Hey everyone. I'm home sick from work today since I woke up feeling rather pukey. Bad news for me, GOOD NEWS FOR YOU! A new blog post. XD
So, I absolutely love dressing up. I am a theater geek at heart and participated in school plays and musicals from 7th grade until my senior year of high school. I feel like Halloween is one of those times where you can have a great excuse to be really creative not just with the costume but also the MAKEUP! I know I teased my Halloween costume before in the Snowy Ice Princess tutorial with my cosplay cat ears and paws I got. Well I did a little DIY at the last minute to make the rest of my outfit for Puss in Boots.
I bought a foam pirate hat, sword, feather, and ribbon from Michaels. Luckily, with coupons in tow, my total was less than $11! Process: black-out pirate print, hot glue ribbon to edge of hat, glue side of hat up with feather.
Then I cut holes into the hat and pinned the cat ears on both sides. Masking taped the inside so the pins didn't snag my hair. ^^
And here is a look at my makeup. Can you tell my foundation is 2-toned?
Here's a list of what I used:
Graftobian Hi-Def Foundation Palette (lightest foundation for around
mouth and eyes, darker orangey foundation for cheeks, nose, and forehead)
Graftobian Concealer Palette
MAC Blot Powder
Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack (contour sides of nose, outline cat nose)
NYX Cream Blush in Glow
Ben Nye Grande Lumiere Palette (Ice + Azalea)
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Ben Nye Grande Lumiere Palette (Iced Gold and Tangerine)
Revlon Colorstay Quad in Copper Spice (dark brown for contour)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Zero
False Lashes from Sugar Cosmetics and Model21
GEO Annex Ring Black circle lenses
Graftobian Concealer Palette (upper lip and edges of lower lip)
NYX Round Lipstick in Doll (dabbed on inside of lower lip)
A couple better pics with the hat on!
This reminds me of Captain Kangaroo for some reason. Anyone else remember that show?
My full costume. I already had the top, skirt, and bustier.
And a couple from the party! You can see a bit of my tail here.
What is this gorilla behind me?! (you can see how short I am here, LOL)
The gorilla of my dreams! <3
Hope you all had a Happy Halloween! Let me know what you dressed up as in the comments! ^^
