Lady Hawke to the rescue!

Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story.
 - Mason Cooley


Although Halloween was a week ago because of exams, 
my friends and I had a delayed halloween/guy fawkes party recently. 

I orginally had ideas of a zombie or vampire, 
but when I got to the store that I was creating my costume from 
I decided to go in a different direction.

So I went home and got sewing and ended up with a ridiculously shiny but fun outfit to wear...



I sort of made a Kick Ass/Hit Girl inspired super hero of my own
 with holsters, impractical high heels, capes and all.

The name Lady Hawke came out of a joke:
 - my old hair cut made people call me 
the brunette lady hawke (NZ musician)
- there's already a hawk girl
- my sister wanted me to have an L on my costume 




And of course a wig and mask to hide my secret identity, shhh...


And I've gotta say though, I really loved the pink hair,


For makeup I layered a metallic shadow over strategically place white eyeliner,
and then an extreme liquid liner cat eye for some added drama



The night was a lot of fun, 
And with a great view across the city we managed to see 
a whole lot of fireworks for ideal student price (free ;P)


Did you do anything fun for Guy Fawkes or Halloween?
