My Halloween Costume #1 - O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu) from Kill Bill

Hi Bellas,

I hope you all had an amazing Halloween.  This year, I actually didn't dress up as any of the tutorials I mentioned (correction I was the mermaid on Monday, post to come!).  My costume was actually very last minute, lol, but I love how it came out and I totally represented for the Asians, lol.

The BF and his friends wanted to dress up as the Crazy 88 from Quentin Tarantino's film Kill Bill.  I absolutely love this movie!  The lead character of the Crazy 88 is played by Lucy Liu and the character is O-Ren Ishii (gotta love the name similiarity too huh?), the Leader of the Mob Crime Family in Japan.  Being the token Asian in the group, lol, I decided to dress up as her character.  It was actually really fun because I got to lead around a bunch a guys all night.

For my makeup, I actually applied a lot of tricks from a no-makeup makeup video I had in the past.  Here's an inspiration picture.  I went for fresh faced (went a little paler with the foundation to match Lucy), with a bit of liner and of course, freckles!  I threw my hair in a bun with a couple of chopsticks from take-out, he he.
Unfortunately, I had no time to prepare and get an actual kimono.  I ended up making mine the day of the party, by using a Nun Costume from Party City as well as a whole bunch of hem tape and safety pins, lol.  The boys had it easy, they just wore black suits, white dress shirt and a black tie and a black mask lol.
The final look!

Here's a picture that they took at the party, didn't it turn out awesome?
I can't wait for Halloween next year, I'm already thinking about what looks I want to do next!  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
