If you follow me on Instagram you may well have seen what I wore on New Year’s Eve – I decided to go Japanese anime this year!
Whilst I am a big fancy dress fan, I haven’t been to a fancy dress party since I started the blog, so it had to be something I thought you guys would like 😉
The idea simply came about because I was ordering a few bits from ASOS and for some reason decided to browse the wig section (I think I was thinking about the gorgeous bloggers Aminta and Frassy who are both wig fans) – I just added the pink ombre wig to the basket on a whim. I didn’t have any intention of keeping it, I just wanted to try it on for fun… but I absolutely LOVED it. Then I found out my mum was hosting an impromptu fancy dress party for New Year – and an outfit instantly sprang to mind.
Apart from the wig and stockings (ordered off eBay), everything was stuff I had anyway. The dress has been seen on the blog here and here (although I tacked the hem up a bit to shorten it), and my mum had some tartan fabric which I cut into a strip to make the bow. My make up – mimicking the huge eyes of anime characters – was my best effort copied off “living” anime girl Anastasiya Shpagina – if you haven’t seen this girl yet you should check her out. All at once beautiful but reeeeeally creepy.
I now just have to think of some way of incorporating this wig into my everyday attire…!
