I walked into the living room dressed in a very fetching witch’s costume the other day. Let me be clear that this isn’t something I usually do, in fact I’ve never really gone in for fancy dress at all, but I was asked to review a women’s Halloween costume so I was keen to give it a whirl. Anyway, as I was saying, I stood in the living room doorway wearing a long black dress and pointy hat. I gave a little cough to alert my daughters to my presence. M barely looked up from the computer, but eventually mumbled something about me looking ‘weird’. K turned around, laughed and then asked if she could get her own fancy dress things out.
I chose this particular witchy get up as I couldn’t envisage myself sporting one of the more sexy looks. Nothing wrong with them, they’re just not me. They have an amazing range over at Jokers’ Masquerade, there really is something for everyone, including dogs apparently. My outfit is a long stretchy black dress with a big stand up collar and long drapey sleeves. The contrasting purple and black and the silver belt buckle create a nice effect. It’s good quality fabric and well made too. I picked size small which is a 6-8 (even though I’m more of a 10-12 in dresses) but in my limited experience with fancy dress costumes I knew that they tend to be on the big side. This one fits well although I’m sure the next size up would have been fine too. The matching hat really finishes the look off.
Now, I know you’re probably thinking that it’s AGES til Halloween, but in fact it’s only about three month’s away and it’s getting bigger each year in the UK, so it’s definitely a good idea not to leave your costume search til the last minute. Whether you’re after a Halloween witch costume or something a little more alternative, Jokers Masquerade is a great place to start. Mwah ha ha ha ha haaaaaa.
