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??
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!
