Halloween Glam: American Horror Story Hotel's The Countess

And the last of my Halloween costumes for this year...The Countess (a la Lady Gaga) from American Horror Story Hotel. This one was a total blast to create- from the makeup to the costume. Again, the recently lightened blonde hair made this look even easier. But of course, the most important part of this costume is the glove! If you haven't seen the show yet, just take my word for it that it's a highlight of most episodes.

The awesome guy working at Value Village went searching for a silver/grey glove that I was hoping to find, and ended up finding this amazing set of sequinned gloves. Talk about a perfect find! It didn't have the metallic claws, though, so I found myself some black plastic nails, painted them in Essie's No Place Like Chrome, and super glued them to the tips of the gloves. The brooch was a last minute touch from my own jewelry chest. Oh and those glittery dots of blood? I found an awesome set of glam vampire stickers at Value Village. The perfect touch.

As for the dress and cape blazer, I had them both in my closet already from Vancouver Fashion Week earlier this year. It's always great to have an excuse to use those again!

Of course, Lady Gaga's signature beauty look in the show is her bleached brows, shadow cat-eye and ombre vampy lips. NYX's V'amped Up! Lip Top Coat was the perfect way to create the ombre vampire lip look. Just apply it all around the edges of your applied red lipstick and smudge in!

  1. The material is 55% cotton and 45% polyester. Normally I wear a small. I got the size M to be on the safe side. It's roomy but not too big. The comfort scrubs feel nice and are comfortable.

  2. The financial realities of a boutique hotel are unique. The appearance of three to five star service with a two star budget is the norm, and the gm's get caught in the middle. The boutique hotel just does not have the budget to staff like a true luxury property and everyone has to pull their weight. The gm who does not will not be there long and hate every second of their lives. Corporate Guest House in Bandra
