I decided to do the dial de los metros and I did a trial run the day before. I didn't turn out GREAT, but I decided to be more patient and go with it the next day.
Since I'm the self proclaimed "Queen of Selfies" I took a selfie with everyone at the party. You'll get a good idea of how my make up looked and how it got worse and worse
So here's how I made my costume:
I used white face paint and painted my face white. I just used my fingers, but a sponge would have been nice.
I then outlined my eyes with a black eyeliner and used the same eyeliner to make the flowers around my eyes.
I filled in the red with a paintbrush and red face paint.
Next I made an upside down heart on my forehead. I then just drew on the spiderweb with a paintbrush and black face paint. I filled in the web with black eye shadow and a shadow brush.
To do the nose I again did an upside down heart and then just filled it all in.
Guess what I did on my chin? Upside down heart and filled it in.
I made two lines from the corner of my mouth out and then drew on the stitches on the lips with a thin paintbrush.
I freehanded the swirls on my cheeks with the same paintbrush method.
I realize it could have been better, but for doing it twice in my life, I was pleased.
I bought the flowers in the artificial flower section at Walmart. I tore them off the stems and then used a bobby pin to secure them.
Believe it or not, I had this red and black dress and I had NEVER worn it.
I'm not usually a dress up for Halloween kind of gal, but I loved it and had a LOT of fun. I loved that all the ladies showed up in costume AND none of them were slutty. What is it about middle aged women thinking Halloween is their opportunity to dress like a skeeze? Is that a word?
