horror to date and she still looks as fresh as a new grave!

“And if they ever ask about me, tell them I was more than just a great set of boobs. 

I was also an incredible pair of legs!” – Elvira
