Halloween collaboration with Poundstretcher part 2: Witches and Vampires for children

For the second part of my Halloween collaboration with Poundstretcher, I asked my two gorgeous little cousins, Lexie and Sophie, to join me in the studio for an afternoon of spooky fun! (Read part one here where I created an adult Halloween look of Cleopatra).

Poundstretcher kindly sent me a lovely package full of spooky goodies which included:

  • Two neon striped wigs in black with pink and black with orange – £2.99
  • Vampire kit – £1.99
  • Witch kit – £1.99
  • Fangs and blood kit – 99p

I wanted to use the two kits which Poundstretcher sent to me which comprised of a Witch and a Vampire kit along with the Neon Striped Wig and the Fangs and Blood kit. You can see the two looks and how to recreate them below!
