Definitely not 'the sugar plum fairy'.....!!

My very gorgeous daughter has always as long as I can remember enjoyed dressing up, so you can imagine what fun she has each year at Halloween. For the party this year she was, apparently, a 'sugar skull Mexican day of the dead' type person/thing...I have no idea either! If you'd like to see the step by step method she used to put this look together check out her blog (Midnight Pie). Last year she was luminous green and 'Frankensteins's Bride' and then there was Medusa, oh my you should have seen the snakes!  It's a little disconcerting seeing your 'child' (she is 27 but still my child) driving off looking like 'the living dead' This how I prefer to see her below..... Have a fun Halloween.....!!

  6. Great shot and great makeup work, she looks so beautiful as a Catrina (La Calavera Catrina ('The Elegant Skull') is a 1913 zinc etching by Mexican printmaker José Guadalupe Posada. The image has since become a staple of Mexican imagery, and often is incorporated into artistic manifestations of the Day of the Dead in November, such as altars and calavera costumes. The etching was part of his series of calaveras, which were humorous images of contemporary figures depicted as skeletons, which often were accompanied by a poem. - Wiki) I'm so glad that your daughter choose this Mexican theme for Halloween!

  7. My wife has a Dia de los Muertos collection in her home office. Most are full figures of very small people. She has one skull that is probably a little larger than actual size. Your daughter's face painting has some similarities to the painted skull that Julie has. Maybe she plans to post it for Halloween tomorrow. I don't know what she has planned.

    Your daughter's face painting is scarier than the real Dia de los Muertos skull.

  15. Great, scary but still fascinating! Don't worry 'kids' well beyond fifty are usual here and their moms still call them 'bimbi'. This is the plural of 'bimbo', a Tuscan affectionate word for a male kid, which has nothing to do with its counterpart in English.

  25. My first thought when I saw the photo was that there's a very beautiful woman under all of that makeup!

    Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  26. She is definitely an artist. Her face paint is amazing! I like her both ways, but her first look probably wouldn't be accepted the rest of the year. :)

  27. Me again! Re your question on The Villages: It seems just about every one of the 80,000 people who live in The Villages drives a golf car (they don't call them "carts"!)

    This is just a typical scene on any evening in either of the two downtown areas. This shot is in Lake Sumter Landing (the other downtown area is Spanish Springs) and behind the golf cars and regular cars are a variety of stores including a Starbucks Coffee shop.

    Have a great week!

  29. I love it! And what an artist indeed! And a lovely young woman without the paint as well! I'd be willing to bet that she has fun year round, with or without the costumes! Hope you both have a great Halloween!
