This didn’t begin as a look. I was testing out different ways to sew dried latex to create a “back alley surgery” kind of look while watching Chucky II. But I really liked how it turned out! What do you think? My dad was having pretty major surgery the same day. I was going to wear this to visit him in the hospital but decided it may not be the best idea. The nurses don’t usually have the same kind of dark humour as us!

But that didn’t stop me rocking my new blood splatter nails! Check them out below for a finished look of how I’ve combined the tips in my recent nail art tips for blood post.

October is really going now! Halloween stuff has hit stores in Australia, I’ve been having fun with fake gore and been ankles deep in the Michael Meyers’ Halloween series. What about you, is your October living up to the hype?

I’m wearing a tulle dress (worn as a skirt) from Gypsy Warrior, boat neck top from Asos, belt from Kmart, socks are borrowed from Coen and the oxfords are from Forever 21.

    Nurses have dark humour too – at least the ones I know – but it's a different sense of dark humour that comes about from doing a job that, depending on what kind of nursing they do, can make encountering a lot of unpleasant things part of the job, and sometimes having a sense of humour about it is the best way to cope. Plus, you get Goth nurses (my partner is one!), which is always an interesting combination.

    That said, you were probably right in refraining from the wound prosthetics. It'd be more likely to gross out the patients than the nurses (they've probably seen real wounds that are worse), but there'd probably be a few nurses and patients who would think it inappropriate.
