Halloween Costume!

“Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
“Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,” I said, “art sure no craven,
Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore—
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!”
            Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”
– Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven

This year I’m going as a raven for Halloween. My costume is pretty simple, but I’m happy with the outcome. I dusted off an old cape I had that looks like wings. Under my cape, I’m wearing a black dress, leggings, and black booties. I’m not the queen of makeup, but I took a stab at doing some simple face makeup and false lashes based on images I found online, giving the suggestion of a bird’s face. I braided my hair with some black feathers as well.
