We don't celebrate Halloween in my country, but because I love the holiday I organized a costume party in my local pub tonight. The perfect opportunity to dress up as one of my favorite characters (and style inspirations!), Lisbeth Salander - and especially the Rooney Mara version!
I loved both the original and the remake movies, and coincidentally Lisbeth wears a lot of items that I would wear too :) I dug a few older items up from the attic, like the Dr. Martens boots that I got when I was about 14 (sadly my feet didn't grow as much as estimated, so they are really big on me! It gives me a bit of a swagger though...)
The piercings are mine, I decided to not go for a fake nose and eyebrow piercing because I don't think the character would approve of that. The hair is fake though! I cut and styled it myself and hopefully I succeeded at that. I also took it a step further and bleach my eyebrows, so now I will have to either dye them again, look like an alien or suffer through zebra brows, but I find the result quite good looking if I may say so myself!
What do you guys think, can I pull off the character? ;)
I'd also like to thank Lookbook and American Apparel for hosting a super fun and inspiring contest!
