Last minute Halloween Costume ideas!
An obvious option for your Halloween Fancy Dress this year is becoming a Lady Boy! Literally! One of the acts in this years Lady Boys of Bangkok show features the fabulous half male half female costume. This would be super easy to achieve, all you'd need is some male and female clothing you don't mind cutting in half.

Introducing the all new show... The Lady Boys of Hollywood!! ....Joking, of course.
When we stumbled across these amazing photoshopped images of celebrity men transformed in to women we just HAD to share them. The likes of Daniel Craig, Robert Pattinson and even Hugh Heffner have been completely transformed in to an interesting and hilarious set of images channelling their inner Goddess. We can't help but think some of their new found femininity wouldn't look out of place on the Ladyboys of Bangkok tour! Of course they would have to get their hands on a few more sequins and a touch more glitter to fit in properly with the line up, but there's definite potential there.
You can see the full gallery of made over celebrities by clicking here. Which star do you think carries off their male to female transformation the best?
You've probably seen us mention over on theLady Boys twitteraccount that we have teamed up with Stargazer Cosmetics to collaborate with some fabulous UK Beauty Bloggers for an all new make up challenge.

Beauty Blogger's are the some of the most creative lovelies on the internet and the theme this time was Halloween! The glamorous results are in with a spooktacular array of skills on show:

Halloween is almost here!
There's nothing the Lady Boys of Bangkok love to do more than play dress up and what better occasion to do it than at Halloween. This year they have the day off from the tour to celebrate in style (glamorous, spooky style that is) and are currently finding things to do on their way to the last leg of this years Glamorous Amorous tour in Belfast. As they were browsing for some costume inspiration they came across the awe inspiring new collection from Charlotte Olympia in the form of these ultra unique and gorgeous Halloween inspired shoes! Featuring bats and cats and pumpkins (oh my!) the glamorous take on the 31st of October tradition are fangtasticly stylish, but they certainly don't come cheap! With prices starting at just shy of £400 they're certainly an 'investment piece' for your seasonal wardrobe.
What will you be dressing as this Halloween?
Happy Halloween Lady Boys fans! Have a ghoulish time!!
Every girl's style icon Barbie has had a high fashion make over! Fashion designer Herve Leger has created a unique collectors piece in the form of this limited edition Herve Leger by Max Azria Barbie. Barbie comes complete with a stunning red bandage dress and black and white jacquard dress, manufactured at the same factory as the full collection. Not only are these dresses available in miniature Barbie size, but you can also buy the full size dresses from the designer too! Looking endlessly chic and sophisticated, Barbie has come a long way from the baby pink pop look she is more familiarly associated with. Ditching the bleach blonde locks and opting for a richer darker shade of hair colour, Barbie looks as classy as well, any miniature doll in a designer outfit possibly could! If you'd like limited edition Herve Leger by Max Azria Barbie in your life it will set you back the grand total of £110 in the UK and is sold exclusively at the Hervé Léger by Max Azria flagship store…
Autumn is certainly getting a little bit chilly right now in the UK and the Lady Boys of Bangkok are having to wrap on a few more layers of clothing in between shows - a pearly bikini can let a bit of a draft in you know! The hottest trend for Autumn/Winter 2013 is one which the Ladyboys are a massive fan of; TARTAN. With their very own registered tartan in Scotland, the show is a big fan of this ultra wonderful fabric. It's great to see a modern and fashionable take on something more traditional and with celebrities like Katy Perry at the recent iTunes Festival 2013 taking on the tartan trend, it's no wonder that it's becoming increasingly popular every day this season! Here are some of the Lady Boys favourite tartan and plaid pieces from the UK high street this season:
