Photo-a-Day - October 2012 - Day 30: Costume

Photo-a-Day - October 2012 - Day 30:  Costume
Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of me in this, but it's the last Halloween costume I wore. 

One company in which I worked, took Halloween very seriously.  I dressed as a white witch and a seer.  I wore an black ankle-length dress under a purple-blue asymmetrical jacket on the back of which I had used glitter and a gold pen to paint a pentacle encircled with astrological signs.  At my waist, I wore a black scarf with the symbol of the goddess in gold in silver.  Around my neck, I wore multiple necklaces, including a pentacle.  I also wore this fabulously sparkly midnight-colored scarf.  It's about 12' long so I wrapped it once and then just let it flow when I walked. 

I had straight, hip-length hair, which I wore loose but held somewhat in place with a moon-face pendant necklace around my head.  And rings, I wore lots of rings, including two that were moonstone.

The staff, or walking stick, is clear lucite with a ball on the top, looking like a crystal ball.  At the time, I had affixed numerous charms which dangled from just under the ball. 

I had taken a large, bright-colored shawl in to cover a small table just outside my cube.  On it, I placed my real crystal ball, my i-ching coins and a tarot deck.  I even did a few readings that day. 

It was fun and I've held onto the outfit hoping, one day, I'll be small enough to wear it again.
