Fancy Dress Idea - Amy Winehouse

Seeing as it's Halloween on Monday, I thought I'd share my favourite fancy dress idea. I dressed up as Amy Winehouse for my boyfriends birthday, and it was the easiest fancy dress ever!

The only thing I bought was my wig, which was £20 from a fancy dress shop. You can get these cheaper on ebay but as I had no time I didn't have much choice!
I then wore a white vest top with a black bra (classy!) and denim shorts, with some battered leopard print pumps I was about to throw out. I'm afraid I don't have any pictures of my full outfit :(
I wore lots of gold chains round my neck, and also picked up a fake tattoo kit from the fancy dress shop which had Amy's exact tattoos! You can also find these on ebay.

For my make up I of course went for the trade mark black eye liner - the bigger the better! I also drew on a black dot for her lip piercing.

Easy peasy!

Here's a few more pictures from the night
