"Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" may have come out in 1971, but it isn't a film that will soon be forgotten. Factor in the 2005 remake, and you have a plethora of Halloween costume ideas at your fingertips.
Sure, you've probably seen plenty of Wonkas running around your local watering hole on October 31, and every year we see the occasional group costume of Charlie's grandparents who can't get out of bed. But what about the rest of the rugrats? Violet Beauregarde is a classic costume to rock for Halloween, but especially if you're basing it on the original film, most people carry it out with a beach ball of some sort under their clothes (I mean, have you seen the movie?).
Enter Ellie Addis, an 18-year-old makeup artist based in the U.K. While watching "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" with her family, she decided to create her own Violet Beauregarde look with a fun twist.
“I used a beauty blender to start blending the face paint across my nose,” she told Bustle. “I made sure the edges were more blended than the rest to give the spreading effect.” Is it just me, or is this sooo much more high fashion than your typical blueberry-faced Violet costume?
The look quickly took off, and soon people all over Instagram were making Violet looks of their own, no beach ball required. Which is your favorite?
