I’m off to a Hallowe’en party on Saturday and I’ve been trying to find a costume. My first plan was to paint my face green and go as the Wicked Witch of the West.
Or, if I was feeling slightly more cultured on the night, Idina Menzel’s Elphaba.
Plan B, after searching through google images for inspiration, is to try my hand at a Dia De Los Muertos skull. The photos below are from various sources (I only wish my face painting were that good!) and are somehow remarkably beautiful and delightfully morbid at the same time.
