Halloween is my favourite time of the year!

For a makeup obsessed junkie like I am, Halloween is my favourite time of the year because I get to dress up and do crazy things with my makeup that I normally wouldn't get to do! I just bought my costume online today and I'm sooo excited to get it in the mail! I was planning on making my outfit from scratch, but I figured that would be too time consuming for what I wanted to do. This way, I spent a little bit more money, but I can alter it the way I like. The past few years, my 3 besties and I have been doing themes. This year we will all be superheroes/villians and I get to be POISON IVY! I've ALWAYS wanted to be poison ivy because I thought Uma Thurman's makeup and costumes were AMAZING in the Batman movie she starred in. My other friends will be Wonder Woman, Cat Woman, and Electra. Here is a picture of my costume and the wig I bought to go with it (cuz you gotta be a red head!)



However, I don't think anything will top what we were last year. We dressed as members from the band KISS! Honestly, if you wanna feel what it would feel like to be a celebrity for just one night, get a few of your girlfriends and dress up like KISS. I swear people would stop us on the street, the bus, inside the venue and pictures kept firing off on us. I probably had over a 100 people want a picture with us/take a picture of us! It seriously was the best costume idea ever. People went CRAZY! I had a blast :) We also would have won $1000 if we would have entered the contest *sigh*. Everyone said they would have voted for us. Anyways, here are a few of my fave pics from Halloween Night (we went out like 3 nights in a row!) haha. I'm "The Demon" Gene Simmons (or the short one if you don't know who he is... I'm like 5'7 and considered short next to my friends! I thought I was tall for a girl).

Yes, that is a T-rex skeleton behind us! Someone just walked around in that all night! People go crazy with their costumes for Halloween at this place!

I had my tongue out in a lot of pictures for GENE SIMMONS, but I didn't want to put those ones up cuz it would always take the paint off my face.

  2. @Becca - the makeup wasn't hard for me because I'm pretty good at copying a look as long as I have a picture in front of me. Making everything even was a challenge. I had to outline everything before I filled it all in. We all did our own makeup so I was impressed at how well they all came out!
