#LookScary - It's nearly Halloween

I've never been a massive fan of Halloween, usually spending the scariest time of the year at home watching scary films, instead of actually dressing up and partying. But last week I was invited to an early Halloween party, which I just couldn't say No to.

Lily and Zoe organised a fun bash at The London Dungeons (such a fun place), and it was an amazing night filled with costumes, scares, fake blood, drinks and lots of laughs.


Dress - Rare via Clothing at Tesco
Shoes - Clarks
Necklaces - Dorothy Perkins
Headband - Not sure :(
Feather Boa - Portobello Road Market


The party was so well organised and we were taken on tour of the Dungeons, which was a dark tour of 19th Century London, filled with cobbles and stories about Jack The Ripper and Sweeny Todd. I've only been to the Dungeons once previously but if you love a good scare, like me, it's definitely worth going. It has a really good feel of dingy London from the 19th Century as well as a few rides - high drop - to keep us even more entertained. 


It was nice to see that so many other blogger had put efforts into their costumes - there was fake blood everywhere - and everyone also looked far scarier than I did - which isn't hard.
I quite like how my costume came out. I was inspired by Boardwalk Empire (in love with that show) so I settled on a flapper-esque dress which I got a while ago, and then focused more effort on the accessories to give it a more authentic feel. And of course, a lot of heavy and dark make up - well heavier than usual.


There was also a mind reader on hand to entertain up and we had so much fun with him. I'm such a sceptic about these types of things and he had a right old time trying to convince me otherwise.


And of course, some fun times with Kristabel, Lucy, Kate and Alex.


All this was in honour of the new Blackberry Curve, exclusively available at o2. To coincide with this, there are a few videos online to help you get the perfect scary Halloween look. Check them out here. There are some great tips, so I recommend watching a few of them if you haven't got your Halloween look sorted yet.

Are you prepared for Halloween yet?

I have always wanted to try the flapper look, but lack the courage to go through with it. When I saw your costume, (which btw, doesn't look like a costume --you could be the real deal!!) I just about swooned from the gorgeousness... and envy! ;) Love the feather boa touch! That soft periwinkle? colour is quite pretty.
