12 Day Blogger Challenge | Day2

Tuesday, 28 October 2014


Welcome back to the 12 day blogger challenge beautiful honeybee's, I hope you're having a great day, night or whatever it may be!


Today's part of the challenge is something I do quite often; review a product brand or service

I am going to be reviewing a gorgeous costume I was sent recently by online costume store Jokers Masquerade. Halloween is almost here and there's still some time to think about what costume you may want wear at your Halloween festivities. 
I was sent this beautiful 'Dorothy' costume by Jokers Masquerade and I am so impressed with it; it is made so well, fits so nicely and is suuuper comfortable!


I was worried that, in typical Halloween style, this dress would be crazy short and revealing, but it is not that at all! At just above the knee, I found it to be the perfect length and I love how the fabric on the skirt swings out and looks very girly and sweet, it would look perfect with a petticoat underneath.
The top of the dress is a bustier style which is fitted but breathable, giving a gorgeous figure and the fabric is super soft and comfortable, too.
The dress fastens with a hidden zip up the back and features cute gingham spaghetti straps as well as puffed out shoulders so you can wear it slightly off the shoulder.
I found the sizing to be very accurate, too. I have bought costumes online before and have been disappointed at how small the sizing was, but this one is just so true to size and fits like a glove.
I love this costume as it is a real classic and will be recognised by everyone at any party, just add a pair of red shoes and you are good to go!


For a Halloween twist to this costume I created a 'deceased Dorothy' make up look, using these crazy contact lenses which I won in a recent competition from Beautifeye contact lenses
If you want to keep the costume true to its roots you can just apply a light sweeping of brown shadow and some peachy lipstick with these cute french plait pigtails, but I decided to give it a more freaky feel, and added a slight Chelsea smile in bright red and some stitching around the face and neck - making it perfect to wear to a Halloween party.

If you are panicking that you won't receive your costume in time for Halloween - don't! Jokers Masquerade offer all sorts of delivery options, including a click and collect service, where you can pick up your costume at 1 of over 5,000 UK stores just 1-2 days after ordering. Plus, you are guaranteed same day dispatch on all delivery options if you order before 4pm!

I am so impressed with this gorgeous costume and I have been browsing the Jokers Masquerade site for hours now, admiring the endless amount of costumes, and wondering what I should try next?!
