I didn’t have a clue what to wear until I realized that my photographer friend Rachel’s Gatsby photoshoot was this weekend and that I could use Halloween to test out hair, makeup, and outfits. Also, we found out that 2 of our models couldn’t make it, so I have to fill in as a model, which will be fun but scary!

So, here I am, all dressed up as a flapper, fancy 1920s lady for my work Halloween contest. I didn’t win like last year (our group costume won 2nd place) but that’s ok because I had a great time. By the way, styling long hair like this (finger waves) is a LOT harder than it looks. The make up wasn’t too bad, I even penciled in my eyebrows to make them appear longer and thinner.
