Halloween look: blue-haired mermaid

This Halloween I decided to go all out blue, starting with the whole BLUE HAIR DON'T CARE!!! vibe, and transforming into a shimmery mermaid complete with shell bikini and glittering face jewels. My candyfloss pool float provided a sugary sweet sparkly finish to proceedings, whilst the blue gem tiara cemented the icing on the turquoise cake. Last Halloween I became a very pink version of Penelope Pitstop which I adored, but this year I wanted to break away from pink and focus on a new colour tone for this Hallow-season. My Instagram feed currently showcases more vibrancy; I love all colours of the rainbow, and I really want my aesthetic to reflect as much. I posted a Blue Moon Queen make-up look over on the 'gram too, complete with blue eyes, lips, eyebrows, icicles and the electric blue hair ♥︎

Colourful hair is a MOOD and I'm making a vow to keep experimenting with different colours, Halloween or no-ween! After our last attempt at shooting this look was rained off I decided second time round this one was happening come storm or snowfall, and despite quite a heavy rain shower we managed to pull off the pictures. This autumn and winter I'm trying to embrace the spirit of seasonal shifts a bit more which will reflect in my upcoming fashion content (we even shot a fairly Christmassy outfit a few weeks back!) But to hell was I going to let the weather put the kibosh on my blue Halloween!

One of my friends sweetly said my blue look reminded her of Queen Frostine from Candy Land and after a quick google search I was elated and over the blue moon to be compared to such a sassy stunnah! Candy Land also looks pretty to-die-for and I wanna live there, as soon as possible please.

My Skinnydip London Shell Carmen tote bag topped off the whole under-the-sea aura. This blue look was so much fun to rock that I really begrudged taking it off! After my blue moon queen make-up had been finished for Instagram I seriously considered keeping it all on - blue hair et al, to greet my friend later that night but alas I didn't! The blue vibe seems to have gone down really well on social media which I'm thrilled about. Thank you so much for all your continued support, be it on this blog or anywhere else! It means the world ♥︎

    I have a guilty confession: I have watched all three seasons of H2O Just Add Water on NetFlix (teen age Australian mermaids) many many times.
    You are a lovely Halloween mermaid!
