“For me, nothing is sexier than a flight attendant. Hollywood is full of sexy flight attendants, raising expectations for travelers who are too often disappointed by the reality of the girls in the sky. That’s why this Halloween, I’m giving people what they want: the archetype of the attractive flight attendant, complete with elegance, class and true sex appeal.” Gigi Peng (firstname.lastname@example.org) is a Beijing-based fashion designer.
Step 1: As a designer, I made these red short shorts, but you can have a tailor fit some to your own body type.
Step 2: Get a top at least two sizes too small and a pillbox hat to match.
Step 3: Make sure your makeup is perfect. Red lipstick and lots of eyeliner is a must.
Rabbit WitchDesigner: Nie Yurong
“I’m a senior fashion design student at China Central Academy of Fine Arts. I designed this sexy, active little witch for this year’s Halloween. She likes a revealing cut, silk stockings, red rabbit ears and plays tricks on her friends with her black leather whip.” Nie Yurong (email@example.com) is a fashion design student at the Central Academy of Fine Arts.
Step 1: Purchase lace stockings (¥60) and black rabbit fur (¥80) at Jingdu Textile City.
Step 2: Cut out four fabric rabbit ears. Sew two pieces back to back, turn inside out and sew around the edge to insert a piece of wire.
Step 3: Buy a long strip of patent leather (¥30/meter at Jingdu Textile City) and wrap it around your body.
Zombie CoupleDesigners: Andy Deemer and Michelle Woo
“Zombies are back in force! With H1N1 threatening the human race, this is the perfect way to indulge your inner-zombie and make peace with your future at the same time. After deliberating between Dashan of the Dead and a bloodthirsty Grannie Police zombie, we settled on the two that fell closest to home: The Wai-gore-ren and The Swine Flu-wuyuan. Before you leave home, though, keep in mind: Chinese zombies don’t run; they hop.”
Step 1: Add thin layers of skin-safe liquid latex, available at Meishuguan art shops and local adult stores, for rotting athlete’s foot of the face and malignant growths on the legs.
Step 2: Give your skin a deadened pallor, bruises and gangrened sores with white, black and green Peking opera makeup (¥5 on Xicaoshi Jie).
Step 3: Finish off your look with details like fake rotting teeth, garishly-colored nail polish and a blood-soaked H1N1 flu mask.
