One of the really great things about Halloween for some folks is that it allows you to indulge the id a little bit, giving you permission to dress in ways that are unimaginable to you 364 other days of the year. Take for example, this Bastet costume from WishedOn, this is not the clothing of pixel prudery. No, this is exhibitionist clothing and how fun is it that Halloween’s unrestrained foolery frees our inner Jezebels.
It’s worth knowing that the pants are crotchless, so you may want to make yourself some flesh toned panties if you are going to be out partying, espeecially if you’re dancing. Walking and standing the coverage is okay, but dancing? Let’s just say I can imagine what would happen during one of those high kicks.
I have to give Sky Everett two thumbs up for this marvelously outrageous hair. Sure, it’s anachronistic, but it still feels right. The hair may be 24th century, but it has that 100 BC feel to it anyway. If Cleo had hair gel and mousse, she would have worn this.
The shoes comes with the outfit and, to my great surprise, worked really well. Most of the time, I elect to wear some of my own shoes rather than ones that come with because shoe making and dress-making are different skills and many designers with great skill at one may be merely competent at shoe-making.
With all the bejeweled system pieces, you may easily elect to wear no extra jewelry. However, if you do wear jewelry, go for something that contrasts with the fine crystals of the systemwear and opt for big, bold gold pieces such as Cleopatra or Nefertiti would have worn. Pieces such as these from the DeLa Callas line. The earrings come with the headdress and hair from Sky Everett.
So….if being a Goddess on Earth appeals, think about Bastet for your Halloween costumery. Seriously, nothing says International Woman of Mystery like being a Goddess.
