For an unusual modern Gothic inspired costume, go as the macabre and maniacal Bette Davis in Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?
What you will need:
- A blonde curly wig
- White face paint
- Red lipstick
- Thick black eyeliner
- Thick black lashes
- Heavily rouged cheeks
- A heart beauty spot
- An old fashioned white dress with a pink ribbon around the waist.
- A creepy life-size doll with matching hair and dress
- Drink, lots and lots of drink
Here's a really good video tutorial on how to achieve the Baby Jane look, although I think the foundation should be a lot paler, almost like clown makeup.
This is what you are aiming for.
