Yes, I'm a girl..

I LOVE Johnny Depp. He is such an amazing actor! It's hard to believe it's the same person in all of his movies. I've seen people trying to recreate his characters from previous movies on Halloween, but haven't seen recreations from his latest one - Dark Shadows yet. So I decided to go for it and make one myself! I figured the fact I am a female will make it even more interesting and fun!
For the costume, I have bought the black coat last minute from a second-hand store (yes, especially for the costume). The clothes I wear underneath (including shirt and pants) are my husband's. I wore a red scarf on my neck to mimic the shirt he has underneath, and I made the collar out of tissue paper. I had big fake nails, but with square tips, so I cropped them and cut the edges to a sharper shape. The makeup is on my face and hands, and the stick I'm holding is from a broom! :)
Also, my hair is long, so I did a ponytail, and pined it on the top of my head. Then took the ends of it to my forehead.
So that is my last-minute-improvised costume.
The only thing I was really sad about is that there was a storm outside so I couldn't take the pictures outside, as I usually do, and so the quality is too bad :( I thought about not uploading these, but it took too much effort to make it, to not being seen by anybody :) So here it is!

Happy Halloween everybody!
