This Dead Couple Costume was a complete last minute jobby!

I managed to pick up an Indian wedding outfit from a charity shop on the morning of the party, and wore the skirt pulled up as a dress and turned the shawl into a veil using a hair slide and super glue. My boyfriend already had a suit and bow tie, so all we needed was white face paint, icy blue lipstick and nail varnish, and mounds of talc and hairspray. I then ran over the road to the florist and asked for any dead flowers that she was throwing away – she made me this gorgeous bunch and refused to take payment.

It must have cost about £10 for the both of us, and everyone LOVED our costumes!
