Purring Leopardess


Perhaps you wouldn’t want too much black on your face. You can go minimal with this feline-inspired look.

Weeping Wonde


This white-and-black costume will surely freak onlookers out. Setting your face with a pore-less, white look, play up with your mascara by making it appear to stream down from your eyes. Of course, it’ll work best if you can borrow a realistic nun’s habit! Visit  for more info.





Red Lolita


Go red with this Gothic-inspired makeup look. Use an extra bit of your deep-cherry lipstick and black liner and recreate a bloody belle’s gaze.

Top it off with a messed-up hairdo and make sure you include an all-black ensemble in your packing cubes for a spooky fashion. Visit pinterest for more info.
