Since I’ve been up since like 6 am and need to get ready for work now, I have been looking for costume inspiration. Not for Halloween but for future conventions and stuff really. As I posted a long time ago, i basically have everything I need for an Artemis outfit. Just need a bow and arrow set. I’ll probably wait until closer to the end of Halloween to just buy one from one of the party stores.
I also bought a black dress with gold straps yesterday ($8 score) and if I add gold ribbon to the waist for a sash type thing it would be a good Egyptian goddess dress (I’m looking for ways to make an Anubis or Bast mask. Which so far looks like a ton of work). I’m trying to see if maybe I can do something with the straps to switch between silver and gold if I can. Maybe find a way to attach ribbon that could be removed. That way I could be Nyx or Selene.
Then I’m also working on a Persephone outfit. I’m trying to figure out if I should dye this bright red dress that I have green or if I should just try to find a green dress (which surprisingly I don’t have because green is my 2nd favorite color and I don’t have alot of it :/). In the process I’m also trying to find pomegranate jewelry and it’s impossible to find anything that’s not like $300 so now I’m looking for ways to sort of make a life size maybe half a pomegranate with clay and beads or crystals. I don’t know, still looking.
I will also be looking for ways to drape fabric for the Greek stuff so that maybe I won’t have to buy dresses but could just buy the fabric and drape and pin that way.
This also means I can get a bit creative with makeup.
