Here is the second of my "last minute costume" theme- Sugar Skulls! I was inspired on pinterest by all the beautiful sugar skull ladies on there and I think, even though I didn't come close to their style, I did pretty good. My mom didn't even know it was me in the make up!
I used flowers and jewelry I had lying around, wore an outfit I'd actually wear to work, and used two eye shadow sticks for the face paint. My eyebrows are still a little black (three days later).
|Dress: Handmade/Me from Thrifted Bedsheets, Boots: Gift from Angela|
|6 Individual Hair Clips: Handmade/Me, Cardi: Thrifted, Jewelry: Handmade/Me|
|Tights: Target, Arm Warmers: K-Mart, Belt: My Grandmother's|
Here is a side view of the make up. My mister even helped me with the pictures! Isn't he grand? I'm wearing three of my cameo skull necklaces, one of which is on a vintage rosary.
The flower headband look was achieved by combining the power of all my flower clips and just clipping them across my head.
From the front. I'm a creepy little devil, huh? But I'm awfully cute, too. ;-)
I know if you follow my twitter, pinterest or facebook that you've already seen this picture floating around because I made it my profile picture. I told my mister that he should just be glad I don't try and look like this all the time (believe me, I would wear crazy pale make up and look dead all the time if I could!).
I hope you have a safe and fun Halloween! Until next time! xoxo
