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