Description
One of my favourite costumes, but I will probably never wear her again, as much as I love her. Why? Because I used my own hair, and to get the crazy 'Amy Winehouse' look to it I had to backcomb it, and spray it with black hairspray and regular hairspray. Brushing it out was one of the single most painful experiences of my life D:

Despite the epic pain and being dubbed Amy Winehouse for most of the day, I really enjoyed being her :) The Sandman series is one of the few western comics that's really captured my attention, and I just love her quirky character and her gothed up design :) Quite a few people recognised who I was for a change, which was nice too! Asides from the hair pain afterwards, she was really comfortable to wear seeing as the outfit is so simple.

Obviously very little was made - the vest top, jeans, and boots I already owned; the necklace was shoddily made by me, and the main effort went into getting the hair and makeup right. The makeup could have been a bit neater, so sue me.
