|My friend Ste was turning 30 and decided that he wanted a wrestling-themed party to celebrate. The idea was that we all come dressed up as our favourite pro wrestlers, which left me a bit stuck since I didn't know much about pro wrestling at the time! Better-informed friends suggested various different wrestlers to me (not all of them serious suggestions!) and the one that really grabbed me was Katie Lea Burchill. She's just awesome.|
The finished costume really was more of an "inspired by" affair than an accurate recreation of any of Katie Lea's costumes, but it worked well in the end. I loved the makeup so much - most of it was done by me, but the swirls over my right eye were done by my friend Luke - and I thought the extensions looked great. I just wish I weren't so flabby! Oh well, extra motivation for me to lose the extra pounds and tone up, isn't it? ^_^
