Information

This one might take a little explaining... xD A Tumblr user organised a 'Fandom Halloween Party' on November 3rd, at *an actual pirate castle* in London and it was basically the best time of my life.
The idea behind this costume was: 'What's the geekiest, most fandomy of fandom costume I can come up with, that only Tumblrites would get?' ...And this was the result. I think it worked out a treat! The accessories definitely made it, especially the skull. His name is Skulduggery.
Sadly, despite not actually being staff for the event, I accidentally helped with so much of the organisation that I was no longer eligible for the costume competition D: So many people complimented me on my quirky outfit, though! :D

COSTUME BREAKDOWN:

* Hair - Crazy curls, pulled back slightly and fastened with large, black bow.
* Make-up - Silver or gold? With lots of eyeliner, because everything's better with eyeliner. Nothing too elaborate?
* Tops - Navy blue dress (front door) with white and brown scroll fabric cuffs (wallpaper), hemmed and wrapped in yellow 'Crime Scene - Do Not Enter' tape. Belt around waist with '221B' in gold (house numbers), with 'Crime in progress - Please disturb' note, fastened with a large bow in 'wallpaper' fabric.
* Bottoms - Skirt features a large circle of 'wallpaper' fabric, onto which s sponged a bright yellow smiley face, ripped into by bullet holes (BORED!). Gold, glittery tights, to match the house numbers.
* Footwear - Black heeled brogues. They'll kill after a few hours, but they're bloody gorgeous.
* Accessories - Deerstalker? 'I <3 Sherlock badge (journalist Kitty Riley's); Baker Street, Union Jack, 'Keep Calm and Carry On' and yellow smiley face badges; violin necklace on bronze chain; black and white 'I believe in Sherlock Holmes' wristband (fan response to 'The Reichenbach Fall'), white/cream human skull ring; metallic animal skull ring (skull wearing headphones on the wall of the flat); three cirular plasters, for nicotine patches?
