Little Red Riding Hood


Hey everyone! As per tradition, like I’ve been doing for around 5 years now, here is my Halloween costume for this year! I’m sure you’ve already guessed what I might be, based on the title or by my iconic red cape, but if you scrolled right past all of that… I’m Little Red Riding Hood!

When it comes to my Halloween costumes, I absolutely love dressing up and I start thinking about what I want to be months in advance. You already know that I don’t celebrate the actually holiday itself, neither do my family, but the part I love is being a character and wearing a costume for a fun photo shoot – all for you readers!

So far I’ve been Cat Woman, Tinkerbell, Wonder Woman, Miss Captain America, and now Little Red Riding Hood is added to the mix. It’s hard narrowing it down to what might be my favourite from all of the years and I know last years Cap costume tips it for me, but this one does come close. I just love them all and I find them all unique in their own way.

I actually purchased this costume a few weeks ago and luckily it wasn’t too cold in the woods when we shot these photos. I did have to do a bit of hiding though when some walkers went by as the skirt area on this costume is incredibly short, but it was all fun! I thought the Little Red Riding Hood costume would suit the thigh high boots though as it gives it more of a mature, darker edge. Plus I loved the velvet material in the burgundy shade, it’s really luxurious for a cheaper costume.

So here I am, in all my Little Red Riding Hood glory, getting into character in the woods. Naive and innocent, then further along, shock and fear sets in as I’m approaching the wolf at grandmas house… and on that note… my what big teeth you have…

Lorna xx.

    Wow, Lorna. Now, that’s what I call a sexy outfit. The red hood and dress are so beautiful and perfectly combined with those sexy boots. The big bad wolf is going to get his ass kicked.

    Wow Lorna! I visited your blog as I was keen to see your yearly Halloween post. I always look forward to it, and you’ve really outdone yourself once again! I love your edgy and updated version of Little Red Riding Hood. You look fabulous and very sassy! I love the way you committed to the theme and captured a real story in these images, which turned out to be very atmospheric.

    Lots of love Saba xx

      Thank you so much, Saba! I’m glad people get excited about my Halloween posts! They’re definitely a tradition now. I’m pleased it came up to scratch as well and you really liked it, thank you!

    A wolf who doesn’t appreciate this look isn’t worthy of the name. πŸ™‚

      Awwwooooooooo! Ha ha πŸ˜€

    You completely look the part, it’s such a beautiful outfit. It’s a great choice for Halloween as it is quite a scary story if you are the right age. πŸ™‚

    I’m amused by the idea of you going into the woods and actually hiding! πŸ˜€ Mind you, I hid a bit on Halloween too… after the first 18 trick or treaters had called at the house I didn’t have enough sweets left so I had to pretend to be out. πŸ˜‰

    • November 4, 2017 / 1:23 pm

      Ha ha, yeah that happens! There’s always more than you think πŸ˜€ Glad you like the costume though!

      • November 4, 2017 / 6:03 pm

        Last year none knocked on my door… so hard to judge but I thought 20 treats would be more than enough. Oh yes, terrific costume. πŸ˜€

        • November 4, 2017 / 6:28 pm

          Next year you will buy too many and then nobody will come πŸ˜€
