Hi everyone! For Halloween this year I decided to be a yakuza assassin. Originally I wasn’t really going to dress up for Halloween, I was just going to do witch-y or Bird of Paradise eye makeup… but I recently got this lovely vintage silk kimono and it seemed like the perfect occasion to break it out! I went for a tough but feminine vibe and accessorized with a fan and my Desert Eagle airsoft gun (it shoots plastic bbs which I no longer own).
For the makeup I wanted to keep in line with the tough but feminine idea. I did an asymmetrical, fire-y gold and red smokey eye complete with false lashes, but balanced with strong black brows and bright red lips. I wanted to keep the look pretty, but at the same time I wanted it to make a slightly cartoonish statement and come across obviously as costume makeup.
I had a lot of fun with this look! It was pretty simple to put together, and not too hard to wear. :) I also had a pretty good photoshoot, I think, considering it was perhaps my 4th or 5th time using self-timer to shoot an outfit. Here are a lot more pictures, including better ones of the makeup (in sunlight and in shade), and a cool pic I got when the self-timer went off while I was still trying to balance my camera on the planter edge.
Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween! :D
