desperados

I worked today. B took the kids to a costume party.

Now, besides the little voice in my head squeaking 'this is so unfair!' and 'I wanted to do that!' I was a little afraid that Bear would forget part of Rosey's costume. Or he'd freeze up when it came time to do their makeup.

Last night B and I sat down and did a dry run. Well, sorta. In the midst of me explaining the mixing and how to create the look of fake hair, B decided there was no time like the present and began to paint me.

And since C was a werewolf and R a purple kitty? I looked a bit...um...demented.

His make-up skills, though? Awesome.

So, if you're driving the back roads today and you happen to pass a hideous monster and a purring (although unusually colored) cat?

Be not afraid. They like people.....



.....but only for lunch.

Love the punch line AND the awesome monster and purring kitten. Feed them before you send them to my house, OK? I scare easily, especially if that monster were to be growling with hunger.....

Great costumes. The makeup turned out well! I think purple is a good colour for a cat. Waaaay better than the normal black.
