It’s been a massive day today. I got up and did a couple of hours study. Then I was feeling bored and at a loose end, so I called my gorgeous friend Sam and we met for lunch. It was a brilliant way to blow out the cobwebs and recharge after a gruelling week.
This is what I wore today:
I am wearing:
– Red sequinned pillbox fascinator from Pulp Kitchen
– Red polka dot tee shirt from Target
– Red pencil skirt from Christopher Ari
– Red polka dot wedge shoes from Target
– Clown brooch from Uncle Buck’s
– Amethyst ring
– Gold locket
I felt pretty special in this outfit today. It might have been a little bit dressy for a Saturday, but I don’t care. I felt a little like Betty Boop.
I added a little heart sticker to my cheek for extra cuteness.
I’m wearing one of my red robin tattoos from Amazing Raymond. I traced around the edges with the Scar Red tattoo paint, so give it a raised, irritated look, so that it appears more like a freshly inked tattoo. I also added a little Diamond FX paint to the underside of the robin’s wings to make them glimmer in the sunshine.
This afternoon, I experimented for a while with some special effects makeup. Next weekend I am hosting a Rocky Horror party to celebrate the end of my exams, and Ross needs a wound as part of his costume. I fiddled around for a bit, and this is what I came up with:
Gruesome, no? I am pretty happy with it. I will do a little more work on the technique over the next few days to see if I can’t perfect it. If you guys are interested, I would be happy to do a tutorial on this special effects makeup so that you can do it yourself at home. (I only used household materials for this wound. All the materials are things that you can buy at the supermarket or a junk store. I didn’t want to use any specialty makeup products if I didn’t have to).
I hope you are all having a good weekend so far.
