Of all the things to dress up as for the first Halloween following your engagement... I think it's fair to say that any daydreams my fiance had of me sashaying down the aisle in some gorgeous gown looking like a goddess/princess/woodland nymph have well and truly been put to rest. Usually he's quite placid when he takes my outfit photos for me, not so much today!

I had so much fun putting this costume together. There's so much fabric in the Dahlia skirt, so it was the ideal candidate for being bunched, tucked and tied. Underneath I wore a cream satin slip, which became pretty much entirely obscured by a mass of teased hair and fake cobwebs.

The 'veil' is actually a very tactfully positioned dress - I just rolled the top into a sort of sausage that I pinned across the top of my head. I decorated one of my Crown and Glory headbands with extra white flowers, some fabric 'vines', cobbywebs, and a spider. I carefully positioned the headband to hide the 'veil', and began to tease the living daylights out of my hair.
