Winter Fairy or Ghost of Hannukah Past?
Costume created for Washington D.C.'s "Sanatarchy" in December 2011.
Feel free to do your own variation of this! I included all the items I used in my How-To, so you can see all the different pieces of the costume.

The makeup was the most complicated part of the whole thing. Total, I think the whole makeup process took about an hour and a half. I found blue & silver false eyelashes in a makeup store, and started with those (attached with eyelash glue) and white cream makeup over my whole face as a base.
Then it was time to attach some of the tiny plastic blue & sliver gems I'd bought at an art store. These can be glued anywhere on your face with tiny dabs of eyelash glue. I placed mine over my eyes, along my cheekbones, and one at the corner of my mouth like a beauty mark.
I finished the makeup with blue & silver eyeliner around my eyes, and mascara, and I layered sparkly blue shadow over top of blue eyeliner on my lips.
After all the makeup was done & I was dressed in all my layers, it was time to put on my fabulous afro wig & head wreath. The wreath I'd made a few years ago for another costume. It's made of blue & silver sparkly faux leaves bought at Michael's Arts Store just after Xmas - very cheap. I bought the kind with wire running through them (semi-flexible), so I could twist the stems around each other to form a wreath. Very easy!
