Go to that page and leave a comment telling the site how much you dig it!
The prize is selected by judges and not by popularity, however the judges do take into consideration how the viewers of the site like the costume when they make their decision. So the more you show them you love it the better my chances are of winning. And it’s a cash prize which I would love to throw down on my medical bills!!
SHARE this post! PLEASE!
Well alot of you always wonder what I am going to be for Halloween. I usually don’t announce on my website what it is I have up my sleeve until after I do it and have the photos to share. Well I have some! That’s right I dressed up last night for the Halloween Costume Party and Rock Show that Axe Man’s Bridge (my husband’s band) was performing at. I got quite the compliments on my makeup job and let’s just say I had to drink out of a straw all night and try my hardest not to laugh or talk too much ha ha.
I present to you.. Living Dead Girl Nicole as.. AKA Black Dahlia AKA Elizabeth Short….
Some of you probably are not surprised by my costume choice as I have always been quite intrigued by the case of the Black Dahlia. I even finished one of the many books I have read on the case while recovering in the hospital doped up on morphine ha ha. I have always sympathized with Elizabeth and all that she went through but I must say using her corpse photos and trying to replicate her wounds on my face made me feel for her even more. The more gorier you have to make the makeup the more you realize what caused the wounds you are replicating. How hardcore and painful they must have been. I must say this is by far my favorite makeup job I have done on myself. I have decided to enter my costume in the official Alice Cooper Halloween Costume Contest. Fingers crossed! If I win I can finally get a chance to meet Alice and if I did would be incredibly honored to give him a piece of my artwork as a thank you for the opportunity.

This is a barrette I made for my Dead Girl Massacre Decay line. It features a skull complete with a bloody chelsea grin amongst a large black bloody dahlia flower. Inspired by Elizabeth Short aka the Black Dahlia and her unsolved murder.
