Halloween Shenanigans

October 22, 2013 - Author: Amy

We were given the chance to go to an annual Halloween concert in Kansas City this past weekend.  It’s aptly named Freaker’s Ball.  (You can see last year’s costumes here.)

It was kind of a last minute decision to go this year, so the night before we ran to Tar-jay for some eyeliner, lipstick, false eyelashes, and yellow hairspray.

Please, tell me you’re familiar with Roy Lichtenstein’s work.. Otherwise your reaction might be “whaaaaaa”.

We’re comic strips!  Get it??

Pop Art Make Up

And it was surprisingly simple.  Just cover your face in foundation a couple shades lighter than your skin, outline the important planes of your face with eyeliner, add in white highlights where you want them before coloring in with lipstick (or blue eye shadow pencil for the tear).  I used the fat kind of eye shadow pencil for the dots.  Glue on some falsies and spray paint your hair.

If you clicked on last year’s link, you saw we were with my brother and sister in law who go all out – Jack the Ripper and a dead hooker last year.  This year?  The Joker and Harley Quinn.

Here’s me and Harley.  (Check out that venue!)

And The Joker!  Yikes!


I just love Halloween.

Are you guys all geared up?  Costumes ready?

I don’t want to give too much away, but Junior is all set.  His costume involves wings and feathers and rhymes with “schmowl”.

Can’t wait to see what all you do!

Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2012 - Author: Amy

Happy Halloween to everyone! 

We kicked off this “holiday season” on Friday with a great concert called Freaker’s Ball with four bands I really love (Red Line Chemistry, 10 Years, Saving Abel, and Chevelle).  D and I donned our wedding gear and went as day of the dead bride and groom.

My brother in law, Jack the Ripper, was there with his favorite dead hooker.

But today I toned it down.  It’s just cowgirl Amy and her trusty steed, Poncho.

This is my mom, Hobo Harry.

And my favorite little feller is a lion.  He’s been practicing saying “rawrrrr” all week, but unfortunately wasn’t too stoked about the hood.

Showing off his adorable little tail.

So much win!

Are you guys dressing up?  What about your little childrens?  Send pictures!!
