Halloween look: I will be a pop-art comic character.
Key pieces to the look: Blonde wig, face paint in red and black, and white clown foundation

Halloween look: I think I will dress up as a brain!
Key pieces to the look: I bought a few yards of mesh tubes recently and I plan to make a more “glamorous” version of the human brain.
The plan is to twist the tubes like sausages and sew them together to make a headpiece. I want it to look anti-gory.
Wicked Halloween finds: Black lipstick from SM Department store, bone erasers from Fully Booked (these can be turned into accessories!), mesh tube from Carolina’s, black bodycon dress and bruha (witch) wig!
Where will you be for Halloween? I will be at “Día de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead) at Orale! Taqueria Mexicana (The Fort Strip, Bonifacio Global City). There will be an exhibit of skulls painted and designed by a couple of artists in Manila, and I’m honored to designing one for the event!

Halloween look: I’ve decided to make use of whatever I can find at home. I’ve always liked the role of the White Witch from the “Chronicles of Narnia” or Hans Christian Anderson’s Ice Queen. Fortunately, clothing pieces for these characters are staple in almost anyone’s wardrobe, just add a couple of items and you’re good to go!
Key pieces to the look: All you need are a long white dress, a pale blonde wig, silver and blue shimmer eyeshadow, a tiara and a wand. The fur scarf is optional. Tilda Swinton’s makeup as the White Witch of Narnia is very simple. You might want to accentuate your eyes with shimmering blue and silver eyeshadow. Lighten your eyebrows with a concealer to match the wig’s color. Tiaras and wands are available at your nearest department store. You can find ways to make these props or even your dress look more frosted.
Wicked Halloween finds: My “wickedest” finds are an ash blonde wig and a large tiara I got from Catwalk Cosmetics (http://catwalkcosmetics.vze.com), an old staff prop I found in the stockroom, my mother’s fur scarf, and gray Freshlook contact lenses.
Where will you be for Halloween? I’ll most likely join our village’s trick-or-treat activity; this time I’ll be giving out candy instead of asking them from neighbors.
Halloween look: I’m on the hunt for the perfect costume, but I’m leaning towards Effy Stonem (of television series “Skins”), a London guard, or Kate Middleton with a twist.
Key pieces to the look: If I go for the Effy Stonem look, I will need to look like some punk kid. If I choose the London guard look, a hat and a blazer/top will have to put my look together. If I go for the Kate Middleton with a twist, maybe a hat would have to be worn in order for people to understand who I’ll be.
