Death symbols and fabric choices? (Halloween help please)

Post by [Tank] » Sun Sep 14, 2008 9:30 pm

Ok, I'mma be Death for halloween and I need ideas for accessories :D
Posted something in Wanted and Harr, but I was wondering what I could get for accessories?
I've got an hourglass to hang from a belt, a string of tarot cards to hang from said belts and a few pouches of herbs and gemstones and runes and whatnot (I'm going the whole hog and actually filling them even though no-one will see :lol: ), a realllly big ankh to ALSO hang from my belt, but I was wondering if anyone else had any other fun ideas to hang from belt/neck/scythe/arm etc :D.
Need inspiration ^__^;

Also, anyone got any good fabric ideas? Do you think spiderweb lace would be too tacky?
To begin with, a dog is not mad. you see a dog growls when it's angry, and wags its tail when it's pleased. Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I am mad.

Other accessories to do with time would be nice, like a broken pocketwatch or even a spooky-looking diary (with appointments of all the famous people you've collected). There are lists of death dates on Wikipedia. Spiderweb lace can look tacky sometimes - what about fake cobwebs?
WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN

Oooh that's a really good idea actually.
And yeah I was worried about the spiderwebs, but I dont want to just do plain black or anything, so any patterns that'd look good?

*Goes to search for pocketwatches on ebay*
Love the idea of the diary filled with celebrities names as well, maybe all the ones I dont like xD.
Thanks very much ^^;

Anyone else with any ideas? I was thinking of a veil for the face, but I'm not sure, halp xD!

Or you could try prosthetics for the face, built it up so it looks like you've got really sunken eyes and cheeks and stuff? Hmm.

I was thinking I could go for lots of contouring and highlighting with dark and light shadows, as I'm not that good with prosthetics of any kind :i10:
