Countdown to Halloween : Creature & Mummy Fashionistas
October 29, 2014
Double creature feature today. It wasn’t intentional, but when I think about it’s perfect considering that it’s only…
Two Days until Halloween!
The Creature from the Black Lagoon celebrated it’s 60th theatrical release anniversary on March 5th of this year. If you noticed the Cryptkeeper Countdown used it as the inspiration for their layout and buttons. This movie just so happens to be one of my favorite creature features as well. Don’t get me wrong, the classic monsters are always fun, but there was just something so empathetic about the Creature and I loved that this film still gave me a scare…60 years later while fighting for it’s title with the modern-date flicks to make you fear the bump in the night.
Creating a fashionista based solely on the creature was a bit of a challenge so I stole some additional inspiration from his lady of admiration. One day, I’d love to dress from the film and do a shoot. The challenge would be making a creature costume…most certainly.
Regardless, I think my Creature fashionista turned out pretty well. The main focus being on her scales and swimsuit. Certainly no haute couture compared to the others, but it’s still cute. I’ll have to see if I can brainstorm something more..fashion-y for the creature some time again.
My Mummy fashionista took a lot of inspiration from references of Egyptian inspired fashion-wear and some authentic Egyptian jewelry. Of course, the mummy wraps are the give-away sign of the mummy.
The Mummy fashionista was supposed to be shared last week, but I didn’t actually get around to it as I’m sure some of you noticed. My only missed day in the countdown thus far. I’m so proud of myself. There were some close calls and some make-up days, but with the exception of the missed fashionista day, I’ve done every day so far! Yay! Only two left. I think I can handle it. 😉
