We first met this pair of forensic utterers, Aussie barristers, in the previous post.
Away from their professional life as barristers, these gorgeous sisters, Hatticus & Fatticus, love showing off their funny side especially around Halloween including that just gone.
Never to miss an opportunity for displaying their wit & wizardry, the ladies decided, this year, to put their macabre sense of humour into practice for the annual Law Chambers Halloween party.
Wanting a fun night of light-hearted cunning, witchcraft & maleficum, they decided to go as down-right ugly witchmongers, as lawyer hags 🙂
“After dark tonight, we’re gonna do a bit of consorting with the devil. Yes, we’re going out looking for witch hunters & witch prickers“ they cackled.
“And if we find any we will indeed utter curses against them” they chortled.
Transforming themselves into witches really didn’t take long as their normal court attire of wigs, gowns & jabots, formed the basis of their costume.
Why wouldn’t an eccentric 18thC horsehair wig be most suitable for a Halloween costume?
Why wouldn’t their basic appearance & clothing, the sweeping black batwinged robes they wear in court, be suitable?
They each wore an ugly face mask, a black wig (under the powdered wig) & black lacy gloves.
They wore a large cross on their chest.
Their black rimmed spectacles fitted the occasion well.
They took along their pointy black hats for when the thunder storms, they summoned, rolled in later in the evening.
They left their black cats & toads at home as well as their cherished grimoires & spell books due to their calling of thunder storms for later 🙂
A few spiders came along for the ride …
Talk about calling up a Halloween storm! 🙂
