Ballet Gothique

21 10 2009

Sometimes inspiration for the right costume or even the right look can come from those who know you best.  A few weeks ago, I was trying to come up with the perfect outfit to wear to a surprise birthday party for the lovely Saiyge Lotus and was feeling particularly blocked.  It was a Goblin Ball, but not being very goblin-y myself, I decided to just go with something dark.  You’d think that would be relatively easy for me, but I still found myself struggling to come up with something fun and unique.  Enter the wonderful Gabby Panacek, who I was chatting with via IM at the time.  When I told her of my dilemma, she casually suggested I go as a Goth Ballerina.

 Cue the light bulbs and fanfare!  That was something I knew I could pull off, which I did.  And, I enjoyed the look so much that I decided to blog it as part of my mix and match Halloween Costume series, with a few slight variations.
