I dressed as a woman from the 1940’s in gray-scale makeup. My goal was to look like someone from a black and white photo. The makeup ended up all over my dress, but mostly stayed put. I went to the WVU Swing Club’s Halloween dance, and won third place in the costume contest. That was pretty cool.
My hair ended up falling pretty fast due to my Lindy Hopping everywhere. I even put a gray old lady rinse in my hair so it wouldn’to be too blonde in the pictures.
This is the only picture I have where it looks like I achieved the goal of my costume. Nice photo bomb from the Pope in the background. The venue turned the lights up, and it messed with how my paint looked. All of the other photos have my costume looking like I am a vintage woman from the dead.
That could be a costume idea for next year though.
