Skeletal

Woman's Skeleton Costume Halloween

It's nearly Halloween and as you can see I'll be dressing up as a skeleton this year! I thought I'd share my costume for you guys and give you a little Halloween inspiration. 

I'm absolutely love this bodysuit which was so affordable although it's annoyingly a little big for me. This wouldn't be a problem if only it wasn't low cut at the back as this means the sleeves tend to slip down a little at the shoulders. I've tried to shrink it slightly by washing it at a higher hear than recommended but to no avail. I am usually a size ten although occasionally a size eight and ordered this bodysuit in S/M which is supposedly UK size 8/10. Therefore I'd definitely advise getting the size down if you're thinking of buying this it too.

For the makeup, I wanted to do something which was not anatomically correct but not a completely cutesy sugar skull either (although I do love those types of makeup looks too). After a lot of pondering, I found this gorgeous photo on Pinterest which inspired my Halloween makeup. Although this photo was clearly photoshopped, it was still very easy to recreate. I'm debating uploading a tutorial for this look if this is something you'd like to see although it's arguably a little late for a Halloween makeup tutorial.
What I'm Wearing

Would you like to see a tutorial for this makeup look? What are you wearing for Halloween?
