“31 Days…” Day 1: Two-faced Troll

02 Oct

Today was the first day of October, the commencement of my “31 Days of Halloween” costume challenge.  I decided to kick off this project with my two-faced troll costume.  I wore it last year, but I figure if I’m doing 31 days of costumes, I can reuse some of my old favorites. This is definitely one of my favorites.  I like this costume because it’s pretty comfortable (aside from the face full of makeup, which I hate wearing).  I also like it because I totally dumpster dove for the troll hat/mask/thing behind a theater costume shop.  I don’t know what show it was in or who the character was or anything.  I know nothing about it besides the fact that it was once called trash until I reclaimed it as treasure!  (Okay, so I had to repaint parts of the face and I added a cute vintage suede hat because he was bald and scary with devil horns. I wanted to be a disgruntled two-faced troll, not an evil one.)

Two-faced troll.

I wore this today to the theater I am working at and it was three hours before anyone even asked me WHY I was dressed like a troll.  Either I’m strange enough where this is a believable “Monday work day” outfit, or people in this town are far too polite.  Or the third possible theory: Theater people have seen it all so they just shrug. No big deal.

Two-faced troll details: seed & leaf beads, fur vest, troll makeup, and furry troll tufts on my boots.

Happy October, everyone!
