Beautiful Weeping Angel
|Costume type:||Costumes for Girls|
This homemade costume for girls entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Natalie, the 'Beautiful Weeping Angel' costume creator:
Our daughter chose a weeping angel this year as her Halloween costume. She has a tendency to choose costumes that don't exist but secretly I look forward to making hers each year. With a busy year of gymnastics, softball and moms nursing school we didn't have much time. We had to find all gray clothing, preferably a dress and paint whatever wasn't covered.
We started with an adult size grey sweater dress over a backwards gray Henley shirt. The skirt was made with a belt from a sweater and grey Halloween curtains doubled up for a dusted graveyard appearance. Then we lightly smudged black and white face paint mixed to the perfect shade of grey all over the dress and shirt.
The face paint started with a layer of black and gray eyeshadow covering the entire face and ears. Then I went over the top with the blended gray face paint. And painted her neck, back, arms and hands. Then I used silver face paint to highlight certain areas and give it a finishing sheen.
For the finishing touch. I used liquid eyeliner to paint eyes on her eyelids.
The finished product was a perfect stone weeping angel statue for our front yard to scare the neighborhood children.
