Back to the Fuschia

Mmm.... October... this means only one thing: I can dial my Halloween obsession up to 11. Especially since I did virtually nothing last year aside from watch lots of old-school horror flicks. Actually I think some of my friends still haven't completely forgiven me for exposing them to Sleepaway Camp. But digress.

Costumes: at first I was thinking Dexter victim. Then I went to the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit and fell back in love with the flight attendant costumes from The Fifth Element. Then I started wondering if I could do a realistic Kat Von D. But now I kinda just wanna go back to my roots and be Jem. (And yes, the Misfits were better but I've been there, done that. Twice. What can I say? I'm an 80s girl through and through).
Check out this Jem-inspired 2008 editorial from Dazed and Confused. If this doesn't make you want to slap on a pink wig and smear the entire contents of your make-bag all over your face then I guess I just don't understand you kids these days... via
