Wordful Wednesday - Goth

>> Tuesday, October 11, 2011

My cousin from California was a sort of Goth girl in high school. She wore dark makeup and had a mohawk. If you aren't into the Goth scene it isn't probably a stage you dream your child will go through. Did you see the Raising Hope episode when Jimmy would only answer to Drakkar Noir? OMG that was hilarious (as is almost every episode but...)!

This year I asked Piper what she wanted to be for Halloween and gave me her normal "Let me think about it" answer she always does. I remembered a costume I got for $2 at Target a few years back when all Halloween went 90% off. The girls still love playing dress up so I scooped it up. When I showed the costume to Piper she said she would wear it trick or treating - such an easy going little girl.

She was invited to a classmate's Halloween themed birthday party this past weekend. I looked at it as dress rehearsal for the big day. Saturday afternoon I applied the makeup, fixed her hair so it was off her face, and helped her to get dressed. She rocked this costume!

So we all pile in the car and head to the birthday party. We are driving through the neighborhood and since Piper had the invitation I asked her what the address was. She told me and I continued to hunt for it but couldn't find the house. I pulled over and asked her for the paper. As I was looking at it something clicked. It said 10/9/11 and I immediately realized it was the wrong day! It was the 8th! I am normally late for everything but for this party I was early. A whole day early! So we went home and I took a few more pictures of her :)

Baby girl had Awana on Sunday night right after the real party so Violet was sweet enough to lend her the Mary Had a Little Lamb costume she will be wearing this year. Goth girls (and guys) must use some heavy duty makeup remover because it was tough getting that off Piper on Saturday. I was for sure not going to attempt it on Sunday.

We have 2 more occasions to wear this and she can't wait! The last 2 shots in this set were processed with free Ghost Stories Photoshop Actions.

That is amazing! I don't know that it would be if it were her daily look, but as dress up it's so, so cool!
