These days the internet is a very strange place for me. In my part of the world we don´t celebrate Halloween and I lost interest in costumes when I realized that no costume and makeup in the world has the ability to turn me into an elf. If I tried that, I'd look like a Hobbit who has a penchant for cross-dressing.
However, since I recognize that there are people who look quite fantastic in costume and I am constantly stumbling upon fantastic costumes in Blogland, I decided to share some great ones with you. Some images serve only as inspiration. The rest are with tutorials: http://nur-noch.blogspot.de/2014/10/best-of-halloween-costumes.html

I wish you a great Halloween!
