Hello my friends. Another not so crafty post today. I have been wanting to share my girls' Halloween costumes with you. Since Sandy had just hit us, and there was widespread damage to trees and power lines, our Halloween was postponed until Friday after Halloween. We settled for a quick jaunt around a close by neighborhood, since we don't actually live in one. ( which is perfectly fine with me!)
My girls are
getting older, and cute, fun costumes are not desirable. Especially with
Alizabeth obsessed with zombies. She thinks they are pretty cool, and
often plays zombie hunting games on the game system. I think zombie
makeup is cool too. I often wonder and think to myself, how much my life
would be different if I had pursued makeup as a career. Not fashion
makeup, horror makeup. You might see some mistakes, but I have models
who don't like me getting too close to their eyes, and I definitely
don't have the 'correct' makeups for some use, but since we were just
trick or treating,perfection wasn't a big deal. When the girls were
younger, I loved painting their faces, and they loved it too, until I
was done, then they wanted to scratch and couldn't, so less and less as
they have gotten older have I been allowed to do it.
thought that going as a DOLL was pretty scary stuff. I mean, how many
horror stories are focused on dolls. So here is my Doll Baby.
love those big fake eyes, and the tiny little lips. She wore an old
dress of Alizabeths, with dress shoes and crinoline at the bottom. She
I have deliberately put Alizabeth second, so you can
run away and chose NOT to look at her pic. I used a cheapie cheapie
makeup kit and used the fake scar stuff to rough up her cheeks. I also
used black paint mixed with the red blood to create a more realistic
look. She has touches of green in the pale makeup, as well as two shades
of red blood.
I WARN YOU< THIS IS SCARY!!!
Here she is...
we went outside, I took the rest of a tube of blood and oozed it down
her arms and neck and hair. She loved it. She was quite scary and
frightened many of her teenage friends.
