Today I found one of those perfect ways to while away a Friday afternoon after a stressful morning (ha!) trawling London for the perfect products: face-painting!
I've been thinking about this look for Halloween for a while now - and today I finally took the plunge and... painted about half of my face brown. I saw the idea such a long time ago on another blog, and tweaked it around until it suited me - and I plan to do some more tweaking later!
It took me a while to adjust; I looked like I'd been left out in the sun too long, just like the marvellous David Dickinson who permanently seems to live his life in sepia. And, after about 10 baby wipes and thrashing out the details - which still require a little more thrashing - and the donning of some purple antlers (surprisingly hard to find even though we're edging nearer to the C-word (not THAT c-word!) )... I became a deer.
Insert terrible Photobooth candid here.
It's far from perfect - it looks a little ganguro girl chic as the brown face paint was too orangey - and the white looks too stark... But I'm enjoying my current costumey status.
What's your chosen Halloween transformation?
