I drug myself out of bed at 5:30 this morning to get inking with Sharpies on my daughter Jamie for Halloween dress-up day at junior high. About an hour later, Sarah came out of her room, a ghost, having done her own make-up and wearing a repurposed angel costume from last year and a black wig. Scaaarrry-fun!! I ran her sweet-and-creepy mug through a Photoshop filter for extra drama!
Jamie got tats of school-pride lettering, the school mascot (a bantam rooster), her name and a cross with wings she designed and I copied. We attached pink hair extensions to her own hair and she wore a pink studded collar and (magnetic) lip piercing. Not quite sure what she is, but she was no doubt feeling pretty cool leaving for school, because it’s just plain fun to change your appearance completely for a day.
It will be interesting to see how the make-up, tattoos, and all that fake hair fare by the end of the day!
