My Halloween costume for 2013: Barnabas Collins from the Tim Burton movie Dark Shadows. This year I improved on the costume by doing my makeup a little better, added the ring (that I made last year and forgot to wear) to my finger, repainted and slightly resculpted the finger extensions, made new cuff links, and added the black stitching to the shirt collar and sleeve cuffs. This year, I painted blood on myself so even those who hadn't seen the movie would understand that I was a vampire. I ended up winning 4th place in a costume contest. The photo above is from when I had finished the makeup and hair and I was about to get the finger extensions on and paint the blood on my face.
