wearing Kryolan aqua color makeup, thrifted skirt and top, Saks Fifth Avenue scarf, earrings made by my sister, DIY tissue paper flowers (Tara is one hell of an Indian warrior princess)

Halloween eve had me navigating public transportation with a bunch of horny costumed Chilean Miners, sneaking into a party via a chain link fence and a parked van, and dancing to godawful hipster techno on a rooftop. If this was any other weekend I would consider it a resounding failure. But it's not. It's Halloween. Stakes is low.

My makeup turned out pretty awesome if I don't say so myself. I had a dry run on Friday at a work costume contest, where I took home the top prize of a new ipod touch, which I desperately needed so, WIN.

Also, my friends were Two A-holes from SNL and in character all night. It was awesome.

  2. Love the freaky floral headgear! Curious to know how long the makeup took - a) to put on b) to wash off..

  3. I love this! Your face painting is flawless. I thought about being the sugar skull from the day of the dead too, I found the perfect hat for it. You pulled it off really well!

  8. man, what an amazing costume, how refreshing than the slutty nurse, devil, angel, cop costumes. (sorry to any of those readers who did wear that) I wish I dressed up this year, but couldn't think of anything cool enough. I hope you drank lots of tequila
